Sophie & Christopher's Real Wedding

Christopher and Sophie have been together since she was 17 and he was 18. They got engaged in Ibiza, and spent two years planning their wedding which took place on their eight year anniversary – which is also a Chinese lucky number!

Christopher & Sophie-The Newlyweds

Six years after they first got together, Sophie and Christopher were on holiday in Ibiza and staying in a pretty non-descript hotel. They decided to treat themselves and upgraded to the Ocean Beach hotel for their last night, where they relaxed by the pool alongside celebrities.

Just before they went for dinner, Christopher proposed to Sophie in the hotel. He’d spent ages looking for the perfect ring, and even had the bride’s mum in on it. He presented her with a bespoke ring he’d found in an antique shop.

The excited couple set their date for two years’ time, which coincided with their eight year anniversary. This was a good sign as eight is considered to be a lucky Chinese number!

Their wedding had a bumblebee theme, inspired by Sophie’s pet name for Christopher, and also included a traditional Chinese tea ceremony.
