Congratulations on your wedsite! We are honored to be a part of your special day. Thank you for choosing to share your wedding plans and experiences with your friends and family.

Our Wedding


We know it’s traditional to write a list

But in this case there is a slight twist

Our home is complete with the usual stuff

And the things that we have are good enough!

Our dream is to honeymoon in a foreign land

To walk along the beach or casino hand in hand.

We hope you don’t think of us as being rude

And that our request is not misconstrued

But a contribution to our honeymoon pot

Would be appreciated such a lot

But the most important thing to say

Is that you are there to celebrate our day!

Going by plane?

As it stand only Easy Jet Fly on Fridays from Luton.

In 2014 we flew on Friday from Birmingham, so we are hoping these flights become avaialble again.

No dates are available to book for the wedding as the dates are to far in advance.

We have been to the wedding venue in 2015 from Luton and it cost us the following;

£10 per person for parking at Luton

£80 per person return for the flight

£50 per person for car hire

£140 per person based on 4 sharing.

Best Airport to fly to is Bordeaux, then its about 1hr drive.

Getting a taxi in France?

Taxi's in France are extremley difficult to arrange and expensive.

Unlike most countrys where you can just flag one down, in France this does not happen.

To get a taxi from the Airport to the Venue will be £180 one way, therefore its better to hire a car if your flying.

Taxis for people staying at Masion Rouso to the wedding venue (Bellvue) will be about £20 each way and these will need to be booked 6 weeks in advance of your stay. We suggest you have a look at the timings of each day and as a group plan your arriving and leaving taxi time in advance.

Our Wedding


Where should we go on our Honeymoon?

How many children should we have?

Who is getting the "better deal" in this marriage?

Our Wedding

Wedding Party

Whos Who?

Mother and Father of the Bride

Kay Jenkins and John Jenkins are Becky's parents who we both owe alot, for their support over the last 10 years. Kay is the creative one of the Jenkins family and she has put alot of time and effort into what you will see at our wedding!

Mother and Step Father of the Groom

Rita Smith and Alan Smith are Adam's mother and step farther. Rita and Alan have given lots of support over the years, especially at the start of our relationship when we lived in their house.... and came in most nights from town at 4am!

Father of the Groom

Sam McDonnell is Adam's Farther who you will know sadly passed away a few years ago. Sam would have loved to see Adam and Becky "tie the not" and probably more loved to join in with the after paty!

Maid of Honor

Carly Brown is Becky's Maid of Honor and altough Carly is Beckys cousin, she has become more than a family member she is my best friend. Carly is a big part of both of our lives and is becoming part of the furniture at our house. We spend most of our time drinking tea and having a good gossip! Could not think of anyone better to be with me on my big day.


Leona Harness is Becky's bestie and longest standing friend. There is nothing she doest know and we have so many shared laughs and memories cant wait to share our special day knowing that like every other big step in my life, she will be there.


Teresa Beckett is my Bridesmaid and married to Adam's Usher Neil. There is not a moment that I spend with Teressa that I am not laughing. I am lucky to have a friend that is putting so much effort into our big day and is as excited as us, so thanks in advance for our beautiful flowers!


Donna Wilson is Becky's Bridesmaid and although we have not been freinds for long I am lucky enough to say she is one of my best. A girl could not ask for a better partner in crime!


Donna Watkins is Beckys Bridesmaid and soon to be Niece. Donna is Julie's daughter (Adams Sister) and i cant wait to officallly be her Auntie (wow that makes me feel old, thanks Donna!)

Flower Girl

Olivia Mistry is our Flower Girl and Adam's niece and soon to offically be Becky's. You won't miss Olivia at the wedding we have no doubt she will be centre of attention! :)

Best Man

Andy Kopczewski aka "BIG TOE" is Adam's Best Man. Adam and Andy have been best friends since primary school and although theiir outlook on life has changed they still enjoy a beer and their one sence of humour!


Shawn Clarke aka "THE ASS" is Adam's Usher and is responsible for DRESS CODE. Shawn and Adam have been friends since their sport centre days in Coventry. Many nights out and lads holidays that have seen many laughs and stories which I am sure you will all hear over the 3 days!


Paul Ebrey aka "THE EBS" is Adam's Usher and is responsible for REGAILING A TALE . Paul and Adam have been friends since their sport centre days in Coventry. Many nights out and lads holidays that have seen many laughs and stories which I am sure Paul in his own unique way will bore you all with!


Michael Raggett aka "THE RAG" is Adam's Usher and is responsible for DANCE MOVES and HAIR STYLING. Michael and Adam have been friends for many years and when together it's a receipe for mayhem. Michael, although Adams friend has been cutting his hair for just as long as they have known each other. Once again many nights out and lads holidays that have seen many laughs and stories which I am sure you will all hear over the 3 days!


Neil Beckett aka "BECKETT" is Adam's Usher and is responsible for BEER DRINKING. Neil is married to Teresa Becky's Bridesmaid. Neil and Adam have been friends since their sport centre days in Coventry. Many nights out and lads holidays that have seen many laughs and stories, however the majority of Adams time with Neil has been spent at casinos and bookies, which I am glad to say they have grown out of!


Lee Bradnick aka "BRADDERS" is Adam's Usher and is responsible for KEPPING ORDER. Lee and Adam have been friends for many years and as with Neil Beckett they have spent the majority of the years at casinos or Coventry dog track. Lee is a true Englishman and as he would say "I am English through and through", however I challange you all to find out what this Englishmans surname is? Ps.... its not Bradnick :)

Paige Boy

About Us

Our Story

Adam's Story;

We got together in February 2006 (yes a whole decade ago), we owe our meeting to the Village hotel and their famous Thursday nights out.

After a short period Becky decided to move in to my Mum and Alans, well it was cheaper than getting a taxi home. Only 6 months later we moved into our first appartment together... things were moving fast. I knew at this point she was the one, however with Becky expensive taste I knew a wedding was always going to be a ten year plan, so 9 years later I thought I would pop the question.

And here we are!

Becky's Story;

So in February 2006 (yes a whole decade ago) my life changed forever, thank you to the Village hotel and their famous Thursday nights out.

Adam somehow managed to aquire my number and using his best moves sent me a text message "nice wheels" he was refering to my not so nice red ka, if only id know from that text where we'd be today!

After many warnings of "keep away, he'll break your heart" and do you know why they call him The Fox?" I decided to ignore all of this advice and we moved in together and i'm so grateful to say he proved all of those people wrong.

So things started off quite quickly!!!!! unfortunatly things did not carry on that way and i had to wait 7 years 10 months and 4 days before he finally manned up and asked me to marry him, not really sure why it took so long to save 3 months wages.

So here we are finally on the count down to our big day and I hate to admit it but it was worth the wait.
