Cleethorpes jeweller Daniella Draper has tied the knot - with her own creations forming a central plank of the ceremony.
And while she broke with tradition, marrying David Scowcroft away from her home town – instead opting for the groom’s Windermere – she took plenty of Lincolnshire touches with her.
She selected Paris Hodson’s Stalf label for her bridesmaids' dresses, having used the Caistor company when creating the corporate identity for her outlets, and Louth ’s Vincent and Stubbs Florist created floral displays for the marquee.
When it came down to the rings, she took matters for their hands into her own.
David, the grandson of Swinton Insurance founder Ken Scowcroft, went for a an 18ct rose gold band with a single baguette and Daniella went for a platinum band with 5 small baguettes to match her engagement ring, which her husband had made for her.

Daniella has quickly become one of the resort’s famous daughters, opening first a workshop at Meridian Point, before a first pure retail outlet in Sea View Street.
Lincoln, Beverley and Bowness have since followed, with London anticipated next month.
All are supplied from a Grimsby workshop on E-Factor’s Enterprise Village.
A black and white still from the wedding now adorns her website, fronting her Love Story range, with her personal tale almost a case of life imitating art as the Drapers had shot a promotional video of young lovers in the national park in the run up to the previous Christmas.
It seemed to tee-up a proposal that never came, not the case for David as he popped the question in the Lakes, where his family - a regular feature in the Sunday Times Rich List - have settled, having hailed from Manchester.

The proposal led to the aisle of Winster Chuch in Windermere, before she was whisked to the reception in the grounds of her in-laws' home, a mansion set in hundreds of acres of Cumbrian countryside, in a classic open-top sports car.
Daniella, and younger sister and bridesmaid Holly, were both schooled in Windermere, with David a former school friend.
Mother and business partner Della has previously told how her creative flair was unearthed within the art block at Windermere St Anne’s, before heading to Central St Martin’s in London, then returning to Lincolnshire.
The newly weds, who tied the knot on July 21, are already expecting their first child, with Daniella five months pregnant.
All being well it will make Della one of the most glamorous grandparents ever, having taken ‘bronze’ in Miss World in 1982.
