About Brandon and Georgia -

Brandon and Georgia met at a mutual friend party. Brandon was dressed in a very loud Hawaiian shirt, floral shorts and a pink bandana. Georgia thought he was a right idiot. He approached her and complimented my outfit, specifically my sunglasses, before introducing her to all his friends demanding they appreciate her outfit too! He spent the night making her laugh with his random chat before giving her his bandana and telling her I would have to see him again to give it back. They messaged the next day and saw each other again the day after. From then on, they saw each other every week before they officially started their relationship.

They have now been together for 4 years.

Where did you have your first date?

This is debatable. It was a while before we had an official first date.

When we first started seeing each other, we never had a proper first date. We did lots of activities, went for meals, watched movies, went for walks together without it being labelled a date, and just enjoyed time together before Brandon had to go away again for work. Our first proper date was when we were officially together and we went to Nandos.

Who proposed to whom? and how? I wanna know the mushy stuff

Brandon proposed to Georgia on Christmas Morning.

Brandon tried to force me for a windy cold walk down the beach. I was fairly reluctant! Brandon convinced me we could stop along the way for a drink and spend time together before a busy day with family.

We walked quite far before I asked when we could stop for a sit-down, I didn't know Brandon was so nervous that he wasn't ready to stop. Brandon laid out a picnic blanket in my favourite spot on the dunes at Holkham.

He told me he had an extra Christmas present for me so I had to turn around until he was ready. Whilst facing the sea, he handed me a box and told me to open it. It was empty, I thought it was some joke I didn't understand. He told me to turn around, to him on one knee with a ring in his hand. It wasn't long before we were both crying. He tried to give a lovely speech but had to cut it short! He put the ring on my finger and had to ask for confirmation as I hadn't been able to say YES through my blubbering. We sat and drank champagne before sharing the news with all our family.

** I'm crying** I am such a soppy bugger! I took them back to the beach for their engagement session - It was magical

I wanted to know why they picked what they did for their wedding day so I asked them some questions - This always helps me to see what is important to my couple.

Why did you pick the venue for your special day?

We loved Oxnead as soon as we drove through the gates. We were amazed at the house but more so the gardens and peacefulness of the location. We liked how everything was at one location, not having to move locations was important to us. There was so much to the whole venue, the multiple areas to have the ceremony, the rooms for guests, the huge barn, everything was what we wanted. We booked it as we were leaving the venue, we fell in love with it straight away and knew we had to get married here.

Why did you choose the colours for your wedding day?

We are not super loud people and wanted something elegant and smart.

We chose shades of blue to match Brandon's RAF uniform, it's also his favourite colour.

Pink just goes nicely with blue!

What was the biggest challenge when planning your wedding day?

Ensuring we could get everyone to the wedding

We both have big families, making sure we had everyone we possibly could.

What TOP TIP would you give other couples to help when they are planning their wedding day?

Compromise - We both had ideas of how we wanted our wedding and they didn't always match each other. We discussed our opinions and ideas together and thought about how we could either incorporate both of our ideas or if we couldn't agree to find something completely different instead. We found in our planning that we both had different priorities, so Brandon wanted control over the cake and entertainment and I wanted more control over the layout and little details in decorations. We made sure we both approved of each other's choices though.
