I thought I would be a nervous wreck on our wedding day, but I felt fine! I was so frantic three days prior to the day that I was ready and just wanted to enjoy it. We both couldn’t believe the day had finally arrived for us to get married.

The ceremony was at St John’s Church as we love it. You can see it from our garden and we always knew we would have our reception at home in the garden.

I don’t like garish colours for weddings. I wanted ivories and oyster shades that are soft, feminine, elegant and timeless. There was a hint of the 1930s to our day, without it being a full-on theme. The boxed invites had lovely brooches on them, the bridesmaid dresses had a 1930s feel and we hired champagne saucers to fit in with the style of the day.

I wore a Monique Lhuillier gown. I have admired her designs for years and didn’t even consider another designer. The dress I chose wasn’t the one I thought I would from pictures I had seen. It just proves that the idea you have in your head can be very different when it comes to trying them on. I fell in love with my dress instantly!

We focused on one another during the ceremony. I didn’t take my eyes off Rob when we said our vows. It was like nobody else was there. It was the most intense moment of our lives.

We couldn’t wait to join our guests and celebrate after our photos had been taken. We hadn’t seen the marquee fully dressed and I gasped when we went in. Rob couldn’t believe the flowers and how beautiful it looked.

The food was amazing. I was absolutely blown away and loved watching the whole room, seeing everyone having fun and enjoying the day with us.

My sister gave me away and her speech was just lovely. Rob’s speech surpassed all my expectations. He nailed all the formalities but was humorous, kind and loving to both me, and his family. I could not have been more proud of him. I still can’t believe he is my husband.
