Jaida, the ‘White One’ by Pronovias was my wedding dress. I tried on all styles of dress and knew that my dress was the one as it was the one that I stayed in the longest.

Our wedding venue Blickling Hall is on our doorstep and we’ve spent many days wondering around the grounds. It’s such a stunning venue that we wanted to share with our family and friends.

The bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen suit ties were from Dessy – the colour was celedon.

Josh is a very keen cyclist therefore we had bicycles around the venue and a subtle bicycle theme throughout the day.

We ordered the flowers to arrive 3 days before the wedding and the day before we made all of the table settings.

We decided early on that we wanted to make our cake for the wedding and spent many weekends testing them. My Mum made the cake and Josh decorated the cake with handmade flowers!

I’m loving the subtle ‘bike theme’ running throughout the day and the beauty of that venue. Blickling Hall. What an amazing place!
