“So how did you meet…”

It’s one of the first questions we ask our couples. It really gives us an idea of how and when the relationship flourished and an insight into their personalities, their aspirations, their hopes and their dreams and finally how they arrived at this fantastic time of their engagement.

This one small question can lead to some of the most interesting, amusing and romantic stories that we have heard, and what’s more, no two are the same. We love these moments so much!

Take our beautiful couple who tied the knot recently at ‘The Grove Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa’ in Hertfordshire, Prince Tosin and Princess Kyoko. And no, those aren’t made up names!

Tosin is a real-life Prince of a gorgeous town in Nigeria and Kyoko, his sophisticated, Japanese bride, is a scientist-microbiologist who were introduced via a mutual friend.

In the early days, many described them as an unlikely pairing, however, despite having such contrasting roots, from their very first interactions, they were captivated with each other. It truly was a fairy-tale romance which developed rapidly and before they knew it, they were head over heels in love…

Another one of our love stories which spun over several continents, tells the romance of Vita and Kunal who lived on either side of the Atlantic Ocean, one living in the United Kingdom and the other in the United States of America.

Through her travels around Asia, Vita became acquainted with a woman from Chicago. Fast forward a few months, she was asked to be a bridesmaid for a friend’s wedding in California. This gave her the perfect opportunity to extend and make the most of her trip whilst catching up with some friends along the way.

Vita decided to explore Chicago on her spontaneous expedition and subsequently reached out to the lovely lady she met in Asia; however, her friend was quick to respond that she was out of town and suggested that Vita meet her son instead…

Many transatlantic journeys and holidays pursued, and fast forward a few years later, we had the pleasure of planning their lovely wedding at the stunning Northbrook Park, Surrey.

Last but not least, the romantic story of the beautiful Rohina, a teacher and Haroon, a policeman. These two love birds knew one another for many years but it was none other than a fluffy, white rabbit that finally bought them together.

Haroon’s caring nature saw him nurturing abandoned animals in-between his daily patrols.

When one day Rohina decided to adopt a furry companion, she was told of Haroon’s side venture and contacted him to arrange a meet-and-greet of the many animals he looked after at the time.

It was through the kindness of their hearts that they both met that day… their beautiful union was celebrated at the stunning Hedsor House, Buckinghamshire and was an absolute delight to be a part of.

If our beautiful couples have taught us anything throughout the years, it’s that time and unforeseen circumstances truly have a way of bringing two individuals together, regardless of their background, the distance between them or how unusual and unlikely the situation may be.

We adore how love has a way of defying all odds…

Here at Love Lydia Weddings & Events, we are always so excited to hear of new love stories and would be delighted if you would like to share yours with us too.

The course of true love is usually sealed with a beautiful wedding and we are here to help you complete the journey of a lifetime. Feel free to contact us via our website www.lovelydia.co.uk or by sending us an email to info@lovelydia.co.uk. We look forward to hearing from you.

We love hearing back from our beautiful couples. Scroll through a selection of ourLove Letters

Dear Love Lydia...

We were extremely fortunate to have engaged Lydia to plan our wedding last summer. She and her team were absolutely fantastic. It really made a huge difference having her assistance and support through all the planning. On the day of the wedding itself, she and her staff executed the day flawlessly. You really cannot go wrong with Lydia and to top it all, she’s an absolutely wonderful person.

Kyoko & Tosin

Lydia is amazing at what she does and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us through the challenges of a 2020 wedding. She has helped and supported us through the whole postponement of it to next year and we have complete confidence in her - when Lydia says she is going to do something, we don't even have to worry anymore! She has great contacts in the industry which has made the whole process so much easier having a marquee wedding, where you tend to need more suppliers.

Fiona & Richard

We are so pleased with the wonderful way everything was organised and co-ordinated on the day. Words just aren’t enough to convey our thanks. You made our day just perfect

Melanie & Lewis

Jay and I would like to thank you for planning our daughter Sarah and son-in-law Paul’s wedding day. It really took the weight off of our shoulders, allowing us to truly enjoy the beautiful occasion. Your nothing-is-too-much attitude throughout the whole planning stage and on the day, made us feel totally at ease and we couldn’t believe how relaxed we all were on the day itself! This was especially so because your professional approach put us totally at ease from our very first meeting. Many thanks, you are well worth your weight in gold!

Susan & Jay

Thank you Lydia and your team for the most unforgettable day. It was everything we dreamt of and more. Even though we commissioned your services a little after the initial arrangements were made, we felt that your hands-on approach was very reassuring and made for a magical, stress-free day. Thank you again.

Debbie & Jo

We don’t know how we would have done it without you! Your professional, yet friendly approach, really put us at ease during the whole fourteen month process. Thank you so much for arranging our wedding over four days in Albania. Your patience was extremely appreciated and your resourcefulness was second to none. Our guests were completely blown away with the beautiful venue and styling and are still talking about it several months later. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will never arrange another event without Love Lydia.

Antuela & George

I hired Lydia as my wedding coordinator for my wedding in Sardinia. I had to take her with me as there was no one better in my opinion. I have to say that Lydia has such a variety of skills and gives 110% effort into everything she does. Lydia was available to me day and night and nothing I asked for was too much trouble. Lydia treated my wedding like it was her own and wanted to make sure everything was as perfect as it could be for me. My family and friends have said it was the best wedding they had ever been too!

Christie & Danny

As the groom with an amazingly organised wife I was originally against using a wedding planner but I’m not ashamed to admit I was wrong. Lydia was absolutely amazing. Not only did she help get our dream venue on the day that we wanted, she was brilliant all throughout the whole process. Constantly in contact and not mention on the actual day of the wedding how amazingly organised and professional she was. Liaising between all parties involved and keeping everything running smoothly.

Francesa & Roberto

Just to say a belated thank you for all your kind help throughout our wedding preparations. Your attention to detail and flexibility helped us to create the most perfect day of our lives. We had an incredible day making so many treasured memories. It was quite exhausting to be honest (!) but you took a lot of pressure off us which was super. Thank you again, best wishes.

Amelia & Oliver

Thank you so much for all of your support & hard work on the lead up to our wedding day & on the day itself!

We really appreciated all of the advice you were able to offer & for the recommendations.

Thanks again!

Charlotte & Alex

Thank you to Lydia and team for helping ensure a perfect wedding day for my wife and I. We, of course, highly recommend Lydia and her team as great assets for your wedding planning and on day coordination needs. They are professional, caring, and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again Love Lydia Weddings & Events.

Gessica & Chris

A HUGE Thank you for overseeing our wedding day, you made it all feel effortless, and I speak on behalf of MANY people when I say what an outstanding job you did. We had an incredible day - I never imagined it would be that good. I loved every minute! Much love

Siobhan & Mick

We had the most amazing day imaginable! Although initially wanting to plan the day ourselves, it soon became apparent that more meticulous and time-consuming planning was required. Thank goodness for Love Lydia! No attention to detail was spared, allowing us to enjoy our magical day to the fullest. Everyone was wonderful and made us feel very special.

Monica & John

Nothing was too much trouble, Lydia was always at hand to alleviate any worries and ensured that any last minute nerves were quickly set aside. Thank you so much. We would not hesitate to recommend you.

Amy & Tim

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all that you did to help arrange the most perfect wedding reception for us. We wanted to create the quintessential English Country Summer Wedding in Devon and you did! You were so great to deal with all the way through and delivered everything you promised, from the dressing of the luxury marquee down to the finer details. Thank you for making the experience so easy and enjoyable and taking the stress out of organising our special day!
