The Happy Couple
Tell us a little about how you met
We first met on a double date when we were 16 years old. We walked around talking and having fun. There were many more occasions like this but we became really close friends for many years. We always had a connection at a young age but the time was not right for us. Through the years we partied, went on holidays and dates together then in our early 20s after a few years of Chloe chasing me I finally seen some sense. My soul mate was there all along!
Talk us through the proposal
In June 2019 we went on a lovely holiday to Thailand. I had known for a while that this was the perfect time to ask Chloe to marry me. The white sand beaches were so beautiful so I decided to grab my go pro and take Chloe on a walk along the beach until we found a nice quiet spot. I quickly set up my go pro as if I was taking a picture of us together with the sunset, this is when I got down on one knee and asked Chloe to marry me.
Your Day, Your Way
We decided we wanted to have our whole day at The Rabbit. Due to the risk assessment the original ceremony room was not big enough to hold all of our guests so Abby and Steven quickly turned another room into a beautiful setting for our ceremony.
What made you choose The Loft to host your day?
Chloe and I saw photos of The Rabbit/The Loft prior to its opening date and immediately loved it. We were supposed to get married in 2020 in Ibiza but due to the pandemic this was not likely to happen. We both knew this was our opportunity to enquire about a wedding at The Loft. Abby was in contact with us straight away and she was beyond comforting about the whole situation as well as helpful and promising about The Loft. We had a visit to meet Abby and to see The Rabbit/The Loft and this was the icing on the cake. This Hotel/Venue was perfect in every way for us, from then we just couldn’t wait to have our family and friends here to witness us tie the knot.
Favourite memory of your Wedding Day
Chloe and I both agree that it is so hard to pick one part of the wedding as our whole day was perfect. It all ran so smoothly and we just loved it so much!
Your wedding planner and thoughts
Chloe first got the know Abby through facetime during the Pandemic. From the very start she has been absolutely amazing she was always literally only a text or email away. Everything was exactly how we wanted it and more because of Abby. We had such a laugh together and have actually all become friends which is the best part. We want to give a big shout out to our Master of Services Stephen who we met a few days before the wedding and loved him straight away. He helped massively on the day and kept us right. This man went above and beyond to make sure everything was right. These two amazing human beings are a wonder dream team. Everyone loved them!
Our top tip for a wedding day is relax, take a breath and really take the whole day in. A wedding day is the best day of your life without a doubt and it goes in so fast.
