We asked them both a few questions about them and their beautiful Winter Wonderland Wedding. This is what they had to say…

How did you guys meet? Who made the first move?

We met two years before getting married on Instagram! I (Lauren) slid into David’s DM’s!

How did you become engaged?

David proposed 11 months into our relationship in Eastwell Manor Canterbury. It was so special, he hired a private dining room and got on one knee.

What was your vision for your day? Did you have a theme or inspiration for your wedding?

We both wanted a Christmas wedding with a Winter Wonderland theme! Winters Barns was just perfect for it!

Did you have any wedding mishaps in the planning process? Any funny stories to tell? (Even if they weren't funny at the time!)

David and I learning our first dance routine to Tale as old as time! We had two dance lessons to learn the routine and was David’s first-time dancing EVER. Me being a professional singer/ dancer made David feel extra nervous. He told he had two left feet, I thought he was being dramatic, but he really wasn’t! He really couldn’t dance at first. After some practice he was actually getting really good, and we actually nailed it in the end with lifts and everything. The funny thing was that we argued every time we practised!! Both getting the hump out of frustration. In the end it was sooo worth it I was so proud of David he danced so well!

Can you name one extra special moment that happened on your wedding day?

David and I made sure we took a moment for ourselves throughout the wedding, even though it was freezing outside for our photos the most special moment was when we went on the bridge and had a slow dance together taking in the moment. It was so special.

What would be your top tip to other couples planning a wedding?

Download Hitched, it tells you when you need to plan things, so everything is done on time! Also, the more help the better as it can get stressful so except help! The staff at Winters Barns help everything run smoothly.

Wow…where do I start?  Lauren and David didn’t leave one detail uncovered. The day was pure magic. Guests entered the barns through a flurry of snow (from a snow machine) straight into the ceremony barn where a string quartet greeted them. Lauren and David then tied the knot on a cloud of smoke as if in a true fairy-tale. They then had their meal which ended with a game of bingo lead by Lauren’s legend of a Nan, a family Christmas tradition.

The dancefloor then filled when Lauren and David opened the evening reception with their, what felt professional, first dance. This being said, the real wow moment for me was when Lauren sang to David. I had got to know the lovely Lauren well through the planning process, little did I know she had a voice which would take anyone’s breath away! The whole room was in silence completely mesmerised as she sung.

This was a truly magical day, and it honestly was a pleasure to be part of such a beautiful couple’s day.
