The wedding of
Rosie & Adam
Real Life Weddings at The Manor House
How did you both meet and how did the proposal occur?
Adam and I met through work in 2013. He proposed in Cornwall between lockdowns in 2020 at a beautifully remote spot within St Nectan’s Glen. We had visited the Manor House the year before, for my birthday and Adam had suggested picking up a brochure for weddings but I had told him that he had missed the important step of proposing!
What did you love most about The Manor House?
It’s very hard to pick what we loved most about the Manor House, the hotel and the scenery are stunning and you immediately feel at home as you drive through the gates. The welcoming, attentive and hard working staff are a real asset to the hotel and all of our guests mentioned how fantastic they all were.
Did you have a theme or a particular style for your day?
We were very fortunate to have Kirsten Butler (The Wedding Helper) who styled our wedding. We asked for a hint of festivity whilst complimenting our shades of green colour scheme which was achieved perfectly on the day. We hired the fairy light canopy and fairy light backdrop from Cahoots events and this created a really festive feel to the Dunstanville suite in addition to the lovely Christmas tree that the Manor House already had up!
Tell us all about THE dress…..
My dress was by Tal Kedem an Israeli based designer which isn’t usually stocked in the gorgeous Lace & Grace Bridal boutique in Keynsham. It just so happened that the week I had an appointment, Tal Kedem was doing a trunk show and they were the only store in the UK to exclusively host this particular collection. It felt like it was meant to be! I loved all of the embellishments on the bodice and the pearls amongst the tulle of the skirt.
Were there any special moments or surprises on the big day?
We surprised our guests with a live event artist who painted our immediate family throughout the day. My grandmother was unfortunately in hospital and unable to make our special day, so Lucy the artist painted her from a photograph and even put her in the outfit she had planned for our wedding. It was such a special touch and the painting was a real talking point of the wedding.
