OUR STORY

HOW WE MET

Tara and Gareth met in March 2013 at St Paul’s Cathedral whilst attending a mutual friend’s wedding. They danced for hours and on leaving Tara said “I had fun, my name is Tara Kopp find me on Facebook!” Gareth got in touch, they started dating, moved in together, bought a house, got a little kitten and here we are today!

OUR PROPOSAL

Gareth planned a trip around France for the Euro2016 championship to support Wales. As part of the trip he also planned 3 days on the south coast with no football games to attend. Having spent the entire day in Nice, walking around and trying to find the perfect spot, Gareth finally decided on the stunning seaside town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. After a nice glass of wine, some more walking (this time with ice-cream) and still not finding the perfect spot, Tara asked to go back to Nice to watch the football on the TV! Gareth refused and finally found the perfect spot on the waterfront looking out to sea. A lot of cheese ensued and Gareth finally popped the question, Tara’s eyes were firmly glued to the ring imagining it falling into the sea. Of course she said YYYYEEEEEEESSSSS!

WHY SLOVENIA?

We first visited Slovenia for Christmas 2015 visiting Lake Bled, Ljubljana and many other sites. Despite having to wrap up warm in lots of layers, it didn’t detract from the magical scenery and amazing friendly people. We fell instantly in love with the country and felt completely at home. Another visit to Lake Bled in the summer of 2016 confirmed their earlier thoughts that this is the perfect place to share our vows with our friends and family.
