Reception details, such as name places, table plan, favours, card table display, signs etc created by my sister Claire.
Catering: John Groom

Drinks: Pimms and sparkling wine on arrival followed by a selection of drinks as chosen by my father
First dance: Be My Baby by the Ronnettes.
Sources of inspiration: My sister Claire! I wanted a county look to the marquee obviously growing up on a farm and now marrying into another farming family!
Memorable moment: The moment we walked into the marquee as Mr and Mrs Hemmant, to so much applause from all our friends and family, I could feel myself welling up. I tried to keep myself composed which wasn’t helped when Will stood on the train of my dress as we walked to the Top Table – laughter then took over the marquee!!
Best advice for planning a wedding: We did it in 16 weeks and I’m so pleased we didnt hold on another year. We were extremely lucky in that everything we wanted was available (caterer, marquee, band, church, photographer etc) – it was everything and more we would have ever envisaged as our wedding day and I certainly couldnt have done it without the help of my family – surperb wedding planners!!
