After meeting in typical fashion, at work, Nikki and Mark Hopgood were together for two years before he popped the question to an unsuspecting Nikki on Valentine's Day, 2015.
The happy pair set the big day for 18-months later, on 28th August, 2016, and envisioned a Great Gatsby-themed celebration at 30 James Street, Liverpool. Here Nikki tells us more about their day...
As the venue was located in the city, it enabled us to have a walk out on the waterfront – an idea suggested by our photographer, which we loved.
The table plan and place settings were in a striking black design reflecting the Art Deco period.
Even the cake was black with gold details highlighting our Gatsby style.
My bridal gown was a floor-length, ivory sequinned number with a touch of gold sparkle. I accessorised with a '20s-style headpiece.
Mike Culleton, our master of ceremonies, was absolutely exceptional and a pleasure to work with. He gave a short speech and entertained the guests with some wedding anecdotes.
In keeping with the colour scheme our bridesmaids wore gold and black knee-length lace dresses.
We loved all the strangers that greeted us and gave us their well-wishes. We met an American traveller with his wife and it was their 50th wedding anniversary on the same day; we gladly obliged to his request to having our photograph taken with him – a joyous moment!
We performed a choreographed routine after our first dance to everybody 's surprise.
