Aimee & Melissa

A breathtaking Victorian Barn set in the heart of Norfolk is the perfect backdrop for this happy couple's big day. We caught up with Aimee & Melissa to find out about their wonderful wedding day, gift delivery and more!

How did you both meet?
We met on a dating website 8 years ago, but weirdly enough we went to the same college and had never met!

What's your favourite thing to do together?
Put the slow cooker on, get into pyjamas and play video games! We're homebodies at heart.

What was the best thing about the wedding?
How relaxed everyone was, it was important to us that our guests were really enjoying themselves. Everyone was smiling, laughing and clearly having a good time.

What tip would you give other couples planning their wedding?
Make a spreadsheet! Google Sheets has a template for weddings that we found really helpful. We did lots of research on venues before settling on Hunters Hall.

Tell us all about your honeymoon! Where did you go and what did you love about it?
We haven't had a big honeymoon yet, so we had a 'mini-moon' for a few days in Majorca. We spent the whole time by the pool and drinking cocktails. It was nice to have a moment and relax; after spending a couple of years planning a wedding, we were happy to have some time off!

What has surprised you most about being married?
It actually hasn't changed much; just feels really right.

Were you always planning to have a gift list?
No we weren't; what we had planned on doing was asking for money to fund our honeymoon. Friends of ours got married and recommended Prezola, so after having a look around the site we kept seeing all the lovely homeware and thought it would be really nice to have new items around the house bought by our friends and family to celebrate our special day.

What's your favourite gift list feature on Prezola?
Being able to see who exactly has bought what, and to read everyones gift messages.

What are your favourite brands on Prezola?
We loved Made.com, Heal's, and Joseph Joseph! We also found out about Nkuku through Prezola - we love their stuff.

What item were you most excited to get on your gift list?
Melissa was excited to receive the whisky set, and I was looking forward to the Joseph Joseph chopping board set!

Tell us all about your Prezola delivery day!
This day was such fun! Having three massive boxes taking up most of the living room was like having a little extra Christmas. The presents were beautifully wrapped too!

How would you describe your interior style?
Rustic meets modern, with a copper twist.

Is there a gift you wish you had added to your gift list but didn't?
No, not at all, we loved everything we received!
