Whilst you are dreaming of spicy, hot chocolate drinks, warm blankets and open fires (aren’t we all this time of year), take a few minutes to have a look at some of the weddings that have melted our hearts this month.
Just look at these wonderful images, courtesy of Martyn Norsworthy, of the classically styled wedding of Alex & Richard. We particularly love the moments snapped in our walled garden and at the back of the Barn. And the hints of blue in the floral displays and the bridesmaids, adds a real splash of summer.
We are so glad you are back here again to sift through the delights that we have found on our favourite bridal blogs lately. We have met some incredible couples this year; all of whom have brought bags of personality and character to their wedding day.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce you to Daisy and Oliver, who were married at the beginning of July. Theirs is, by far, the biggest wedding we have hosted with 200 guests. And we think the table layout worked really well to accommodate such a size, without losing that intimate feel. Photographer Emma Solley, has created some outstanding imagery and our good friend, Joanna Game, has done it again with her stunning floral creations.
Our Great and Good post this month is dedicated to brides. Those that we meet and the ones that we ‘Ooh and Aah’ over, on the pages on our favourite bridal blogs. It’s all about the gowns, the accessories, the make-up, the hair and the moments captured when girl meets boy (or girl) and they fall in love all over again.
The preparation and planning of a wedding, and more so, the wedding day itself, is full of traditions. Passed down from generation to generation; some worldwide, some personal, family traditions. Things like not seeing the bride before the ceremony, the giving and receiving of rings, receiving lines and of course, the wedding favour.
Our blog post this month is dedicated to special moments. Weddings are full of them (obvs!) so we want to celebrate, not just the first looks, first kisses and first dances, but the funny, spine-tingly, heart-fuzzying, smile-making intimate moments. Enjoy!
Catering for your wedding guests can be a delicious but stressful minefield. Deciding on whether to serve a three-course wedding breakfast or a belt-busting all-you-can-eat buffet is only half the quandary. Depending on what time of day you get married, can mean the difference between one or two (or sometimes even more) servings of food.
Traditionally, a symbol of fertility and prosperity, with the top tier saved for the christening of a wedded couple’s first born, the humble wedding cake is now a whole lot more then ever before!
