Vanessa & Mark's Real Wedding

Vanessa and Mark became husband and wife at a beautiful wedding with a stylish and eclectic theme at Augill Castle. They plan on celebrating their marriage with a honeymoon to America later in the year, where they will also attend the wedding of their bridesmaid and best man!

Mark & Vanessa-The Happy Couple

Vanessa and Mark met once long ago, as his best friend Anthony and Vanessa’s best friend Angela are a couple. Mark and Vanessa were both in relationships though, and thought nothing of it. Fast forward seven years and they were being set up on a blind date!

They got on so well, and had a great laugh, so it seemed obvious that they were perfect for each other. Vanessa also felt like Mark would be a good influence on her!

Mark popped the question four years later at a restaurant overlooking the marina in Vilamoura, Portugal. Vanessa was so surprised she blurted out ‘is this a practical joke?!’ before realising he was serious! Mark gave his bride a beautiful diamond and platinum ring he’d designed himself, as he wanted to give her something different and unique.

The next 22 months were spent planning a wedding that suited the couple perfectly.
