Saturday 9 August - Missenden Abbey

Amy and Nick

I met Amy and Nick at a wedding fair and then they came to my house for an engagement photoshoot which was great fun and I loved that they used one of the photos on their tableplan. I started the day at Amy's parents house with the girls getting ready.

The ceremony was held at Missenden Abbey and was the most fun and emotional I've ever been to. The bestman swopped the rings for Haribo sweets... even the registrar was in on the act.

During the signing of the register, Amy's sister and friends sang a Welsh hymn that had everyone crying!

No one was shy with the confetti at this wedding!

There's no shortage of lovely countryside views, gardens and even a folly hidden at the Abbey. Perfect for the bride and groom to get away from their guests for a few minutes.

Amy's dad had brought his beach buggy on site for some fun photos. Well it did match the wedding colourscheme. All the kids used it as a climbing frame and sit in toy.

A marquee had been put up next to the Abbey for the reception which was decked out in blue and white with rugby table names and rustic wooden centres. The cake toppers were perfect copies of the bride and groom in respective rugby shirts, with the wedding date as the numbers on the back.

Now I go to a lot of weddings, and unfortunately hear the same phrases used in many bestman speeches. However Gareth's was the best I have ever heard! Complete with school masters gown, mortar board and cane he proceeded to give Nick his school report (real facts and figures) plus interactive tests and photo evidence. Just brilliant.
