How long have you been together? Eight years.
Why did you choose Abbeywood for your wedding? We chose Abbeywood because it’s a beautiful venue which offers so many choices for your wedding ceremony and it’s amazing gardens. Abbeywood is also local to us.
Tell me about your outfits and accessories - what did you love about them? : I wanted a dress with a difference, nothing traditional and very glitzy, which is just what I love. My hair accessory was hand made to match and my necklace and earrings were from Ted Baker - along with my shoes - chosen because of the colours. Ted Baker uses a lot of rose gold which tied in lovely with my dress.
Paul’s suit and shirt was also from Ted Baker.
What made you choose your decor and styling? Tell me about your flowers/florist: Our peacock theme was chosen by myself (Mandy). I wanted a different theme from the usual choices as again I love different and wanted ‘Elegant’. All the displays/decor and bouquet were made by myself and the venue decorated by myself with my two eldest daughters.
What was your first dance song and why? Our first dance was by Ellie Goulding ‘How long will I love you ‘, a lovely tune and words.
Did you have any entertainment? : A pianist played as we entered the ceremony, during the signing of register and on our way out of the ceremony. He then went onto play throughout our welcome drinks, canapés and wedding breakfast.
What was your favourite part of the day and why: ALL of it, it was just perfect and relaxed as planned.
What was it like working with Louise Jacob Photography? Lou is amazing, after researching and reading about photographers for weddings we contacted approximately 8, and for many reasons Lou stood out. She always contacted us promptly, even though we never met prior to our wedding day I felt I had known her for years, such a lovely lovely lady!
We loved the way Lou does a lot of natural shots, this way the guests were at ease, as well Lou shot the selected guests in posed photos too. Lou exceded our expectations and will certainly be recommending her.
Do you have any tips for future brides and grooms? Make it just the way you want it!
It’s your special day and don’t let anyone influence your decisions!
