WEDDINGS


DETAILS OF OUR DAY: We got married on Saturday 2nd


June 2012,


the same weekend as the Queen’s Jubilee. With family and friends traveling from far and wide, we thought what better date for a wedding than on a 4-day bank holiday weekend! Our ceremony was held at St John the Baptist Church in Billesdon. Following the service, we travelled to Kelmarsh Hall in an old convertible Morris Minor; the bridal party following in a friend’s VW camper van. Drinks and canapés were served prior to sitting down for a two-course dinner. Later that evening we had a hog roast followed by cheese and biscuits.


THE LITTLE EXTRAS: 5 Minutes


with a BRIDE


Bride: Jacinta Cordwell Groom: John Cordwell


Venue: Kelmarsh Hall and Gardens


At Kelmarsh, we were able to dress the place as we wanted and the staff were amazingly accommodating. We set up a photo booth with props as evening entertainment to allow our friends to take some funny photos. We also set up a sweet counter, and hired some Irish dancers in the evening. Another little extra included a big basket of flips flops (dancing shoes!) for the girls.


FAVOURITE MEMORY OF THE DAY:


One of my favourite memories is walking down the aisle in the church. Another favourite has to be sitting at our table in the ballroom of Kelmarsh, looking around at all our family and friends eating, drinking and enjoying themselves. Tat made all the pressure in the run up to the big day completely worth it.


GETTING MARRIED AT KELMARSH HALL:


Kelmarsh stood head and shoulders above the rest. I still remember that moment I walked into the Great Hall. I stood amazed, it definitely had that wow factor, and I absolutely fell in love with it there and then. I particular liked that it was

ours exclusively for the day, but also that it would be the perfect venue come rain or shine.


Te staff were also amazingly helpful. Jill made us feel comfortable and reassured right from the start and she could not do enough to accommodate our needs. Tis was consistent right through from our first visit until well after our wedding day. She really made us feel that our day was the most special of them all.


FAVOURITE PHOTO:


We were very lucky to have found Nigel Ord-Smith and one of our favourites has to be the one where we’re standing outside the archway.


MY ADVICE TO BRIDES:


Do not be too influenced by other people’s opinions about how things should be on your day. Te biggest thing that I learnt was that you cannot please everyone. Listen to what others have to say, but remember that what is important is that you do what makes you and your husband-to-be happy.
