Our Season of Love series continues as we cover the wedding of one of our beloved bridal couples, Jenna and Jack.
The Henley on Thames based pair recently celebrated their nuptials at The Great House Hotel Sonning in Reading, which provided a spectacular backdrop to their enchanting wedding shoot.
Jenna, Global Employer Branding Manager, Dr Martens PLC, originally from Yorkshire, met Account Director, Udacity Jack in London and they have been together for 5 years.
Whilst we first met with Jenna and Jack in February of this year after they contacted us to co-design and create their bespoke wedding rings.
How Did You Two Meet?
Jenna: We met at a spinning class, Psyche in London. It’s a great story that Jack loves to tell, especially as he managed to place himself directly on the bike behind me for the entire class! From there as they say the rest is history…a great story to tell the grandkids.
Engagement details, How Did It Happen?
Jack: I proposed to Jenna in California, on a beautiful rock overlooking the ocean in California on 17 Mile Drive. She had no idea it was coming and transporting a ring from London to California without her seeing it came with its challenges but when she said ‘yes’ it made it all worth it.
Wedding Planning, How Long Did It Take? We see your worked with Mrs. T to deliver your day?
Jenna: Well, I made sure I really enjoyed the engagement bubble for as long as possible. We started to plan the wedding a year after we got engaged. It took us a few months to decide on a venue but when we did it was pretty much a year of planning from there. Mrs. T, what an angel she is. She really was our guiding light in the wedding planning year. A great support and we wouldn’t have had the amazing day we did without her and the Mrs. T Team.
Wedding Bands, tell us why you decided to go bespoke? How did you find the process with Alicia J Diamonds?
Jack: I loved how easy the process was with Alison. Meeting her and discussing ring designs and being able to try different styles on made it super easy to select a wedding band.
Jenna: For me, I knew I wanted something a little different and when I met Alison and got to understand her business, and why she does what she does, I knew she would create a wedding band which was truly special. I wanted something I created in my mind from a fond memory I have with Jack, capturing a ‘starry night’ and the ring she created was perfect and I love wearing it every day. Alison really takes the time to listen to what you’re looking for. You get to try on different styles and then from their work with her and the design team on the creation of it. I couldn’t love my ring more!
