Becs and Tom met at a festival and quickly bonded over their shared love of Casio watches. In Becs own words, we're "both big fans - they tell you the date AND the day as well as the time - what's not to like?!". They bought each other gold ones when their original ones were a bit on the battered side.
After three consecutive Valentines' (teacher, Becs did her own show and tell) of Tom's not-so-romantic-but-absolutely practical gifts, Tom surprised Becs with a romantic, and personal proposal.
"It was amazing! Callum, Tom's brother, unfurled the banner from Alister's yacht and I nearly choked on my Haribo Strawbs!" Becs
A few months later, and they said their 'I dos" in the beautiful Clissold House, Stoke Newington, in front of their closest friends and family. Weddings are always full of laughter, but this wedding topped the charts!
After a champagne reception on the terrace, they continued to The Peasant in Clerkenwell to celebrate. The Peasant is a gorgeous, quirky gastro-pub. Filled with natural light and the owners' circus memorabilia and art.
