Damon and Chelsea met at the University of Hull back in 2009, during Freshers Week. “Damon was in his final year and I was just starting my first year. After chatting it turned out we were both from Doncaster and lived in neighbouring villages!”. The rest is history as they say!
Fast forward to September 2016 where Damon nervously proposed in Rome at, what he thought was a little known picturesque place, called the Trevi Fountain. It turned out that lots of people seemed to know about his ‘secret spot’ and it was much much busier than he’d anticipated! He therefore tried to get Chelsea into a quieter corner but a guard kept asking them to move to the main bit! So all of a sudden he quickly decided to just do it before he missed his opportunity. Then rest of the holiday he had the flu!!! (Chelsea thinks it was due to all the proposal stress, haha!)
Chelsea and Damon’s wedding day at Mythe Barn was similarly full of fun and laughter.
Chelsea spent the morning getting ready upstairs in the bridal prep room with her sister Nike and her Mum, while Damon was with his family out in the little stable rooms, helping his Best Man Will figure out how to tie his tie!
(Side Note: It was a super hot Sunday in August, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to find that Mythe Barn has Air Conditioning! So wonderful! Thank you!!!)
Everything was set up perfectly throughout the venue, ready for the celebrations across the day. Guests were soon arriving and enjoying catching up with each other before being asked to take their seats for the ceremony.
Chelsea walked into the ceremony hall to meet Damon with a great big smile on her face, and their service was delivered wonderfully. My particular highlight was the very professional reading written and read by Damon’s 13 year old little brother Jon!
Then everyone filed out in to the sunshine to create a confetti tunnel for the newlyweds whilst they enjoyed a quick couple of minutes to themselves. Then they walked out and through with lots of fun and laughter!
The rest of their day was spend relaxing with drinks and canapés, while I got on with the group photographs, detail photographs, and lots of candids of everyone enjoying themselves. The seriously delicious wedding breakfast began with a welcome speech by sister Nike, and then finished off with speeches by Dad Barry, Damon, and Best Man Will. Damon’s Dad Naff announced the winning table of the hilarious quiz!
The band set up for the evening while Chelsea and Damon took a walk with me for their couple portraits in the setting sun. Then Chelsea tossed her bouquet to her waiting gang of unmarried girls! It was a mad scramble to win the bouquet with the winner hailed as their Niece, 4 year old Mia!
Soon it was time to cut their beautiful cake and get the party properly started with a First Dance as Mr and Mrs Khan! Congratulations Chelsea and Damon on your wedding at Mythe Barn!! It was a fantastic day, and I know you had an awesome party into the night too! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness! Say Hi to Ronnie again for me!!
