From Dance floor to Dalmacija!
It was December 2015, the Edinburgh Xmas Party. Kim had been at her new job for less than a month when this seemingly ‘new’ face had approached her on the dancefloor busting his best worm impression. Did he know who she was? More so, did she know who he was?! He’d been totally unrecognisable since he shaved off his beard for charity and now here he was, in all his bearded glory challenging her to a dance off!!
Safe to say he won that one, the perfect start to any romance. Sean hasn’t been able to recreate his victory since, mainly due to the pure refusal of a rematch. He’s smart this lad.
The path of true love never does run smooth, with onlookers wondering whether this twirling pair would ever really work out away from the disco. The “will they / won’t they” debate endured for 16 months before they finally became official in April 2017 and they haven’t looked back since.
Their lives would never be the same again. To date, Kim has successfully managed to drag Sean out of St. Albans, teach him a trick or two in the kitchen and even sorted out that god forsaken wardrobe of his!
As for Kim, with Sean by her side she soon realised that there’s more to life than warehouse rave ups every weekend, exercised that competitive streak of hers (even more so!), and has even pointed her in the wondrous direction of the Oxford English Dictionary.
The last few years have been phenomenal for this pair. In between trips to far flung places and building a home together, they’ve loved meeting and sharing great times with the important people in each other’s lives. They are thrilled to have so many of you celebrate their big day with them (or as they like to call it, “the dance off rematch” that Kim has been so desperate for).
A few words about our wonderful Bridesmaids...
... and now for the groomsmen
BBQ +POOL PARTY
The wedding venue is about 3km west of the center of Split (6 min by car).
The Bride-and-Groom-to-be will be staying in Podstrana with their bridal party and groomsmen, which is around 12km east of Split (25 min drive) or 30 mins from the venue. The families will also be staying in surrounding villas.
The option of staying in the center of Split or Podstrana is completely up to you. If you are travelling in a big group, then renting a villa in Podstrana will probably be the best option. Homeaway.co.uk have some good options. Space is cramped in the center of Split, but ideal if just travelling as a couple and want to be in the heart of it all. There are plenty of airbnb options.
Podstrana is a small picturesque town with long beaches and bars. The Meridien is the main hotel in the area and close to Kim and Sean's villa.
TO THE VENUE
As explained, the wedding venue is very accessible from the center of Split and you will be expected to make your own way to the venue if you are staying in Split. If you are staying in Podstrana, a shuttle bus will be taking guests from the main villa to the wedding. Please let Sean and Kim know if you would like to claim a seat.
There are many airlines that fly to Split from many UK airports, please see a summary below:
Gatwick - Easyjet, Thomas Cook, Vueling & Smartwings
Heathrow - British Airways & Croatian Airlines
