Tell us about your love-story leading up to your special day (engagement or how did you meet one another)? It was a 20 year vow renewal as we didn’t have the budget to do a proper wedding, etc at the time. Our photographer got drunk pre the wedding so we didn’t even have photo’s of the day. So in essence, it was a promise we made each other that we’ll do it over in 20 years and we’ll do it properly!
Did your wedding have a theme, if yes please give details: We didn’t have a theme, but coming to Bygracealone as a venue, it provides its own. Our colour scheme was Lavender, white and silver.
