I am a keen reader of your fantastic website, and was able to use black bride and groom to help me plan my own wedding – Elizabeth
How did you meet?
Ten years ago as young college students we met in the centre of our home town, Bristol.
We exchanged numbers and began to date. Darren proposed to me during a trip to Rome, we had a long engagement of five years before we tied the knot. We have now built a life together and live by the city centre with our French bulldog Franklin.
What was the best highlight of your wedding day?
We both agree that the highlight of our wedding day was listening to each other’s vows, which we wrote ourselves. It was definitely meaningful and very emotional.
What advice would you give other couples in the planning process?
Always, always haggle, don’t take the first price you get, you will save lots of money. We also got married in autumn which saved us money and allowed us to use our wedding budget in other areas such as food and drinks.
