1. How did you meet?

In our town’s local nightclub, it was the only place to go on a Friday night!We had gone to school together but never knew each other.Ryan never went out on a Friday as he played Junior football every Saturday, it just happened this Friday he was injured so had gone out to meet some friends for a drink.

2. How did you get engaged?

We had spoken about it for some time as we had been together 8 years, our parents had started to give up hope and we got up one Sunday and went in to town and bought a ring.We had both sets of parents coming for supper that night anyway as it was Mothering Sunday and we announced it then.I think they were all surprised I do remember my mother in law jumping up and down in the middle of our living room!

3. How did you choose where to conduct the ceremony and have the reception?

Colour scheme of wedding:Red, Cream and Black

Music/entertainment:We had a harpist who played during the ceremony and back at the reception during the canapés and champagne.We choose songs which meant something to us for during the ceremony and provided sheet music and she played them for us.For the reception we let her play a mixture of her own choosing.

Evening entertainment we provided ourselves, people had taken their iPods and created play lists etc for the day so it was fantastic to have a range that suited everyone.
