Stacey was introduced to Matthew by a work colleague who thought the duo would hit it off over their shared love of pizza – which they did! After three wonderful years together, and welcoming their daughter Emily that spring, the couple got engaged on Christmas Day, 2013. “Matt made me open up the first present, which was a photo book of all the holidays, trips and days out we'd had over the years, the birth of Emily and the last page was a picture of Matt holding a sign saying 'Will you marry me?' – it was so sweet and unexpected, the perfect end to the year,” recalls Stacey.
The happy pair set the big day for 16th September, 2017, at Chessington World of Adventures.
Here, Stacey fills us in on all the finer details...
My gown was perfect and exactly what I wanted – I didn't want to take it off!
Additional décor included wooden, laser-cut place name holders in the colour scheme shades, as well as a lightup LED 'love' sign, candy cart and fairy-lit backdrop behind the top table.
In the evening we had a DJ, who kept everyone entertained with party music.
The day flew by, looking back we wouldn't change a thing – all of our guests said they had a wonderful time, and some even said it was the best wedding they've attended!
