Charlotte & Matthew’s Real Wedding

Charlotte and Matthew described their spring wedding as joyful, elegant and fun.  They had a civil ceremony at the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa in Berkshire with 100 of their closest friends and family and then partied the night away with a further 40 wedding guests.   They headed off to the romantic city of Rome two days after their wedding for a lovely city break and to spend some quality time as a newlywed couple.


The Wedding Venue

Charlotte and Matthew looked at 6 different wedding venues before setting their hearts on the Macdonald Berystede Hotel in Ascot, Berkshire. The hotel provided a wedding coordinator who was very helpful and could not have done enough to ensure that the planning and big day ran smoothly from start to finish.


Charlotte and Matthew opted for a civil ceremony which took place at 2pm on Saturday 6th March 2010.  Charlotte’s father walked her down the aisle to ‘The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ by Handel, and 2 friends of the family had been asked to do a reading each during the ceremony.
