Our wedding day was magical and went by in a blur for me and Craig. We both remember sitting at the top table still feeling as though it wasn’t all about us.

The ceremony itself was wonderful and looked very picturesque in the Minster Quire, an older part of the church with old, wooden pews lit with bubble-shaped lamps. We both took stock and relaxed after the main part of the ceremony when signing the register. We travelled to the reception in a beautiful classic car, a 1940s Bentley Type R, with a glass of champagne each and a smile on our faces.

At the reception we were able to thank everyone for sharing our special day which was lovely. The speeches after the meal were very moving, including Craig’s during which he did his best to get a few tears from me, and succeeded. Shortly after though he managed to have everyone in fits of laughter, and shed a few tears himself after declaring ‘now lets get on to the bridesmaids’ - a slight slip of the tongue.

The evening do was fantastic, with many more friends and relatives arriving. We danced along to live music from the Casino Band, playing a mixture of older and current music, accompanied by some of our guests’ children playing along with the air drums.

My favourite part of the whole experience though was saying my vows to the man I love. It meant so much to me to be able to do that after being together for so long, so for me the church ceremony was the absolute highlight. I felt like a film star in my gorgeous satin wedding dress, and was so pleased I could share those moments with all of our family.
