If you had to sum up your wedding in one sentence, what would it be?

A classy, personal, autumn/winter wedding, full of love and worth the ten year wait!


Were there any notable speeches/music/readings or particularly memorable moments?

Well a memorable moment was definitely when my Dad lost his speech right before he was meant to get up and do it… Definitely a stressful moment. He managed to get it back moments before, and smashed it so there was nothing to worry about in the end.

Another memorable moment was also my speech, which people maybe weren’t expecting from the bride, but made it that bit more personal to us. I also loved when we were all dancing at the end to the band playing Mr Brightside, then shouting ‘one more song’ because no one wanted the night to end.

How did Jacaranda help make your day special?

Jacaranda surpassed expectations, they were professional, friendly, attentive to every need – and the food was amazing. Our guests commented that the canapes particularly were the best they had ever had at a wedding.
