Olympic medallist Joanna Rowsell's wedding last summer
at the lovely Cheshire venue, Heaton House Farm
The 26-year-old gold medallist married Daniel Shand, an accountant and former cyclist, in a civil ceremony held at the countryside venue. Joanna was introduced to Daniel by her Olympic teammate Lizzie Armitstead several years ago. Looking radiant in a pink lace dress, Joanna was accompanied by four bridesmaids, Keeley and Natalie Shand plus two fellow national cyclists Dame Sarah Storey and Lizzie Armitstead. Here are a few pics from her wedding which was in July last year.
There were 100 daytime guests who were later accompanied by an extra 30 evening guests. The ceremony took place at 2pm under the beautiful Green Oak Pagoda, with a local quartet providing the music for the civil ceremony. The time between the end of the ceremony and the start of meal was filled by a drinks reception where Prosecco was served. There was also entertainment laid on with guests being offered the chance to enjoy Frisbee games, soft football as well as giant bubbles. Others opted to just chill on the grass, sitting on soft blankets.
