WIN Your Wedding couple James Stone and Lisa Richardson finally celebrated their dream wedding on Saturday, after winning the Wiltshire Times competition back in November 2011.
The Warminster couple, who have been together for over 11 years, tied the knot in front of family and friends during a ceremony held at Leigh Park Country House Hotel in Bradford on Avon.
Lisa and James, who live in West Street with their three children, Jack, 14, Archie, five, and Charlie, three, had planned to marry in 2011, but were forced to cancel plans after a series of set-backs.
Lisa, 37, said: “It was an amazing day and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. It was more magical than I could have ever imagined.
“Everyone at Leigh Park was fabulous and I have to admit that I cried a little bit. The sun even came out around 1pm, so everything ran really smoothly.
“We are all quite tired out now, but I’m still on a high. I hadn’t actually seen the cake made by Cake 2 Remember until I walked in to the reception, but it was incredible, as were the flowers by Blooms.
“I really can’t thank all the sponsors enough for everything that they did to make the day such a special one, they have all been absolutely brilliant since we won the competition.”
As well as Leigh Park Country House Hotel, the other sponsors included the Clothes Horse, Beauty Bouquet, Lee’s Jewellers, Claire’s Crystal Classics, Elite Limousines, Courtyard Creative, Kevin’s Menswear, Simply Beautiful Things, Blooms, Cake 2 Remember and DC Leisure.
