Heather Lloyd, 31, married Darren Rivers, 36, at St Nicholas Church, with a reception at Wasing Park Castle Barn, on 28th April, 2017.
I must have tried on 150 dresses – I just couldn't find a dress that 'stuck'. Finally I chose a strapless lace fishtail Madeline Gardner dress that had a huge overskirt that could be removed. I got to be a 'princess' for the ceremony, and wear a figure-hugging dress for the celebrations – the best of all worlds.
Darren wore a tuxedo from Ermenegildo Zegna, with a gray bow tie and cummerbund. He looked so sharp.
My dog Pig was an honorary flowergirl, and wore an adorable lace harness complemented with a flower wreath. She joined us for the confetti walk which she thoroughly enjoyed (and ate)!
I wanted the bouquets to fit with the bohemian fairytale theme; the soft, romantic bouquets included blue hydrangeas, dusky pink and ivory Dutch and English roses, pale pink and white ranunculus, anemones and foliage,and the flowers were reflected throughout the wedding.
The two tiny flowergirls carried a little white cuddly church mouse wearing a flower crown like theirs. I thought it might be comforting for them to hold when walking and they looked adorable.
The horse and carriage was the first thing I arranged after booking the venue. The horses, Steve and Dan, were magnificent.
For our centrepieces, we had rose gold stands with huge flower arrangements. We also had copper bowls containing flowers, with soft grey candles in rose gold candle sticks surrounding them.
We had a rose gold and marble theme, which we incorporated into our cake. The four layers were champagne and strawberry sponge, coffee buttercream, carrot with cream cheese, and buttercream and marble sponge with chocolate and vanilla swirls.
