We wanted the day to feel very personal and to represent us and our families. So on the guest book table we put up photographs of our families on their wedding days in vintage looking silver frames. We also put up pictures of us as children on my Nan’s mirror in the evening (which we’d used to stick on the table plan earlier in the day). We also put little quotes about love and marriage on the backs of everyone’s name cards on the tables. And I also made a sign for the sweet/cake table that said ‘Let them eat cake’.

I really enjoyed planning everything really, though it was stressful. We loved doing the table plans and choosing the music. Plus planning the service and what music and readings we wanted.

My advice to other planning brides would be take your time, enjoy it. It all goes past so quickly. Don’t sweat the small stuff – it really doesn’t matter if things go wrong. My bouquet only arrived as I walked into the church – but it wouldn’t have mattered if it hadn’t because what was important was marrying each other. Don’t forget what the whole point of the day is. Honestly, nobody notices when things go wrong. And keep your sense of humour”.

Such great advice about not sweating the small stuff, it is so true that things may go wrong on the day, as long as you have a level head, as well as some great people around you to sort things out then it should all work out fine. I do love how relaxed David and Gemma look, and wow how incredible is Gemma’s Claire Pettibone gown, that back view is just stunning.

Thanks so much to David and Gemma for sharing their day with us and to Lisa Dawn Photography for capturing the day superbly.
