Our wedding film love story
How did you guys meet?
Through our best friends, Emma and Matt. Emma had a birthday party nine years ago and we met there.
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do? How do you spend your time?
Gemma is a teacher and Alex works in IT for an investment management company. We love spending time with family in the country and enjoy long walks, swimming and UK getaways. Gemma loves cats and Alex loves dogs! Alex is an Everton fan and Gemma tries to follow along but really only understands the shirt colour!
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
Gemma went away for a month on a school trip to Cambodia in the summer of 2019. When she came back, Alex whisked her away to San Sebastian in Spain, where he proposed on their last evening. After a lovely dinner, he took her to sit on the beach and got down on one knee. Turns out he couldn’t live without her….
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
After rescheduling several times, and our original venue not renewing their lease, we decided to get married in Gemma’s home village. It feels like that’s how it was meant to be all along; it feels all the more special now, and more personal.
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
A really fun, relaxed and sociable time – especially after the year we’ve had!
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
It’s really just themed around Gemma’s home garden. Lots of white and green. Simple and summery.
What was the hardest decision during the planning?
Having to make so many new decisions along the way with all the rescheduling and delaying.
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
Try not to overcomplicate it and only invite people you know will stick around for the rest of your life. Don’t invite people just because you feel you have to.
