Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Rebecca

This week I have been chatting to the lovely Rebecca all about her wedding day! Hi Rebecca, first of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day?Thank you! It’s almost six years ago now – September 2012!Tell me a bit about yourself and your partner. When and where did you first meet?We first met at an accountancy course at Caer Rhun Hall. Everyone except for us two were staying at the college so as I walked back to the car I noticed he was as well. We both said “hi, are you local?” at the sametime! Following day we got chatting and I said that my fave comedy was Red Dwarf… we started quoting Red Dwarf lines to each other and as they say, the rest is history.How did they propose? Or was it you who popped the question?He proposed to me at a Red Dwarf Convention in Birmingham. We were at a Q&A session with Chris Barrie (Rimmer) and he was fidgeting and looking miserable. I thought he was bored! Anyhow, just after the session he took me to the balcony and proposed! During the session with Chris Barrie he was uncomfortable as he was working up the courage to ask me during the session!Tell me a bit about your big day. Where did you tie the knot? Did you have a theme or a colour scheme?We tied the knot at the very same place we met – Caer Rhun Hall. After much discussion – mostly about costs – we decided that whilst it was pricier than other venues, we really wanted to get married there. The place meant so much to us – where we met, where we both studied and where we both passed out accountancy exams. Also, the place is stunning! Oh and we did manage a bit of a discount on the wedding price due to both of us being ex-students. What was your favourite memory from your day?Walking back up the aisle to the Red Dwarf theme tune being played on the harp! Oh yes we are big fans! It was brilliant! My other fave memory has to be my Taid though. Having grew up with him, he was my main man and he was in a care home at the time. But I arranged that he would come to my wedding and had people look after him whilst I wasn’t around. I am so glad that he made it to my big day as we died 3 months later. The photos of him at the wedding are the last few photos I have of him smiling and they bring me so much happiness knowing he was happy. <3Was there anything that didn’t go to plan? Or that you would perhaps have done differently?We had a bit of a disaster with the seating arrangement! Actually we didn’t have a disaster it was a slight mishap. The seating chart had included the same person twice and it had to be re-done the day before. Other than that it all went to plan. I would do one thing differently – I wouldn’t have the sweeties buffet and chocolate fountain for the evening do. It was all a bit too much!Do you have any advice for future brides to be?The day will fly by. You’ll look back and think you didn’t see a certain person and feel bad that you might have ignored someone. Trust me, no-one will be feeling offended! Everyone knows that the bride and groom are in demand on the big day so don’t worry about it. Just go with it!Thanks for taking part Rebecca!
