Rebecca + Edward – Marquee wedding

Posted on by Marie

As we drove towards the wedding venue we could see St Peters Church, in Stoke on tern which is stunning and set in gorgeous countryside. Much to our surprise you could literally throw a stone from the church onto the field where the marquee was. It was really cool to be able to have church wedding and walk across the road to the reception. Extremely good planning Rebecca and Edward. Their wedding was very relaxed with Rebecca being a very relaxed bride, they make a lovely couple and I hope they have an amazing future together xx

Here is their story as wrtten by Rebecca

We first met through work, when I was a Farm Liaison at Muller Dairy and Ed a Muller Producer and I did some work for them. It kindled from there really.

The proposal – Ed proposed very romantically in Venice last year when we were on a cruise. He got down on one knee in a very expensive coffee shop after his gondola ride was cancelled due to the weather. Much to his dismay as it ruined all his plans.

Our wedding vision is to be a traditional countryside wedding filled with lots of love and laughter.

Elin + Darren – Plas Isaf

Posted on by Marie

Here is Elin and Darren’s story…

How we met – back in July 2009 out having a sneaky pint with my best friend (bridesmaid) Rachel bumped into Darren and agreed to go on a date … Rest is history….

Proposal…. The most unimaginative and unromantic proposal back in September 2014. I was on my was out to One Republic gig with Rachel. Darren came in from work to see a parcel had arrived for him. It was the ring – he opened the parcel and handed me the box. Little did he know i had already opened the packet and knew it was coming!!

Dawn + Darryl – Pentrehobyn Hall

Posted on by Marie

Dawn and Darryl were married in Pentrehobyn Hall a new venue for me. There are two parts to the venue a gorgous hall with beautiful gardens and a smaller venue called the coach house with its on privae garden. It’s the prefect venue to put your own stamp on your wedding, a lovely hidden gem.

I always ask the bride and groom to supply me with a story of how they met and their wedding plans. I love reading them and I know you do to as lot’s have mentioned it to me. This is one if my favourites…

How you met- Unfortunately our love story began in Rhyl!! After love at first sight, he visited me in university at Manchester and I seduced him with a pint of red wine, after that he was mine forever!

The proposal- After waiting a LONG 7yrs for a proposal, we went on an amazing holiday to Thailand, where he saved it until the very last night, left me alone with a map to find him on the beach where we watched the sun go down with tealights, flowers, prosecco and an italian picnic, before walking along the water and he proposed! Hooray!!

Wedding vision- FUN, FUN, FUN, fuelled with a lot of food, and plenty of tasty drinks! Eat, Drink, Get Married – 3 aims of the day 😀

Nikki + Oli – Tower Hill Barns

Posted on by Marie

Nikki and Oli live in an amazing house which is currently Oli’s DIY project. I must say Oli you’re doing a great job and the bathroom is looking great!

The day started in their house where the lovely Nicky at Paint me Beautiful was doing the brides make-up after three shades of pink lippy Nikki settled on the first one (a girl after my own heart)!
The morning was full of giggles and Nikki’s parents and bridesmaids were all fantastic in the morning and I even got a lovely cup of tea, thank you!

The car arrived and Nikki like all my brides this year was on time. We arrived at Tower Hill Barns into the sunshine but sadly it had been too wet to get married outdoors. Indoors however under the gorgeous lights and lovely set up Nikki and Oli said ‘I Will’.

The rest of the day went swimmingly and I am not referring to the rain! Everyone had a great time and I think that’s in part to the great family and friends Nikki and Oli have and the fantastic venue in Tower Hill Barns

Jenny + Joe – Marquee wedding

Posted on by Marie

Jenny and Joe got married in the gorgeous at St Hilda’s Church, Bilsborrow, they then went onto Joe’s family run farm for an amazing marquee wedding reception.

The details were exquisite with gorgeous soft colours, beautiful fonts adding a lovely touch to the table cards and signs.

