‘Mingling with our guests after the ceremony and hearing they were enjoying themselves as much as we were made all the effort worth it.’
Baby steps My lovely three-year-old niece Rebecca was our flower girl and her five-year-old brother Boaz played the part of ring bearer. Rebecca followed her big brother everywhere on the day and her playful innocence, coupled with his cheeky smile, lit up our guests’ faces throughout the day. Seasonal feast Our guests enjoyed a delicious buffet of dishes such as grilled salmon fillet, roast lamb and fresh salads, while dessert included pavlova, chocolate mud cake and a decadent cheese board. We coupled dessert with a three-tiered City Cake Company creation featuring tiers of lemon syrup and chocolate. Special moments There are a few special moments I remember most clearly from the big day. Mingling with our guests after the ceremony and hearing they were enjoying themselves as much as us made all the effort worth it. The dancefloor, too, was special – we chose Frank Sinatra’s ‘Fly Me to The Moon’ for our first dance. I’ll never forget Ignatius lifting me into the air, with lightbeams from the fairylight backdrop sprinkled around me like fairydust.
