The Wedding of Sian & Wayne
29th March 2018
Spring Has Sprung With This Sunny Daffodil Wedding
Sian & Wayne’s yellow-themed wedding was a tribute to Sian’s mother and the Marie Curie charity
Sian & Wayne’s spring wedding gave us all the feels. In memory of Sian’s mother, the wedding theme was a moving tribute and dedication to the Marie Curie charity with daffodils and sunny yellows throughout. With the wedding party playing bingo through the speeches, the bride almost not being able to recite her vows, and an unfortunate mishap with a barstool, their day was filled with both love and laughter.

Sian and Wayne Pugh from Chirk (Wrexham) were married in the Old Barn at Tower Hills Barns on 29th March 2018.
The proposal was not particularly romantic, but looking back, it was actually quite special.
Wayne had a tax rebate and posed the question, ‘a set of new golf clubs for himself, or an engagement ring,’ which would I prefer? Well, of course you can probably guess my answer to that!
I threw him in the car, and we ended up in front of my mum in her kitchen where he then proposed. My mum is sadly no longer with us, so I’m happy that she got to see the proposal.
We felt like we were part of the family at Tower Hill Barns right from the minute we saw it, and the staff were what swung it for me. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and they were absolutely fantastic. Plus, the setting really does speak for itself – it’s a stunning venue, and everyone I spoke to about it was recommending it.
Their rustic indoor ceremony
I wasn’t nervous at all on the morning before the wedding. The bridesmaids and I got ready in the cottage next to the barn, and I was really calm. Although it was lucky that I had no idea my sister’s dress had split all the way down the back and my make-up artist had sewn her into the dress (she did such a good job, you could never tell), as I probably wouldn’t have been so calm!
We had an indoor ceremony as we were married in the beautiful Old Barn. I walked down the aisle to a string quartet playing A Thousand Years. But right before I walked down the aisle, I heard my mum’s song Mama by Il Divo playing, and then the nerves really kicked in. Our register for the ceremony ended up being an old friend of mine, which was a nice surprise.
I did worry that we wouldn’t be married at one point as when it came time to say our vows, I kept forgetting the words the registrar was telling me to repeat!
Sian’s local wedding suppliers
As I lost my mum three years ago, I wanted to work with yellows and daffodils for the wedding theme colours, in support of Marie Curie Cancer charity. I was really grateful to have the support of many wedding local suppliers from Oswestry, Chirk, and Wrexham.
Food, Speeches, and The Evening Do
Our special day was filled with lovely memories, my father and my cousin (who came all the way from Australia) both gave lovely speeches, and our best man even had us all playing bingo during his speech!
For the entertainment we had a fantastic comic duo from Towyn called Barricade, and then we danced to our local DJ, Sound Attack. Our first dance, to Now and Forever by Richard Marx, was really special to us as it was the very first dance we shared together when I worked away in Cyprus.
We also have quite a few funny memories from the day, as my father-in-law tripped and landed on the videographer lights, one of my guests fell off the barstool, and another of my friends fell through the photo booth back-drop! I have to also mention the food, it was amazing!
The happy couple celebrated with a ‘family moon’ to Salou, in Costa Dorada. Our daughters love it there as we are all thrill-seekers and it has a large theme park.
