A fairytale wedding at Hampton Manor in Arden

A fairytale wedding at Hampton Manor in Arden


Written by Katie Byrne


Victoria and Benjamin said 'I do' in an elegant celebration, infused with pops of pink

 

 

Victoria Evans, 25, an interior designer, and Benjamin Gimson, 26, a company director, married at St Mary & St Bartholemew Church, followed by a reception at Hampton Manor, both based in Arden. 

  

Budget: £45,000-£50,000 

We went for a soft and romantic peachy cream palette with an elegant, vintage twist, as I wanted a look that was timeless. 

 

My flowers were predominantly David Austin roses, hydrangeas and eucalyptus as I love the wild feel all of these flowers possess and their romantic, muted colours. 

 

During the church ceremony we had a beautiful choir singing along with an organist. We had an amazing string quartet playing throughout the reception and wedding breakfast; they played a mixture of classical and contemporary music.

 

Our cake was five tiers – each had a different flavour to cater for everyone! We had a Victoria sponge as the largest, chocolate, lemon drizzle, carrot cake and fruit as the smallest. 

 

I bought lots of white flip flops in different sizes to fit everyone with a sign saying “A little treat for your dancing feet”. We also bought pashminas for our guests to wear during our firework display.

Plus, we bought a Kodak Instax camera with loads of films so that guests could take a cheeky selfie and stick it into our guest book. 

My tip for brides-to-be: Be organised! Also, use your instinct when it comes to suppliers and you will thank yourself for it on the morning of the wedding when you feel calm and in safe hands. 

 

Steal their style!
