“Our kids are our life. Now we are married it feels like the final jigsaw piece – we are now all Johnsons.” – Paul
It’s really special for us when a couple with kids gets married. Weddings are often primarily about about two people: the bride and groom. But when the couple’s kids are in the mix, watching their family history unfold, there’s an extra special touch love, happiness and super happy smiley little faces :)
“The run up to the wedding the children were so excited and loved having their input in things as well we loved their ideas. Shay, our son, walked Jodie down the aisle as Jodie’s dad couldn’t make it to Mexico. He did us so proud, there wasn’t a dry eye around. Shauna looked absolutely beautiful as flower girl and loved being dressed up like a princess. Both kids said amazing speeches at our home party and made us burst with pride. “
“It was very important that our kids were involved. We had been engaged for 8 years and had dreamt about our big day and planned every detail. To us the most important thing was our children being part of it all.” – Paul
There is something extra lovely about hearing a groom speak about his bride in her role as a mother. We loved Paul’s reception speech, that he shared with his children.
“Jodie, you are the backbone of our beautiful family, you keep us together and guide and support us all through good times and bad times. You are a massive cog in our family wheel which keeps our lives turning. Watching you with our kids and the way you are with them makes life much more pleasurable, everything you do each day sometimes goes unnoticed and we sometimes take what you do for granted, but its times like this when you realise what have and don’t want to lose.” – Paul’s speech
Jodie and Paul chose the Ocean Coral & Turquesa Gazebo for their wedding ceremony.
“We have always dreamt of being married somewhere warm and exotic, Mexico was the perfect choice.”
“We met in Magaluff 11 years ago on a nice sunny beach resort, that was why we wanted to get married aboard. Getting to have a holiday with all our family was a bonus too.”
“We chose the Ocean Coral & Turquesa gazebo as we liked the tropical look of the hotel and the location. Everything about the resort was outstanding, all the staff were great, especially Juan the towel guy he was a top top lad! Vanessa and Valeria were amazing! They worked so hard and helped us get the best photos for us to cherish forever.”
Thanks so much to Jodie and Paul for sharing their thoughts and words with us!
