On Saturday 8th June, in what was that morning, my rather grey and gloomy hometown of Llangollen, James and I tied the knot in St Collen's Church - ceremony lead by the fabulous Reverend Phil.

The week preceding had been one filled with angst over the weather and what effect the forecast of torrential downpours would have on our big day (due primarily to the fact that we had chosen to host the reception in one of the Canvas Tent Co.'s incredible tent pole marquees - something that ordinarily in June would not have posed a problem).

Luckily however, we decided a couple of days prior to hire an industrial heater (best decision ever), and despite some rain in the afternoon, we managed to keep everyone toasty with the day turning out to be epic. I'd go so far as to say the best ever - the sun even came out for us in the end!

By having the marquee in our own family field offset by the backdrop of the hills of North Wales, this really did enable us to create something special - a one off that no one else could mirror, with these personal touches helping to produce the relaxed, boho vibe that we had both envisaged. It was exactly as we had both imagined and wanted it to be - a day surrounded by our nearest and dearest, where you could feel the love generated by each and every person throughout.

In future, I plan to write a mini series on here about the day and the build up, both in order to share some tips with any future budding brides and to provide more information on our wonderful suppliers - all of them having gone above and beyond to ensure we experienced the perfect day. For now though, I just wanted to bring you all some of the incredible photographs that the ridiculously talented Tash - Love Luella Photography, has been kind enough to share with us as a little sneak preview of what is to come. Tash has also written a post about the day on her own site here, if you would like to take a look.

I have listed below, links to all of the wonderful people who helped us make the day what it was. If there is anything you spot that you would like to know more about feel free to ask as I would be more than happy to share. For now though, one final thank you - and that is to every one of you who traveled from far and wide to share the day with us. Your presence was sincerely felt and we love you even more now than we did before for your having done so.
