Georgie, a chef, and investment manager Freddy, both 28, said 'I do' in the grounds of Georgie's grandparents' home. The sunny day went from country classic to modern drama, with plenty of sweet surprises for the guests. Georgie says: "My 'scrapbook' wedding became a reality. I love drawing and I sketch out ideas for cooking jobs, so when it came to planning the wedding, I drew my dream day - from the flowers to the decor. It was invaluable when translating my ideas to the suppliers."
"Our trad wedding became a glam party. The church, garden and champagne tent had a country feel, with purple and pink wild flowers, petal confetti and children running around. By contrast, the dinner marquee was blacked out except for spotlit tables and tablecentres of red flowers and fruit in giant black wine-glass vases."
"Each guest received a personal note. We tucked a handwritten card into each napkin describing that person and how Freddy and I felt about them. It was a lot of fun. We incorporated our favourite things into the decor. Each table was named after a penny sweet, such as 'red cherries', and we scattered those sweets."
"We made a fake exit. I included an extra card in our invites asking some guests to stay for the dinner and party. So, after the champagne reception, we left in a friend's Morris Minor back to my grandparents' house for half an hour. It was a nudge to the other guests that it was time to leave."
"I had a great going-away outfit. We went on honeymoon the next morning, so I changed into a red Matthew Williamson dress and returned to the party for more dancing - it was a great way to end the evening."
