How Did You Meet?

“At Harrow Gymnastics Club, Emily was training as a Cheerleader, she was working on getting a particular skill for an upcoming competition. Geoff was a coach at an adult open gym session, he shouted some advice at her and they got talking, the rest is history so they say.”

The Proposal

“2016 on a holiday in Santorini. We walked (trekked in the midday sun) up to the top of Mount Thera, where the ancient city once was.  At the very edge of the ancient ruins Geoff got down on one knee and proposed with Emily’s Nan’s own engagement ring, that was given to him to propose with when he felt the time was right.”

Planning The Wedding

“Due to our love of acrobatics it was always going to be a circus theme, it had to be classy though, so went with a ‘Water for Elephants’ inspired circus theme. We made a lot of items ourselves, and actually grew the theme around some golden elephant candles Emily found in Primark.”

“We met with the Basement Florist and Fleur de Lace about a year in advance and they helped enormously, we worked together and created the perfect vintage style circus theme for us.  Red, White, Gold and a touch of blue were our colours.”
