Purple is one of my favourite colours and while I was looking through wedding magazines I saw how vibrant the Cadburys purple looked on photographs, so decided to have a purple colour scheme for our big day.

We also had a car theme as Steve loves them! The tables were named after classic cars and we made a big deal about Steve’s car, an Audi S4, that he used as his wedding car. As well as photographs we also got the videographer to do a Top Gear style film of the car. Steve and his best man Mark, loved doing this on the morning of the wedding.

After a night of very little sleep, I woke up early to the sound of thunder and heavy rainfall. This was something we had been dreading. I thought I would be really nervous, but I felt very calm, which isn’t like me at all. It just felt like a dream!

It wasn’t until my dad saw me in my dress that it started to hit me that I was getting married!

Hearing the music for me to walk down the aisle was the strangest feeling I have ever had. I couldn’t stop crying but I felt so calm at the same time. Seeing Steve at the end of the aisle just made me smile and everything just felt right.

The ceremony was beautiful, and the meaning of the words meant so much to us. Because the ceremony wasn’t held in a church we could have whatever music and readings we wanted to, so they were very personal. We even had everyone in the ceremony singing ‘All You Need is Love’ by The Beatles which was a very memorable moment and was captured very well by our videographer.

in the evening, guests were greeted with a Photobooth and we also had a chocolate fountain. Our band were called ‘Undercover’. We had seen them at ‘The Wedding Show’ at Tatton and they were spectacular. They played such a variety of songs, and had everyone up dancing all night long. I have never seen so many people dance at a wedding before!
