A Champagne-Themed Wedding

This fizz-loving couple enjoyed lots of bubbles at their sunny winter wedding. Leanne and Les met through mutual friends in a local pub in 2012. “We’ve been inseparable since,” says Leanne. Les later proposed once the couple were on the flight to New York. “We love travelling and that we saved up for any First Class flight to New York City,” says Leanne. “I had no idea however when we boarded Les had already spoken to British Airways and every one of the crew and also the pilot was in onto it.”


“One of the crew members kept me busy if you take photos of me, as I only agreed to be so excited to stay in First Class. Little did I know, Les was close to the cockpit at that time, using the rest from the crew, planning the proposal.”

“During our meal, he came and sat opposite me. Then, once the lady arrived with dinner and removed the cloche, rather than my main course she revealed an attractive engagement ring. I was overwhelmed with emotion. I said, ‘Yes’ and also the pilot announced it within the tannoy towards the whole flight! We also reached sit within the cockpit after landing. It was the very best flight ever!”

“It was fate! I always knew I wanted a blush or champagne dress so when I tried on the beautiful champagne ball gown wedding dress I just knew it had been The One. The staff within the online store were amazing and extremely looked after me, my mum and my maid of honour. We also purchased a pretty belt, veil, veil topper and underskirt.” she says. “Later, we had to move our date for the wedding twice because of covid, also it changed from as being a Summer wedding to some Winter wedding.”


The wedding venue was The Compasses at Pattiswick in Essex. “It was the very first venue we had and nothing afterwards lived as much like it,” says Leanne. “It’s an attractive venue but we also booked it for that amazing team there. We just knew they cared and would take care of us, that they did. Our day was perfect.”

“We first booked for that 13th June 2020, then moved it towards the 27th March 2021 and then again towards the 4th December 2021, that was my late father’s birthday. He left us the cash we were using to pay for that wedding, therefore we thought it was a very fitting tribute to him. Again, I think it was fate because the venue in the winter months was stunning. Very rustic with fires burning, so our burgundy theme went perfectly.”


“My mum walked me on the aisle to ‘Stand By Me’ by Florence and also the Machine,” says Leanne. “We wrote our very own promises to each other and had two beautiful readings, read by my buddy and my maid of honour. We then walked out as a couple to ‘You’ve Got the Love’, also by Florence and also the Machine. Luckily, for December, we’d a lovely sunny day. It was cold, but we got some stunning photos outside before it got dark.”


The theme for that day was burgundy and Champagne. “The ceremony was then a yummy afternoon tea combined with some bubbles,” says Leanne. “Les and I toasted with Veuve Clicquot Champagne because this is our favourite.”

“We chose burgundy as my mum had this colour palette for her wedding as well as Les picked this to complement his gorgeous navy suit.”

“Champagne was the primary theme, once we love Champagne. The tables were all different Champagne names, using the top table being Veuve Clicquot.”

“Our wedding cake, cupcakes and favours are intended by a local lady who designed a naked red velvet cake, vanilla and carrot cake cupcakes and Biscoff, there were Oreo truffles as favours.”

“We also had big light-up letters ‘LB heart LB’ as my initials didn’t change and Les shares exactly the same. There was a fab photo booth having a flower wall too, in addition to a magician, Nick Crown, who had been so entertaining.”

“Our DJ was fab and played the very best music to match all of our age ranges and our music tastes perfectly. We danced our first dance to ‘Chasing Cars’ by Snow Patrol and we finished the nighttime on ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Neil Diamond, which transpired a storm. Lots of dancing occurred!”
