Tom and Celia both live in London, but returned to Celia’s home town in Norfolk to get married on a beautiful September day with perfect weather.
They hired a piece of land next to the Baconsthorpe Castle ruins and decorated a marquee with suspended foliage and florals which hung from the roof. Needless to say I did a happy dance when I first saw this! Somehow they transformed the plain white marquee into a floral paradise, the low hanging foliage creating a “roof” that made the marquee feel more intimate and warm.
I met Celia at her parents holiday home a stones throw from the venue to capture some champagne and giggles before Celia opened her gift from Tom. Out of the box came a pair of personalised trainers and a letter from Boris Johnson (at that time the Mayor of London), wishing them a happy wedding day, after Tom had jokingly written to him with an invitation!
At the church the mischievous surprises continued when a hidden message was revealed at the bottom of Tom’s shoes – orchestrated by his best man and ushers (scroll down and spot it!). The night ended with a jam packed dance floor and some fire pits close by for guests to sneak away to cuddle up and enjoy the twinkly Norfolk sky.
