A Glamorous Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club Wedding
A classic and stylish country house venue having a beautifully restored former chapel along with a secret garden may be the setting for today’s celebration and something for which our couple takes their Christian faith at its heart.
On the three August 2019, speech and language teacher Olivia married, who’s a project manager in sports, in addition to a part-time wedding videographer. They celebrated at historic, Grade II listed within the Sussex countryside, by having an outdoor ceremony and then a reception locked in the venue’s former chapel.
Olivia chose her beautiful dress. I love the contrast between your glittering, fitted embellished top and also the full, ballgown skirt of tulle.
“I loved it was not the same as any wedding gown I had seen. I wanted that it is a standout dress that I knew no one else I knew might have worn before.”
Wedding transport came thanks to, which drove the wedding party right to the aisle, in which the bridesmaids made their way down first, wearing blush bridesmaid dresses, and shoes.
“We initially met when I was 13 and Aidan was 15 at a family party. Sadly, we lost touch for several years until we reconnected whilst both of us worked part-time in a local store.”
“We became friends and eventually started dating. We dated for three years before Aidan asked the key question whilst we’d a fantastic weekend away in Rome.”
“Twenty months later I was married, coupled with the best day of our way of life.”
Two friends played Canon in D by Pachelbel on violin and guitar as Olivia walked down the aisle with her Dad, Jon. Olivia and Aidan attend a church in Canterbury and coupled legally married around 1 August. For this celebration, their ceremony was conducted by an Elder using their church.
“We loved the standard feel from the venue, also it was exactly what I was looking for. The stained glass windows from the chapel, the gorgeous grounds, and also the local area all attracted us to this venue. Our style was greatly led by the standard feel of the venue. As Christians, we felt the venue reflected our faith too.”
After the ceremony, Olivia and Aidan took a drive in their wedding car and could spend some time together out in the surrounding countryside using their photographer,
“James was amazing from start to finish. He is an easy-going, relaxed individual who makes you feel relaxed straight away. James captures natural photographs, which we fell deeply in love with at our engagement shoot.”
“He spent time understanding our friends and family, that was such a personal touch. Our family and friends will be recommending James for several years to come.”
These resulting images are filled with joy, and James has so thoughtfully and beautifully captured the essence of Olivia and Aidan’s day, as well as their magnificent venue.
Words of Wedded Wisdom
“Try and secure a venue that has an event coordinator included because this took away lots of potential stress for all of us. Having entertainment before the speeches was an incredible way of settling speech nerves and letting everyone have fun after a sizable meal. Everyone was then raring to go for the evening reception.”
