By the time I met up with Kim & Ben on their wedding day, we were already mates.
I met them when they began planning their wedding, but saw them at 2 festivals over the summer and always ended up talking more about bands than we did about the wedding.
I knew they weren’t planning a stereotypical wedding day but even I was impressed with how much of their personalities shone through in the details. They’re both big metal fans (Ben has a Slayer tattoo on his chest) and their venue and decor suited that perfectly. The tables were named after metal legends and Ben’s wedding ring was a huge skull. Brilliant!
The day ended with everyone moshing on the dancefloor as the band belted out “Killing In The Name”!
Since the wedding I’ve seen them at more gigs and consider them good friends now.
I can’t thank Kim & Ben enough for having me along to such an amazing day. And thanks to Ed Brown for ably assisting on the day.
You all rock!
