Heather & Daniel’s Real Wedding

Eighteen months after falling for one another playing tennis, Dan proposed to Heather during a snowy weekend break to New York.  They chose the engagement ring together at Bernstones in Hatton Garden and on July 2nd, 2011, Heather and Dan tied the knot in front of their one hundred and forty-two guests at the stunning Down Hall Country House Hotel based in Essex.


The Wonderful Wedding Cake

Made by Heather’s talented Auntie, the traditional four-tier wedding cake was offered as a separate dessert and featured fruit, plain sponge and chocolate layers.  The 200 evening guests all enjoyed a buffet reception before watching Heather and Dan dance their first dance to Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together.  With the day nearly complete, all that was left was music from ‘The Amberlights’, found on Affordaband.com.  The band was a huge hit with the wedding party and had every guest (almost without exception) up and dancing until late into the night.


The impeccable organisation and helpful service of all the staff at Down Hall resulted in a stress free run up to the wedding, leaving both Heather and Dan to concentrate on the more exciting things related to wedding planning, including arranging their luxurious safari and beach honeymoon to Kenya and Zanzibar.
