A simple, yet elegant country wedding was the only way Molly Jeakings and Lewis White could imagine spending their special day, surrounded by loved ones.
Lewis made his special proposal on Dublin’s Ha’penny Bridge, that Molly accepted straight away. “I was freezing and wanted to get to the hotel, but Lewis insisted on stopping in the middle of the bridge,” remembers Molly. “He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!” Their fate was sealed with Lewis’ grandmother’s beautiful engagement ring, the perfect personal sentiment.
The couple, aged 24 and 27 respectively, married at St Andrews Church, Biggleswade, on August 8, 2015, followed by a country style reception in the church hall field. Decorated with love and endless amounts of quaint detailing, the marquee, supplied by Millhouse Marquees, was home to a feast of fruit scones, made by Molly’s nan and a hog roast supplied by Springbok BBQ.
“Our wedding day was perfect – the weather was on our side and it was sunny from morning until night,” says Molly. She was overwhelmed by the care and support given by friends and family to bring their day together. “A couple of my friends even slept in the marquee overnight, acting as security.”
The maid of honour and bridesmaids wrote a song to the tune of Grease’s famous “Summer Lovin’”, family friends provided the bar and Lewis’ speech still remains one of Molly’s most-loved moments, showing just how endearing and joyful the day really was.
The couple enjoyed their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, a moment made by all as part of their gift registry.
