Oxfordshire Manor Wedding Venue
Lucien proposed at the same place where they first set eyes on each other. As he went down on one knee, an ‘intruder’ passed by, who started clapping when he realised what was happening and then quickly ran away embarrassed!
Proposal done and dusted it was on with the wedding venue hunting! Simple, romantic, classic and intimate. Looking for a quintessential English setting, their focus fell to the Cotswolds. Cornwell Manor was the first place they visited, and they just knew. It manages to combine a beautiful setting with homely grandeur whilst still feeling quite intimate. It was the perfect place for both families to stay. Plus the on site church – St. Peter’s – was just too special to pass over.
Enzoani Wedding Dress
The dress was from Go Bridal in Tunbridge Wells. I fell in love with the dress immediately. It had the perfect combination of being simple, but chic. No glitz or shiny stuff, just beautiful simple lace on the top and a super chic a-line mikado skirt. The back was just breathtaking, with the skirt buttons going all the way down to the train of the dress. Lucien got his suit from Saville Row.
Wedding Day Advice
Get a wedding planner or at least someone to oversee the last weeks and definitely on the day. Best investment ever. Keep it simple and stay strong that it continues to be about you two til the end. The moleskin wedding journal will become your best friend you didn’t know you needed! Make sure you get a lovely photographer that fits with your personalities!
Originally, wedding photography seemed like a steep expense in conjunction with all the other costs. Now we feel it was definitely a worthwhile investment and even more, as time goes by, its value will continue to grow.
We specifically liked how comfortable we felt and how much extra Jonny brought to the day. It was so nice having him there. All our family and friends were singing his praises. Having a Cornwell Manor engagement shoot really was perfect as we are both camera shy. It just made a massive difference on the day to have spent some time with Jonny beforehand. His personality really fitted with ours; so relaxed and a great energy.
Put simply Jonny is lovely to work with and has a very natural documentary style, which we really valued. We wanted the whole feel of the day to be us, without gimmicks. He is just the nicest guy. Thanks Jonny! It wouldn’t have been the same without you!!
