Wonderful Wedding Wednesday - Mr and Mrs Molloy
It's Wonderful Wedding Wednesday time - doesn't a wedding just put you in a wonderful mood?! If you missed the first feature, catch up on Mr and Mrs Webb here and last week's Italian spectacular of Mr and Mrs Daley here.
Every week I will bring you a beautiful couple, on the most magical day of their lives. How lucky to have old and new friends, who have had such lovely weddings!
This incredible charity, based in Taunton, makes dreams come true. They organise and fund wonderful weddings for terminally ill brides and grooms, working with heartbreaking stories and often under critical time constraints.
I have stayed very close to home this week with the beautiful wedding of friends of ours, who live just 10 minutes away.
Sam and Marc met on a night out organised through a friend. When asked by her friend if Sam was keen on Marc, Sam exclaimed "Like?! I'm going to marry him!"
That was in 2005, and after 4 years together Marc proposed in 2009 with his late mother's engagement ring, which absolutely meant the world to Sam. Their special day was on 31st May 2010 with a traditional ceremony at Corpus Christi Church in Weston super Mare, complete with a vintage bus which kept everyone together and took the happy couple and all 60 guests to the reception at Cadbury House Hotel.
The boys from Marc's cycling club took their wheels to the Church doors and displayed a bicycle guard of honour, as they walked hand in hand out the church.
The resourceful bride and her friends made as much as they could for the wedding, spent hours drying rose petals for confetti and making metres of bunting. It was important to Sam and Marc that all their families were involved, with her Sister as the only bridesmaid, her Brother an usher, Marc's brother as best man, Marc's dad reading in Church, her Sister in law as the hair artist, her Mum and Nan arranging all the flowers and her Dad making the incredible tiered sponge cake.
The wedding reflected a vintage country style, with flowers in old jugs and teapots, cider as the welcome drink and a hog roast in the evening and place names held in apples. 100 guests joined them in the evening and danced the night away.
Sam recalls her shoes being one of the highlights of the day!
They travelled around Europe on an extended honeymoon and gorgeous baby Alfie was born in December 2012.
