Zoe and Dan celebrated their fairytale-themed wedding at Hensol Castle

Zoe and Dan met on Bonfire Night in 2004. “A friend of mine asked Dan for his number,” says Zoe. “Dan shouted asking for a pen and paper as everyone was leaving, and a lady handed it to him and said ‘invite me to the wedding.’ We didn’t contact each other for nearly a year, but we’ve been inseparable ever since.”

Dan proposed on Valentine’s Day in 2018. “I wanted to get married before I was 30, so I told Dan he needed to pop the question soon,” laughs the bride. “He asked me to be his wife while we were in bed with our three kids.”
