Michaela, 31, and Marcus, 30, married on 3rd March, 2018 at The Old Barn in Bideford, Devon.
We wanted our loved ones to be with us for the entire weekend and The Old Barn was very close to some lovely accommodation for our guests. We ended up booking a group of cottages complete with a swimming pool in the surrounding area that could house up to 60 people.
Our favours were M&Ms in small fabric bags that resembled our joint initials!
We decided to have long tables and after initially creating a seating plan, we abandoned it and asked our best man to tell our guests to sit where they wanted because some of our loved ones couldn't make it on the day due to the extreme weather. This seemed to work well!
Our centrepieces were small vases of flowers, candles, and plenty of foliage running the length of each table.
We decorated the barn with fairylights, candles and lanterns.
I wore a very simple Heidi Hudson dress that I loved and luckily Marcus's mum had a warm coat that she lent me to brave the cold in and have some outdoor photographs taken!
We really wanted to entertain our guests with some live music so booked a band called The Choons. They were great and had lots of our guests up dancing all night.
We surprised our guests with access to the bumper cars during the evening reception that are part of The Milky Way Adventure Park situated next to the venue. They were such a fun idea and made for some great photographs!
