‘ We decided we wanted something stylish but not starchy , with a small intimate group of friends .’

Harvey Nics were absolutely superb and looked after us really well , sectioning off an area of the restaurant for our celebration . Pretty much everyone said that it was a lovely relaxing day that didn ’ t feel too organised . There were lots of great compliments about the food and service at Harvey Nics , and a few rounds of fabulous cocktails after lunch !
We felt excited , happy – and relieved it had gone so well . One of the highlights has to be an inspired moment by Phil ; as we were all walking from the registry office to Harvey Nics , he suggested we made a detour into the Castle Park Gardens , where there are ruins of an old church with gorgeous meadow flower beds . It resulted in some superb pictures from our fabulous photographer , Peter Morgan of Morgan James Photography .
We loved seeing everything come together after the months of planning – the ride into town in the beautiful midnight blue Bentley , how fab the suits looked with the buttonholes and how relaxed everyone was over lunch with so much laughter and enjoyment .
Our tips for others are to give yourself time to think about what you really want for the day , make it personal to you and try to relax when the day comes so that you enjoy it all the more , as it will seem to be over in a flash . Oh , and make sure you get a good photographer who you have briefed thoroughly beforehand , as you cannot go back and get those pictures afterwards .
We carried on the theme with a short ‘ mini moon ’ aboard the Cunard Queen Victoria . Andi had secretly upgraded the booking to a Grills Suite so we ended up eating and drinking rather more then was good for us , but we can just about still manage to fit into those wedding suits ! www . morganjamesphoto . co . uk
