Clementine Boulton, 29, married Douglas Paine, 32, at St James's Church in Ashley, followed by a reception in a nearby wooded grove on 22 June 2013. She says:

"We wanted our wedding to include all of our favourite things - the countryside, music, delicious food and wine. It was all about creating a relaxed and fun day.

We married in the sleepy town where I grew up - the church is right opposite my mum's cottage. Because we invited too many people to fit inside the church, we erected a marquee outside with an audio and visual link to make sure that everyone could watch the whole ceremony.

A very kind local landowner let us use his woodland. There were two large clearings, so we had one marquee for the drinks reception and one for dinner and dancing.

The hardest thing to source was water; the field had no electricity or water supply - yet we wanted our caterers to prepare a three-course meal. My brother came to the rescue by arranging a water tanker.

I wanted colours that blended well with the countryside. We took the lead from the sash on my dress and opted for dove-grey, soft pink, ivory, and sage-green.

We used old hampers to collect cards and gifts, and a rustic wicker basket was used to store grey pashminas in case guests got chilly later in the evening.

Douglas was an organ scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge, so many of our guests were former choristers. They all agreed to assemble for a fantastic impromptu choir.

The music went on into the early hours and we had a fantastic midnight feast with porchetta, grilled halloumi and ciabatta.

My top tip: Take your time and enjoy the planning process as well as the day itself."
