Kate and Ben’s Wedding
What made you choose Harrowden hall?
I hadn’t really thought about going to look at Harrowden Hall as a wedding venue until my friend suggested it to me. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the venue for us, it is such a beautiful building and the gardens are stunning. I liked the fact that we were able to have so much control over the wedding day, we didn’t have to stick to a ‘set package’ as such. I also liked that the wedding breakfast is held upstairs, and not where you will be having the evening reception as I didn’t want guests to be waiting around for the evening reception to start, whilst the room was being changed over; we had been guests at other weddings where this had happened and was something we did not want. Sue, the wedding coordinator, also made us choose Harrowden Hall; I could tell from our first meeting that nothing would be too much trouble and she was so kind and friendly.
How would you sum up your wedding at Harrowden hall?
It was the best day of my whole life. On my wedding day, I did not feel stressed at all and I put this down to the fantastic planning and organisation both before and on the day of the wedding, by Sue, Natalie and all the staff at Harrowden Hall. Everything was exactly what I’d dreamed of and more!
Was there theme at your wedding?
Not particularly, although I had in my head I wanted it to be a bit like an English country fete. We had an ice cream cart and garden games to give it this feel.
Please tell us about
Your dresses – my dress was the first dress I tried on. I loved it because it had a pearl and bead attachment to the back which was so unique. It was a Ronald Joyce dress. My bridesmaids wore coral dresses from Dessy, as it suited them all.
Your flowers – my florist was my friends mum, Judy Weston. All of the flowers were a mixture of coral roses, daisies and lavender.
Your cake – my grandmother made my wedding cake, I choose all the design myself and she did a fabulous job!
Your photographer – we had Paul Mockford as our wedding photographer and I can sum his photos up in one word, AMAZING!!
