Wedding of the Week: Emma Roberts and Derek Napier

The wedding of Emma Roberts or Derek Napier

THE COUPLE: Emma (38) is from Wrexham in North Wales and is head of History of Art at John Moore's University in Liverpool. Derek (46) is a production manager and is originally from Brightons. They now live in Cheshire.

HOW THEY MET: The couple were members of the same gym and met during social events.

THE PROPOSAL: Derek popped the question during a formal evening on a Caribbean cruise two years ago.

THE WEDDING: They were married on July 10 at Wrenbury Hall in Cheshire where 20 people attended during the day and 150 guests joined them in the evening. It was a beautiful day and all went to plan.

THE WEDDING PARTY: The best man was Derek's close friend Andrew Baird and the bridesmaids were Emma's sister, Jenny Lloyd, and niece Emily (7).

THE DRESS: Emma's gown was strapless with a heavily-beaded bodice. It was a pale blush colour and had a very full skirt. Emma loved her dress and said it had a Cinderella style about it.

THANKS: Special thanks go to both sets of parents for helping with the wedding.
