The venue

They married at The Park Inn in Llanederyn in June 6, 2014.

How they met

Becci and Jeremy met through Facebook and became an official couple on June 6, 2012.

Becci said: “After a lot of bantering on a mutual friend’s comments over the course of a couple of weeks we decided to get together.”

For their first date the went for a walk on the beach and talked. They met up the next day and talked some more.

Becci said: “We clicked and realised within a couple of days this was fate and we haven’t been apart for more than a couple of hours since that day.”

The proposal

Jeremy popped the question exactly a year to the day they got together. He arranged a meal at Bella Italia in Cardiff Bay.

Becci said: “During the meal he got down on bended knee and asked me to be his wife.”

The wedding

Becci and Jeremy did not have a traditional wedding.

Becci said: “We decided we wanted it to be more about our two families becoming one as we have five children and made them the centre of our day.”

The bridal party arrived at the hotel at 8am on the day. Becci had six bridesmaids, three of which were daughters Georgia, Aimee and Ffyon.

Becci said: “We spent the day getting ready in our beautiful dresses and me with my white knee-length Dr Marten boots with angel wings on the side!”

The highlight of the day was when Becci’s sons Rhys and Dylan gave her away.

She said: “Even though my father is alive he didn’t walk me down the aisle, my sons did. They made me so proud that day they acted like proper gentleman and seemed so grown up.

“When the lady who married us asked ‘Who gives this woman?’ Rhys stood up straight and uttered the words ‘My brother, sisters and I do’ which made everyone start crying.

“It was amazing to look at Jeremy and know that I was safe in his loving arms. We walked out of the room into the sunshine as man and wife and haven’t looked back since.”

The honeymoon

They went to Fishguard in West Wales. Becci said: “Jeremy and I spent our first four days alone which had never happened before. We spent time wandering around the villages and walked up mountains to see the beautiful ruins and along beaches hand in hand it was glorious. That was nine months ago and it still feels like yesterday.”
