We looked at numerous barns before we stumbled across The Wild Boar on Pinterest. We decided to see it that evening, and as soon as walked in, we both knew it was the per fect place for us.

Unfortunately, Jonathan's father passed away a few years before the wedding, so we decided to honour his memory by including some of his photography in our centrepieces.

The winds of love: Image 4b For our flowers, we opted for David Austin roses, astilbe, café au lait dahlias, dog daisies, delphiniums, fountain grass and ferns.

We decorated the venue with bunting, pine cones, a step ladder, baskets and a photo booth with fun props.

I accessorised my look with a bracelet that Jonathan gave me and silver stone earrings.

Jonathan and his best man wore blue suits with grey tweed waistcoats and pink bow ties, which looked great.

The bridesmaids' dresses were a lovely pink rose colour with lace tops and chiffon bottoms that suited them all perfectly.

For our honeymoon, we spent two nights in Dubai and 11 nights in Mauritius. It was the best holiday we've ever been on and the perfect start to married life.

We had the most amazing day, and we wouldn't change a thing.
