Sarah Moore and Liam Murphy tied the knot in the picturesque village of Castle Combe
If she hadn’t already known, Liam proved his love to Sarah by marrying her on the same day as Bristol City’s last match of the season. The couple first got together in secondary school at just 11 years old, and then, after losing touch, they bumped into each other years later. As if by fate, Sarah saw Liam getting off of a coach after watching a Bristol City match, and it didn’t take long for the two of them to reconnect romantically.
The couple wed on an April day at Manor House Golf Club in Castle Combe, a gorgeous venue that’s surrounded by acres of parkland, woodland and lakes. “We loved the beautiful grounds,” says Sarah, a setting that made it a perfect springtime place to say I do!
Sarah admits she did leave a lot of the planning to the last minute, but with the help of family and friends, especially bridesmaid Sophie and friends Keely and Mel, the day went ahead smoothly. “I just wanted a fun wedding day that everyone would remember,” explains Sarah.
Keeping things bright on their special day, the groom wore a navy plaid suit paired with a pink tie, while the bride was resplendent in a traditional high neck lace dress from The Bridal Room. The look was completed with an eye-catching flower-bedecked umbrella, which was especially made for Sarah by her other bridesmaid, Claire.
Despite the spring morning starting with rain showers (for which that gorgeous umbrella came in handy!), the skies soon cleared up and the guests had a splendid day. The wedding details were captured by First Avenue Photography and Derek’s Video Productions, with Chic to Unique providing venue dressing services. The beautiful blooms were courtesy of The Rose Shed, and the couple were transported in one of De Gournay’s classic cars.
For both Liam and Sarah the day couldn’t have been more perfect. “The highlight of my evening was our first dance,” reminisces Sarah. “We started off with a slow dance to Coldplay’s ‘Yellow’, which then changed into ‘Chacarron Macarron’ and got all our guests up dancing! And even though things were last minute, we couldn’t have asked for a more fantastic day.”
