The Proposal

Natalie and Jake met whilst they were both holiday in Las Vegas; Natalie was on a girly holiday and Jake was on a stag do!

The couple enjoyed each others company so much that they became a couple and dated for 4 and a half years before Jake decided to take their relationship to the next level.

Jake planned a dream proposal. After arriving home one Friday night after work she realised that their dining room had been filled with 200 pearlised ivory helium balloons, each with a satin ribbon hanging from it. On the end of each ribbon was a ticket, business card, or another keepsake from the hundreds of places that Natalie and Jake had been during their years together. Jake had designed the ultimate engagement ring for Natalie and the couple couldn’t wait to start their wedding planning journey, and their future, together.

They wanted to tie the knot within a year, and ended up getting married just 1 day short of their proposal-versary!

Choosing Cain Manor

When searching for their ultimate wedding venue, Natalie and Jake knew that they wanted a barn venue with accommodation so that their closest friends and family could stay the night.

However, during their search, they found a lot of barn venues to be dark and not so inviting – until they saw The Music Room at Cain Manor. They fell in love with big window seeing as it let in so much light and could instantly envision their day taking place at the exclusive use venue on the border of Surrey and Hampshire.

The Dress

Natalie knew that she wanted to get her wedding dress ‘just right’ for the big day and therefore spent lots of time researching and trying to find her dream gown. She ended up trying on around 20 wedding dresses before falling in love with ‘Elma’ by Ronald Joyce. “The dress was like nothing I had seen before. I wanted something with a bit of sparkle which was elegant at the same time, and this dress just had the most beautiful detail and felt so luxurious” said Natalie.

The Big Day

Ahead of the wedding ceremony, guests were invited to make their own confetti cone from a confetti pick ‘n’ mix table that Natalie and Jake had pre-arranged. As the newlywed couple walked back down the aisle, guests tossed their cones of confetti, making for the ultimate photograph – and memory!

To decorate their wedding reception tables, Natalie and Jake chose to frame their table numbers which sat on mirrored plates. The whole reception had an air of elegance about it. Gypsophilia sat in vases and guests were given photo-stand wedding favours which had their place card attached to it.

The couple also placed a selfie stick on each table so that guests could take their own pictures throughout the day and night; the couple have ended up with a comical album of memories that they’ll now be able to treasure forever.

Come the evening, when the Harper DJ started Natalie’s Cypriot family performed a surprise dance which really got everyone involved. The couple danced their first dance to ‘Kiss Me’ by Ed Sheeran and instead of tossing her own bouquet, Natalie tossed one of the bridesmaids’ bouquets to her single friends – it was all great fun.
