Hannah & Tim | The Interview
How did you two meet?
We first saw each other on a sunny day in a train at Wokingham station on the way to the Proms in the Park in Hyde Park September 2011. We followed each other across London to Hyde Park and found ourselves in the same big group of friends. We began seeing each other shortly afterwards.
Tell us about the proposal:
Tim took Hannah to Hawaii for Christmas holiday. On the morning of the 29th December, he took her on a submarine ride off the coast of the big island, then in the afternoon asked her to marry him on a beautiful secluded beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. She said yes, then when they were about to go for a paddle, she stepped on a bee and Tim had to half-carry her back to the condo!
Tim, how did you know Hannah was the one for you?
For me it was the first date when we went out for coffee and we clicked. We were talking and everything just worked.
Hannah, how did you know Tim was the one for you?
I have no idea. I just woke up one day and could no longer imagine my life without him.
What moment was the highlight of the wedding for you?
Hannah: That’s a hard one as there are so many. I think it was during the signing of the registers. It was the first moment I really relaxed. My friends and bridesmaids were singing beautifully in the background and it was the moment it really began to feel real and was becoming official.
Tim: Definitely when Hannah finally showed up ;P
What did you enjoy most about your wedding?
Hannah: Easy. Seeing Tim and all my friends and family beaming at me all day.
Tim: I think it was getting to share the day with all my friends and family who are so dear to me.
What advice would you give other couples planning a wedding?
Hannah: Workout what time everything will take you in the morning when getting ready. Otherwise the time can run away with you and discovering too late that you are running very late can be very stressful.
Tim: Let your bride to be do it all ;P
Which is your favourite photograph from the day and what does it mean to you?
Hannah: Another hard one, there are so many lovely photos. I think it is the back and white one of the two of us standing at the altar facing away with our arms round each other.
Tim: The one of us sitting on the steps laughing.
What did you like best about having Ruth and Dave Photograph your Wedding?
Hannah: They were so relaxed and blended in so well with all the wedding guests. Ruth was particularly helpful in the morning. She was definitely a calming influence over me when I was getting more and more nervous and stressed about being late.
Tim: They were incredibly professional and like Hannah said it felt as if they were one of the invited guests.
