Suzanne and Graham’s English marquee wedding last month at their home in West Sussex was simply sensational. Our couple made sure everyone who celebrated the day with them would have an amazing day too. A stunning performance by Laura Wright moved everyone during the ceremony. Champagne and fresh oysters were a big hit during the drinks reception. To end the night Graham’s best man Patrick Olive swapped his boutonniere for his bass guitar to play with his legendary band Hot Chocolate!
