Joanna and Mathew – A Spring Wonderland
Joanna and Mathew met as many couples often do – through work – and became a couple within the month. From then on they were inseparable, getting engaged four years later on a morning stroll through Wychwood Forest.
The pair really wanted the wedding to be in Spring; the fresh bright days and pastel colours complemented their vision perfectly (plus it’s Joanna’s birthday in April – the perfect present, don’t you think?).
After browsing Guides for Brides and doing plenty of research, Joanna and Mathew decided on Merriscourt as their wedding venue. Their ceremony took place in the Stone Barn (one of 3 rustic interlinking barns at Merriscourt) before it was transformed into the perfect space for dancing after dinner.
On the day, Joanna wore a Suzanne Neville gown from Ellie Sanderson Bridal Boutique – the floating organza silk skirt made her feel so special. Just a shame you only get to wear it once!
After a beautiful ceremony and wedding breakfast surrounded by friends and family, the party hit the dancefloor with the live band Uproar, plus a photobooth provided by Giggling Genie.The couple jetted off on the Monday following the wedding to spend a week honeymooning in sunny Barbados – a birthday to top all birthdays!
Favourite part of the day: Joanna – listening to the speeches. Mathew – when the speeches were over!
