Rhian and Rory hosted their fun-filled celebration at Neuadd Dyfi

Rhian and Rory met on Tinder in 2014. “Rory was attracted to my smile, and I thought he looked cheeky and loved his curly hair,” says Rhian. “We spoke via WhatsApp for a few weeks and eventually went on our first date. We knew from that first meet up that we had something special.”

Rory proposed during a holiday to Venice. “It was the day before my 27th birthday, and it was a complete surprise,” shares the bride. “I’m in charge of packing when we go on holiday, so I was shocked he had managed to keep the ring from me. He had asked my dad’s permission before the trip, so my parents knew it was going to happen, however, they started to get a bit worried when days had passed, and there was no news. Rory wanted to find the perfect moment. He tried on a gondola but got told off for moving seats and making the weight uneven! He eventually found a lovely quiet spot on a bridge with no people around and asked me to be his wife.”
