On the morning of the wedding, Laura, along with her Maid Of Honour, got ready at The Five Bells in Brabourne. I fell in love with this place when I walked through the door and am now looking for an occasion to book a room there for myself. Its gorgeous!! All of the rooms are pretty special but it’s the one that Laura was getting ready in that I would choose. Check out that bath! When I arrived, having already done her hair, the fabulous Emma Smisson was busy doing Laura’s makeup. Laura got her Benjamin Roberts dress on in another one of the rooms at The Five Bells and it was from there that I then left and made my way to The Secret Garden. John and the lads all looked very dapper in their tweed suits and their children looked super cute in their little outfits complete with matching tweed and very smart braces.
The ceremony took place outside and the weather was nice enough for everyone to enjoy their drinks on the lawn and watch the children play. When it came to the wedding breakfast in the coach house, each table had a picnic basket and one person from each was in charge of unwrapping all of the delights that were inside. I thought this was such a great idea and made a great talking point for all of the guests. The room looked absolutely amazing and was all the more impressive given the fact that Laura made everything herself. She put in so much time before the wedding making all of the details you see…… from the wooden centre pieces, to the invitations, Laura and John did such an amazing job. The vibrant sunflowers worked so perfectly with everything too and Anemone Blue florist, which is actually on site at the venue, were responsible for the beautiful blooms you see.
After the speeches all of the guests gathered back out on the lawn and enjoyed the warm evening before moving through to the marquee for the party. This also looked so pretty and I particularly loved their cute sandcastle cake.
