We are so lucky to work with the most amazing couples for sometimes over two years while we help to create their perfect day, and we absolutely love what we do. Meeting Laura, Ash and their two lovely boys was incredibly special and their day turned out just as expected- stunningly perfect.
Laura and Ash arrived just as we were finishing the new parquet flooring in the Gallery and we were super excited as it was going to get it’s first use during their ceremony. Limelight Wedding Emporium had set up her gorgeous trees and Shindig Event Styling had also been busy dressing the chairs with beautiful dusky pink tulle.
Ash and his Groomsmen were getting ready in the Manor while Laura and her Bride Squad took over the West Wing. Laura really had thought of everything, from the matching silk robes, to the bespoke Bridesmaid boxes to the little star bracelets for her gorgeous flower girls. Laura was absolutely stunning in her delicately embroidered gown and her bouquet was just to die for. The dusky pink theme continued with the bridesmaids’ dresses and the dried flower petal confetti.
Laura’s dad had been tasked with creating copper frames from which hung welcome signs and their seating plan. The barn entrance was framed with more blossom trees and in the courtyard sat the spectacular 1968 Airstream Photobooth from Silver Trailer Photobooth and Belle Studio, who were also the photographers on the day.
Inside the Barn, the tables were dressed with floating candles on rustic tree slice podiums, surrounded with a wreath of eucalyptus and white and pink flowers. Each guest was gifted a little bottle of ‘Sunkissed Shoe-ish’ which was a cocktail created by one of their friends at a party years ago. By sheer luck it tasted great and has been a running joke between them all ever since! Laura had hand made all their name place settings, using corks popped by their parents since Laura and Ash got engaged as stands for name cards, which Laura had spent hour decorating with gold leaf.
Their cake was a masterpiece by the incredibly talented Lorien Storey of Storeybook Cakes. Laura and Ash met Lorien when she first started making cakes becausew their children went to nursery together. Since then, they have had her amazing cakes for every special occasion and they have just kept getting better and better! The wedding cake featured three tiers of perfectly placed gold leaf, blooms and autumnal berries, accompanied with glass boxes of macarons and miniature cakes.
In his speech, Ash thanked his incredible wife Laura for everything she does for him and their two boys, who are so lovely, polite and well mannered. This is truly testament to Laura being such an incredible mum, and now, wife.
We wish them all a lifetime of happiness and want to say a little thank you for letting us be part of your amazing day.
