Stephen and Karen met online, and they knew almost instantly they’d be together forever. After just eight weeks of dating, Stephen told Karen he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. After four years together, the couple became husband and wife during an emotional wedding cermeony celebrated with 70 members of their friends and family.
The Happy Couple
Karen and Stephen didn’t get engaged as such, it was more of a natural decision as they knew they were destined to be together. On Boxing Day 2011, whilst they reveled in the festive spirit, Stephen said: “We should start planning our wedding!”. The couple then chose a ring together, and spent the next nine months planning the perfect day, where they could celebrate their love with 70 of their closest friends and members of their family.
The following autumn the couple tied the knot in a romantic and traditional church ceremony, followed by a vintage themed reception at the Railway Hotel where they enjoyed excellent food and a disco so they could party the night away. After the wedding, they had a short break in Norfolk, and are currently looking forward to going on their honeymoon to India in February, to enjoy some time away as husband and wife.
