On Track to Forever: A love story that began on a train

This love story began a decade prior with a chance meeting on a train ride home from university one evening. Not long after this encounter on the rails they began dating, well and truly on track to their forever together.

Elements that made this wedding ceremony such a success include:

  • They opted for a simple personalised ceremony which was the perfect combination of meaningful and lighthearted. Sharing their train love story was a huge hit with their guests.
  • Their undeniable connection, the way they looked at each other form the moment Ange arrived and walked down the aisle, and how they locked eyes throughout the ceremony.
  • The garden party vibe at their venue and how the venue has drinks circulating from the moment the ceremony concludes.

After sharing some pre-wedding announcements and warming up the guests, bride Ange made her way down the aisle and Imran couldn’t hold back his reaction.

As if the skydive wasn’t exhilarating enough, to Ange’s surprise, as they got close to landing, she spotted the banner on the ground with the words ‘Will you marry me?’

Needless to say, she said yes!

I couldn’t be happier to receive this amazing feedback from the happy couple:

5 STAR REVIEW “We cannot thank Jamie enough for helping make our wedding so special.

Our ceremony was just as we wanted – short & sweet but very memorable.

Jamie provided a warm, calm, and considerate presence on the day and helped ensure everything ran smoothly.

Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.

We would recommend Jamie and Cara to anyone.” Ange + Imran
