Matt and Libby were lucky enough to tie the knot just a month before lockdown! The pair are keen skiiers and with Matt proposing on their annual ski trip to Austria, they wanted to incorporate skiing elements into their wedding through a simple, rustic theme with rustic logs and ski destination table names. Their colour palette of navy blue and blush pink complemented this perfectly! Libby tells us all about their special day, some of her favourite wedding photos and sticking to budget...
How did you meet?
We met at School, getting together at Sixth Form – our wedding date, 22-02-20 was 10 years to the day we got together. So when he proposed in January 2019, I knew this was the day for us- and bonus it was a Saturday. This date holds a special place in our hearts and looks quite cool too.. He’ll never have an excuse to forget our anniversary.
What was your favourite part of the day?
Walking down the aisle to the Greatest Day, played by my now Brother in Law - then the same song in the evening with all our guests in a circle and us dancing in the middle. Knowing that we truly did have the 'Greatest Day!')

Tell us about the proposal...
We ski in Austria every year, so on a very snowy day in January 2019, on my favorite ski run (Red, No4 – Altenmarkt, Ski Amade!), when it was an empty, in my favourite place in the world he got down on one knee. It was a great Apres-Ski that evening, that’s for sure!
My husband's little brother Jamie played the organ for us, so it was really personal. Our vicar was fantastic and allowed a modern twist on our service. So we has pop songs on the organ while we were signing the register too.
  • Song you walked down the aisle to: Greatest Day - Take That
  • Song for walking back up the aisle as a married couple: You’ve got the Love - Florence and the Machine
  • First dance: Your Song - Ellie Goulding
Tell us about your wedding theme...
We love this time of year, as keen skiiers we were able to us this as part of our theme. We wanted a simple, rustic winter wedding (as for us a perfect wedding was never on the cards) our time of year, golf, ski, gin rustic theme – with navy blue and blush pink, suited us to the ground. Gin bottle decorations, paired with our love of skiing so rustic logs and ski destination table names.
What was your Wedding Budget – and did you stick to it? 
We did everything for £12,000 which we roughly what wanted to spend. As we only had a year from engagement to paying final bills and had just brought our first home.
Advice for future brides...
Your wedding is your wedding, make it all the things you love with all the people you love. Have clear budgets that you don't overstep, otherwise, I can imagine it would overtake your life and your finances too. We found buying little bits during your planning. meant that we had everything we wanted and didn't notice the cost too much. Most importantly take a moment just to look and smile at your day... and then enjoy a honeymoon afterwards.
(OK so we go a slight extension of a honeymoon as we went back to work for a week and then it was lockdown... but hey, I now know my husband knows I like an afternoon G&T and is quite handy at house renovations)!
Did you make any wedding DIYs?
Most of our wedding!
Did you have have anything unusual at your wedding?  
I am a Golf Manager and we both work at a local Golf Club, and have a love of Golf, the Beach and Cornwall - so the idea I could walk across a Golf Course in my wellies and wedding dress to get married was very special. St Enodoc Church is a really special place tucked away with fabulous views across the Golf Course, Daymer Beach and the Estuary. Matt also grew up in Padstow opposite so it felt a fitting location. We were able to get some pictures of hitting a golf shot. 
My lady members also did a Golf club arch for when I came out the church, which was extremely personal and special.
What food did you have at your wedding?  
Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pud, a plate of individual mini puddings: Brownie, Panacotta, Jelly and Strawberries/Merriange (I couldn’t chose so this was ideal). Then scones with tea/coffee after speeches.
Tell us about your hen do...
I went to Bath with 16 girlfriends three weeks before the wedding, including my 80 year old Grandma. We did an old school Sports Day, and a cocktail making class. We had such a laugh!
Is there anything you wish you'd done differently?
Nothing. though to some it was unperfect, to us it was perfect and that’s what matters! Although maybe it would have been slightly warmer, as at 8 degrees I nearly froze!
