Real Wedding - Sarah and Rob’s Elegant Summer Wedding At The Elvetham

Real Wedding - Sarah and Rob’s Elegant Summer Wedding At The Elvetham | CHWV

This beautiful Hampshire wedding venue provided the happy couple with the picturesque and impressive setting that they had been looking for!

“Initially we thought we wanted to get married in a modern venue and looked at various venues however we both always left with a niggling doubt in our minds. One day some of our close friends asked if we had looked at The Elvetham – this wasn’t a venue we had considered but quickly arranged to pop over and see it. From the minute we pulled up to the gates, we were bowled over by the beautiful venue. Our decision was sealed when we walked into the flowering gardens. Imagining our friends and family celebrating our special day on the lawn brought tears to our eyes.” - Sarah

“We knew we wanted a hint of claret in the day to acknowledge the groom’s second love in life - West Ham. We therefore had claret for the groom and ushers and blush pink for the bridesmaids. Neither of us knew where to start with choosing the flowers – the only thing that I knew as the bride was that I wanted to include stocks as they’re my favourite. As soon as we met Sharon from Flowers in the Attic, she immediately took charge and calmed our nerves. We had a mix of peonies, roses and stocks with the groom, best men and ushers having the most wonderful claret-coloured calla lilies.” – Sarah

“I had no idea what kind of wedding dress I wanted and didn’t know where to start. 12 months before the wedding myself and my bridal party headed to Tilly Mint Bridal Boutique. As I had no idea where to start, I asked everyone to pick one dress. After quickly dismissing four of the six, I tried on the one my sister had selected and when I came out of the changing room everyone burst into tears. I knew then I had found my dress.” – Sarah

“I woke up at 5:30 am on my wedding day feeling both nervous and excited. This had been over two years in the making and everything had led up to this day! I went for a walk around The Elvetham’s grounds and watched the sun come up sitting on the steps in the garden. After a morning of getting ready with the girls, I was privileged to have my son walk me down the aisle and I had to fight back the tears as my future husband turned and we made eye contact for the first time that day.” – Sarah

“After a wonderful day celebrating and an incredible wedding breakfast, complete with a cameo from the Singing Waiters, it’s safe to say that we had the best time. We made memories that will last a lifetime and wouldn’t change anything about the day we shared with our loved ones.” – Sarah
