Jennifer & Mark's Real Wedding

Jennifer and Mark tied the knot after a two and a half year engagement at Grafton Manor in Bromsgrove. The couple said their vows in front of 74 guests in a civil service, before having a religious blessing. They then celebrated with a DJ and giant garden games such as Jenga, dominoes and skittles, which delighted all their guests.

Mark & Jennifer-Mr & Mrs

Jennifer and Mark both worked onboard trains, but for different depots. Jennifer lived in Birmingham, whilst Mark was from Bournemouth. The couple got together following a chance meeting at Reading Station, when Mark added Jennifer as a friend on Facebook and sent her his number. She took the plunge and sent him a text shortly afterwards.

Just over a year after she sent that fateful text, the couple got engaged. Mark had always been clear that he didn’t want to be engaged to Jennifer whilst he didn’t live with her, so he presented her with a diamond ring the day he moved up to Birmingham to start the next chapter of their lives living together.

Jennifer had been allowed to choose her three favourite engagement rings, and Mark picked one out of them. He gave it to her in a relaxed proposal in their home, which took his bride-to-be totally by surprise.
