New York Grooms

Tell us your love story!

Not much of a love story to tell other than we met at a dive bar in NYC at 3am. HA! We started hanging out more and more and after a few months we decided we REALLY liked each other.  Have been together almost 10 years now so we guess the rest is history!

What about the proposal?

This is kind of embarrassing, but Jack proposed to me in our favorite Karaoke Bar. To me it was the most romantic thing because we used to always go to karaoke with friends when we first started dating and really bonded over drunkenly screaming into a mic. Our lives got busier as we grew out of our twenties and those random karaoke nights out got fewer and fewer. Jack took me back to our original hang out and dropped to a knee right after we did our go-to – “All or Nothing” by O Town. I always take second verse. 😊

When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?

Honestly it was immediate. We just really liked being with each other and we couldn’t hide that. We still like being with each other as much as possible. We’re sort of one of those weird couples that do everything together. Except shower – that’s our alone time.

Going into the wedding planning, what did you definitely know?

We definitely knew we wanted a true New York City wedding. Jack and I recently relocated to London with our jobs, so we knew wanted an ode to New York which has been our home for 18 years and 11 years respectively. No one knew we were moving yet, so it was special to us as a huge celebration of our love, but also a celebration of our home which raised us and brought us together.

What surprised you during planning? What was easy, what was difficult?

Soooo we learned a LOT about each other during this process. The good, the bad, the ugly. Jack is check lists, budgets, and numbers, and I am dreams, dreams, and more big dreams.  Thank GOD because we really evened each other out. We could not have done this without each other’s help and input. We kept reminding ourselves that this is supposed to be fun and we promised we would not make this stressful. Guess what, it got stressful, but so so so worth every second of the stress.

Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning your wedding that you know now?

The best advice someone gave us was to make sure you plan your honeymoon to be on a beach for at least 3 – 4 days. We didn’t realize just how exhausted we would be after it was all said and done. Your body just shuts down because it’s so full of the best emotional charge you could ever feel.

Any advice for couples planning weddings now? Anything you would have done differently or anything you’d like to add?

Just invite them. Try to have a wedding where you can have everyone you love and want there to be there. That was the most important thing for us. We HATED the thought of cutting down our wedding list just to fit within our budget. We cut other things like the cake in order to accommodate more people and it was totally worth it. I didn’t work out for months leading up to my wedding to ruin it with some crappy cake – Kidding not kidding!  😊

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

This sounds corny, but it was watching our lives completely collide in the most loving and caring way I could have ever imagined. We both have the most incredible family and friends and having them all together was everything. Watching each other beam with joy all weekend was the best memory I can take from our wedding. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Bournemouth Babes

Tell us your love story!

We met online through Plenty of Fish! I lived in the middle of nowhere and Frankie couldn’t find Mrs. Right in Bournemouth, so we both widened our search to 70km and ended up meeting for a coffee with a sea view at Urban Reef in Bournemouth. Our greyhound, Ted, decided he loved Frankie from the minute he met her – it was definitely love at first sight! After that, we were full speed ahead and making up for lost time…

What about the proposal?

We’d already discussed getting engaged, but the big moment happened on Mudeford Beach in the rain. It was very romantic, but a little soggy – including an embarrassing moment when the dog ran off and pulled Jen over in the sand at a critical moment!

When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?

From the start – we both felt like we just fitted together perfectly. Safe to say, we have never looked back.

Frankie – from the moment I saw Jen I knew she was someone very special. I remember spotting her in the car park while I was walking down to meet her, so I decided to watch as she got Ted out the car. I instantly knew I was in trouble!

Going into the wedding planning, what did you definitely know?

We knew we wanted a small, low key and personal wedding day. We wanted to incorporate people and places that were special to us, including the beach, family and friends from both near and far. We also knew we wanted good food, lots of laughter and nothing to complicated to organize!

What surprised you during planning? What was easy, what was difficult?

It was easy, particularly as we had our fabulous wedding planner, Tasha-Mae, on hand to help! We knew what we wanted and kept our ideas simple.

Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning your wedding that you know now?

Not to stress the tiny details because it all will turn out great on the day.

Any advice for couples planning weddings now? Anything you would have done differently or anything you’d like to add?

Keep it simple and do what you want – it’s your day and the things that people remember most are the personal touches (and the food and the booze!). You can’t have enough food or drink. We are still working our way through the left-over prosecco!

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

Jen – making a lifelong commitment to my wife, Frankie (as well as the incredible party and endless love shown by our friends and family!).

Frankie – Other than making my vows to Jen, my favorite part was having our photos taken, messing around and smiling on the beach.
