Couple and guests were able to ‘party till the cows come home’ in a cattle-themed wedding.

Fourstones residents 35-year-old Stephen Armstrong and 40-year-old Shona Morton first met on the Tinder dating site in 2015 and never looked back as their relationship evolved.

Four years later, Stephen decided it was time to make Shona his wife and asked their daughter for help.

“It was on Christmas Day in 2019 when Stephen proposed,” Shona, a solicitor, said.

“He got our daughter Rose to help deliver the ring with him.”

From then, the couple began to plan their stag and hen do.

Shona said: “I enjoyed my hen do at Ladies Day Nottingham racecourse with my friends, whereas

Stephen, been a farmer, went to a tractor pulling championship Aberdeen for his stag.”

On July 30 the pair were finally able to enjoy their big day with friends and family.

“Our wedding was at Warden Church, I arrived in an Aston Martin Lagonda 1935, and Stephen arrived in a Morgan,” Shona recalls.

“I walked down the aisle in front of our 106 guests with my bridesmaids; my best friend Hannah Young, and my niece Elsa Adams along with my flower girls; Annie Armstrong, 3-year-old Stephens cousin’s daughter and our 3-year-old daughter Rose Armstrong.

“Waiting at the altar with Stephen was best man; twin brother William Armstrong, My nephew and page boys, 4-year-old Oliver Salvage and Charlie Armstrong with our son 2-year-old Alec Armstrong.”

After the wedding, the couple plus 40 evening guests were able to enjoy a unique themed reception at East Fourstones farm.

“The wedding reception theme was cattle farming,” Stephen laughs.

“So we had table names which were different cattle breeds, and our favours were shot glasses saying ‘party until the cows come home’.

“Additionally, still going with the theme, our wedding dinner was our homegrown beef.

“After dinner, we enjoyed our wedding cake from Waitrose, a plain white iced; three tiers: vanilla, fruit and chocolate.”

A few hours later, the couple made their way to the dance floor for their first dance to 17, going under by Sam Fender.

The couple then invited guests to join them as they enjoyed the Minogue Brothers band following a disco at the end.

Reflecting on their big day, Shona thinks about what moment stood out for her.

She said: “Our favourite moment from the day was walking out of the church married.

“After the wedding, we enjoyed a lovely honeymoon in Scotland.”
