How they met
While working for the same company in Lincolnshire. Tom proposed while on holiday in Egypt on November 15, 2010.

The gown
An ivory, strapless taffeta wedding gown by Phil Collins, bought from Bride of Ledbury with a fitted bodice pleated waist, taffeta roses to accentuate the waist and one shoulder and a skirt sweeping out into a chapel train.

Grooms suit
A silver grey mohair lounge suit with an ivory waistcoat and Cadbury purple cravat and handkerchief hired from Mervyn James in Ross-on-Wye.

Bridesmaids dresses
Cadbury purple strapless maxi dresses with a fitted, boned, satin bodice with a chiffon skirt, from Monsoon.

The flowers
The flowers were made by Sue Rudge from Whitehouse Farm, Sellack. The bridal bouquet was hand-tied with purple phalaenopsis orchids, ivory roses, purple lisianthus with aspidistra leaves curled back and bear grass loops. The buttonholes were ivory roses and the posies were similar to the bridal bouquet.

Special touches
Lotties hair was put up into a stunning yet simple bun by Jo at Peter Hickman in Ross-on-Wye.

A very special touch was that Toms mum, Linda, hand-made Lotties veil. It had a satin edge with tiny pearls sewn in.

The day
The wedding service was conducted by The Reverend Mark Johnson at St Tysilios church in Sellack, near Ross-on-Wye, and the reception was held at Caradoc Court, Sellack. Vicki Burnham (Lotties sister) read Yes Ill Marry You, My Dear and Niall Wimsey read from The Song of Solomon.

After the service the newlyweds were driven by a chauffeured Bentley to Caradoc Court where the guests enjoyed Pimms and canaps in the gardens, served by Ascaris Catering, Hereford. The wedding breakfast was chicken liver pate with sweet and sour chilli onion salsa, melba toast and salad garnish, followed by roast rack of lamb served with redcurrant sauce, boulangere potatoes and roasted summer vegetables and chocolate mousse or lemon meringue pie. The wedding cake was a chocolate sponge with a chocolate ganache centre with purple ribbons and purple icing orchids made by Diane Bradley.

In the evening, four-piece band, The Hot Feet, from Wales, provided the entertainment and sang Stand By Me for the couples first dance. Friend Colm Cookson, took to the stage
and performed two songs as a very special surprise.
