It was Lucie’s sister Laura and Jamie’s best friend ‘H’ who introduced the pair to one another back in 2004 – though Jamie admits love took its time. “We didn’t see much of each other at first, just at the odd party, and only realised we liked each other romantically after returning from a group holiday with Laura and H in 2008,” he says. "Actually, to be honest, I knew I liked her from the moment I saw her, it just took her four years to realise the feeling was mutual!”
Happily she did – prompting Jamie to get down on one knee on Madison’s roof terrace in London. “I asked her to come and see the view from the other end of the terrace, making up some terrible excuse about being able to see West Ham’s new stadium – which
clearly she was dying to see,” he explains. “Once I had her on her own, I popped the question, to which Lucie shouted ‘Really?’ Thankfully, after what seemed like an
eternity of being crouched down awkwardly on one knee, she said ‘yes’.”
Here, the couple share all the details of their wintry wedding day…
Expecting winter weather, we didn't want to be in and out of different venues, and at The Lawn, we could have the ceremony and reception under one roof.
We loved the Orangery where we had our wedding breakfast – and the fact that it was separated off from the evening area to keep everyone in the same place.
I was rocking a pair of sparkle-toe Converse under my dress. I felt comfortable and feminine but still with my 'Lucie' edge!
We used large lanterns with candles for our ceremony table.
We had trees with candles hanging from the branches for our centrepieces.
Our florist put it all together, exactly as I'd pictured.
We wanted a wintry, snow-covered village on top of our cake made out of gingerbread.
One tier was chocolate, the other lemon and the sides were decorated with edible icicles and snowflakes.
