Winter wonderland

Heather and Kevin tied the knot with plenty of Christmas gold and red at the Moat Wrotham for their wonderful winter wedding

Heather and Kevin met about 12 years ago in the pub where they both drank. True, there was an attraction there, but they were both just friends. That is until they met up again in October 2013 and entered into a 'whirlwind romance,' according to Heather. They were shortly engaged after Kevin proposed in Dubai for her 30th birthday, just outside arguably the most glamorous hotel in the world. How could she refuse?

Here, she reveals more about their dream day…

We love eating out and discovering cute new country pubs. We were dining at The Moat one day when we discovered that it catered for weddings too – it was just perfect for us.

Our centrepieces were huge candles placed in giant hurricane vases. It added a really warm, pretty glow to our reception.

Kevin chose his outfit all himself. He went with a designer tux with spotted braces and bow tie so he stood out.
