Marie Beazley, 40, married Daniel Gratton, 44, at St Peter's Church, Earley, with a reception at Bearwood Lakes, on 21st July, 2018.
My dress was made by Essense and fitted perfectly. My veil was handmade for me with beautiful diamantés.
I wanted to buy dresses that the girls could wear again and chose navy summer dresses. My bridesmaids were so grateful for the style because the weather was exceptionally hot!
We had the Beatles song All You Need Is Love playing as we left the church, and all our guests were smiling.
We hired a beautiful car, which made us feel like royalty. Every time someone beeped at us, the car beeped back with a honk sound, which made us chuckle.
We had a nautical theme. I used to work on cruise ships as a dancer and singer, and we both love our holidays and trips away by the sea. With Danny proposing on water, it was the perfect theme.
Our wonderful florist, Alexandra Revenko, made my flower handbag and the flowers for the groomsmen, mother-of-the-bride, mother-of-the-groom and top table. Everything was stunning, especially the rope and wheel entwined with flowers.
Our nautical cake had three tiers: carrot cake, chocolate mint and Victoria sponge.
We didn't realise until a few weeks before our wedding that our singer, Adam Isaac, had been on The Voice in Tom Jones' team and had got through to the semi-finals. His voice is exceptional, and he was one of the highlights of the day.
