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.
Heaton House Farm is a charming former dairy farm with a collection of stunning sandstone barns that beautifully blends rustic charm with contemporary chic. Set behind an unassuming farming facade, this lovingly designed ‘hidden gem’ offers exclusive use for a range of wedding celebrations, large or small. Their excellence in organising weddings has been recognised as, for the second year in a row, they have won the Best Events Team award for the North-West region in The Wedding Industry Award. Not only that, they hosted the award ceremony. The evening kicked off with cocktails some of which were served from a 1970s Volkswagon camper van....
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 love Poundon House. Situated near Bicester in Oxfordshire, it is a private family home, which was built at the turn of the century by a follower of Lutyens in the Palladian style and is approached up an avenue of lime trees. There are two Reception Rooms licensed for Civil Ceremonies, and in addition the Terrace can be used to seat guests providing an exceptional outdoor setting for the Ceremony (maximum guests 200 persons). The Marquee is also licensed for Civil Ceremonies, and is an ideal backdrop for large Weddings. There are some available dates left for October and they are offereing a 25% discount!! This is an opportunity not to be missed! For further information call Natalie on 07866453831
