Kate & Gareth's Real Wedding

Gareth and Kate met at a wedding, and it turned out to be a sign of things to come for this couple! After an Easter proposal, the couple were keen to get planning and married just six months after they found their dream wedding venue.

Gareth & Kate-Kate and Gareth’s Beautiful Blue Themed Wedding

Kate and Gareth met at a mutual friend’s wedding. After a brief introduction during the champagne reception, Gareth was so impressed with her he broken the golden wedding rule – he touched the seating plan and switched the place cards over so he could sit by Kate!

In 2014, the couple spent Easter in the Lake District in a cottage with Kate’s family and Gareth’s son, Lewis. Their Easter Sunday ritual includes a walk to the pub and a roast lunch, followed by an Easter egg hunt in the garden. Gareth placed an engagement ring in an egg and hid it, which was a fabulous surprise for Kate – even more so when her dad nearly found the ring first!

Gareth works in Dubai a lot so he picked up the ring on one of his trips over there. He chose a diamond solitaire, displayed on a band studded with more diamonds.

The couple joked about having a ‘crash wedding’ – they were keen to tie the knot as soon as possible. They found their perfect venue in November and booked their wedding to take place just six months later.
