The wedding celebrations continued with a reception at Orchardleigh House in Somerset. The newlyweds arrived in a luxurious silver Rolls Royce Phantom.
Vanessa and Derek loved Orchardleigh House as it was a grand manor house in the country that had room for all their guests to stay – this was important to them, and they didn’t want to share space with people they didn’t know at a hotel.
The venue was decorated tastefully with a black, dark grey and cream colour scheme with lots of bright pops of colour. They wanted a fun but elegant colour scheme that wasn’t too girly.
Vanessa found the staff at Orchardleigh House to be extremely helpful, and the food at the wedding breakfast was amazing! The three course meal reflected their tastes, with Vanessa picking the starter, Derek choosing the main, whilst dessert was a buffet of both their favourites.
