Diving into love - a wedding in Gloucestershire

The wedding of Jeremy Mann and Laura Seward had a seaside theme awash with blues and pinks

Where: Ceremony and reception at Eastington Park, Stroud

Eastington Park ticked every single box for us. I knew that I wanted a bit of a ‘princess’ dress but being vertically challenged I wasn’t sure if it would make me look like a cupcake. But when I tried my dress on I fell completely in love with it.

I felt strangely relaxed on the morning, in fact I was running around after my bridesmaids filling up their champagne glasses. It was only when I put my dress on that I started to get nervous. I managed to regain my composure on the long walk down the aisle, to find Jeremy waiting for me looking so handsome, which then made me well up with tears.

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful as we were fortunate enough to get married in the gorgeous gazebo outside, which I must mention was my new husband’s idea. Our colours were royal blue and fuchsia pink to tie in with our beach/diving/sea themed wedding. We chose a diving theme for our wedding because both Jeremy and I had always wanted to learn to dive and thought it was an exciting hobby to learn and do together as a couple, so it’s a big part of our lives and we wanted to share that with our guests.

The weather was lovely so we managed to have drinks and canapés at the reception outside on the terrace while Pete the pianist played elegant and sophisticated background music. It was nice to mingle with the guests. Having our photos taken was so much fun; the photographers got some wonderful shots. The food was exceptional and the cake was out of this world. We were so pleased with it we didn’t want to cut it.

Bonehead Productions DJ’d the night away for us and everyone got up and had a good old boogie.
