How they met
“Andy and I were friends at school, however it wasn’t until the last year that we actually got together,” remembers Jenna.
“We went out shopping together and Andy said he was going to let me have a few hours alone,” says Jenna. “I tried contacting him a few times but his phone was off every time. Three hours later I finally got a message telling me to meet him at Bournemouth park. When I got there he was down on one knee with a large box beside him. Inside was a bunny that he had made for me at Build A Bear. He pressed the bunny and it was his voice recorded asking me to marry him,” she adds.
The bride’s outfit
We’ve got serious dress envy over Jenna’s luxurious gown that she bought from Wedding Time in Dorchester. “As soon as I put the dress on I knew instantly it was ‘the one’,” smiles Jenna.
The groom’s outfit
The couple bought Andy’s Volcom suit from an online store called KateSkates. He teamed it with a snazzy pocket square to bring the look up to date.
Jenna dressed her girls in purple party dresses from Debut in Debenhams and they were also accompanied by two flowergirls and a very sweet little pageboy.
Jenna and Andy opted for a civil service at Bridport town hall. “We chose two readings, given by my mum’s partner and Andy’s sister, as well as two of our favourite songs, Zeplike by Slightly Stoopid and Waiting In Vain by Bob Marley,” explains Jenna.
“To decorate our room we used the theme of Cadbury’s purple, ivory and butterflies,” explains Jenna. “The flowers were all arranged by Fiona Penny, and we also had ivory and purple balloons on the top table, butterfly name tags that sat on top of the wine glasses and ivory and purple favour boxes, which had chocolates in them,” she adds.
“Andy has a very talented cousin who’s been in the catering industry for years – and we couldn’t think of a better person to create our wedding cake for us,” smiles Jenna.
“My brother treated us to a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Barbados,” remembers Jenna. “It’s the most amazing place, ever!”
