Colour Me Happy

Skulls, roses and tattoos made Sophie and Jon's celebrations all the more characterful

Sophie and Jon first met through mutual friends during a night out. 'It wasn't long before I was picking her up on my motorbike,' reveals Jon. 'She told me she had always wanted to have a ride on one, so I thought it was only appropriate to take her out to my local bike night on our first date. After that she was hooked, and many more dates involving motorcycles were to follow!'

The couple became engaged during a family holiday to Majorca, where Jon arranged a day trip to Cap de Formentor on motorcycles they had hired. 'I knew Formentor would be the perfect location with its stunning cliffs and crystal-clear ocean views,' says Jon.

The couple utilised the talents of their family and friends to help achieve the look of their day, first enlisting the illustration services of friend and bridesmaid, Abigail Duncombe of Peachie Pie Designs, for their stationery before handmaking the favours ' charity Sue Ryder lottery tickets and temporary tattoos ' 'which went down an absolute storm with all our guests'.

In keeping with the vineyard venue, each place setting had a wine cork holding the nametag, while the guestbook was Sophie's acoustic guitar personalised with Sharpies. Sophie's oldest brother hand-drew the table plan on a family mirror and the sweetie bags were individually stamped with multicoloured sugar skulls.

Arriving in style in a 2000s Ford Mustang GT, Sophie stepped out in swoon-worthy style in a custom-made Suzanne Neville gown further personalised with a bespoke Swarovski crystal veil and leather jacket, with a motif she'd individually designed.

Not to be outdone by his bride, Jon rode in on his Triumph Speed Triple 1050 accompanied by his groomsmen on their bikes, whose classic tweed waistcoats and jackets were paired with black chinos and brown brogues.

The sumptuous wedding breakfast comprised a trio of arancini, barbecued leg of lamb and chicken with salsa verde, giant couscous and local greens, and affogato, while the couple's love of tattoo styles was stunningly captured in their bespoke cake: a heart-shaped red velvet chocolate sponge decorated with solid white chocolate skulls and roses. 

After a first dance to Vukovi's 'Colour Me In', live covers band 'The Generations' kept the dance floor full throughout the evening festivities.

'For us it was small moments throughout the day,' says Sophie of her most treasured memories. 'The weather was so dramatic, raining one minute then gorgeous sunshine the next, it made the times when we were having our photos taken even more special.'

By word of advice, she says: 'Don't rush any aspect of the planning. We had two years to make the arrangements and make sure we were happy with every decision we made. The day goes by in the blink of an eye, so make sure you have time to enjoy yourself and let your hair down. As the bride, it wasn't until just before our first dance before I managed to have a glass of wine!'
