It was a beautiful sunny spring day when Stewart and Toni got married at The Swan Hotel Bibury on Saturday 23rd April 2016.
The Swan Hotel at Bibury is such a beautiful wedding venue with its gorgeous gardens, plus its location is perfect for a wedding situated next to the river and right in the heart of Bibury which makes for great views for your guests and beautiful backdrops for the wedding photographs.
Our day started when we arrived at Bibury Swan Hotel for Bride & Groom preparations, both Toni and Stewart were getting ready at the hotel. When we arrived Toni was having her hair beautifully styled by stylist and make-up artist Hayley Hewlett. It was a calm morning as Toni got ready with her Bridesmaids and Mum. Meanwhile Stewart was getting ready with his brother and Bestman, once ready they headed outside to greet guests as they arrived.
With friends and family watching, Stewart and Toni said their wedding vows to each other and with a sealing of a kiss Stewart and Toni are now Mr & Mrs Dines. Two friends said readings during the ceremony and they also had a special guest attend while they were signing the register, their lovely dog Ralph, which was totally unexpected but the dog sitter surprised them. Being a Military wedding Stewart and Toni stuck to tradition and had a Guard of Honour, with their boots polished and swords shining the soldiers raised their swords to form an arch for the newly-weds to walk under.
While guests enjoyed the sunshine in the gardens, Stewart and Toni took a walk around Bibury for their wedding portraits and Ralph came along too. The speeches were brilliant full of laughter and emotion - perfect!! The Cake was made and beautifully styled to the Tiffany Theme by Bridesmaid Tasha. The First dance was fantastic! Stewart and Toni had a couple of lessons before the wedding and surprised guests when they took to the dance floor - lots of twirls, dips, lifts and kisses!
