Fortunately we were able to set up for our big day the day before, which meant we were able to relax and enjoy every minute of our special day.

Ryan prepared with the groomsmen, while I was pampered with my bridesmaids at my parents’ house, in keeping with tradition.

To say the day was perfect would be an understatement. The sun shone and we had all our loved ones there to celebrate with us. It was romantic but a great party at the same time. We were both on cloud nine all day.

Ryan had organised a harpist as a surprise for me as that was something I had always wanted as part of my wedding. I walked down the aisle to Pachelbel Cannon D. It felt incredible to walk down the aisle and meet one another to such beautiful music. The day can be so overwhelming, occasionally it feels as though you have created a dream. I felt like a princess, knowing that everyone there was there to celebrate our love. Seeing Ryan’s face as I entered the ceremony room and knowing that this was the beginning of the rest of our lives together was the best bit for me.

The speeches were also fantastic. They all created so much emotion and were a great talking point between the guests. Ryan said that afterwards he could relax and enjoy his food again as well as celebrate with everyone.

The day after the wedding we drove our hired van back from the venue and Ryan says that was when he got a real overwhelming moment of happiness and knew that getting married was the greatest feeling he’d ever experienced!
