There were no posed photographs. No bridesmaids, groomsmen, speeches or first dances. Simple and understated was the order of the day.
The all-white ceremony was held under the old oak tree in the Manor House Garden; a beautiful way to start the day. Drinks and canapés were served at The Milk House; a farmstyle bar also situated on the property. After that, lunch was served under the bottle brush tree in the guest house garden. Adorned with simple white flowers and gold Bottega champagne bottles, the long table was a feast for all the senses. Guests wined and dined until late afternoon and then we cut the wedding cake – which had an added surprise. The top tier of the 4-tiered cake was a gender reveal – a big blue slice revealing that a little baby boy will be joining our family in March 2017. Congratulatory hugs were shared amongst tears of joy. When the sun set, the after-party started – more champagne was popped and the celebrations continued well into the early hours. It was a simply dreamy day!
