Hannah and Chris – A Festival Themed Wedding
Hannah and Chris met at Notting Hill Carnival in 2011. Standing in the queue to an afterparty at a pub, Hannah realised she had lost her ticket! Luckily, Chris was standing behind her and offered her his spare, and the rest is history. 4 years later, he proposed with a plastic ring from Primark (he wasn’t quite brave enough to choose a real one)!
They celebrated their wedding day at The Crown & Thistle in Abingdon with a festival theme, as the couple have always enjoyed going to festivals together. Their flowers were placed in children’s wellington boots and their tables were named after festivals they had attended. Hannah chose a beautiful Maggie Sottero dress which made her feel (and look) like a total film star.
Entertainment was an important part of their day – Hannah put ‘how well do you know us’ quizzes on each table for their guests, provided a large deck of playing cards, as well as specifying rules for their favourite drinking game, ‘Ring of Fire’. It was a game that they always used to play at parties and was a great break from dancing (and eating!) for their friends.
Their favourite part of the day was seeing the totally packed dance floor and partying away with all their friends and family.
