My Big Day: Sally &Amp; Jono

When it came to planning their April 2014 wedding, Sally and Jono weren't afraid to break a few rules. Or to think outside the box – especially when it came to finding a venue for their big day.

The couple found the perfect place to say their vows: the Bluebell Railway station, an old steam train line running between East and West Sussex.

"The ceremony was in the old waiting room, and our wedding breakfast was served on board a fabulous 1920s steam train called the Golden Arrow Pullman," says Sally. Afterwards, vintage buses took guests to the evening reception at Trading Boundaries, where guests were entertained by swing band Harry's Tricks.

The couple brought their vintage-meets-creative flair to their nuptials, adding plenty of quirky touches like the personalised crossword puzzles they designed and the photo booths with silly masks and props to ensure guests were having fun.

Old vinyl record cake stand displays and edible album covers adorning cupcakes (made by Nicola at Picnic's Cakes) were a nod to Jono's career as a musician, as were the musical-note print wrapped wedding favours.

Sally and Jono parted ways with tradition and decided to get ready together, arriving at the Bluebell Railway before any of their guests and doing their photos, captured by Tim Simpson, before the festivities got underway.

"This turned out to be a great idea as we avoided that lull that sometimes happens when the happy couple are whisked off for photos leaving guests without much to do," says Sally.
