To create the wedding of the year using as much of the stunning Euridge estate as possible. Read below how this beautiful couple became lifelong friends through planning their amazing wedding via long distance phone calls late at night to last minute lunches in farmers fields!
From first meeting Holly & Jack, the brief was clear- create a wedding to capture Holly’s Yorkshire heritage while also nodding to Jack’s in Baltimore US. They wanted to treat their guests to a party of a lifetime marrying elements of all that they love in themselves and from their backgrounds, set in the gorgeous surrounds of Euridge Manor. A year of planning commenced…
The wedding of the year- started Friday with a sneak preview for the Bridal & Groom party, guided walk through the surrounding countryside ending in a rehearsal lunch in Euridge’s secluded hunting lodge. Party to follow at the Roman Baths for all the guests.
Saturday, the wedding day arrives- a misty start before a day bathed in Autumnal sunshine, framing a quintessential English wedding in the Cotswolds at Euridge Manor. Their first look and personal vows took place under the chandelier in the gardens followed by a blessing at the Boat House, drinks on the main lawn- hot toddies, fire pits & blankets taking the chill off as the evening set in. Time for the wedding breakfast in the clear roofed marquee with beautiful hanging foliage garlands, softly lit lanterns, long feasting tables with warm autumnal hues of golds and greens- providing a magical setting for a fusion of British & American food interspersed with captivating and heartfelt speeches (with many a tear shed).
Then party time- everyone headed up to the Lost Orangery & terrace where they danced ‘til they dropped, with rest breaks taking in custom drinks, al fresco photobooth fun and ‘Jim’s tuck shop (in loving memory of Holly’s grandfather)’. A beautiful celebration for a beautiful couple!
