De Vere Horwood Estate
Two of the coolest cats in town got married and had a party. They invited their close friends and lovely family and had the best day ever. They chose the gorgeous Horwood Estate and it was a perfect setting for the celebration to take place.
I’m not gonna pretend that any part of this wedding was hard work, it was a dream… flipping awesome couple, happy guests, perfect weather and an awesome party was the cherry on top.
Getting to know this couple you instantly fall in love with them both, they’re just so happy, funny and super chilled. I knew their day was going to go swimmingly before it had even started and I was pretty excited to watch them get hitched. I didn’t expect such an emotional ceremony though, it was pretty beautiful and I think they even surprised themselves. The fact that the sun was beaming through the massive bay windows at Horwood Estate made my job that little bit easier.
I wish you both all the happiness you can find. Thank you both so much you pair of lovely people!!
HOW DID YOU MEET?
We went to the same secondary school a year apart, but got to know each other better in Sixth Form & got together at my 18th Birthday party!
WHO DID YOUR FLOWERS?
my amazing friend Helen! The first person I properly met when we moved to Buckingham & she made me feel so welcome. A bonus that she is a part time florist too!! Helens Floral Designs firstname.lastname@example.org (she doesn’t do the Facebook thing)
HOW DID THEY PROPOSE?
Jack proposed on our 9 year anniversary during a trip to Prague (which I had planned and he hijacked with the proposal). I had absolutely no idea it was about to happen, we had walked up into a local park & where overlooking the city below. It was amazing!
WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR DRESS?
Lucy Hart Bridal in Leighton Buzzard – she was amazing at helping me find my dress and even opened when we where still determined to go dress shopping during beast from the east (you know that weekend no one left the house 🤷🏼♀️)
WHO WAS YOUR HAIR STYLIST?
This amazing creation was done by my Maid of Honour Sam (she’s not a hairdresser just fantastic with hair!!) the beautiful vine was another amazing buy at Lucy hart bridal
WHO DID YOUR MAKEUP?
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE FUTURE BRIDE AND GROOMS?
Don’t worry about the little things, it’s your wedding day and they really don’t matter, it will all be amazing what ever happens!
ANY MONEY SAVING TIPS?
You can do anything with a glue gun! But seriously…
see what you can do yourselves – we did all of our stationary ourselves and then printed at home / found a website to print it so cheaply!
If you do it yourselves it also gives it such a personal touch & you can see all your hard work has paid off on the day. Although make sure your prepared to finish a job once you start! After sewing 15 hearts together I really didn’t want to do another 60 but I powered through!
ANY ONE ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUTOUT?
Obviously our photographer was amazing! Make sure you get the perfect one as they provide you the documentation of the day & some fricking amazing photos to go with it!
Also the staff at Horwood Estate where brilliant with running of the day, we didn’t have to think of a thing & it was all so perfect!
