Claire & Garry’s Real Wedding

Claire and Garry spent two years planning their perfect wedding and found that this length of time was less stressful and far better for saving money. They booked Ardencote Manor and celebrated their ceremony with 70 guests before being joined by a further 50 friends.  The couple danced their first dance to a romantic tune by Leona Lewis, spent their honeymoon in Santorini and were under budget at the end of their planning.


Coral Coloured Bridesmaids

Claire chose three bridesmaids – her best friend who she’s known since the age of 3, Rachel, Sarah – Rachel’s sister and Sophie, Garry’s sister. Their coral coloured floor length gowns came from the shame shop where Claire had bought her own wedding dress, Eternal Bride in Warwick.


The bridesmaids dresses had been designed by Jasmine and the staff were hugely supportive throughout the whole process.  The mother of the bride even purchased her own outfit from there!

Claire had chosen the bridesmaids dresses initially, but then took her best girls over to the shop to make sure that they all felt comfortable in what they would be wearing.  Everyone looked incredible on the day and the striking colour looked sensational as everyone walked down the aisle.
