LIZ AND TOM
A COUNTRY HOUSE TAKEOVER WITH A SPRINKLE OF GLITTER
“Getting married in spring meant that we wanted a really fresh and elegant look for our day, so we chose pale pinks, cream and ivy green with a dash of glitter thrown in!
When it came to our ceremony, there was only one choice – it had to be my childhood church. I used to imagine what it would be like to get married there when I was at school. Two of the hymns we sang were songs I used to sing so it was really special to have that link to the past.
For our reception, we chose the beautiful Nanpantan Hall – we were blown away by its spectacular setting in the Leicestershire countryside. Being an exclusive-use venue, it meant we could really personalise our day.
To add meaning, we named our tables after our favourite holiday destinations,

and our favours were scratch cards from a local charity that we support. We really enjoyed collecting things in the year leading up to the wedding to remind us of all of the wonderful things we had done in the time we were engaged. Our place settings were champagne and prosecco corks collected by our friends and family to bring together all of the celebrations that had gone on in that year!
We were particularly proud of our candle jars – they were coffee jars and we painted the top section with PVA glue and dipped them into glitter – they worked really well! Our cake was also made by Tom’s mum and sister, which was an amazing gift and personal touch.
Our wedding really was the best day of our lives. I was so nervous but when I saw everyone’s faces that melted away.
