Suzanne Sickel, 38, married Diego Cremona, 33, at the Menlo Circus Club, California, in the US, February 2010. She says: 'Our wedding date was February 13th and - as we knew we'd be partying long into the night - we decided to embrace Valentine's Day fully.

We kept the ceremony decor all white, then really went with the romance theme at our reception. We decorated three long tables in red, bubblegum and hot pink, before dividing the venue into areas using curtains.

We also had 25 flags made to line the drive and hung the escort cards from ribbons. We asked close family and friends to wear red or pink.

I picked my dress because the design looked a bit like torn paper, which reminded me of opening Valentine's cards."
