Our venue seemed perfect for us as soon as we walked around it. It was all that we'd talked about wanting and we could already begin to imagine our special day there.


Happily ever after: Image 2Our place names matched the table plan and we used small wooden pegs to attach each one to the wine glasses.

Happily ever after: Image 2b Our table plan matched our colour scheme and our invitations – it was made to mirror the front of our invites.

We decided on table numbers instead of names.


Happily ever after: Image 4Our cake was a three-tiered white and mint green style. It was decorated with mint green ribbon around the bottom of each tier, green flowers and a personalised cake topper.

Happily ever after: Image 4b We chose a mint green top table swag along with a floral centrepiece.

We loved our large light-up initials!


Happily ever after: Image 6Our little guests loved our sweetie cart!

Happily ever after: Image 6b My dress was a fishtail shape called Cerise by Maggie Sottero. It was decorated with Swarovski crystals and I teamed it with a full-length veil with matching crystals.

I wore personalised wedding converse trainers with my name and wedding date on. I used satin ribbon for laces and the toes were decorated with crystals. They were so comfortable!


Happily ever after: Image 8I had a hand-tied bouquet with white roses and peonies.

Happily ever after: Image 8b Benjamin wore a Jeff Banks grey morning suit with a mint green cravat.

The best man matched Benjamin while the other groomsmen wore the same suits with ivory cravats.


Happily ever after: Image 10Our bridesmaids looked stunning in their strapless mint green dresses with lace bodices.

Happily ever after: Image 10b My dad had a flag made with our family coat of arms and our wedding day on it – it was a lovely touch and looked great hoisted above the manor.

I love this photo of our flowergirls with their petal hems, heart wands and matching converse.
