Your Gloucestershire and Wiltshire Wedding - October/November 2023 (Issue 41)

My son walked me down the aisle which was a wonderful moment. We hosted our reception in the opulent Kerry Suite. We enjoyed an outdoor ceremony in the beautiful grounds of the Bowood estate. Because we were already legally married, we were able to add personal touches to our ceremony. We chose Bowood because it’s a beautiful venue set in stunning grounds that are home to a championship golf course and Andy loves to play golf! Our hexagonal-shaped acrylic place names featured hand-written calligraphy in white and our guests took these away with them as favours. They were placed alongside pearl napkin rings which tied in with the embellishment on my wedding dress. REAL WEDDINGS 33
