I walked down the aisle to The Smiths 'Please Please Please Let Me
Get What I Want', and we walked back up to Bright Eyes, 'First Day of My
"Arriving at the reception and seeing all our friends and family
was the best part of our day – having our son, Henry there on the day
too, oh, and the dancing!"
"A friend made some stunning table plans out of vintage suitcases
as well as putting together a guestbook using old drawers and index
"We had Red Velvet Cupcakes from Dish & Spoon Food We didn’t fancy a traditional cake and already knew we loved everything they bake."
