Saturday 26 April - Stoke Place

Hannah and Patrick

Stoke Place (near Slough) is a Queen Anne style Manor House surrounded by parkland and from the outside looks like a traditional country house. However the inside mixes classical and modern and allowed Hannah and 'Patrick to really celebrate with their family and friends.

Hannah's style was also very timeless but with a few elements of girly bling! Her dress was actually strapless but she had a lace sleeved top added with belt. This meant it could be removed for the evening party.

I think these were the largest flower arrangements I've ever seen and every window sill was filled with candles. It took ages for the staff to light them all!

The ceremony entrance was all planned out however the little flower girls took one look at the number of guests and changed their minds about walking down the aisle.

There's no shortage of greenery at Stoke Place for photo backdrops. The most organsised ladies attending had bought heel protectors for their shoes so that they didn't get muddy.

The hotel also has it's own supply of push bikes - should you fancy a cycle rather than a walk. Patrick (who rides a bike anyhow) seemed to really enjoy getting to grips with his new method of transport.

The candles were re-lit for the wedding breakfast where the tables had a mix of high and low arrangements. The menus also included cartoon portraits of family and bridal party members which were all spookily realisitic!

Hannah and Patrick wanted their evening to be a proper party. The giant H & P initials that lit up were a frequent prop for them (and their guests) to pose with - plus the photobooth got everyone dressing up.
