Musicians Lauren and Tim met in the most romantic setting – a wedding – where a mutual friend did some skilful matchmaking. "We ended up talking late into the night," Lauren says. And the rest is history. "I went on a four-week U.S. tour with Rick Astley," Lauren says. "While I was away, Tim worked on fixing up our house." His plan was to propose to Lauren in their wonderful new home when she got back, but it didn't quite pan out that way. Tim got booked for a gig in Egypt, with the flight departing an hour after Lauren arrived back in London.

Jhuliana and Jonathan celebrated their intimate nuptials in a London restaurant resplendent in pastel tones.

Arran was determined not to be 'friend-zoned' and kissed me in the underground."... read more

Carl and Jack surprised their guests with a nontraditional wedding that broke all convention. We have to confess to stifling a giggle as Carl tells us how he and Jack met for the first time. "It was a night like no other… actually it was just like every other," he laughs. "We met in the student union during Jack's first week of university; I was a second year and helping to run an LGBTQ+ evening with my best friend. Needless to say, I didn't take the stewarding role very seriously. Tom introduced me to an old school friend and her new quiet flatmate. I think I fell in love instantly… but to tell the truth, I can't remember."... read more