It was probably one of the hottest days I have ever done a wedding on and there was a threat of rain in the evening which never really came. The day could not have gone better. Jenny looked amazing, the air of sophistication. The groomsmen had other ideas on the grown up elegant wedding Jenny had planned by taxing and doing an MOT on a yellow Robin Reliant for Joe, aka Del Boy to his friends, to drive to the church in. Unfortunately their plans were slightly scuppered when it broke down on the way to the church, but luckily there were plenty of cars to take the groom to the church on time!

The ceremony went perfectly and was added to by a lovely all female choir. I always think paying attention to the music for the ceremony can pay dividends.
The reception was fabulous and Jason got to do his favourite wedding photography group shot, lifted up nice and high by a tractor and I got to wave at him safely from the ground!

All the guests were lovely and I want to say a warm thank you to Jenny and Joe’s family for making us so welcome xxx

Bonnie + Tom – Combermere Abbey

Posted on by Marie

Their story

We met at school at the ages of 14 and 15, so we’d already been together 10 years before Tom proposed. I was at university doing nursing and I decided to do my elective nursing placement in a hospice in India, I was away from Tom for 6 weeks and I guess he must have. missed me because when he picked me up from the airport and brought me home he had laid out rose petals and candles all over the house and then got down on one knee when I walked through the door!

For our wedding we wanted a relaxed garden theme with some added glamour!

Food- Olive tree catering
Florist- Red door design
Band- Ashmore acoustics
String quartet- Endymion

Rebecca + James – Carden Park

Posted on by Marie

Rebecca and James – Two peas in a pod

This is their story…

How you met –
We met back in June 2012 online and I think our first conversation was about Anchorman lol. Turns out he knew just as many quotes from the film as I did. For a couple of weeks we just talked for hours on end on the phone, before our first date Friday 6th July at Upstairs At The Grill in Chester.

The proposal –
Was September 6th 2014 around 3pm lol. James has already asked my Dads permission. James proposed at our favourite bar in Ibiza Café Del Mar whilst we sat drinking and talking. I was shaking so much I forgot which hand the ring went on lol.

Wedding vision –
Relaxed day and a chance to have a good catch up with the people closest to us. I think everyone is also looking forward to James dancing as he is a free spirit when he dances  the music just takes him

Michele + Kevin – Doubletree Chester

Posted on by Marie

Michele and Kevin are one of those couples you just know were meant to be. Michele has a beautiful family and I think Kevin is really lucky and probably now has his hands full!
They both put on a fantastic wedding day. The ceremony room in the Double tree Hilton looked amazing with the twinkly lights draped across the ceiling and the candelabras lining the aisle. They had a little flower girl and page boy who were so sweet. As the flower girl threw her petals the page boy thought it was all for him and started playing and jumping in them as they were being thrown, LOVE!

After the ceremony it was off for some canapés and as we were treated to some lovely British weather we also all stayed outside with our drinks for the photos which were perfect.
Hope you enjoy the sneak peek and the full set in 3 weeks xx

Donna + Mark – Chateau Rhianfa

Posted on by Marie

Donna and Mark are a great couple to be around. There were no nerves apart from Donna’s sister who seemed to have taken everybody’s nerves on board! The day started in Chateau Rhianfa where Donna and her bridesmaid Jess were getting ready for the ceremony (Good luck in your exams Jess I am sure you will ace them).

The ceremony was in the most beautiful church St Mary’s and St Nicholas, it has to be one of my all-time favourites. In case anyone is interested in chilies, Jason told me that the chilly shop just around the corner from the church grows one of the hottest chillies you can get! Radom stop in the story sorry!

Some of the bits I have to mention from the ceremony were the reading of St Paul’s to the Corinthians. As you can imaging I have heard it a few times, I even had the passage at my own wedding, it is one of my favourites but never have I heard it read so well and with so much felling behind it, it was lovely. Then there was Jess and her beautiful voice. Jess if you are wondering why your Dad looks a tad miserable in the photos while you are singing it’s because he’s trying to stop himself from crying, the photos are so sweet!

After the ceremony and the drive past the chilly shop we went back to Chateau Rhianfa for canapes a few photos and the party! The day flowed wonderfully and the evening bands were fab. I hope you enjoy the images here and your full set will be out in three weeks xx
