CUTE COUPLE ALERT!!!
Why did you choose Thornton Manor for your wedding?
We chose Thornton Manor for a number of reasons; firstly the ceiling in the music room reminded us of our first holiday together when we visited the Sistine Chapel, the exit of the music room looks like the wardrobe from beauty and the beast!! Being a huge Disney geek I loved this. The grounds themselves are beautiful and the whole Manor House itself is simply stunning, romantic and perfect.
What are your favourite memories from the whole experience?
When I walked into the ceremony room and saw Gary. In all honestly I don’t remember what the room looked like. The only thing I could see was Gary. Spending the time on our own during the pictures was amazing. Of course the speeches- have one of my oldest friends walk me down the aisle and do a speech is a little unconventional so I was worried about his speech but it was perfect!
Gary said his favourite memory was seeing me walk down the aisle and walking into the music room together passed all of our guests.
What advice would you give anyone planning their own wedding?
Take full advantage of your wedding party, get them making favours and on the day before your wedding turn your phone off and divert all calls to your chief bridesmaid. You don’t want to be stressed out with guests and suppliers calling so get them to call the groom or a bridesmaid! Don’t worry about the small stuff. I had espresso martini split on my dress, my dress strap broke, the cake was wonky, out canapés were wrong and Gary’s pants split! But it was without a doubt the best day of our lives!
