The ceremony was stunning, and tears were shed all round. The bridal party drove to various locations for photos and we partied in the Woody bus with plenty of bubbles.

The reception was held at Moniker Warehouse an industrial space that oozes coolness. I have a passion for urban interiors and this place ticked all the boxes, with it’s exposed brickwork and copper pipes on display throughout.
