LIZ AND TOM

A COUN­TRY HOUSE TAKEOVER WITH A SPRIN­KLE OF GLIT­TER

Perfect Wedding Magazine - - Wedding Crashers -

“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.
