The weather couldn't have been better for moving in to Hornington Manor on the Friday afternoon. It was gorgeous sunshine when Sam and Ben arrived to set up the wedding barn, and there after continued, enabling the party to BBQ into the evening and watch the setting sun on the front lawn of the Manor.
On 2nd November we welcomed the wonderful Julia and Rachel from Brides Up North for our luxury open evening. Such a fantastic range of suppliers were showcasing and they arrived to set up in the wedding barn in the afternoon. We see the barn transformed every weekend by our beautiful brides, but on this occasion, the space was filled with everything from flowers, to dresses, to lighting and props, to delicious food.
Joe and Rachael vision for their big day was quaint, English country chic and they transformed the barn with the most beautiful decorations. The flowers, white and pink roses with eucalyptus and gypsophelia, were provided by Racheal’s friend Brogan and her mum, and sat proudly in jam jars and antique silver teapots. Their seating plan, as rustic wooden crate with a different photo frame with each table list, was sat on huge hay bales, and continuing with the rustic theme, a wooden step ladder displayed more beautiful flowers, candles, teapots and photos of Joe and Rachael as children.
Nothing could stop this wedding day from being absolutely fabulous -not even the later part of storm Brian, which tried it's hardest with the gale force winds and the torrential rain. It didn't matter one little bit.
Liz and Simon along with their families decorated the wedding barn with an incredible life size tree adorned with coloured glass candle holders and fairy lights which looked amazing standing in the middle of the glass doors of the wedding barn.
