During the months leading up to Hannah and Paul's beautifully sunny wedding day last June we were given the opportunity to really get to know them both not just as one of our wedding couples but as friends. Right from the start it was clear to see not only how much these two are in love, but also the strength of their friendship and commitment to one another. We were so honoured to be involved and to witness this fantastic couple's union and I hope that we remain friends for a long time to come. They initially got in touch with us after a recommendation from their videographers, Joined Heart Wedding videos (thanks guys!), a team of two, Richard and Peter who we have worked with many times over the years.
I asked Hannah, how did you both meet and how did Paul propose?
"We met at The Plough in Killingworth. I worked there as a barmaid and Paul came in with his friends. He asked me out a few days later and we've been inseparable ever since.
On Christmas Day, Paul gave me tickets for us to fly out to New York on January 2nd. We spent our first morning around Central Park and Paul got down on one knee and proposed next to the frozen lake by The Plaza Hotel."
A few days after the big day, we found this message on our facebook page:
A"Would like to say a huge thank you to Nigel & Christina who just made saturday fantastic! You we're both amazing and we couldn't thank you enough! Can't wait to see the photographs! I'm sure they are going to be phenomenal! Your such an amazing, professional and inspirational couple and I hope our marriage is half as happy and amazing as yours! Love Hannah & Paul xxxxxxx
Thank you to you both for inviting us to join with you on your very special day. You are both clearly made for one another and you are both going to make phenomenal parents to your little boy due in April. I hope that we get to meet him! We have loved the journey of working with you both and wish you all of our best wishes for your future. x
