Megan Bekdache, 30, married Jason Long, 30, at The Goods Shed in the East Anglian Railway Museum, Essex MEGAN SAYS ‘Jason and I are both very proud of our heritage; he’s from a Jewish family and my family is Lebanese, and we wanted our wedding to bring together both our worlds.
We had a humanist ceremony and our day included English, Jewish and Arabic traditions (a white gown; smashing the glass; sugared almonds in bags with Arabic good-luck charms). We also wrote our own vows, centred around equality and friendship.

When Jason promised to make all our decisions together, “From what to have for dinner to how to raise our children,” the whole room was choked up! We didn’t want a sit-down meal, so we had pizza trucks, and cheese instead of a cake. To match our venue, we had a vintage travel theme, with a mini railway ride for guests during the cocktail hour!’ MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT ‘Smashing the glass towards the end of the ceremony was a real highlight.’
