Mark and Sarah met when they were 16 and 17 years old in their local pub. They were childhood sweethearts and were together for eight years before they tied the knot. They’d shared many happy moments and made lots of lasting memories together, and Sarah couldn’t wait for Mark to pop the question.
Mark (finally, in Sarah’s words!) proposed to Sarah at the Bluebell Hotel in Coleford in February 2012. Sarah chose the ring herself, and the eager bride to be knew she didn’t want a long engagement. They began planning for a wedding to take place later that year.
Their winter wedding took place at the bride’s local church with 100 guests in attendance. Their wedding was modernised with a personalised sermon and a special reading.
