Emma and Daniel celebrated their nuptials in a stylish & quintessentially English countryside wedding…
“Danny proposed on our 10 year anniversary while we were in Mexico. As obvious as it seemed to be to everyone else it really was a huge surprise. He had planned a table for two at the end of a jetty and it was perfect!
The first thing we did to plan the wedding was book the venue. Meols Hall had always been our favourite choice and the Tithe Barn was exactly what we had pictured. The fact that it was so local made it even more special. They were absolutely brilliant with us from day one and we couldn’t have asked for more. When it was time to look for the dress, Mum and I set out to look for what I had in mind and we quickly came to realise it didn’t seem to exist! Mum has always been amazing at sewing, so she decided to make the dress. She also lovingly made me a handbag to match with our names and wedding date stitched inside.
We didn’t have a wedding planner but I can honestly say it was a huge team effort; our family and friends helped massively and I couldn’t have done it without my Mum, Danny’s Mum, Vikki, Abbie, Lewis, Becci and Phil. We handmade a lot of the décor and my Mum also made our gorgeous four tiered fruit cake with fresh flowers. To compliment the airy, natural feel of our décor, my Mum’s best friend Helen made beautiful bouquets with white and green blooms. Along with eucalyptus, roses and freesias I had Veronicas in my bouquet. That’s the name of my late Nan so it had extra special meaning.
One of the best moments was when we pulled up to the reception in our wedding car with everyone clapping and cheering. I will never forget walking into the Tithe Barn as it was decorated to perfection. The food was amazing and we had a fantastic band from Manchester called The Essentials. Our honeymoon was two weeks of paradise in Mauritius and we couldn’t have asked for anything better to continue our celebration!” –Emma
