When it comes to bridal gowns, they don't come much more detailed than Bec's beautiful, hand-beaded Anna Campbell dress, Sierra

Snapped up from Coco & Kate bridal boutique, we were admiring its silvery hues and decadent detail all day long (those beaded shoulder loops!)

An equally sultry scene was set for Bec's arrival, with the Ceremony Barn dressed with elegant white floral arrangements - the handiwork of Stems Design - at the fore and hurricane lanterns lining the aisle.

Bec's entrance was proceeded by a beautifully dressed bridal brigade: her friend Sarah in a white chiffon and sequinned maxi dress, by Goddiva

After a seriously sparkling ceremony - not to mention a tear-jerking reading - Bec and Andy were officially wed, prompting a reception to remember ...

The Normans Grain Shed set a sumptuous scene, thanks to winning floral arrangements by Stems Design, fine fare from The Hog & Apple Food Co. and our signature fairylights.

Centerpieces paraded atop tall vases, allowing guests to talk across the table with ease. Each display comprising blousy white roses, ranunculus, spray roses, white Veronica and hellabores for a 'simple yet elegant' look.

Low-level arrangements spanned the length of the traditional top table, along with Bec's beloved bouquet - plus countless glass vases with floating tea-lights for added sparkle.

Favours came in the form of a miniature Raspberry Gin - perfect for toasting the couple.

The Hog & Apple Food Co's cuisine proved a talking point, as always, kicking off with anti-pasta sharing platters, served on tall wooden boards.

The cake comprised a tier of lemon drizzle with lemon curd icing, another of Cherry Bakewell and a Salted Caramel praline top layer with Swiss meringue icing. Made by Andy's cousin, it was placed on the same cake stand used for Bec's great grandparents' big day.

With the party in full swing, guests got down to the tunes of Hot Biscuit, while Espresso Martinis headlined at the bar. Here's to the happy couple, Mr & Mrs Preston!

We couldn’t have wished for anything more than what The Normans had to offer: from the breathtaking lighting in the Ceremony Barn, to the dancefloor and stage for our band - and everything else in between, The Normans has it all. The team were on hand to ensure that the timings were perfect, the guests were looked after and the day was as stress-free as it could be. An outstanding wedding venue.
— the beautiful Bec
