Lisa & Craig

Wedding Invitation

2nd October 2021

Our Story

We first met in 2016, just two single twenty-somethings who happened to both swipe right on Tinder. After finding a mutual love of eating out, pets and travel, we got our first home together in Reading later that year.

Five years later, we’ve enjoyed many holidays, bought our first home, and welcomed two mischievous cats to our family. It was on a weekend trip to Dublin in 2019 when Craig popped the question – and Lisa said yes!

After two years of engagement, two attempts at getting married (thanks Covid!), we are hoping its third time lucky and we will finally be able to tie the knot this October with all our friends and family!

Wedding Gifts

If you’re thinking of giving us a gift,
to help us on our way,
a gift of cash towards our honeymoon,
would really make our day.
Then while we’re relaxing on the beach,
or by the pool so blue,
we’ll sit back and know that,
it is truly thanks to you!
