My top tip for planning a wedding would be if you have a good supplier then trust them. My florist, photographer, cakemaker, venue and caterers were all fantastic.

The florist produced the most wonderful flowers, working her magic to get the purple roses I wanted and the caterer, Sue from Chapman Holmes made sure that everything was in place and ran smoothly.

I woke up feeling calm and rested and before I knew it my bridesmaids were at the house and all five of us were having our hair and make-up done. Then the photographer turned up and was snapping away before the car took us to the venue.

From then everything was a whirlwind. We’d decided to get dressed at Capesthorne Hall and I will always remember my dad seeing me for the first time in my dress and us hugging and crying like a pair of school kids. It was a very emotional and special moment which the photographer captured.

In no time dad was walking me down the aisle and I was standing next to my husband-to-be, both of us with a tear in our eyes. The service was beautiful and we both enjoyed every second of it. We had our photos taken in the beautiful gardens of Capesthorne Hall. Peter had arranged for Tina our little dog to be brought to the venue for photos, which I loved.

We sat down for the wedding breakfast and Sue organised the order of the speeches. The food and drink was wonderful and everybody enjoyed the meal. The evening guests then started to arrive and the drinks started to flow. We danced the night away until our car came to take us home.

The day was wonderful and we enjoyed every single moment of it. Seeing all the people there to celebrate our wedding day still gives me this wonderful feeling. It’s true what they say, the day does whizz by, but making a bit of time for the both of us was a real must and helped us to keep our feet on the ground and time to get our breath back.
