What were your wedding theme/colours? The theme was diamonds and pearls, and the colour was cobalt blue.
We chose our venue because… Great Hallingbury Manor was the first venue we went to visit and really liked it, and in close proximity to the church. It had everything we were looking for – the price, atmosphere, and amazing service all around! Our guests were really happy.
What was your dress like? Ivory with diamond and pearl detailing with a fairly long train.
What was your favourite part of the wedding? Enjoying the sun outside the church and at the reception.
What was the song for the first dance? God Only Knows by The Beach Boys
What is your advice for other brides? Make sure you spend some time alone, step back and take time to remember your special day!
