RC – How did you meet Matt?
Funnily enough Matt and I met on a dating site, After many conversations we agreed to catch up for a coffee and have been inseparable ever since.

RC – How did Matt propose?
New Years Eve 2014 – I came home from work and was making something to eat in the kitchen, when I turned around Matt was behind me on his knee with the ring box and asked me to marry him, After the initial shock wore of there were tears and laughter.

RC – Is there a particular reason as to why you chose your venue?
We chose to have our wedding at Atlantic Group’s venues Sketch & Sumac in the Docklands, as Matt wanted to have a beach wedding and I originally wanted a garden wedding. We both compromised and decided an indoor waterfront venue would be perfect for us. The venue itself is very modern, sophisticated and elegant which was what we were after.

RC – Your favourite part of the wedding?
My favorite part of our wedding was our first dance as Matt and I had taken a few lessons at Viva La Dance in Croydon and had a small routine. It was one of the first opportunities for us to be together and have a bit of fun, as it can be so overwhelming with so much to take in during the day.

RC – How did the dress make you feel?
The dress was simply gorgeous, I felt like a million dollars wearing it and it fit me like a glove whilst still being very comfortable.

RC – Tips for brides-to-be!
I would say to those preparing to get married or planning – take it all in and don’t sweat the small stuff. It is very easy to get carried away and trust me emotions run high when it is something of this magnitude. Make sure that your wishes above others are carried out as you can’t do it over.  Mostly though have fun and enjoy being in LOVE !
