You’d be forgiven if you thought their venue was a country house hotel; isn’t it beautiful? Their sun-filled day was full of colourful wild-style flowers with accents of shimmering gold for a touch of glamour, and the couple’s priority was to throw a great party for their guests, full of fun and good food.
The bride and her grown-up bridesmaids prepared for the day in Cathy’s parents’ home. The bride surrounded herself with relaxed, friendly wedding suppliers so that she could fully enjoy the morning with her friends, and the natural, intimate photographs by Sally T Photography look like they are having such a fun time.
The bridal party travelled to the beautiful Church of the Holy Rude in cars hired from Ultimate Private Hire, and Cathy entered with her father to wedding favourite ‘The Queen of Sheba’ by Handel. The church is so magnificent and looks so welcoming filled with the couple’s guests.
Leaving the church in style, the newly-weds hopped in to a borrowed Ferrari to drive back to the reception, where everyone milled about on the lawn in the July sunshine.
I wanted the bouquets to be quite simple and really loved the gypsophila and olive leaves they created for the bridesmaids. The hanging flowers were amazing in the marquee as I didn’t want huge vases on the tables blocking people’s view.”
After deciding to do the destination wedding, we investigated several countries, but Sri Lanka ticked everything we needed.
Where we want to travel, affordable for our guests but still beautiful and exciting, Sri Lanka is all about it and more! From the amazing hospitality shown by everyone we meet to the world-class cuisine that every meal offers, everything goes beyond perfection beyond our expectations!
We came to this country with 115 guests, only one who once went to Sri Lanka and 115 will be back. We feel very fortunate to be able to share our wedding adventures with many in this amazing country and we will be back!
