The Spanish wedding venue
Leticia and Barry held their wedding at <a href="http://www.aldoveacatering.com/palaciodealdovea.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Palacio de Alcove</a> in Madrid, where Leticia comes from and where they were living at the time of their wedding.<br /><br />"The venue is an old castle made of stone, with amazing green gardens and a beautiful courtyard," says Leticia.
The colour scheme
They went for an autumnal colour scheme, with touches of burgundy and pink floral table centrepieces.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/essentials/wedding-table-decorations-and-centre-pieces-25-interesting-ways-to-dress-up-your-tables/22128.html" target="_self">READ MORE: Wedding table decorations and centre pieces: 25 interesting ways to dress up your tables</a>
As the night went on, candles were lit all over the venue, for a flickering, magical feel.
The table plan
"We made the table plan ourselves out of old pallets," explains Leticia. "We hung different photo frames for each table, added candles and decorated it with ivy."<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/ideas/diy-and-craft/real-couples-table-plans/19542.html" target="_self">READ MORE: Real couples' table plans</a>

Leticia chose to wear a glorious Pronovias <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/dresses-and-style/wedding-dresses/delightful-wedding-dresses-with-sleeves/18718.html" target="_self">long-sleeved wedding dress</a>.<br /><br />"I felt so happy and comfortable in it the first time I tried it on," says shares. "I was originally looking for something more romantic but I loved the embroidery and the fabric."<br /><br />"By adding the medieval sleeves I was able to turn it into something that made me feel like myself."<br />

The bridesmaids wore <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/dresses-and-style/bridesmaids-flowergirls/12-beautiful-burgundy-bridesmaid-dresses-perfect-for-an-autumn-wedding/22586.html" target="_self">burgundy bridesmaid dresses</a>, handmade by Leticia and Barry's aunty, who is a dressmaker.
Scottish wedding outfit
Barry embraced his Scottish roots, choosing to wear a kilt on his wedding day.
Advice for other couples
"We were told that the bride and groom are never together on their wedding day, so we tried our best to be together all the time and even managed to have half an hour for ourselves," shares Leticia.
The best wedding idea
"We made photo boxes that we put on every table with old pictures with our family and friends who were sitting at that table," says Leticia. <br /><br />"When people saw them, they could have a look through and get speaking whilst remembering good old times. It worked perfectly!"
