Stacey, 34 and Dave 40, both from Plymouth met at The Lopes Arms (a 17th century former coaching inn in Roborough Village) when Stacey was 17 and Dave was 23. Stacey tells us "it was a joint decision to get engaged, we discussed it and had an engagement party but we didn’t get married until five years later.
We got married at the gorgeous China Fleet Country Club, Saltash – we were surrounded by 180 acres of beautiful Cornish countryside.
My dress was champagne and the bridesmaids dresses were latte. We had a similar colour scheme throughout the venue – everything matched and just looked stunning.
I got both my dress and the bridesmaids dress from America at David’s Bridal. I saw the dresses online and really liked them. So when we went to Las Vegas for my 30th birthday I visited the shop and just completely fell in love with them. I found my shoes on eBay, they were cream and had beautiful diamanté heels. They suited my dress perfectly.
The food was amazing, we had soup to start, roast beef and profiteroles for dessert. In the evening, we had hot gammon rolls with chips and pizza. It went down a treat with our guests. Truly Scrumptious Cakes made our cakes. We had nine cigarillo sponge cakes all with different fillings - they were amazing.
Our first dance was to The Power of Love by Jennifer Rush.
For our honeymoon, we went to Egypt Coral Sea Splash Resort for two weeks, which was fantastic. We took our three children with us."
