Francesca & Alex//St Thomas Church//MarleyBrook House

Everything about Francesca & Alex’s wedding was gorgeous!  I loved Fran’s vintage lace dress and the colours she had picked for her bridesmaid dresses, lovely & fresh for such a hot sunny day ☀️

The wedding was a perfect combination of classic with a traditional church ceremony followed by a very cool vintage theme, full of quirky charm with retro fun fair that Marleybrook House does so incredibly well.

A day full of genuine emotion as Fran walked down the aisle (I love it when the groom cries!) and utter happiness as everybody soaked up the atmosphere of their surroundings amidst the great outdoors, BBQ and funfair.

Highlights for me were having the speeches outside and breaking from tradition with no formal sit down meal, keeping guests happy and entertained with great food to enjoy outside sitting in the glorious sunshine.

Here a few words from Fran & Alex about their day…

Venue: Marley brook house
Church: st thomas Catholic Church
Flowers: flowers by jo Taylor
Make up: Clare lake
Hair: occasional hair by marina

We picked our venue because it was so unique and different, and we was looking for somewhere that showed the sort of people that we are, and marleybrook house was perfect, we fell in love as soon as we drove up the drive way. And the reason we picked to get married in st thomas church was because that is where I ( Fran) was christened and did my first hold communion, it’s also linked to the primary school and secondary school I went to along with most of my family, so there was no question that this was where I wanted to marry my best friend!

Our wedding theme and style was vintage and retro! But also classic…Just because that’s what we love and who we are.   I borrowed my mother in laws diamond earrings to wear.
The best part of the day for us was turning up to Marley brook house and seeing all our friends and family enjoying the fair ground and food! We also had so much fun dancing and singing along to our first dance along with our reggae band!
we had a reggae music and a vintage fun fair as our entertainment  & our first dance song was rusted roots- send me on my way.
We picked this because it’s reminds us of the film Matilda which we both love, and have watched together many times! We also did not want a slow song because it doesn’t represent the sort of people we are and we felt like this song did!
