Real Wedding at St Nicholas and St Cyriac Church, Devon

A Rural Romance

Kelly and Matthew met during a night out in their local town of Kingsbridge. Eight years later, a very festive proposal followed as Matthew got down on bended knee in front of the Christmas tree in their new home.

The pair chose to marry in St Nicholas and St Cyriac Church in South Pool, followed by a marquee reception in the grounds of Matthew’s parent’s farm in Halwell.

Opting for a classic wedding, Kelly chose a gorgeous ivory gown by D’Zage accompanied by a beautiful bouquet of cream roses. The bridesmaids donned hot pink dresses while the groomsmen were traditionally dapper in tailcoats.

After a relaxing morning with her bridesmaids, Kelly stepped out in all her finery to walk through her home village to the church with her bridesmaids and stepdad.

After the service, Kelly and Matthew enjoyed some private moments revelling in being husband and wife, as they had photos taken in the beautiful gardens of a private estate. “We then headed back to the barn for the reception where we had some family photos taken and enjoyed spending some time with our guests,” Kelly recalls.

Guests indulged in a selection of fine canapés and Pimm’s followed by a hog roast, buffet and a very moreish chocolate fountain. A local DJ provided the evening’s entertainment, providing a pulsating party all night long. “We wanted a party for everyone to enjoy with lots of food and drink,” says Kelly. “It was very relaxed as all the formalities were finished and we had our first dance to Train’s ‘Drops of Jupiter’, then partied the night away!”

The newlyweds are hoping to visit Italy in the future for a belated honeymoon; meanwhile Kelly says of her day: “We both had the most amazing day and choosing our favourite part is very difficult – it was all perfect!” she gushes.

Her advice to other couples caught in the frenzy of the planning process is simple: “Enjoy every minute!”
