During the day, the love between us and the beauty of the venue and surroundings. During the evening party, the fun and the energy.
You guys? ...What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What's important in life?
I'm an in-house lawyer at a fashion company and Crawford runs his family business in Fulham.
We both live in London and lead quite fast paced lives during the week so we really appreciate some quality time at the weekends when things slow down a bit. We love going for walks with our dog, Inca.
Happiness, love, friends, family and laughter are most important to us in life.
The proposal? ...Tell us everything!
Ah the proposal was such a magical day!
Crawford took me out for a lovely day out for my birthday last June. We started the day by going for brunch at one of my favourite restaurants, The Ivy Chelsea Garden, then we hired bikes and cycled through London's parks (it was a beautiful sunny day!).
We then went to an exhibition, had a paella lunch then drinks on a rooftop bar.
After this, Crawford took us to a stunning church ruins turned public garden called St Dunstan's in the East and this is where Crawford proposed! At first, it looked like the ring wasn't going to fit because my fingers were so swollen from the hot weather and cycling! But we squeezed it on :)
He then whisked me off to the Shangra-La in The Shard where he'd booked us an amazing suite! We then got into our swimwear and went to the sky pool for celebratory G&Ts.
Then we had dinner at a favourite restaurant of ours in Borough Market.
The next day, I had already arranged to have a bit of birthday party at a local pub, so we got to tell all of our friends and family about our engagement in person, which made it even more special!
The Venue/s? ... Why this place above anywhere else?
It is just so beautiful, very picturesque!
It also feels very peaceful and serene. We loved it from the moment we saw it.
What experience do you want to give to your guests?
We want our guests to feel like they are on a mini holiday.
We want them all to relax and immerse themselves in the wedding and the relaxed South of France vibe.
