We asked Bride Lindsey how they met…
Well it was in July 1998, I lived in Peterborough and I was working in a staff restaurant (not canteen, like Rob said in his speech) and he was a contractor who just happened to come in to buy a diet coke. We liked the look of each other, he gave me his phone number (house phone number, because it was before mobiles were as popular), we chatted for about two weeks and he asked me to come and live with him, which I was relieved about because I was fed up of going to the phone box! 4 weeks later 20th August 1998, I packed up my car with clothes and shoes and moved to Chepstow to live with him.
There was no big proposal, we had always said that we would get married before our son, Leo started school. So on a day trip shopping one day, we decided on a date to get married, 18th July 2015, special because it was Leo’s 4th Birthday that week and he was starting school that September, then on our anniversary of 15 years together, Rob bought me a beautiful diamond ring.
Our wedding day was the most perfect day ever! Two years of planning and it turned out perfect in every way. The venue was amazing and although I was a little concerned I would have no control of things on the day, the staff at the venue were just fabulous! I put a lot of effort into my centrepieces, table plan etc, so to see the colour scheme all come together was lovely. We are really glad we hired the photo booth and Lynsey Pugh the wedding singer as they were both brilliant and all of my guests complimented them.
Our memories of the day will be with us forever, but having an amazing photographer to put the whole day into photos was the best money we will have ever spent.
