Real wedding: A rustic themed wedding with a grey and mint green colour scheme
Sophie opted for a gorgeous princess style wedding dress with a full skirt and an open back, pairing the dress with Converse trainers for the ultimate in cool comfort.
Sophie walked down the aisle to a harpist playing Perfect by Ed Sheeran, and the newlyweds chose Tenerife Sea, also by Ed Sheeran, for their first dance.

The Berkshire wedding venue
Sophie and Ant chose Berkshire's <a href="https://www.hitched.co.uk/wedding-venues/cantley-house-hotel-and-barn_2811.htm" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Cantley House Hotel and Barn</a> as their wedding venue of choice. <br /><br />"We chose this venue as it had a beautiful barn which is exactly what we wanted," says Sophie.

The rustic wedding decor
"We always wanted a small rustic barn wedding, which is what we had!" says Sophie. <br /><br />The wooden pillars in the barn were decorated with faux ivy and fairy lights, and bunting made by Sophie's grandma was strung from the beams.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/ideas/mood-boards/15-beautiful-wedding-buntings-for-your-big-day/22654.html" target="_self">READ MORE: 15 Beautiful Wedding Buntings for your Big Day</a>
