FRIDAY!!! Lovelies, I have to confess I wrote this yesterday because I’m at A WEDDING!! My lovely sister in law is about to get a HUSBAND – in about two hours time – so I’m all bridesmaided-up and heading to the church as this is published!! There’ll maybe be real life wedding stuff on my Insta later (or possibly real life tipsy stuff, which might be equally entertaining!) so if you’re not already following @englishwedding on Instagram, today’s probably a good day to start!
I wouldn’t leave the blog empty for you though, oh no – and happily I have an absolutely stunning wedding to share with you, submitted by lovely Hannah at Casey Avenue. Laura and Josh were married at The Lost Orangery, a stunning venue tucked away in rural Wiltshire. I love how this place is almost hidden from the mainstream wedding industry – it’s a self-catering, super luxurious, exclusive use wedding venue with a beautiful cloister, archway, portico, boat house, orangery and ballroom to call your own. You’ll find it on www.uniquehomestays.com where it’s described as an “exclusive manor house in Wiltshire is a spectacular wedding venue certain to impress wedding guests by exuding a special blend of grandeur, heart and soul” – which sleeps 4, with room for 250 wedding guests and carriages at midnight!
Hannah told me Laura and Josh’s wedding felt like it was in the Mediterranean. “Laura chose a low back stunning elegant gown by Martina Liana and the men wore Tuxedos. Laura broke the mold with black Jimmy Choo shoes. Their ceremony was held by the boathouse and we even had them out on the water on the row boat for some portraits. The Lost Orangery room looked stunning, with a collection of beautiful florals, bamboo plates and gorgeous graphic designed menus. Having hired out the venue for the weekend, they bought and stocked a mid-century sideboard for the bar and had a selfie arch which was lit by a huge stunning chandelier.
