Marie & Nigel 29th April 2016


How You Met

Met in Swansea on a night out I was 18 Nigel was 22, friend introduced us and he nagged me Winking smilefor a while until I gave in. BUT we had a split for a few years. We were always meant to be and met again on a night out in Swansea. Soul Mates.



The Proposal

In Banff Canada on a snowy Christmas Day, Nigel put the ring in a cracker. I did not actually realise it was an engagement ring until Nigel said take a close look at the ring lol. I am not very romantic!

The Décor

Go with what your style is and what you are comfortable with. We love a bit of bling and chose a colour that we were both happy with that blended with the theme of the wedding. Also make sure the colour suits you both eg waist coats flowers etc




I was lucky to have a friend to do my stationary. It was very personal and we had our son and dog on the save a dates and the invitation’s were sent from our son. We wanted to involve him as much as we could.



Hair & Make up Divine Beauty in Gorseinon was recommended to me by many friends and I was not disappointed, very friendly, gave excellent advice and the make up lasted all day and night!

Hair by a friend again Sarah. She must have tried 20 hair styles as I was not sure what I wanted and also tried some of her own. Excellent advice. Get in touch if wanting her details.
