Sian and Jonathan

Sian Lloyd and Jonathan Ashman: Home front

TV weathergirl Sian knows there's more to a location than sunny skies when it comes to finding the perfect place to tie the knot. Britain has some great locations, too.

She and groom Jonathan settled on the unique destination of Portmeirion in North Wales. "It's so magical and otherworldly…" says local girl Sian of the mock-Italian village on the Snowdonia coastline. "I always said I wanted to get married there. The day we went to look around in early December the sky and sea were blue, and Jonathan tuned into it straight away…

We both wanted a small, intimate wedding and it was such fun - the day was full of laughter and the only thing I worried about was whether my mascara was running!"
