The couple

Felicity Braund, 25, and Thomas Flint, 27, both from Bridgend.

The venue

The ceremony and reception both took place at Court Colman Manor in Bridgend on August 13.

How they met

Felicity was working at a golf club and Thomas came in a few times to eat.

He messaged her on Facebook and asked if she was working one night, telling her he would come in, and the couple had their first date on July 8, 2012.

The proposal

Thomas proposed to Felicity on December 23, 2014.

He had originally planned to propose at Winter Wonderland in Cardiff but it closed due to rain and high winds on that day.

Felicity said: “So he then decided to propose at Miller and Carter but he bottled it, and so he proposed in the car park instead.

“However, John Legend was playing on the radio when we got back to the car which was well timed!”

The wedding

A total of 89 people attended the couple’s big day, and Felicity said: “It was a perfect day, with glorious sunshine.”

Felicity’s hair was put up by Shelley’s in Aberkenfig, Bridgend, and she went for a classic French twist, with her make-up done by Emily Porter from Swansea.

The colour scheme for the wedding was dusty pink, and they had bouquets from Blooms and Balloons in Bridgend.

She added: “I wanted my favourite flowers – amnesia roses so the bridesmaids had them, along with ivory roses.

“The tables were set up beautifully with candelabras and amnesia roses.

“I also had dusky pink chair covers and pearl brooches from Jan Holmes Wedding and Events.”

The ceremony was held at 2.30pm on the day in the ballroom of the Court Colman, and Felicity’s dad walked her down the aisle to Christina Perry's A Thousand Years, played on the harp by Angharad Edwards.

Thomas and his best men wore grey suits from Dyfed’s Menswear with dusty pink ties for the groomsmen and an ivory tie for the groom.

The evening began at 7.30pm and local band Omega Blend played late into the evening.

The couple had their first dance to Kodaline’s The One, and afterwards, Felicity unzipped the bottom of her wedding dress to make dancing easier.

The honeymoon

The couple went on a cruise around the Mediterranean and visited Majorca, Sicily, Sorrento, Rome, Corsica and Menorca.
