On the lookout for a Norfolk wedding venue, Victoria and Sam fell in love with Manor Mews as soon as they set foot through the door.
“It was a beautiful barn and perfect for what we wanted,” smiles Victoria.
Design and Décor
Setting a September date, the happy couple chose a pastel colour palette with a subtle Disney theme. Disney table names featured alongside candles and fairy lights. Victoria and Sam made most of the decorations themselves, from a beautiful arch with fabric and artificial flowers to tea cup favours filled with tea, coffee and biscuits.
When it came to flowers, beautiful roses sat on the tables alongside other floral arrangements and olive trees sat at either side of the aisle.
“We just wanted it to be a relaxing day,” explains Victoria. “we had been planning for two years and just wanted to enjoy every second and have fun!”
And the Bride Wore…
After trying on a number of dresses, Victoria found her dream gown in ‘Brides of Norfolk’ in Fakenham. Slim fitting with detail at the top and a beautiful train, she loved it as soon as she tried it on.
The beautiful bride accessorised with ivory shoes, a pearl necklace and earrings and a head piece worn by her mother on her wedding day.
As for the groom... Sam hired his suit from Slaters, choosing a navy design and tweed waistcoat. The groomsmen wore the same with different waistcoats and ties.
Accompanying her down the aisle, Victoria had four bridesmaids. Her two adult maids wore knee-length dresses in green and blue while the flower girls looked adorable in pink and purple.
“The bridesmaids had the same shoes as me but in silver glitter!” smiles Victoria.
Their Special Day
Following their ceremony at Manor Mews, guests enjoyed a drinks reception before moving in to dine. Roast chicken was served, followed by a delicious passion fruit cheesecake.
As the sun went down, Victoria and Sam danced their first dance to ‘Chasing Cars’ by Snow Patrol. Chip cones and bacon sandwiches proved a popular choice for evening food and the newlyweds, along with their guests, danced the night away!
“Marrying Sam, of course! I was so nervous but as I started to walk and I looked at Sam, it all went away. I couldn’t take my eyes off him and I knew everything would be OK.”
Advice from the Bride
“Unexpected things happen. Relax, roll with it and just take a moment to breathe it all in. The day goes so quickly, take a minute with your new partner and just look around.”
