Samantha King, 32, a full-time mum, and Simon Hamilton, 34, an IT Sales Executive, held both their ceremony and reception at Gate Street Barn in Bramley, Guildford.

Budget: £25,000-£30,000

Floral budget: £2,000

Simon and I got engaged in Paris. I thought I was invited along to a work trip, but it turned out to be a surprise mini break! One evening after dinner, he suggested a late night stroll under the lights of the Eiffel Tower, where he proposed.

We decided to go for a civil ceremony and were fortunate enough to be married by my cousin, Jade. This was a surprise for everyone, as we managed to keep it a secret right up until the ceremony began.

The theme of our day was rustic and relaxed. We took our inspiration from the beautiful rustic barn and rural setting of our venue and the time of year. We loved the venue’s charm, log fires and outdoor fire pit (great for toasting marshmallows!) and its relaxed, informal vibe.
