  1. Whereabouts in the UK do you live now? 
    The midlands, actually closeby where Prewitt mentioned I think? *small world*
     

  2. Whereabouts in the UK (or elsewhere) are you from originally? 
    Been in one town all my life and probably will for the rest πŸ™‚

    Waiting… … … … and waiting… . …

    Nope not right now
     

  6. Where did you/where will you get married? 
    Hopefully locally, can’t imagine going that far out!
     

  7. What do you think is most different about UK weddings to other countries’ weddings?
    We have the history of weddings dating back to over a thousand years, we’ve got the traditions down to a fine art (and haven’t over dramatised everything like some countries)

  8. Whats my favourite UK city?
    Oxford, so beautiful, cultural and the setting with the colleges is magnificent. Plus again, very steeped in tradition

  9. Can you recommend any good UK holiday locations? 
    Croyde bay, or the Dorset coast, check out Durdle Door, Lyme Regis with the jurassic fossil beach, and there are some lovely coastal walks there.


     

  10. What are your favourite UK TV programmes?  
    Russell Howards Good News, House (ok, so it’s American, but Hugh Laurie is 100% british!) Q.I, Masterchef, Mock the Week, Never my the Buzzcocks, list goes on.. oh and Don’t Tell the Bride (both me and the SO love that!!)
