They got married and had their reception at Ashton Lodge Country House in Warwickshire on 16th June last year and had a heatwave weekend. It was a beautiful day with all the guests being able to sit outside in the sunshine!
Danielle said choosing the venue was the most difficult part of planning because I thought I was fussy but wow…my husband was even worse!! He nit picked at every venue we looked at until we came across Ashton Lodge which we both fell in love with. The setting of the venue was beautiful and we loved the marquee attached to the venue and it would match perfectly to our shabby chic and rustic theme. We also loved that none of our guests would have to move from one venue to another venue for the wedding and reception. We loved that all our family and friends could stay over and have breakfast with us in the morning too.
I’ve always said that my dad never cries!!
When my dad came in he put his arms out with the worlds biggest grin then he all of a sudden teared up and then I got a emotional, my mum got emotional and my bridesmaids got emotional! My dad told me he was so proud of me and proud of the person I had become.
Then the registrar came in to see me and told me how lovely my husband to be was also said to calm down as I was getting really nervous, 1:58pm came and It was my time to make my way down stairs to the ceremony room, I walked down the stairs after my bridesmaids who were waiting all at the bottom of the staircase for me all crying and smiling like Cheshire cats. I stood behind them and their queue for the music to walk down the aisle, then I waited back and it was my big moment to walk down the aisle to my future husband.
I walked in and the overwhelming feeling of all these eyes looking at me, I walked around the corner to see Luke and he was crying when he saw me I couldn’t wait to get down to him.
