Another DIY wedding, and Alex and Sam even had their ceremony at Alex’s mum’s house! Not the legal ceremony obviously. That happened at the register office during the week, but they just had two friends as witnesses so that their home ceremony felt like the real thing.

Alex is a graphic designer, and that was quickly apparent from the incredible attention to detail that had gone into all of the different bits and bobs at the wedding. Little tags, signs, posters, personalised napkins, etc. etc. She was also very particular about the balloons used in the garden quickly removing some stray heart-shaped ones that appeared!

Other highlights of the day included gospel singers, emotional speeches, a post-dinner raffle, a window into their lives on a cake, ice cream for all, a magician, a smoke machine (yay!) and even a costume change.
