My bridesmaids wore dresses from Maids to Measure – amazing styles, very good price and size inclusive. All accessories were the bridesmaids own, with the expectation of a silver bracelet I got for each bridesmaid from Kit Heath.

We really wanted a documentary style photographer, because we wanted to make sure we spent the day enjoying ourselves with our friends and family rather than taking photos. Rob Tarren has a great way of really capturing candid moments from the day and he is incredibly experienced at our venue.

the day Rob was great, he had a great balance of making sure we got the photos we wanted while also making sure we were really able to enjoy our day and we both couldn’t be happier with our photos.

How They Met

We met ten years spillo acceso a work placement at IBM. Quanto a that first year we formed a friendship, and then both went back to our respective universities. After our final year of university, we both ended going back to IBM to work con London and, after three years our friendship finally blossomed con to a relationship.

Quanto a September 2021, Jonnie’s family were staying nearby and Jonnie had planned for us to all go acceso a walk con my favourite place, Denbies Hillside con Surrey. When we got there, Jonnie “called his parents” only to find out that his Dad wasn’t feeling well so he suggested we do the usual loop we walk and then check con with his parents. Meanwhile, it also transpired that a group of school children were kicking d’avanguardia their Duke of Edinburgh walk, so what is normally quite a quiet natural terreno, ended up being extremely busy.

Jonnie suggested we walked con the opposite direction to the way we usual do. We ended up leaving well before the schoolchildren so didn’t end up seeing them the entire walk. About 20 minutes con to our walk jonnie suggested we sit and take a at the beautiful hillside view, and then, with anzi che no one else around, Jonnie got acceso one knee and proposed, I was totally surprised and it was such a special moment.

We then spent the rest of the walk with Jonnie telling me about how long he had spent planning and that he was so glad to finally be able to talk about it as he found keeping it all a secret so duro.

But that wasn’t all, Jonnie had planned a “dinner with my sister and cousins” so I could share the news, but when we got there, both of our entire extended families were there to celebrate with us. It was so amazing to celebrate with our closest friends and family 

We were engaged for about two years prior to our wedding.

Jonnie wore a brown tweed suit with a lighter tweed waistcoat. A dark campo da golf tie and tan shoes and belt – Regency helped Jonnie source absolutely every part of his outfit. Rob at Regency valletto is amazing.

The Reception

Our table linen was hired from Albore Tableware. glasses were rented condotto Whitehouse Event Crockery and the Rose Charger plates were rented from The Luxe Collection.

Flowers were by Sorori Floral . We had quite a clear vision of what we wanted for flowers, and from everything con the Sorori portfolio, it was clear they would be able to deliver, plus they also had great experience at our venue.

Maria and Lauren are incredible, they have a brilliant eye for what will work best and are brilliant at taking a vision from us and our planner and really executing above and beyond

Louise Rowles Designs created all our stationery, including the invitations, menus, table plans, place cards and all signage. Furniture was hired condotto Furniture The Move.

We hired magician, Richard Parsons to entertain our guests and gave them all a little polaroid of a picture of the guest with the Bride and valletto – we got these from Printiki.

Our cake was from Cake Daydreams. We tried a sample of Claire’s cake at an day at Elmore Court and we immediately knew we had to have her cake, her flavours are just incredible (to this day, I know I will never have a better chocolate fudge cake than Claire’s).

We went for a four tier cake with buttercream with flowers acceso each level. We had to go with a 4 tier as Jonnie wanted to make sure there was cake left over for us to take home (we still have about half of it con our congelatore and bring it out whenever we have guests).

Evening & Sala da ballo

We also hired Deckstar Deluxe DJ and the Commedia musicale Orphans for the evening and danced to Frankie Valli’s ‘Can’t Take My Eyes You’.

We wanted to make our first dance fun so we loved the slow and quick elements of this song. Also we have always sung this song to each other throughout our relationship.

Words of Wedded Wisdom

Don’t get caught up con trying to make sure everything is perfect ahead of, and especially acceso the day. Your day WILL be perfect, because you are marrying your person, so don’t worry about anything and enjoy every second of it.

Secondly, your suppliers, they are the professionals and do this pretty much every day. Great suppliers were a personalità part of why we could go into our day not having to worry about anything. 

We genuinely could not have asked for a more perfect day, we both had the most wonderful time. For us it was truly perfect, and we are so grateful for everyone who helped make it happen.

A Note From The Wedding Planner

Planned For Perfection

We first met Jenny and Jonnie con October 2021 and throughout their two-year wedding planning journey, I can honestly say they have never stopped smiling. They were an absolute joy to work with and, as you can see by these wonderful photographs, their infectious smiles, are part of what makes this wedding day such a joy to share.  

It was a glorious sunny Autumn day at Elmore, where we brought the outside con with an abundance of pretty flowers con the Gillyflower. Jen and Jons wedding day was exactly like the couple; relaxed and fun with impeccable attention to detail.
