Mark Shepherd and Christy Peverley's Beautiful wedding in Cheshire

Mark and Christy held a relaxed, vintage-themed wedding at the only venue they viewed for their big day

Where: Ceremony and reception at Sandhole Oak Barn, Congleton, Cheshire

We fell in love with Sandhole Oak Barn in Congleton. It was the first and only venue we looked at, as we wanted something different. The dress I had in mind was a lace vintage style, but when I tried them on I decided this wasn’t for me, so ended up with a slinky, fitted, silk dress which I loved.

I felt very relaxed and excited on the morning of the wedding. Walking down the aisle towards the man I want to spend the rest of my life with felt fantastic and overwhelming. The ceremony was beautiful and romantic, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Afterwards we went outside to the patio for Pimm’s and canapés. The photographs were being taken all the time without us even realising; they were mainly natural shots which captured every moment. The theme of the day was vintage, classy with neutral colours. The wedding breakfast room was decorated with pearls, vintage tablecloths and chairs, birdcages, candelabras, drapes with twinkle lights and flowers in neutral colours. The cake made by my sister,

Jennie Lawton was a birdcage with cupcakes placed underneath, decorated in neutral colours with butterflies and pearls.

The speeches made by my mum Karen, Mark and his brother Leigh who was the best man, took place before the wedding breakfast so everyone could enjoy their meal. The food for our wedding breakfast was amazing, we couldn’t fault a thing.

In the evening we had a DJ, who got most people up dancing and out first dance was to Band of Horses’ No One’s Gonna Love You.
