It’s as close as I’d... Read More

Real Wedding: Monalisa and Cedrick’s green themed autumn wedding

Monalisa and Cedrick first met at a conference in the States. Their romance would not have blossomed if it had not been been for their mutual friend (and now bridesmaid!) mistakenly giving him the bride’s number. The bride had told the groom that he was welcome to get her number in the UK from their friend, but she hoped their friend would say no!
