Emma and Harry were married in Great Rissington’s beautiful church, a stone’s throw away from Emma’s family home in the Cotswold village.
The reception was held in the garden of the house, which was breath-taking: tunnels of wisteria, a huge variety of flowers and a bridge over a water feature were just a few of the delights to behold.
Emma wore a wedding dress made by Marco & Maria, worn with a circlet of fresh flowers.
The flower displays in the dining marquee & on the tables were lovingly arranged by Helen Priday, Caz Knight and Alex Fenton.
There were also some beautiful flower arrangements at the church created by Mel Houldsworth, Cookie Battiau, Susie Sutton and Rachel of Green and Gorgeous
After the touching ceremony conducted by Nicky Lee, with guitar played by Craig Ogden during the signing of the register, the bride and groom had fun running through a tunnel of confetti and then walked with guests to the house, where they all enjoyed a relaxed champagne reception in the garden.
There were some delightful and unusual Canapes created by Love Bites. The delicious vanilla sponge cake was made by Sally Price and decorated with tiny sugar lily of the valley.
After a few hours dinner was served in the marquee: hot salmon and asparagus tartlets with hollandaise; roast guinea fowl with thyme and mushrooms, spicy roasted potatoes and summer vegetables; trio of mini puddings served on vintage cake tiers; cheese platters accompanied by port at the special request of Harry; later mini croque monsieurs as midnight munchy; all created by Polly Parsons of Hassle Free Weekends
Summer cocktails were served after dinner with fresh mint teas and petits fours and Cotswold fudge.
The star of the show was of course the lovely Daisy, the family dog a gorgeous little Norfolk terrier.
After dinner the bride and groom took to the dance floor surrounded by everyone holding sparklers, the band –Jazzbomb was sensational, led by Charlie as the lead singer. They really got the party started and the guests danced the night away.
