If the idea of a huge guest list fills you with dread, why not keep things simple and intimate, just like Fran and Ray did? The couple wanted to get married in a way that felt right for them. That meant keeping things small. They had just 15 guests for their ceremony, and their reception was held in their favourite restaurant.
“Ray and I met through our mutual love of weightlifting (hence the cake!)”, began the bride. “We actually spent the first year of our relationship apart – Ray on Guam and me in Australia. We spent a lot of time in airports and on planes. It was hard but we knew our future was worth it. He proposed on a beautiful tropical beach on Guam, New Year’s Eve 2013.”
“We didn’t want a big wedding”, she continued. “All that mattered was having our very closest people around us in a beautiful setting. One of the highlights for me was that my mum surprised me by coming over from the UK for the wedding, and Ray’s parents came all the way from the USA! I was extremely nervous about meeting them for the first time the day before the wedding, but they were incredibly sweet and loving to me.”
