We adore Chloe and Darren's real wedding on page 61 of the current issue!
Chloe and Darren met in 2007 while she was working at McDonald's. “He made the first move and asked for my number,” says Chloe. “We talked for months over the phone, but I wasn't used to his thick Valleys accent, so I struggled to understand him! We finally arranged to go on a date on Boxing Day.”
After nine years together, Darren popped the question on 30th September, 2016. “We're huge fans of Pink Floyd and had managed to get tickets to see David Gilmour close his world tour,” shares the bride. “We had a fantastic time, and the proposal was a complete surprise.”
Here are some of our favourite images and a list of the suppliers who made the day possible.
