Butterflies for Lisa and John on their big day

This year, Lisa and John Stanton took the leap of faith and promised to love each other for the rest of their lives.

Their wedding ceremony took place in the open air outside Newlands Hall, Chelmsford, in delightfully sunny weather.

The day boasted a champagne pink with butterflies theme, which even extended to the wedding cake, thanks to the hard work of Lisa's mum.

Other highlights of the celebration included a horse-drawn carriage and a groom's speech that didn't leave a dry eye in the house.

"It was an amazing day that we will cherish forever," said the couple.
