Hilary & Alex’s Real Wedding

Hilary and Alex met through a mutual friend when Hilary moved to London. The couple started out as just friends, but a few dates soon led to love. Alex popped the question after a friend’s wedding in the Cotswolds, and they began planning their special day.


Happily Ever After

Hilary and Alex shared their first dance as husband and wife to ‘A Wink and A Smile’ by Harry Connick Jr. The party was then started with a DJ from Entertainment Direct, who blasted out a playlist described as a ‘cheese fest’!


Guests could also dress up as Isambard Kingdom Brunel in stovepipe hats, with fake sideburns and cigars, which proved very popular!

After their maritime marriage celebrations finished, the couple returned to work for a while before leaving swapping boats for planes to jet off on honeymoon. The newlyweds headed to Maui in Hawaii, with Bon Voyage, a US travel specialist based in Southampton.

The couple enjoyed the time relaxing together, snorkeling, swimming with turtles and making the most of the culture the exotic island had to offer. Alex and Hilary chose their honeymoon destination as they’d never been anywhere else that had been able to beat it.
