Stephanie and Matthew have been together nearly 5 years, and like a lot of people nowadays found each other via social media. On a random Snapchat. This was even more strange as Matthew was in Mexico and Stephanie was at home. When Matthew got back from his holidays they continued to talk and spoke on Facebook frequently. They finally met up 3 days after he landed. And the rest, as they say, is history.
They got engaged 30th September 2016 before moving into their first home together. Matthew collected the keys and they met at the house. Matthew opened the house up for the first time, went into the kitchen and when he came out, he got down on one knee asking her to marry him with the ring inside a glass vase like in Beauty and the Beast.
They chose Bryngarw House to get married because the beauty of the house felt right as soon as they walked in. It was their style of venue and the grounds around the venue are beautiful along with the venue being exclusive to them.
Phillip says Bryngarw House really does have one of the best rooms to get ready in any wedding venue in South Wales. Stephanie used the room to her full advantage to get ready with her and her four bridesmaids. Makeup was provided by the excellent Lucy Watts, who he has worked with many times. And hair was crafted by the very talented Kristen Davies. Phillip likes to try and mix it up at venues when it comes to photos, this time he even climbed out onto the roof to get some different angles looking into the room, much to the amusement of the bridesmaids.
