Guy and I knew we wanted to get married in Bristol and after a thorough search of local venues we settled on the Lord Mayor’s Mansion in Clifton, which proved to be a wonderful location. Allowing for the possibility of typically dreadful British October weather, we found a venue with lots of inside space, though fortunately, it was unseasonably warm and dry so were able to spend a good part of the day outside.

At our welcome drinks the night before, we had had to wade through a small flood in the village to make it back to the hotel - and I had lain awake for several hours wondering how on earth my dress would survive the next day! But I need not have worried - nothing would dampen the spirit of such a wonderful day...
