An intimate Wedding...union of cultures
We wanted an intimate wedding using various components of our day to mix both British and Mexican culture. Arley Hall provided a stunning location with intricate architecture and heritage, beautifully manicured gardens for the all important post ceremony photos and also a wedding management team with the openness and flexibility to allow us to bring in important elements to our day to really celebrate our union of two cultures.Sent on 10/02/2020
From all the guests arriving in a vintage Routemaster bus, to live Mariachi music, Mexican candies and a (second) wedding cake made of British cheeses, nothing was ever too much to ask from the team at Arley Hall. We wanted to use our day to push boundaries, like all same sex unions do, and all the employees at Arley Hall embraced the challenge with vigour!
The management of the day definitely required lots of work behind the scenes, but felt effortless for both of us and all the guests which allowed us to relax, celebrate and form bonds across both sides of the family that will surely last a life time.
