Eleanor Murphy and Thomas Gray, both 30, tied the knot at Shiningford on 13th August, 2016.
Here we find out more about their big day...
I'd seen Catherine Deane dresses online and loved the style of them. The neckline and back detail of the Laverne dress won it for me. I loved wearing it – it was absolutely perfect.
Following the ceremony we had drinks and games on the lawn outside the tipi. These included tin can alley – we used tin cans that were left over from the giant chilli we made for our 35 weekend guests for the Friday night before the wedding.
Tom isn't a fan of wearing formal suits and we decided that on your own wedding day you should feel comfortable. His boys also went for the casual look.
Tom and each of the groomsmen wore origami buttonholes made from paper personal to each person. Tom's was made from a map of Iceland, depicting where we got engaged. The gents also had pocket squares in fabric with origami birds on.
I made about 250 origami hearts, which were mounted on bamboo skewers and stuck in the ground around the venue.
We made a chandelier of 1,000 paper cranes! Having visited Hiroshima in Japan, we were struck by both their appearance and their message and so we knew that this was something we wanted to do. It involved some seriously big hula hoops, a lot of fishing wire and ridiculous amounts of paper folding but the final thing was worth every second!
Our table numbers were photographs of ourselves at various ages. It was so much fun looking through old photographs trying to find the best (or most embarrassing) ones to share with our friends and family.
With the help of friends and family we saved corks for about a year and made these into a heart decoration.
