SUBTLE YET DREAMY DETAILS...

“Emma and James were married here at the Pumping House on Friday 4th January. We first met the couple back in Spring 2018, their love for each other and their families was so clear and naturally, was the centre of their day.

Emma arrived on Thursday with her Mum, relaxed and excited. Our Bride had purchased many of their table decorations (including the fabulous grey tablecloths) from H&M home. The decorations were further complimented by the most-subtle yet dreamy details such as leather ties around the napkins and beautifully printed menu cards. Emma stayed that night in our Mulberry Suite and we closed the doors to our venue knowing that the following day was going to be one to remember…”

A LOVE FOR BRITISH WILDFLOWERS...

“The day of the wedding was a crisp, January morning, our beautiful Bride was preparing for her day in the Bridal Suite, assisted by the incredible Amy George Make-Up Artist. Just as we thought the room dressing couldn’t get any better, the lovely Tracey from Campbells Flowers arrived. Emma was keen to show a combination of her love of British wildflowers and her South African heritage and of course the ladies at Campbells Flowers delivered! The colours were something we had never seen before together and were so refreshing to see for a winter wedding! To accompany the stunning table flowers, Tracey had fashioned a hanging flower bomb to sit over the top table. Next to arrive was Henry Lowther, so lovely and a photographer we had worked with before and has always been one of favourites.”

A RELAXED DRINKS RECEPTION...

“As the guests began to take their seats in the Ollerton Room, Emma arrived into our Bridal Boutique looking simply stunning in her Charlie Brear gown. The ceremony was personal and full of romance, friends and family read readings chosen by the couple and the Buzztones (an acapella group the Groom was a part of – cool right?!) sang throughout the signing of the register. Whilst Henry took the Bride and Groom off for their woodland shots, their guests enjoyed a relaxed drinks reception complete with a self-serve gin bar and acapella music. “

A SCRUMPTIOUS TAPAS MENU...

“For the wedding breakfast, Emma & James opted for a tapas menu by our incredibly talented in-house caterers – Gail Dandy Catering. Starters were anti-pasti boards filled with a selection of breads, cheese, meat and olives and their main course included meatballs, garlic and chilli prawns plus some incredible vegetarian dishes for their vegetarian and vegan friends! Guests finished their meal with a tempting choice between Tiramisu and Lemon Sorbet. As the Best Man put down the microphone following his speech, the evening reception began with music from our in-house DJ and a pizza menu catered for by Gail Dandy Catering.”
