The newlyweds met when Andy worked with Maria’s mum and they became engaged on Christmas Day having moved into their new home.

Surrounded by their family and friends, the couple enjoyed a reception and entertainment by pianist Ken Robson, magic with magician Paul Edmondson, singing with David Julian and personalised sparklers for guests to light up the night.

Andy’s best man was his best friend Anton Byrne-Carter and chief bridesmaid was Andy’s sister Rachel Eaves.

Bridesmaids were Michaela Tart and Lisa Tart, the bride’s cousins.

Maria and Andy were also accompanied by one very special guest.

Maria, 25, a study co-ordinator said: “Lady Eaves, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was our beautiful doggy bridesmaid who was dressed in a flower collar from Flower Design. It was the most perfect and beautiful day I could have wished for.

“I felt so emotionally overwhelmed with joy when I saw Andy dressed in his tux waiting for me as I came down the aisle with my dad.

“I love Andy with all my heart and every part of our special day will be one I remember and cherish forever.”

And Andy, 28, an auditor added: “The moment I caught my first glimpse of Maria as she entered the room, she looked completely and utterly breath-taking, a moment and feeling that I’ll never forget.”

The couple honeymooned in Jamaica.
