Hayley Fletcher and Dan Smith welcomed in 2016 with a bang at their fun-filled New Year’s Eve wedding.
Hayley, 30, says scheduling the celebrations over the festive period meant she and Dan, 35, could spend plenty of time with family and friends.
“Having all of our friends and family together for New Year’s Eve would never normally be possible, so by choosing this as our date we got to have the best ever end and start of a year,” Hayley says.
The couple were watched on by 130 guests when they wed at The Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury, Gloucestershire on December 31, 2015.
Guests got into the New Year’s Eve spirit as the evening went on and Hayley says there’s nothing they would change.
“It was the party of all New Year’s Eve parties and was the most amazing way to celebrate our wedding and the start of the next chapter of our lives together, it was a new year and another opportunity to fall in love all over again. “

Stunning gold bridesmaids’ dresses were in keeping with the celebratory theme of the wedding.

The Marlowe, Buckhimshire pair have been together for 11 years. “I was looking for a part-time job before heading off to university and Dan offered me a job at the golf club he worked at and within a couple of months we were together, I think it was Dan’s plan all along when hiring me!” Hayley says.
Dan proposed while the couple were on holiday in Venice. “I had no idea what he was doing when he stopped on one of the little bridges after dinner… when he went to take the picture he pulled out the ring and captured a look of pure shock of my face,” Hayley says.
Gold-themed wedding decorations added glamour to the celebrations.
