I met David in May 2001 in London, we got engaged on New Years Eve in 2002 in Cardiff and we married in 2004 at The Falcondale.
I was brought up in Lampeter therefore I wanted somewhere that was close to home. The Falcondale is in a beautiful setting and is well known for hosting great weddings, as it is not part of a chain you receive very personal service which is wonderful. My brother had his wedding at The Falcondale and my grandparents used to live on Falcondale Drive so the hotel holds sentimental value and wonderful childhood memories.
We enjoyed canapes as our guests arrived to the hotel followed by a traditional chicken roast dinner. There was bacon rolls later on in the evening which the guests really enjoyed.
My dress was from House of Emmanuel in Cross Hands.
We kept the decoration very simple with no theme as such, just beautiful flowers as table centres.
The flowers were done by a family friend and they were just beautiful.
Our photographer was Raymond Jessy from Swansea. We also had disposable cameras on the tables for guests to use, these were really fun and gave us some unique and different photos.
Only do it once! Film the day, it’s the best day of your life so remember it. Make sure you select the guest list, not your parents!
