We looked around lots of venues and toyed with the idea of having a marquee in mum and dad’s garden but when we visited Kingscote Barn we were blown away by the stunning, tranquil setting.

My auntie made us a magnificent cake. She handmade beautiful edible roses to fit in with our colour scheme. Chris is very creative and made lots of our decorations including bunting, wooden signs and presents for the bridal party – fabulous screen-printed bags and T-shirts.

My dress was an amazing Sassi Holford fishtail gown with full-length lace overlay and buttoned down the back. My bridesmaids wore a sage green colour. It was quite an emotional moment when dad saw me for the first time: we both had tears in our eyes.

A vintage bus took our guests from the church to Kingscote Barn and we arrived in style in a beautiful green 1940s Jaguar. I was keen to get into the beautiful cornfield for photographs and our wonderful photographers Callisto got some truly romantic photos of us spending some time together as the wind caught my veil and the sun danced on the golden corn.

We partied the night away with The Moon Loungers. They were fabulous and we will never forget their rendition of Hey Jude by The Beatles, mixed with the Elbow song, One Day Like This. Our friends and family surrounded us as Chris and I danced in the middle. Our first dance, chosen by Chris, was to Better Together, by Jack Johnson.
