We then decided to book a holiday to Malta the year before our wedding date and see the island before we committed to anything.

We got married in Lapsi Church; St. Julianâ€™s and had our sit down reception in Castello Zamitello on the 3rd June 2012 Sunday, followed by a BBQ the next day. We had 87 guests.
