It took me a while to choose our reception space because I was looking for somewhere intimate that already had a beautiful interior. When we visited The Salon at Spring, I knew I'd found it. I love how it resembles a greenhouse: all-white, with a high glass ceiling and lots of plants. It's exactly what I had in mind.

The restaurant's food and staff were exceptional. Their service was faultless and Skye Gyngell's menus are phenomenal. We served crab or a quince salad to start, followed by grilled lamb or sea bass, then apple galette for dessert. Our guests were blown away.

I stopped trying on gowns altogether when we found Pronovias' Delfina dress. It was perfect for me. I loved its understated bateau neckline and v-back, and the voluminous skirt just lifts the whole look. Pronovias' V-2915 cathedral-length veil went with this beautifully. I chose it for its lace - because my gown was simple, I wanted to add a little drama to my look.

Sangkyun wore a classic navy suit from Pal Zileri with Barker's Falsgrave shoes and a Hawes and Curtis shirt. We loved his dove-blue, handmade silk tie from Magnus & Novus.

Florist Emma Soulsby made my bouquet from ranunculus, eucalyptus, dusty miller and avalanche rose, which was completely stunning and went with our green and white colour palette.
