King Rhubarb & Queen Lolo -
21st September 2019
Welcome to our wedding website!
We are really looking forward to sharing our special day with you.
Below you’ll find all of the information you need about our wedding, from RSVP and directions to places to stay for those who are travelling a long way to be with us.
We can't wait to celebrate with you all! Lots of love x
They met spontaneously. She was taken with his aura and stripey top. He was taken with her
unkempt eyebrows and dancefloor aeroplanes. The winds of change blew into their lives when he
asked “so, do you want to go sailing sometime?”.
Their love story started in Cornwall with a walk along the Polzeath coast path and continued with
sunsets adored on the clifftop. Whilst she sat on his knee and they absorbed the view, there was a
moment when they fell in love. That memory will be treasured forever.
Things went well. They put up a tent together without any tears. She moved in and Stripe the cat
approved despite the frequency of hugs now forced upon her. Though it wasn’t all fun and games.
Compromises came as they must: when she wanted ‘normal’ tea and he fancied Earl Grey, they
shared a ‘half-and-half’ flask.
He taught her to have the courage to wear questionable outfits if that was what she wanted (including
double stripes). She taught him that he would have to get up pretty early to catch her out. He learnt
never to name baby bunnies in passing after Raymond moved into the lounge in a large cardboard
box. She learnt to believe in unicorns.
Whilst lounging around in his cottage one hot afternoon, they accidentally agreed to buy a new home
with each other when she said “why don’t we buy it together”. There were no reasons not to… so they
did! They moved in and he quickly began his new project of building bunny homes. Then Penelope
joined the family and married Raymond after a whirlwind courtship of two weeks.
They shared their hobbies and found new ones together (particularly ‘treasure’ hunting at the dump!).
In each other’s arms they discovered an array of new talents including (amongst others) impressing
onlookers with their Swedish dancing antics and enveloping those around them with their
questionable sense of humour.
After the best part of three years living together, she moved to London for a new job. He remained in
Exeter to maintain watch. They lived as inbetweeners – catching treasured weekend moments
together when they could.
On 20 th January 2018, at the start of yet another Cornish holiday together, she sat on the sofa with
unbrushed hair, wearing his jumper and admiring the view that was such a reminder of the early days.
He made her a coffee that she sipped with delight. It was then, when she turned her head, he was
down on one knee declaring that he wanted to be wherever she was. She wanted that too, and so she
said yes. She knew no one would ever love her like he could. He knew that he couldn’t laugh like that
with anyone else for the rest of forever.
Two days later they booked the church that they had fallen in love with back in the beginning and the
date was set.
Since then all she has wanted to talk about is weddings. In between conversations about pom-pom
quotas and colour palettes, they spent weekends exploring and searching for their marital home.
Whilst the search for the new home continues, the search for “the one” was over 4 years before under
the glow of the stars.
That’s our story.
Order Of The Day

1pm. Prompt! Ceremony begins.
It will take you about 15 minutes to walk to the church from the car park at Daymer Bay. The route to the church is along a coastal path and across a golf course so it is uneven in places. Please consider bringing suitable footwear for this walk and whether you will need mobility assistance accessing the church.

7pm Evening Guests
7.45pm Cake Cutting
8.00pm…First Dance then disco dancing until midnight! It is going to be an epicly fantastical party.
Feel free to leave a message we promise to read them all!
As we have been living together for a few years but have not yet found our ‘forever or for now’ new
home, we really don’t need anything new or know of anything we need (other than a kitten). But if you
were thinking of getting us a wedding gift, we would be ever so grateful for a contribution towards our
honeymoon so that we can take some time to enjoy our new life together as husband and wife. There
will be a variety of activities that we would love to do (some ideas include chartering a boat (her
idea!), pony trekking (his idea!), devouring delicious dinners and exploring new places) and it would
be fantastic if you helped us have the best adventure ever.

Where to Stay
The field is along the Greenaway beach section of the cliff – this is worth bearing in mind depending
on where you would like to stay and how you are intending to get home.
If you would like to turn our wedding into a week long holiday, you can find a
variety of houses on John Bray’s website www.johnbraycornishholidays.co.uk. These
properties rent for a week at a time and can be booked from 1 December 2018.
The St Moritz Hotel (www.stmoritzhotel.co.uk
has rooms, apartments and villas available. The
St Moritz backs onto the field and is therefore extremely close proximity
The Oystercatcher is a pub in nearby Polzeath, which has some rooms available and is more affordable than the St Moritz. Though, it will take you longer to walk home.
The Point, St Enodoc Hotel and Wadebridge Premier Inn are a short drive away. If you will require a taxi, we recommend booking this in advance with Mark’s taxis on 07976 968011.
