The wedding of
Ben and Jane
Real Life Wedding at Lainston House
Tell us a little about how you met and the proposal...
We both met online and being on Bumble, it means that Jane made the first move... However, the proposal in Paris was totally magical and Ben popped the question one evening after dinner! We both love Paris and it will always hold such fond memories for us.
What do you remember most about the day itself?
Honestly, the weather and the staff. The weather was gorgeous and of course meant that we could get married outside.
The staff on the build up to the wedding and on the wedding day itself were nothing short of amazing. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and we were so taken care of at every single part of the day. The staff really did make the wedding and we can’t thank Sophie, Lewis and Roberto enough in particular for all of their amazing and hard work.
Were there any special moments or surprises?
As small as it sounds, we didn’t realise that the big barn doors in the Dawley Barn could be opened throughout the duration of the wedding breakfast and we were delighted that they could be! We had them open the whole time and it really brought the outside in.
I stayed the night before with 5 bridesmaids and we were all so shocked and surprised by just how amazing the rooms were (Silverhorn and Olive). We honestly felt like royalty and were treated so well by the staff on the morning.
What tips or advice would you give to future couples?
It’s good to have ideas and concepts in mind, but be open in working with the venue and listen to what works well. There are always so many options and who else is better at providing great hints and tips than the staff who are involved with so many weddings?
