Tour manager Danielle and art editor Kevin met through mutual friends over 12 years ago. "We all used to hang around in a big group so we had known one another for a while before we properly got together," Danielle tells us. It took Kevin 10 years of dating before he finally got down on one knee. "Kevin surprised me with a trip to Venice and a few of my friends suggested he might propose over there. But I thought he definitely wouldn't if he knew people were expecting it," Danielle recalls.
It transpired that Kevin had double bluffed his bride-to-be and as they took a trip on a gondola he popped the question. "Kevin proposed with a 'dummy' ring as he wanted a good friend of ours to make the real one. I got to design it and we spent months finding the perfect diamond, which was a lot of fun!"
Here, Danielle explains more about how their big day came together...
I had three bridesmaids who were my best friends; Rachel, Leanne and Charlotte. They all fell in love with the same dress from Dessy and I found some big corsages online, which we attached to them.
I gave all the ladies vintage tea-cup candles as favours.
Kevin's dad kindly made the cake for us.
My something old was a hip flask my father-in-law gave to me.
The best part of the day was the ceremony. Hearing the vicar say `you are now husband and wife' was quite surreal.
We hired a vintage green Routemaster bus to transport all our guests to the church.
