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 Cake

Charlotte and Matthew had a 3 tier wedding cake with cascading dark blue and ivory flowers and a blue ribbon around the base of each tier. The filling was alternating vanilla sponge and chocolate sponge and the cake was served for dessert at the evening buffet so that everyone got to try a piece.  A Lego bride and groom were used as the cake topper, and they also featured on the save the date card which had been sent out several months in advance.


Charlotte and Matthew danced their first dance to ‘Stuck on You’ by Lionel Ritchie and even though they went over their budget by almost £3000 they both said that it was worth every penny. Charlotte and Matthew described their day as ‘perfect’ and when asked if they had any tips or advice to give other wedding planning couples they simply said ‘Enjoy it, it goes by so quickly!!!’.
