Sian and John’s elegant vintage theme was evident in the styling of their tables. Each table had a tall, art deco vase in the centre, filled with lilies and deep red ostrich feathers. Rosebuds were sprinkled on the guests’ tables, which, as well as looking beautiful, smelt gorgeous too!
Tea lights burned away, illuminating the gold frames Sian had placed on each table, each one containing a different love poem, keeping romance evident throughout the ceremony.
Sian’s father said grace before the guests tucked into a meal of fish cakes, beef wellington and a trio of desserts. Sian’s sister Jan followed up the meal with a speech. As she is a barrister, she acted as though she was addressing a court, before sentencing Sian and John to ‘life’ together, which amused the guests.
