This week i’m taking you across the pond to Wales. Meet Vicky + Matthew the cutest newlyweds America has ever seen.
Vicky + Matthew
I’m so happy to be able to share their story with you. I met Vicky years ago, I want to say 2010 ish or even earlier at good old YMCA Camp Mohawk for girls. We then continued to see each other every summer for a few more years. For those who have never hear of it, Mohawk is an all girls sleep away camp in Northwest Connecticut. It is here that each year dozens of counselors from all over the world spend their summer caring for hundreds of campers, for well over 8 weeks.

Working at a sleep away camp you create such a close bond with all these women from all over the world, you then may sometimes never seem them again or you live thousands of miles apart + struggle to keep in touch. That’s why when I saw Vicky tied the knot with (at the time) boyfriend Matthew, + she shared their proposal story, I was so happy to get speak with her again!

While both Vicky + Matthew live over in Whales, I’m bring you back to America + the happiest place on earth to here their Say Yes Saturday story.
“Matthew and I got together in September 2015 we booked a holiday to Disney World Florida for September 2016. I had never been to Florida before it had always been a dream so going with my bestie was just amazing!! On our 3rd day in Florida we went to Magic Kingdom, I bought some Minnie Ears and was soaking in every single little thing, the people, smells, characters, THE CASTLE! Amazing! As we got closer to the castle Matthew said to me ‘shall we have a picture in front of the castle before we start our day and before it gets too busy?’ I replied with ‘yeah okay but let’s hurry as we have a fast pass to space mountain and I want to get on there’. We reach the castle and Matthew says to me ‘look there’s a photographer stood all on his own’ (it was literally meant to be) he went and got the photographer brought him over this photographer is extremely over the top ‘let’s have you here let’s do this’ Matthew had a fanny pack on and turned to me and said ‘shall I keep this on or take it off?’ At this point between the photographer, missing space mountain and him asking about his fanny pack I was getting a little frustrated. Matthew said ‘I’ll take it off’ he took it off and put it on the floor and I heard ‘Victoria,’ I turned around ready for another silly question to find him on one knee with the most beautiful ring, the photographer taking photos and a crowd near by cheering. Nearly 3 years on and we’re now a happily married couple and returning to Disney World for our 1 year wedding anniversary, dreams really do come true when you’re amongst all that magic!! Xx”
Disney, the one you love + a shiny ring! Vicky you are living every little girls dream. I cant forget to give some serious props to Matthew, proposing right in front of the castle! You are a real prince charming. Congratulations Vicky + Matthew, wishing you all the best,+ a great trip back to the magical place you future began.
