Love Stories

Alex had always had a clear vision of what her wedding day would be, even from a young age. Those nights spent dreaming about her ‘big day’ as a young girl meant that Alex and Jordan were able to create their perfect wedding day, and the team at Hornington Manor were honoured to be a part of it.

The story of Alex and Jordan starts as childhood sweethearts having met over 17 years ago. Even at the tender age of 13, Alex knew that she would marry Jordan. They have grown up together and followed their dreams together and it is clear for all to see the special bond they share.

The choice of a wedding on the 22nd came through a shared love of all things Christmas. Despite everything else to worry about (like planning a wedding) a short holiday to Lapland, just two weeks before they were due to get married, was in order. Just how Christmassy can a wedding be though? All you need to do is look at the reindeer-named tables (the top table was Santa Claus), the Christmas-themed table decorations with crackers, and know that the first dance was to Mariah Carey’s Christmas classic, ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’

Whilst the pandemic has taken so many things away from so many people, nothing was going to ruin the day for Alex and Jordan. The smiles on their faces and that of their family and friends were enough to brighten the grey December day.







Everyone at Hornington Manor was delighted to be part of Alex and Jordan’s wedding and we wish them a lifetime of happiness together, as well as many more amazing Christmas’ together.
