Shannen and Daniel met at school at the age of 12. They started dating at the age of 16 and have been together ever since. Together 12 years this summer, they have been married for three.
They got engaged in Venice on their seven-year anniversary, Dan organised a private speed boat which took the couple on a tour of the grand canal and they stopped for lunch at The Gritti Palace, it was an unforgettable experience for the pair.
Their wedding took place at Tyn Dwr Hall in July 2018.
We booked on one of the very first open days before the hall renovation was completed. The best part about planning our wedding was getting the opportunity to visit our venue on many occasions before the wedding, I think it really helped us envisage our special day.
So many things… but most of all, simply beautiful.
Beautiful, Unique and Elegant.
We had a Civil Ceremony.
Poppy was our wedding manager and she couldn’t have done enough for us. She was so helpful at answering countless questions and emails.
Getting to visit on numerous occasions.
Our favourite photos of us are actually nestled in the woodland area under the trees.
Perfect, everyone was on top form. We remember Andrew the night manager being very nice and helpful to us as the night come to an end.
Its exclusivity and the fact it has so many beautiful rooms and not just one. The option to get married outside is also great.
The weather… which is silly, as you can’t control it.
We didn’t have a set theme for the day, but as a big fan of monochrome, we kept the flowers just white with lots of green foliage. The men wore black tuxedos and the bridesmaids matched in black bespoke dresses.
We went with the BBQ, it was amazing... we are big foodies, so the food was important to us. Everyone commented on how great the food was.
For the ceremony we had a String Quartet which was beautiful, the inspiration came from a performance at one of the hall’s open days. In the early evening we had a very talented performer/musician called Sam Wise and then afterwards kept it simple with a DJ in the evening.
Has to be the father of the bride's speech. Everyone loved it and tried their best to hold back the tears.
Everyone dancing to Proud Mary – Tina Turner.
There was a small group left at the end, but a few of our close friends were up the latest!
Brides – Bring flip flops for the dancefloor and try not to worry about the things you can’t control, like the weather.
