When it comes to choosing a wedding venue, there’s nothing quite like seeing photos of a real wedding to get your juices flowing. Not only does it give you a glimpse into the possibility of what your own big day could look like, but it also gives you the chance to take a few ideas to make your very own too. So, for a little wedding inspiration and to show you just how beautiful our manor house could look on your special day, we thought we’d share a wonderful day with you.
Introducing Anneke and Phil who chose That Amazing Place as the location for their big day. The real icing on the cake was the fact that they brought along their beloved dog Henry to not only enjoy the day with them, but take part in the ceremony itself. He was even on the wedding cake!
Anneke and Phil were one of the very first couples to get married here at what was originally a 15th century monastery. Its subsequent transformation into the elegant, contemporary venue that it is today, no doubt swung their decision when they first came to visit.
The now boutique B&B and exclusive wedding venue offers ceremonies in a choice of stunning rooms, all dependant on the size of your wedding party. In the case of Anneke and Phil, they’d already said their official “I do’s” in a very personal and private ceremony the day before. This meant they were wanting to enjoy a civil ceremony within the beautiful landscaped gardens, more specifically under the large tree. With Phil being a police officer, a police theme became evident with a fabulously vintage police car-come wedding carriage as well as the sound of police sirens in the distance to announce the arrival of the blushing bride. Phil even wore his uniform, freshly dry cleaned and pressed of course while Anneke tied her bouquet with a black and white ribbon. The light-hearted feel of the wedding was continued with the couple’s choice of a photo booth along with props for their guests to enjoy and subsequently upload to a shared wedding app for everyone to see.
Their memories were made even more permanent with the help of a fantastic photographer (Light Source Weddings) who took the wedding couple underneath the weeping willow tree that overhangs a picturesque brook at the bottom of That Amazing Place’s gardens. During the happy couple’s photo shoot, guests were left to enjoy the summer sunshine while Harry, the couples pet dog was lavishing the attention from the guests while they threw his tennis ball back and forth. It was quite simply, a picture of perfect happiness on a truly exquisite day. From here, the cake cutting and first dance then took place, moving into the lounge of course, where guests were free to dance and celebrate until midnight when use of our 12 deluxe bedrooms were then enjoyed.
