Lying about your career might lead to an awkward confession down the road – but it also might snag you the love of your life!
Johnny Delaney and Jen met at a bar while travelling in Australia. “Johnny tried to chat me up by telling me he was a photographer – he wasn’t. He was a carpenter,” laughs Jen. “Why he thought I would be more impressed by that – I don’t know.”
But whatever the motive, it worked a treat, with the pair becoming a couple and travelling around Australia together.
Their weekday wedding on October 2, 2014 was held on a Thursday at The Shireburn Arms, Hurst Green. “We would not have been able to afford our venue had we got married on a Saturday,” explains Jen. “The money we saved on the venue allowed us to afford other things that were important to us, such as a live band and a good photographer.”
Before the celebrations the couple wed at St Peter’s Church, Salesbury, where Jen’s parents were married 30 years prior.
Jen had a specific vision for her wedding styling – nothing to be matching! “I knew that I didn’t want everything to be very uniform and matching, because that’s just not my style,” she says. The couple let the flowers from The Flower Shop be the main focus.

” I wanted the flowers to be the main focus of colour – beautiful, bright and multi-coloured,” explains Jen.
“Take some time on the day for just the two of you,” is Jen’s advice for other brides- and grooms-to-be.
Jen and Johnny’s day was a family friendly affair.
“Toni made us feel totally relaxed and made the whole experience so much fun,” Jen says praising their photographer.
