Kayleigh Doyle, 28, married Martin O'Grady, 28, at All Saints Church, followed by a reception at The Conservatory at the Luton Hoo Walled Garden on 5th August, 2017.
We travelled in two vintage cars. On the way to the ceremony we were late and my dad and I were laughing that the wedding couldn't start without me!
I got my dress from the first boutique I went to. The fishtail style showed off my height and I loved the beads at the back.
I had the most beautiful bridal shoes from Emmy London that made me feel like a princess on the day!
I choose to have airbrush make-up, which I'd never had before but I wanted it to last all day. I wore the same lipstick that I normally wear because it's my favourite.
I knew I wanted multi-way bridesmaid dresses because they can be worn in so many different styles. It was one of the first things we bought.
My maid-of-honour's daughter, Florence, was our flowergirl and Martin's godson, Corey, was our pageboy. They're both very special to us and we wanted to have them involved in the day.
Martin was in the Royal Marines when we got married so he wore his ceremonial dress. We chose royal blue tails for his groomsmen to complement his look.
Our bouquets were made up of dusky pink roses and gypsophila. They looked really pretty and fresh.
For our confetti we used dried rose petals in floral cones placed in a wooden crate.
The LOVE lights looked amazing on the dancefloor.
We decorated the marquee by hanging paper lanterns from the ceiling in pastel shades. It worked well against the white of the drapes.
We opted to have chair sashes that were in keeping with our colour scheme.
We loved our venue. The long tree-lined driveway looked stunning and there were so many beautiful areas to get some great photos.
We had a mixture of tall and low floral centrepieces that matched my bouquet. We liked the height difference as it gave depth to the room.
Our sweet cart went down a storm with our guests.
To add a personal touch we put photographs of our grandparents, parents and siblings on their wedding days in frames as guests entered the marquee.
We chose a half and half cake to incorporate Martin's military background and my dress into the cake design. It surpassed all our expectations we absolutely loved how it looked and it tasted delicious too!
My dad arranged for singing waiters to surprise us during dinner. Everyone was waving their napkins and singing along, it was such a fun moment.
We were really pleased with how our guest book and card table looked. It complemented our theme perfectly.
During the afternoon our guests played a range of garden games and a band played into the evening. They made it so much fun and even organised a dance off.
