RACHEL & JONNY

HOW DID YOU FALL IN LOVE?

We first met when we worked together in McDonalds over 10 years ago. After that, we both went our separate ways until 5 years later when I spotted Jonny playing rugby on the TV. We got talking again and went on a few dates and things blossomed from there. A further 5 years later, we got engaged on Bracelet Bay following the birth of our son, Ted.

RACHEL'S TOP TIPS

  1. Book as soon as possible. From the venue to the band, make-up artist to photographer, book ASAP to ensure you get what you want.
  2. Relax and trust the staff at Oldwalls. As a person who likes to be in control, I found the morning of the wedding quite difficult. However, the staff at Oldwalls are so experienced and organised, there really is nothing to worry about!
  3. Take some time out with your new husband/wife. We went to Llangennith beach for photos after our ceremony and this was a great chance to have some peace and quiet as newlyweds.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE OLDWALLS GOWER?

We went to a wedding at Oldwalls last year and loved everything about the venue. Everything you need is in one place and having the venue to ourselves really made it special. The rooms are all situated on the grounds which made us feel like we were on holiday with all our friends and family. The décor is modern and tasteful and everything is clean and designed to a high standard. The grounds are beautiful and ideal for photos. We stayed at Mulberry house the night before the wedding and that was just the icing on the cake!
