Your Bristol & Somerset Wedding - August/September 2022 (Issue 90)

For Tom, seeing me in my dress for the first time was the highlight. We both loved our first dance too, as well as being able to include our daughter in it.

Due to Covid, this was the first time many had seen each other in a good while, so it was really special. Everyone was able to catch up and have a good time on the dancefloor with the DJ in the evening. We had a menu- and wine-tasting evening at Berwick Lodge, which was lots of fun. We opted for pork belly to start, beef featherblade for main and sticky toffee pudding for afters (Tom’s favourite). In the evening, we had pulled pork burgers, with a tower of cheese accompanied by crackers and chutney. 35 REAL WEDDINGS
