Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 1Bride-to-be Hope also known as the Founder of Vanilla Orchid Bakery and a nominee for Prestigious Star Awards 2016 met her fiance Sena Co-founder of Morts and More UK’s top men’s style consultancy & tailoring company just over a year ago at a business meeting. The wedding vendor had no intentions of finding love that day, but as luck would have it her advisers had landed her in the hands of her husband-to-be.

How We Met
from bride-to-be, Hope
I met Sena at the Luxury brand Show, May 2015 after a client had recommended the event. I got lost on my way and I almost turned back but I eventually found it. I went by quickly and I saw Sena and his business partners looking great in their suits. My head was thinking of business connections and definitely not about love connections. I promptly emailed the Morts and More team to arrange a meeting.Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 7A few weeks later the meeting day arrived and Sena’s business partner was held up at another meeting which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. As I sat across the table from Sena, business went out the window and I first thought “wow, he’s hot” and oh those beautiful eyes, with all that said the cherry on this very large and yummy cake was his love for God.Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 15After the meeting I tried to find out if he had a girlfriend and the only way I could know was if I invited him and his business partners for a cake tasting with their significant others. Annoyingly, they all said they would come alone so I was none the wiser regarding his status. A few days before the cake tasting I sent them all an email with a few details regarding the tasting and after a bit of interesting banter Sena sent me a Whatsapp message in response to my email. Very soon after that he asked me on a date and we’ve been inseparable ever since.

I started telling all my close friends about him and it turns out he was good friends with  one of my friends and yet our paths had never crossed in all these years. The relationship has been a testimony that nothing happens before it’s time and God always gives exceedingly, abundantly above all that we could ask or think of.Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 12Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 14The Proposal
I was at Sena’s house doing a bit of work and looking a “hot mess” at the time,  he came back from a meeting and excitedly told me he had a surprise for me and we were going out. He then took me to the living room where he had a beautiful bouquet of my favourite flowers. As I was swooning over the flowers I didn’t even notice he was down on one knee with a very lovely ring. I was so shocked it took me a little while to respond with a resounding “Yes!” But this was not before I asked him if he had asked for my mum’s permission which he had done.Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 11Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 9Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 6Wedding Preparation
We both love traveling and sunshine and we all know the sunshine is not guaranteed in London! We initially wanted to get married in Morocco but then thought Malta would be better as some of my family have been there before. We spoke to a few wedding planners and chose one who is amazing. So we arranged a very quick trip to Malta to meet the vendors, look at the venue and do the food tasting and our engagement shoot.

The wedding will take place summer 2017 with our closest friends and family flying over a few days before the day for some fun filled surprise activities before the big day.Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 10 Hope_Sena_Pre Wedding_Malta_BN Weddings_2016 4

      Yes it’s really good when ladies don’t play too hard to get. I know of ladies who have done that when they were really Interested and ended up losing the guy to another lady. Definitely don’t just give in but don’t play hard to get for long. That’s what I think anyway.
