Tell us about how you met and all about the proposal!
We met at university and the proposal was beautifully personal.
Wedding shopping had its stressful moments. It all took five months to put together but looking back, I enjoyed and dare I say miss the experience.
Both of us being Ugandan and as our wedding was not going to be in Uganda, we had to bring a bit of our culture to Essex! We had a Ugandan cultural dance group that performed dances from different tribes in Uganda. I think this was a highlight for many guests.
My favorite memory is dancing into a room filled with so many well wishers.
Help a bride-to-be out!
Enjoy yourselves. So much goes into planning that 24 hours so make sure every hour is memorable. Take as many pictures as your photographers can manage. Oh and smile, always!
