Danielle & Matt’s Real Wedding

Danielle and Matt first met on match.com and had their first date at Pizza Express! After just 20 months together the couple got engaged before tying the knot five months later at the Mercure Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone. 


Blue and Silver Wedding Cake

Matt and Danielle cut into a three tiered sponge wedding cake which was decorated with white icing, blue ribbon and silver hearts. Instead of the traditional cake topper, the couple opted to have their names displayed on hearts. There was also a smaller gluten free cake for guests to enjoy.


The delicious cake was made by a family member and was served on the night, but there was still plenty for everyone to enjoy after the wedding too!

In the evening a photo booth was set up, which was hugely popular – there was a queue for it at one point. There was a DJ to keep everyone dancing, and he playing the couple’s first dance song. They chose ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran as their first dance as it was what was playing when Matt proposed.

As the newlyweds are both teachers, they’re yet to go on honeymoon. They plan to jet off to Thailand, spending three days in Bangkok and seven days in Koh Samui at a more convenient time. They chose it together and picked somewhere completely different – as place they probably wouldn’t visit otherwise.
