Today’s never ending love story belongs to Colin and Natalie who recently had their Hartford House wedding shot by the brand new team from Jack and Jane Photography. Jack and Jane Photography was previously known as Laura Jane Photography, who recently re branded. Their work is still exceptional and the new name suits this power couple perfectly. One cannot go wrong with a Midlands wedding and the Hartford House is the perfect venue. We hope that you will enjoy today’s post.
I Propose | Elaborate on how the two of you met.
Colin and I met at university in the Gold-Coast, Australia 7 years ago. At first we didn’t think we were each others type but instantly became best friends. For 3 years he would pick me up in his beat up blue four wheel drive and we would go everywhere together. After 3 years I moved to London and he moved to Zimbabwe. On the night before he left he told me he loved me. We did 2 years of long-distance, before he he finally joined me in London and then we moved back to Australia (Sydney) together.
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down.
Although I was expecting it he still managed to surprise me. He picked me up from work on a Monday afternoon and said that his grandma had given us two tickets to see Swan Lake in the city. He had packed an outfit for me and whisked a very tired me off to the city. He parked the car at this stunning spot which overlooked the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. He was acting very very strange but I still didn’t get it. I only got it when he got down on one knee and showed me the beautiful diamond ring. He said “Be my wife?”
The Big Day | Tell us the most memorable moment of your wedding day.
The most memorable moment of my wedding day is Colin’s vows. We had already had a mini ceremony in Australia (for all the paperwork) so I was expecting us to be so emotional but we weren’t. Seeing everyone in South-Africa was so special. It was a love fest that brought two different cultures together. I walked down the aisle with my Dad and my Grandpa and I had beautiful ballet dancers (one of those dancers was my best friend from primary school)…but his vows to love me, cherish me and be my husband stands out the most in my heart and mind.
I Quote | Describe in one sentence your wedding day.
A fairytale beginning for two best friends.
Forever & Always | Any advice for future brides.
No matter how organised you are minor things will go wrong-don’t let them spoil your mood. Whether it be unexpected guests, pushy family, a cake malfunction or sick dj…but remember that the most important thing is that you are marrying your best friend. So have fun and enjoy him and your family on your big day. You can always fix/redo those little things/details on your 10 year anniversary party.
