Amanda & Jason's Real Wedding

Amanda and Jason met through friends who set them up on a date on Amanda’s birthday. They were together for two years before Jason surprised Amanda with a Valentine’s Day proposal! The couple married at Banham Zoo with lots of quirky homemade touches. 

Jason & Amanda-Valentine's Day Proposal

Jason arranged for Amanda’s sister and her partner to come over on Valentine’s Day for a cosy evening in. They were all playing charades, when Amanda was trying to guess Jason’s four word movie. He dropped down on to one knee and pulled out a ring, just as Amanda’s sister pulled out her camera. Her mum, dad and younger sister walked in, carrying a cake and balloons ready to celebrate. As Amanda is so close to her family, it was the perfect proposal.

They spent 13 months planning their special day, which took place at Banham Zoo and featured lots of animals! In an unusual twist, they cemented their union with Jason taking his new wife’s last name, instead of Amanda taking his.

After their unique wedding, the couple followed Amanda’s family tradition by honeymooning at home in Hemsby.
