Where and when?
Suzanne Le-Doux and Ryan Lucas married on Saturday 18 December 2010 at St Peters Church in Mevagissey at 12pm, followed by a reception in the marquee suite at The Carmarth Hotel at Fistral Bay in Newquay.
About the day
At 6am we woke to a snow-covered garden. Luckily we had prepared for this and our photographer had even slept overnight in the drive to make sure he was there on time! After myself and my three bridesmaids had scraped the snow off the car, we had a slow and icy drive to the hair salon in St Austell. The wedding car we had originally booked phoned moments later to cancel, but we were rescued by the grooms uncle, who chauffeured us to the church.
The sun shone and the church looked amazing with the Christmas tree lights and soft candles. We also had carols during the service. Photos outside the church were brief in the winter temperatures, but when we arrived at Newquay we had several amazing coastal pictures taken before our welcome drinks.
The rest of the day was fantastic- emotional speeches, terrific food, photos by the Christmas tree, a Jazz band playing Christmas classics, a pick and mix table and even a visit from Father Christmas with chocolate treats for the younger guests. We had our first dance to Everything by Michael Bubl to start the evening disco.
We had booked to go to New York from 20-30 December 2010 but that also got cancelled due to bad weather conditions at Heathrow and in New York. We managed to get away though and celebrated our first New Year as a married couple in beautiful and snowy Prague.
Most memorable moment
Just the two of us entering the marquee suite and seeing it decorated exactly as we had visualised it for so long - a magical moment.
