WHY DID YOU PICK THIS VENUE AND WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL TO YOU?:
We went for lunch there before we got engaged and there was a wedding fayre on that day too.. (he knew he was going to propose to be the next month but obviously I didn't know at this point!) so we walked around and I said to him one day when we get married it needs to be here I loved it..we just knew it was the place its everything we wanted and more.. its big.. its grand and very classy.
HOW DID YOU MEET EACH OTHER?:
He is the cousin of my sister in law! and he always kept asking for her to set us up but I wasn't interested.. then one night he was drunk and liked around 30 photos of me on facebook & the rest is history!
HOW ABOUT THE PROPOSAL? TELL US EVERYTHING! :-):
Best night ever. He told me we was going to a work event of his.. said it was quite formal etc so I got myself all done up ready to go.. we pulled up to Greenwoods spa where I thought we was going for an event but he walked me across the grounds of the hotel to a candlelit pogoda where he played a video of him and his now ushers singing one of our favourite songs.. he then got down on one knee and popped the question I was in total shock! he then played a video of messages from our closest family and friends saying such lovely things about me and how they cant wait to have me in the family etc. After I sank a bottle of champagne in around 5 minutes he told us he had booked a table to dinner as we walked through the grounds he took me into a massive marquee and a big curtain come up and ALL of my family and friends (around 100 people!) came running towards me to congratulate me! then we had a massive party with a great DJ, Big cake and all the trimmings. I loved every minute.
