Romilly and James danced the night away on the hottest day of the year at Pendrell Hall

Romilly and James met through a mutual friend at a party. “James was flying to Thailand in the early hours so apart from a quick introduction we didn’t really have time to talk,” says Romilly. “We met again on a night out and eventually had our first date four months later. We liked each other straight away, and it felt right being together.”

James popped the question during a weekend away for Romilly’s birthday. “He had booked a private house just outside of Abergavenny,” shares the bride. “On Friday morning, he put on a suit and pretended to go to work, dropping me off on route. Little did I know, three hours later he was at the private house setting up fairy lights, champagne, blankets and a picnic. Later in the day, he picked me up from work, and we headed straight to Abergavenny. He’d blindfolded me and led me to the side of the house where we sat down on a bench. It was there that he proposed. James’ mum was able the capture the moment on camera, and we spent the next two days drinking in the hot tub accompanied by our dog who made friends with the baby cows in the adjacent field.”
