Walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon and then back up the aisle to U2’s Beautiful Day played on strings. Our friends from uni sang a My Fair Lady Medley (a tradition amongst us all) as well as our maid of honour and groomsman reading an extract from Dr Seuss and a poem called ‘I’ll be there for you’.
A friend from school – Dani McKenzie made our cake which tasted amazing.
Emma’s dad cut and carved all of the wooden log centrepieces, name card holders and a welcome photo sign.
Emma’s mum, aunties and grandma put together the flowers for the tables and aisle using wildflowers and gypsophilia.
As we’re both musicians, Shaun’s mum and gran helped to put together the confetti cones made from sheet music. All of the families dried out rose petals throughout the year for confetti – it smelt amazing!
We also had a family drinks tasting in advance to decide on which wines and ciders to have.
The whole day had links to Herefordshire, Liverpool and Somerset due to our family homes and where we currently live.
