After the heart-felt wedding ceremony, the newlyweds were driven in Betsy, a VW Camper, to Glewstone Court. The hotel was transformed to medieval Camelot with round tents positioned on the top lawn. After the speeches the wedding party dined on a feast, including head chef Vicky Lyonss signature pork dish with an Italian twist.
The evening celebrations started with homemade mulled cider, feet stomping dancing to The Clone Tones and fun and games in the DIY photo booth. A delicious spread of Italian charcuterie, gorgeous cheese cake with crusty breads and scrumptious helpings of the lemon drizzle wedding cake made by the couples friend Dawn Kelly helped to fuel all the festivities.
In Italy: the Cilento coast and Rome.
