Samantha & Jonathan
How did you meet?
The modern way . . the internet! (My Single Friend .com)
When did you know they were the one?
From the first date I knew it was something very special, I couldn’t stop smiling walking home after our first date.
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
His sense of humour, his intelligence and his blue eyes.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
I tried on so many dresses in different bridal boutique and didn’t fall in love with any. My best friends advice was to find a style I loved on Instagram or Pinterest rather than just trying lot of stores. I spotted my Harlie dress dress on Instagram and I knew it was the one, thankfully I loved it just as much when I tried it on!
Who proposed and how?
He proposed and it was a pretty spectacular setting! We were sailing with friends in the British Virgin Islands and we spotted a tiny idyllic deserted island which we decided to go explore. It was absolute paradise and Jon decided there were nowhere else on earth that could ever top this destination so he proposed unplanned and without a ring! Because we were there with friends we were lucky enough to capture my answer with a celebratory drone photo – see attached!
Where did you go to Honeymoon?
We were very lucky to take 3 weeks off work and spend 2 weeks travelling around Sri Lanka followed by a week relaxing in the Maldives. Trip of a lifetime!
