All weddings are joyous occasions, but I’m pretty sure Bethany and Paul’s big day broke the world record for the “smiliest wedding in history”.

It’s a good job that Bethany is a physiotherapist because she and her husband Paul must have had some serious muscular strain in their cheeks after smiling for pretty much the whole day. It wasn’t just them either, as their guests were beaming too.

As you may be able to tell from the pictures, this wedding had a military twist to it. In fact, the whole day was organised in just a matter of weeks as Paul’s job means that they will soon be relocating so they wanted to tie the knot before moving away.

Not that you’d ever know it was planned in less than two months. Everything seamlessly clicked into place on what was a perfect day.

The ceremony was held at St Mary the Virgin church in South Luffenham, a beautiful little village in Rutland (is there anywhere in Rutland that isn’t beautiful?!) and the reception was held at Rutland Water Golf Course in a fantastic converted barn.

For the inner kid in me, one of the highlights of the day was getting the chance to whizz around the course with Paul and Bethany in a golf buggy. Paul, a keen golfer, also couldn’t resist the opportunity to quickly tee off, impressing a family of onlookers.

The laughter continued throughout the day with some entertaining speeches, followed by a ceilidh in the evening which packed out the dancefloor.

Just thinking about this wedding, you can’t help but smile.

Here is a selection of shots from the day. If you were a guest at the wedding, the full set of images are available on the galleries page.
