Abi and Jon Bird had been living less than a mile from each for 15 years when they were finally introduced by a mutual friend on a snowy day in December 2010 at a pub in Farnham. Nine years later, they tied the knot at the stunning Farnham Castle, surrounded by friends and family and their mutual friend Dan as a groomsman!We’re a little biased at Hitched HQ about this wedding as Abi is our brilliant Head of Marketing. However, we think you’ll agree it was a gorgeous day, filled with fun, personal touches like Lego place cards, crazy golf, hangover kits, a glitter booth and even Prince Charles’ harpist!
Luckily the day went much more smoothly than Jon’s dramatic proposal, where he pretended to break his ankle on a dog walk to lure Abi up to a hill on the Swanage coast where he had written ‘Will you marry me?’ in stones – a favourite activity of hers when she was a child. The dogs, Digby and Peggotty, made a special appearance at the wedding too – scroll down for more!
