Rebecca & Martin tie the knot in Las Vegas!

Rebecca & Martin tie the knot in Las Vegas!
Rebecca Jones and Martin Rowley officially became Mr & Mrs Rowley on 13th November 2013 after tying the knot in Las Vegas. They opted for a destination wedding as they both wanted a small intimate wedding, inviting very close family only. They both quickly agreed that Las Vegas was going to be their chosen destination after holidaying there previously holding special memories for them. Las Vegas 3 How they met They met through mutual friends and had previously been to the same secondary school (although never coming into contact before). Rebecca knew Martin was the one as soon as they had been introduced as there was so much chemistry between them. Length of Engagement They had been together twelve years before Martin decided to pop the question. He proposed in February over a romantic candlelit meal at their home in Telford, and Rebecca instantly said ‘Yes’! They had previously chosen her ‘diamond cluster’ ring together but the proposal date was a surprise … they wed 8 months later. Why Las Vegas? They decided they wanted to get married abroad as the cost was a lot cheaper than getting married in the UK. They chose Las Vegas as it was a place they had visited before and it held special memories for them. It was also quite straight forward to get married there with no minimum residency order required, all they needed was a wedding licence. The wedding ceremony could also be broadcast live over the internet which meant that their family and friends back home could also watch them get married … the whole thing seemed to come together perfectly, it was like a dream come true. Wedding Invitations Rebecca set her heart on having 'Vegas themed wedding stationery' so was delighted to find that The Card Gallery did a whole range of destination wedding invitations.

She was amazed by how many beautiful dresses they had available and tried on several until she came across the ‘one’ (priced £150!).

Rebecca and Martin Rebecca’s advice to other brides If you decide you want to get married abroad don’t use a wedding company as you can quite easily book everything yourself once you have done your research on the internet. By doing this you can save money and it can also be less stressful as you are in complete control of your own wedding.
