Greg and Laura's outdoor ceremony featured stunning statement floral pieces.

Laura Connolly, 32, married Greg Gooding, 34, at Trevenna Barns in St Neot in Cornwall on 4th June, 2018.

Being a wedding florist, I knew how I wanted the room at Trevenna to look as soon as I walked in. We suspended an oak beam from the ceiling in the centre of the room and draped it with flowers, rustic light bulbs and small gold frames showing photographs of the loved ones who couldn't be with us on the day to celebrate.

We loved our venue as soon as we first visited it.

We had an outdoor ceremony, so Greg's dad made us an entrance to the aisle using painted doors with a beam across the top draped in flowers. Later in the day, we moved these indoors, and they became the backdrop for the photo booth.

Our bridesmaids wore dresses in different styles and colours. This gave me the inspiration for our colour palette. They wore gold leaf hairpins to match my headpiece.

Greg wore a stylish linen jacket, while our groomsmen teamed waistcoats with black trousers. I ordered a variety of ties and bow ties in our chosen colour scheme for them to pick from.

Our three sons all wore identical waistcoats and ties. We gifted them personalised pocket watches on the morning of our wedding.

Greg's four best men gave the most memorable speech, turning it into a game show whilst wearing gold sequin jackets! All of our guests got involved and loved it.
