Caroline & Matt's Wedding Gift Fund
Hi! We're Caroline and Matt. We're both Teaching Assistants from South Bucks who are getting married in April 2019!
We've had a few friends and family ask what they can get us for wedding gifts but we already live together in our own flat. Having discussed with friends and family, we've decided to set up this GoFundMe so those who want to get us a present can make a contribution towards our wedding and future honeymoon.
As we are both Teaching Assistants, we are both on 'lower than the national average' salary. This means we are on a tight budget so any contribution you wish to make is really appreciated and means we can consider upgrading elements of our big day from our very tight budget level. To help pay for the wedding, we both 'helped' Santa and Mrs Claus at our local gardening centre - which meant we worked every day from Mid November to Xmas eve!
In our spare time, Caroline is a member and Matt is the Chairman of the Iver Heath Drama Club (a non-profit community group which welcomes members of all abilities and actively involves those with physical and mental health). We also like to make YouTube videos on a range of things from unboxings, dashcams, drama club clips and even live music. Matt and Caroline are also keen members of Mind, the mental health charity. Matt is a media volunteer for Mind having open spokenly with Sky News, BBC Newsbeat and LBC as well as working on a Shortlisting Panel for the Mind Media Awards.
Caroline and Matt live in their cramped flat in Wexham with two cats, Punch and Rey, and two gerbils.
Our dreams for the future is to have a beautiful wedding, keep working at our amazing school and find the funds to settle down in family home to have kids.

It has been a really busy few months and I am sorry we haven't been uploading updates as much as we could have.
Firstly, thank you to everyone who has contributed to our GoFundMe page. It is really appreciated and helps make each thing a bit more affordable. I am currently putting the final touches to the Order of Service and we've recently been to St Margaret's Church in Iver Heath and St Mary's Church in Wexham to hear our Banns being read.
Now panto is over for another year we can put 100% of our effort into the wedding. Less than 9 weeks to go!
The Church, Hotel, Photographer and Videographer are all booked. Not quite panicking but still lots to do!
We plan to post updates every few weeks. To start we can confirm the Church has been booked and deposit paid and the Hotel for our Wedding Breakfast and our Wedding Reception.
Caroline has an idea of a wedding dress she likes so is starting to organise a trip to the shop - keep an eye on her Twitter for other sneak peaks. Matt isn't sure on his suit yet, Navy Blue Tweed is the preference.
We're in the process of booking our Photographer and Videographer - a huge thank you to Matt's parents for offering to contribute/pay for these expensive but vital elements of our big day.
Thank you for visiting our page. Our save the dates will be going out shortly.
