The wedding breakfast was held at the Gatehouse at Kirkstall Abbey. The couple picked this historic venue as it was the perfect size for their small wedding party, and would look great in the photos. It was also interesting for the foreign guests to explore!
Sarah and Mervin wanted their wedding to be traditional and elegant, and planned to include French and Mauritian touches, in honour of Mervin’s heritage, amongst the traditional English parts.
The bride’s sister, who was the only bridesmaid, made the table plan and wrote out the place cards as she is a teacher ‘with lovely handwriting’! Each of the tables were numbered, but they were marked with traditional French house numbers for a creative twist.
