I’d previously met Emma and Trevor at the Donington Park Farmhouse the summer before their wedding, we’d arranged to meet there for a drink so that I could say hello and show them my work, and so that they could check I wasn’t a complete physco (I’m not!!). Fortunately, I put on a good show and they booked me the following week! But I remember leaving that night and thinking they weren’t normal, and I mean that in the nicest possible way (they’ll understand!!). They’d chosen the farmhouse because it was different and unique, and that only reflected their personalities, they certainly didn’t want the traditional “what you expect” kind of wedding.
We met up again in the build up to the wedding, discussing the plans for the day. I knew Emma would be arriving in a VW Camper, and that Trevor had a new suit with an amazing dried flower buttonhole, but that was about as close to “mainstream” as it would get. I certainly didn’t (and I don’t think many of the guests did either) expect to see Hulk Hogan sat on top of their wedding cake, or Emma to be wearing a blue floral handmade dress (courtesy of Jema Hewitt by the way!), or that they’d walk out of the ceremony to AC/DC Back in Black!!!!! But they did, and it made for one hell of a wedding.
So, congratulations Emma and Trevor on an amazing day, this is my record of your madness:
