A Midsummer Night's Dream

Suzie Duru, 31, married Nick Smith, 30, at The Manor House in Castle Combe, Wiltshire, in June 2012. Suzi Says: "We always knew we wanted an outdoor wedding, very natural but still stylish. We wanted our guests to have a great experience and enjoy each section of the day by seeing something new each time they moved to a different area or tent. It was really important for us that we didn’t stick too rigidly to formalities which is why we had a civil ceremony with readings from a film, a friend of ours playing our favourite song, right through to my brother doing a speech. In terms of styling, we took our initial brief as that of a boutique hotel. We wanted the look to be very contemporary yet timeless. My advice to brides: Make sure you set a realistic budget and build a good contingency in there from the beginning, there will always be hidden costs that crop up."

  • Hi there! Not sure that you will remember me, I used to work for you lovely Dad many years ago.; probably 15 years ago or so. I came to Marbella with you Shelly & Spencer and used to take care of you all when you came to stay at your Dad 's house in Petersham. We kind of lost touch. Anyway I was at a Wedding in Weybridge today and met your husbands cousin . She said that she couldn't not believe just how much I looked like their new cousin -in-law Suzy Duru ! I replied she didn't have a brother called Spencer did she? .... And you can guess the rest. So lovely to see your lovely Wedding photos and to see you sooooo happy. I was pleased to see your Dad & Shelly to. Send my love & good wishes. Paula xx
