Felicity Landrock, 26, married Philip Mettam, 26, at Salisbury Cathedral, followed by a reception at Godolphin School on 16 August 2014. She says:


"We decided early on that we wanted a traditional summer wedding with lots of fizz, croquet - and a boisterous cèilidh! We were involved with every single detail and, while at the time it seemed like we'd taken on a lot, we knew we'd make the day perfect.

We rented a house near to the cathedral which meant my maids and I could walk to the ceremony. Lots of people stopped to watch us, which was very flattering - the cathedral doesn't often have weddings and we married at the height of tourist season.

About 35 of our guests turned up the day before to help us decorate the marquee. We had the ushers and bridesmaids making headbands and putting up bunting, my parents making sandwiches and our band hanging fairylights. It was a mass production and we couldn't have done it without them.

Philip and I wanted our reception to be pretty relaxed, so we served a family-style meal with platters of food. We had cold rare roast beef, gravadlax (raw salmon, cured in salt, sugar and dill) and warm potato salad.

There were so many amazing DIY details across the day. I'm a fashion and interiors stylist, so I made the floral arrangements; my mum baked the cake, while a friend of my mum's created the giant 'Love' letters - Philip then painted and lit them with festoon lights. We wanted our wedding to scream 'us'!

My top tip: Communication. Discuss every little detail; this way nothing is forgotten."
