Today we head off to Newark in Lincolnshire for the colourful, eclectic wedding of Donna...
Today we have a super glam wedding to share with you. It’s my birthday today, so I wanted to choose a wedding that was a little different, full of glam and the most beautiful bide. For me it’s a day of shopping, a trip to the cinema and a spot of dinner, I can’t wait! For the bride and groom, Ana and Pedro, their wedding was the most wonderful celebration, following a Great Gatsby theme, they chose lots of feathers, opulent flowers and the most stunning Spanish setting. Ana wears an absolutely knock out Ruben Hernandez gown, that has a removable skirt for the evening reception. A truly stunning wedding, that was kindly sent into me by their planner and stylist Paloma Cruz Eventos. Many thanks also to Oscar Guillen to for the lovely images.
Ana and Pedro were married on the 17th September 2016 at Finca El Torrero, Spain. ‘We wanted to get married in a garden! We had 150 guests and the wedding took 1 year to plan.’

Advice for Other Couples
My most important tip is that they get a good wedding planner.
My biggest surprise was night before wedding day. My bridesmaids came to the hotel where I slept, and they came with a photographer and with a great dinner. We had a very special moment which we will remember for ever.
