The bride, who was given away by her eldest brother, Neil, wore a San Patrique ivory wedding dress with a lace train and carried a bouquet of gloriosa lilies, calla lilies and gerberas.

The bridesmaids, Viv Leonard and Sally Bakrim, wore fuchsia pink floor length dresses and carried a smaller version of the bride's bouquet.

Sally, Emma's best friend, flew back from the Carribean, where she now lives, to be Emma's bridesmaid for the day.

The best man was David Pugsley, Michael's best friend.

Mr and Mrs Warburton held their wedding reception at The Tumbling Weir in Ottery St Mary before jetting off to Rome for their honeymoon.
