It’s a fairytale story if ever there was one and serendipity was in full play when this pair first laid eyes on each other. Matt is an Airline Pilot and Gemma works in Airline Customer Service.  In the space of 48 hours, they passed each other twice in the airport terminal. Sadly, these chance meetings were never to happen again and Matt set to work trying to track Gemma down on Facebook. The search was in no way ‘plane’ sailing as Matt was unable to find Gemma’s photo.  Finally, he found Gemma’s mums Facebook profile and straight away saw the resemblance in her smile! Voilà, the ‘connection’ was made.

And so began their adventure around the world, with Matt popping the question on a surprise trip to Cornwall in 2013.  At first, the couple had thought they would love to have their wedding in either Rock or Padstow. But logistics and Airline shifts proved difficult to negotiate. After moving their focus to as far away as Franschhoek in South Africa, Gemma finally found the gorgeous Wasing Park. The venue had everything they were looking for with a Church and accommodation for all their guests to ‘check-in’ on site. This enabled the couple to host a long weekend of celebrations.

Gemma’s beautiful wedding dress was made by the talented designer, Augusta Jones. Originally, the dress was strapless but Gemma asked Augusta to slightly adapt the design allowing her to work with the seamstress at White Mischief Bridal to have off the shoulder cap sleeves. A layer of sequins was also added, so in the evening they would catch the light. Not only was the bride sparkling but the dress was sparkling too.

Matt and Gemma’s wedding day went off without a hitch. Tears and laughter were shared during the speeches and their friends and family enjoyed games in the beautiful garden.  The afternoon ‘flew’ by and in the blink of an eye the evening’s festivities had begun. Nothing could have prepared Gemma for Matt’s brilliant surprise Flash Mob and the couple the partied into the early hours!
