Clare and James – A Classic English Country Wedding
Clare and James met whilst on a trip to New Zealand. James was on holiday whilst Clare was travelling (and hadn’t washed for 6 days!) But that didn’t put James off, and the couple got engaged in February 2016.
They began their search for the perfect English Country Garden wedding, and after deciding to reassess their original ideas and choose elements that were important to them, they chose to marry in Homewood Park, a venue with a special place in their hearts. They had visited the beautiful venue for a spa day 7 years ago (and ate the best bread they’ve ever eaten), so it quickly became an obvious choice for their celebration.
Clare and James adored the classic simplicity of their English country garden theme, with natural white and green flowers and milk churns leading to the garden where they enjoyed drinks and games on the lawn, the spacehoppers being a huge hit with adults and kids alike! The couple really wanted to look after their guests, with flip flops in the girls toilets, a sweet bar with personalised lovehearts, plus colouring books and pencils for the kids.
“You can’t control everything on the day, so just relax and enjoy yourself.”
“Hiring a musician to play during the afternoon drinks was the perfect background to an amazing setting.”
“Get some wedding cake put in your room or away for the next day so you don’t miss out!”
