Emma married Phil on 2 August 2014 in Shropshire. The pair had been together since New Year's Eve in 2010, and became engaged in September 2013 on a secluded beach on the Western Cape in South Africa, whilst on a trip to visit Phil's family. The wedding ceremony took place at a church in Shropshire, and the reception took place in a marquee in the garden of Emma's family home the same day. The décor was rustic and simple, and their aim was for a very relaxed day. They kept to a careful budget, and incorporated a lot of DIY and handmade elements, with extra help from friends and family.

The dress was originally strapless, which wasn't what I had in mind, but the shape was perfect. So I ordered extra material and a very talented friend made the top lace piece that buttoned into the back of the dress.
