All Because Two People Swiped Right!
Updated: Apr 25
Yes you guessed it, Katie and Ben met via an online dating app. They are the most beautiful couple you would ever want to meet, both of us fell in love with them from the first moment we met them on our video call.
Katie and Ben became engaged when Ben proposed to Katie on 4th April 2021. Ben suggested going for a walk at Carn Marth Cornwall and said he was going to take his wetsuit and go for a swim.
After diving down to the bottom to see if he could touch the bottom he got out of the water with something in his hand and before Katie could see what it was, he was down on one knee with an engagement ring! Katie said that she burst into tears into tears and said ‘yes’ and it turns out that Ben had sneaked the ring into the water on his baby finger and nervously swam with it, hoping it wouldn’t fall off!” Ben said “I was a bit embarrassed when Katie started crying and screaming at the side of the water when other people were quietly fishing!”
The wedding day itself was beautiful and the weather was very hot and sunny, the ceremony and reception was held Kehelland Trust in Cornwall because it offered a mostly outdoor venue. “We liked the fact that it was a blank canvas that we could make our own".
Katie wore a Maggie Sottero dress called Macey. Katie said “I chose it because I felt great wearing it and it was a flattering style,” and she looked amazing!
Ben wore a casual outfit consisting of a white long-sleeved shirt, a pair of stone-coloured chinos, braces and a sage-green bow tie. The ceremony itself was held in the orchard and the afternoon and evening was spent on the lawn relaxing, drinking and playing lawn games, Katie and Ben had hired for the day.
During the evening, they had a DJ and Katie and her dad did a surprise dance for everyone which started slow and then burst into a version of We Are Family by Sister Sledge!
We had such a wonderful day with Katie, Ben, their family and friends that we didn't want to leave.
