A brilliant day

Vibrant shades of orange and pink made Tom and Fliss’s wedding in sunny Sherborne bright and beautiful

Tom Treweek and Fliss Cranny

Where: Ceremony at St John’s Church, Weymouth followed by reception at Stockbridge Farm Barn, near Sherborne

Photography: Linus Moran

Tom and I were engaged for two years before we started planning our big day. We originally agreed to get married in 2014 but, after several family members were taken ill we decided to bring it forward a year.

We looked at a lot of different venues but we were looking for something that bit different that you could put your own stamp on – and that we did.

Our colour theme, orange and pink, was very different and we wanted to use flowers at the reception to really make it personal. Becky Bailey at P&M Read Florist really made the pink and orange theme come alive with the flowers. The six bridesmaids had lovely bunches of pink and orange f lowers with diamante studs in the centre.

I was excited and nervous walking down the aisle as I get embarrassed at everyone looking at me and hate been the centre of attention. When Tom turned round and I saw him crying at the altar waiting for me, it made me giggle, which also broke the ice.

Our photographer, Linus Moran, was the best photographer we could have asked for. He captured every bit of our special day without people even noticing he was around; that makes our pictures even more special to us as they are natural moments captured forever.

Our entertainment included a duo called Chloe and Tom who performed throughout the day, and in the evening we had a wizard bar and disco. We also had a sweet cart that was a massive hit with adults and children and a photo and video booth.
