The finer details
Louisa and Sam arrived on the Friday to start their celebrations with a Champagne Afternoon Tea to celebrate Louisa’s birthday with close family followed by a family style dinner in the dining room before restoring early ahead of Saturday’s celebrations. Mandy and Sue (Our M&S!) started early with tea and pastries for all the guests before leaving for Church. Once, they arrived back at Stockton House the celebrations really began with delicious canapés and champagne on the terrace. After a wonderful day, the Sunday was not overlooked with a delightful recovery brunch for everyone in the Secret Walled Garden dining room to ease those sore heads!.
The Secret Garden
Louisa and Sam chose a delicious 3 course wedding breakfast to celebrate their first meal as a married couple featuring delicious Roast Monkfish, Pork belly, Onion puree, sea herbs and crackling to start, Thyme roasted chicken with dauphinoise potatoes, tender stem broccoli and a red wine jus for the main course finishing it off with Eton mess Cheesecake.
Crisp white linen and beautiful high and low floral arrangements completed the elegant classic bridal theme, styled by White Fern Weddings and The Secret Garden Wedding on florals.
The evening celebrations
After heartfelt speeches, the couple invited all the guests to join them on the terrace for drinks at sunset, before returning back to dance the night away with the fantastic Apollo Gold. At 9pm Loaded fries were served usherette style much to the delight of the guests.
A beautiful day for our gorgeous couple.
