Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding - January/February 2023 (Issue 96)

We had a three-course wedding breakfast and the food was delicious! In the evening, guests enjoyed noodles in takeaway pots with chopsticks, which went down a treat. The groom wore a navy three-piece suit from Cavendish Menswear with a sage green pocket square and tie. We had a traditional cake with different flavours including fruit cake, strawberry and vanilla, Seville orange plus lemon and elderflower. Old pallets with string and pegs made up our table plan. The tables were named after mountains we had trekked from Wales and the Lake District to Peru. Of course Machu Picchu was our top table! I picked multiway dresses for my bridesmaids as the gowns could be styled to suit each person, which was important as I wanted everyone to be comfortable and feel amazing. I wore a simple fit-and-flare dress with a low back and V-neckline. I felt incredible on the day and just so excited to marry Rich! 43 REAL WEDDINGS
