Phil and Christine are the most amazing couple. They were so laid back (despite last minute suit dramas!) and couldn’t wait to become Mr and Mrs. They had hoped for beautiful weather for a front lawn ceremony and, in pure Hornington Manor style, the sun came out just for the occasion. The fantasy trees were the focal point for the civil ceremony, created by the florist at Blooming Fantastic. They framed the bride and groom, standing proud at the end of the aisle and were then brought into the wedding barn for the rest of the celebrations.
Jen and Chris live in London, but as Jen grew up just down the road from us, Hornington was the perfect venue for them. Our 19 beautiful bedrooms throughout the Manor were used by guests who had travelled from far and wide to celebrate their day.
Everything about Jen and Chris’ wedding was beautiful, from their table decorations of jam jars wrapped in string (curtesy of Jen’s mum) filled with delicate gypsophelia and white roses, to the glorious weather across the bank holiday weekend! Jen had chosen the most amazing lace gown with floor length veil.
Sarah’s family descend from Scotland originally, but Sarah has always lived in England. Sarah and Neil met in sixth form and have been together ever since; ten years together and two years engaged, true childhood sweethearts! Decorating the barn proved to be a real family team effort. Sarah’s mum, Anne, handmade all the bunting and even had enough spare to do another lap of the barn!
Katie and James, both doctors living in the lovely Tadcaster, arrived on the Friday, armed with family, friends, and miles and miles of homemade bunting! Katie’s mum had lovingly made the most beautiful hessian and white lace bunting and it was the first thing to go up in the barn! Their fabulous florist Wild Floral Couture dressed the tables with jam jars full of flowers and the Lych gate looked stunning with accents of purple.
