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.
You don't have to be Kate Moss to look amazing in tartan - honestly! We just chose this picture because we love it....as we love the idea of a Scottish wedding. I mean, it's just instantly romantic isn't it - without trying. Not just the Gretna Green thing - although how fun would that be? But the dramantic scenery, the bagpipes, the history, even the weather!
We are so excited to have this unique venue on our site. The Ivory Vaults is an exclusive location situated within the historic vaulted cellars of the Grade II listed Ivory House at St Katharine Docks.
Nestled between the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, the 10,000 sq ft venue is available for wedding receptions for 100 – 450 guests. And we are not talking just any old wedding reception, we are talking proper full on emersive entertaining ineractive themed wedding receptions. Believe us, they are masters of this! For example their medieval banquet includes 4 courses, medieval show, knights, acrobats...and there are costumes available to hire. As we know, there isn't anything bigger on TV than Game of Thrones right now, and they do a brilliant Thrones wedding!
