Marcus and Becki’s Blue and Yellow Sunflower Wedding. By Jessica Grace Photography

Todays wedding is a fun filled, chilled out day, full of yellow, blue and lots of sunflowers. Becki and Marcus decided on a marquee wedding so they could add their own personality to the day. They brought in lots of bright blue and lovely yellow and incorporated with rustic touches, including wild flowers, hessian bunting, chalk boards and old family photos. The celebrations were topped off with chinese lanterns being let off at the end of the night containing messages from the guests. Thanks to Jessica Grace Photography for the images.

‘A chilled-out wedding full of great family, amazing friends, a beautiful setting and most importantly, love and happiness’

Becki and Marcus were married on 2nd August 2014 at St Andrew’s Church, Farnham then Waverley Abbey House, Farnham. We had visited the ruins on many occasions before we were engaged and always thought how beautiful they were. When we found out we could have our reception there, it was a done deal. We had 90 guests in total and it took 1 year to plan.

Special Moments
We cannot pick just one moment; the whole day was perfect! However, setting off a lantern, filled with messages from our guests, with our best man and bridesmaid was very special.

Advice to other couples
Just relax; it will all sort itself out in the end.

Biggest surprise
All the guests forming an arch for our exit to ‘Wonderwall’; it was impromptu and a great way to leave.
