Many couples dream of a wedding that wouldn't look out of place on the set of a film, but for many that film isn't Batman... with Dave being a superheroes fan, the couple embraced the theme to comic and beautiful effect. Bride, Roz, tells us about her big day:
Tell us how you met Dave.
We met through some friends, then on a night out I dropped my earring down the toilet, Dave was the first person I saw so I asked if he’d mind rescuing it for me which he did, he’s been glutton for punishment ever since.”
Was it long before you got engaged?
We got engaged in June 2011. We were on holiday in Spain with a couple of friends and Dave proposed at a lovely little restaurant called La Finca. He got down on one knee and popped the question and then applauds erupted. Then my thunder was stolen by the waiter bringing his ring out which he had lost the day before in their swimming pool!
Was your wedding planning story one full of comic-worthy adventure?
Oh, it was the best experience. We wanted a marquee in a nice outdoor setting somewhere and I stumbled upon The Walled Garden at Cowdray Park online. My mum gave me the advice to not book the first thing you see… but I ended up not listening, we just knew it was the perfect place. I found the planning process easy and stress free which is lucky. We just went with the flow and it all fell into place. I miss the planning a lot!
What was your most memorable part of the day?
Every single second of it, from the minute we woke up to the minute we went to bed. I think the biggest surprise was how magical it felt having all the people you adore in one place and knowing they are all there to celebrate love with you. It was also amazing to see all our planning come together, everything looked so pretty.
Do you have any advice for other couples getting married?
Just enjoy everything from the moment you get engaged. It truly is such a brilliant thing. You’re celebrating your commitment as a couple, there’s nothing difficult or stressful about that!
“I met Roz through her sister who is one of my wife’s best friends," says photographer David Craik. "I had also photographed her sister's wedding so Roz and Dave had seen my work before. Roz and Dave’s wedding was one of the very best weddings I’ve photographed, everything just came together perfectly.
“The venue was beautiful, Roz and Dave were relaxed and ready to have the time of their lives, and the way they decorated the venue, dressed the tables and dressed themselves was so photogenic.
“Dave is a big superhero fan, so they made sure they had aspects of both of them present somehow – the table settings were amazing, so interesting. His stamp was the superhero table plan and table names and hers was the vintage style tableware.”
