Vanessa & Adam's Real Wedding

Vanessa and Adam met through a mutual friend whilst Vanessa was studying for her fashion degree at Birmingham University. They married after an eight and a half month engagement in a colourful and cool wedding which saw the bride create her own unique wedding dress!

Adam & Vanessa-The Newlyweds

Adam first met Vanessa as one of his friends attended the same university as her. They all went out with the same crowd of friends a few times, before one night out led to their first kiss. Just four months later and Vanessa and Adam were setting up home together! The couple’s home life was complete with the addition of their Labrador puppy, Gaston.

After two and a half happy years together, Adam really surprised Vanessa with his proposal. He stormed into the house and proposed to her with an empty ring box, as he’d gotten too impatient to wait for the ring he’d designed to be made. The next day, the ring was ready for collection, so luckily Vanessa didn’t have to wait too long! The thoughtful groom had teamed up with Vanessa’s good friend Sarah, who’d studied jewellery design, to create the perfect engagement ring for his future wife.
