Siobhan and Ben’s wedding ceremony took place in the grounds of the Lavender House Hotel in Devon on a beautiful sunny day in August. The couple met at the Ploughboy Inn in Saltash when the bride started bartending there. Ben was a regular and asked her out on a date. They got married after 9 years of being together, and the birth of their 2 daughters, Scarlett and Emily-Mae. Their wedding photos were taken by the fantastic Alchemy Photography.

Siobhan: “Bens proposal was not planned we had a rare shopping trip into plymouth without our daughters and he spontaneously walked me towards the jewellers and asked me to marry him and if we could go and pick my ring together. Very unexpected but was lovely.”

Elizabeth and Robin got married at the Carbis Bay Hotel in St Ives in June of this year. We’ve got an amazing interview with the bride about how the couple met (on World of Warcraft), how they finally got together and the story of the dramatic proposal. Many thanks to their photographer David, from Alchemy photography.

World of Warcraft from Sweden to St Ives

Elizabeth: “We met in a quite unconventional way. We both enjoy playing computer games, one in particular; World of Warcraft. This is an online game where you can play with millions of people around the world. I met Robin whilst playing this game around 8 years ago. Our friendship blossomed and we became closer, until after a couple of years where we decided to meet! Robin lived in Sweden at the time and flew over to England to meet me and my family, after which we considered ourselves in a relationship. For a few years after this we both flew back and forth between England and Sweden until November 2011 when Robin finally decided to move to England.”
