A sweet shop and balloon release kept guests at this couple’s wedding entertained.

Holly Loft and James Lester were married at the Queen’s Hotel, in Southsea, and held their reception at the same venue.

The couple, from Warsash, were introduced by James’s sister Gemma.

James, 22, and Holly, 24, planned the wedding themselves.

Younger guests enjoyed the sweet shop, bouncy castle and games.

Holly’s bridesmaids were her good friends Becky and Elle and the best man was James’s younger brother, George.

Holly and James spent their honeymoon in London and will travel to Florida next year.
