Jade Gracie married Christopher Jacobs, both 33, at Old Brook Barn, Navestock, on 24th June, 2017.
Chris and his groomsmen opted for a three-piece navy suit from Debenhams. The groom wore a patterned tie while the men of the bridal party had navy ones.
My gown was a sparkly 1940s-styled Ronald Joyce design, which fitted with our circus theme. I accessorised with flowers in my hair as I'd always wanted.
I'm a florist, so made all the floral décor myself. I wanted really bright and fun flowers and my favourites are coral peonies, which is why we choose to marry in June, to ensure that they were available. There were arranged alongside Miss Piggy and hydrangea delphiniums roses.
Our table plan was hook-a-duck, which was great fun – they also doubled up as key rings to take home.
For our centrepieces we opted for big chunky candle sticks topped with a bright posy of blooms with lots of tiny vintage-blue bottles underneath with single stems in.
Chris's mum made a beautiful four-tiered iced cake adorned with lots of flowers. One layer was broken in transit, so it became three tiers instead. We wanted it to look like it was sitting on top of an elephant stand like the ones you see at the circus, which we made out of an old bucket.
After the ceremony we had a vintage fun fair in the secret garden with ice creams, high strikers, hoopla, beat the buzzer and lots more – our guests absolutely loved it!
To greet us into the fun fair were the amazing Acro-Chaps, an acrobat trio who were dressed as vintage strongmen – they were brilliant and had us all in stitches with their cheeky ways.
