The wedding of Lisa Plank and Shaun Doherty

HOW THEY MET: Lisa and Shaun met through mutual friends three years ago.

THE PROPOSAL: Shaun popped the question at a romantic restaurant in Bristol in September 2013. He had a haribo ring to offer - but the real one was in his pocket.

THE WEDDING: The wedding was held on December 31 at Glenskirlie Castle. There were around 85 guests during the day, and a total of 100 at night. Lisa said that it was wonderful to have all the couple’s friends and family there to share the day as many had travelled from far and wide.

THE WEDDING PARTY: Lisa’s bridesmaid was her friend Michelle McIntosh, and the flower girl was Shaun’s daughter Ruby (8). The best men were Shaun’s friends Bradley Harris and Christopher Lee, and the ushers were Gareth Strange and Lisa’s brother James Plank. The page boys were Shaun’s sons Fletcher (9) and Kian (8), Ruby’s twin.

THE DRESS: The dress was very simple but Lisa had it specially customised by a dressmaker.

THE HONEYMOON: The couple spent five days at a log cabin in Blackwood Forest near Southampton.

THANKS: Special thanks go to the couple’s parents and the hotel staff.
