Rebecca and John met on a night out. “I was attracted to Rebecca's good looks and witty sense of humour,” John tells us. Rebecca adds, “I thought John was very handsome and had some impressive dance moves!”
John planned a surprise proposal on a beach in Bude during a holiday in Cornwall. “It was a very special location for us because we have shared some amazing trips there,” Rebecca tells us. “So it became the place to create yet another magical memory!”
Here Rebecca tells us more about their rustic, farm-themed big day…
We wanted my (Rebecca's) farming background to play a part in our wedding, so our table plan was one of my father's tractor tyres filled with flowers, and the name of each table was pegged from twine.
We are extremely lucky to have family friends who own the manor house where we held our marquee reception.
Our tables were named after James Morrison songs because he is one of our favourite musicians. We chose one of his numbers for our first dance.
We chose a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud in two-tone silver grey for us, and a black Bentley Continental to transport our bridal party in.
My ivory dress was decorated with sequins, beads and an embroidered floral design, plus it featured an elegant train – I loved it. It was a Morilee Madeline Gardner gown that was ideal for a church wedding.
John wore a traditional three-piece morning suit with a dusky purple cravat and an embroidered lilac waistcoat. His groomsmen wore the same, and our pageboy looked so cute in a white linen shirt with grey pinstripe shorts.
