Jemma & Evan: A Love Story

Q: Tell me about your beginning!

A: We met on Facebook (lol). Evan was chasing me for a while (he says he didn’t, but he was always in the DMs!). I finally gave in, and he took me to Frankie and Benny’s for our first date. We haven’t looked back since!

Their love story is one of persistence and romance. What started as a digital connection turned into countless memories and a life built together in Bristol.

Q: When and where did you get engaged?

A: We got engaged in Salou, Spain on 7th June 2022, the exact place where we had our first holiday together.

From the first holiday to a surprise engagement, Spain holds a special place in their hearts. Evan’s proposal was a heartfelt nod to the beginning of their shared adventures.

Q: What style/theme did you have on your Wedding Day?

A: We just winged it, to be honest. Not that Evan had much say in the matter. I just wanted pink!

Jemma’s vision for their Bristol wedding was simple and sweet. The pink theme added a touch of romantic elegance, perfectly complementing the enchanting surroundings of their venue, The Mecure Bristol, The Grange Hotel.

Q: What were you most looking forward to on the day?

A: Definitely seeing Evan’s face at the end, but just becoming Mrs. Blanchard as a whole. Celebrating with all our family and friends together.

For Jemma, the highlight was not just the ceremony but the moment she would become Mrs. Blanchard. The joy of sharing this milestone with loved ones was the icing on the cake.
