Victoria and Harry said “I do” in mid-February this year in a traditional celebration surrounded by their closes friends and family.
The couple met at their church and after seeing each other around a few times Harry finally worked up the courage to introduce himself one night.
But they soon realised that they had actually met a few years before when she worked in a clothing store. Victoria remembered fitting him for a suit because he had a broken leg (which made it a little difficult but memorable) and Harry remembered the “cute small girl with the big personality”. So adorable!
Harry popped the question during the week of Victoria’s birthday in March 2021, Harry surprised her on the Friday afternoon saying he was taking her out for her ‘birthday’ that night instead of the Saturday.
The proposal took place during a week of torrential rain, and it had slightly cleared the afternoon Harry chose to pop the question. He set up a beautiful picnic at Victoria’s favourite spot in Fagan Park. It was the first time it stopped raining all week and as soon as they left it was torrential again – meant to be…
The most special part about it was that 2 years earlier Victoria had told her best friend that her dream proposal spot was right there in Fagan Park but nor she or Victoria had ever told anyone else! Harry really setting those standards – ugh!
Reflecting back on highlights from their Special Day, some of the best moments of the night was when the dance floor opened to everyone. 250 of Victoria and Harry’s closest friends and family, most of which we hadn’t seen in over 2 years because of the pandemic, were present. It was mayhem! 250 people all crammed on the dance floor and for the first 20 minutes there wasn’t a moment that someone wasn’t on another person’s shoulders, arms raised, having the best time! Victoria will never forget the energy, everyone was just ready to party and the dance floor was never empty. It was the ultimate party!
The most unique part of the wedding was that the disposable cameras for every table (we’re sensing a comeback)! They wanted to capture authentic moments of the night and allow our guests to show the night from their perspective. Everyone was taking pictures all night and they now have the most special photos from their guests to cherish forever…
The newlyweds couldnt think of anything they would change about their special day, it was simply that perfect!
Advice from the Bride:
“If anything, I wish I had just taken the time to enjoy the planning process a little more and stress less because I didn’t realise how worth it would be in the end.”
