Teenage sweethearts, Katie and Tim, celebrated their wedding at the grand Stradey Park Hotel & Spa

Katie and Tim met at their local nightclub when they were teenagers. “We were introduced by a mutual friend but weren’t looking for anything serious at the time,” says Katie. “The next day Tim took me on our first date to the beach, and within two weeks we were ’official’. I don’t think either of us thought too far into the future at the time as we were so young, but we made it through university, brought a house a year after and two years on we had a beautiful daughter.”

Tim popped the question on their 11th anniversary. “We booked a night away at Celtic Manor Resort,” shares the bride. “After a lovely day at the spa, we were having a drink on the balcony getting ready to go out for a meal, when he surprised me by getting down on one knee. It was such a nice feeling phoning family to tell them, and then spending the evening in our newly engaged bubble.”
