Tania and Rhys – A Sweet Proposal

If you have eaten a bag of Haribo in your life then at some point you have probably put a Haribo ring on one of your fingers.

This is really the starting point for this blog because one Christmas Day morning Rhys proposed to Tania with a Haribo ring. Tania thought she was getting a rose gold hair dryer and then as she unwrapped her gift it turned out to be an Addidas trainer box! But the box was light… hmmm? Inside the box sat a Haribo ring with a Haribo heart either side.

Tania and Rhys only saw one venue… Clearwell Castle. It was their venue.

In the lead up to the wedding; save the dates were sent, a dinner date evening was attended at the Castle where they ate the food which would form their wedding breakfast on the wedding day, dresses were tried on by Tania and in the end it was a dress which unexpectedly became her dress and a personal touch was being made as Tania’s parents made her post box.

The Date which was saved – Friday 9th February 2018.

As candles flickered in the reception rooms guests arrived ready for a 1.30pm ceremony.

Tania walked down the aisle in her white boots.

Rose sashes adding subtle colour to the Ballroom.

Rhys in a blue suit stood waiting for his bride.



‘Mr & Mrs’

After the ceremony prosecco was drunk and canapes including Mini Yorkshire Puddings were eaten.

Tania and Rhys had a harpist who played for parts of the day.

Guests took their seats ready for the speeches to begin.

Speeches were followed by the wedding breakfast.

On the wedding day Tania was wearing a Rolex watch – her wedding present from Rhys.

Fireworks were lighting up the night sky as Clearwell Castle, Tania, Rhys and their guests watched as the colours burst.

A mini-moon in North Wales followed and May will see the couple go to Mexico.

The engagement started with a Haribo Ring and now we end with the wedding rings.

Congratulations Tania and Rhys
