Katy and Ben are seriously the sweetest. The couple uses just one word to describe their wedding at The Oak Tree of Peover, Amazing! Well let them tell you more about their magical day, captured by Lumiere Photographic.
How did you come to choose the location and venue? We chose the location because Cheshire is whereI grew up and with Ben originally being from Switzerland meant the Airport was an easy distance for family who were traveling in for the wedding. We took Ben’s mum to view the venue and she walked in and burst into tears because she knew Ben’s dad would have loved it if he could have been there to see it. We didn’t need to look anywhere else after that.
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day? We always knew we wanted a small wedding with a romantic laid-back feel. We didn’t want any harsh colour schemes or anything over the top to take away from the beauty of the venue and the reason why we first fell in love with the venue in the first place.
Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it. I visited a number of shops before choosing ‘the one’. As soon as I walked into Knutsford Wedding Gallery the quality of the dresses was on a different level. I fell in love with the feel of my Rosa Clara dress and when I put it on it suited my shape perfectly. I knew I would be comfortable in my dress from the ceremony to the last dance. I wanted to be able to enjoy every minute of our day and I did!
Any sentimental personal touches? I gave Ben a box of personalised items on the morning of the wedding and a new Tom Ford aftershave so we could always be reminded of the wedding day by the scent. I also surprised Ben with a cream land rover to take the groomsmen to the venue and a saxophonist came out to play our first dance.
Any tips that you can give to future brides? Enjoy the planning and the day – it all goes so fast.
