The Old Stables wedding

Emily and Greg start new chapter at rustic wedding

Two impending arrivals on the one day signalled a new chapter in Emily and Greg’s lives.


“In January 2017 Em’s engagement ring arrived from Hatton Garden and on the same day we had another arrival expected as we found out Em was pregnant!” Greg,” 27, recalls.

He and Emily, 30, met online about three years before, but Greg’s life in the military meant the time they had together was precious.

“We didn’t want a long engagement but due to giving birth in August 2017 to a beautiful baby girl called Evelyn, we decided to set the date for February 2, 2019.”

The couple chose St Peter’s Church in Thornton, Leicestershire for their rustic wedding before the reception at The Old Stables in Swithland surrounded by 105 guests.

The couple personalised their celebrations by using people they knew to bring their creative vision to life.

Emily describes the rustic wedding like a dream come true.

“We had such a crazy relationship being apart from each other for months due to being in the

military when we met. To tie it all together with our loved ones and our beautiful 18-month-old daughter was a dream come true. It made the hard times worth it,” she says.
