The ceremony itself was short and sweet as they couldn’t wait to say their vows with their young children by their side.
After a memorable drinks reception in front of the historic county house wedding venue, the couple and their guests were invited back into the Monks’ Refectory for to be welcomed by a carefully chosen wedding banquet menu. In terms of table décor, Sophie specifically wanted small centre pieces so her guests could easily see each other around the table. They went for white flowers within a round glass placed on mirror circles, and glass tea lights candles; a simple but effective design.
Each reception table was named after well known Chelsea football players and each guest had a silver, laser cut, personalised place setting and a shot glass as a favour which said “Sophie and Si have tied the knot, take a shot!”
As their first dance song, the couple chose ‘Wherever You Will Go’ by Charlene Soraia and the couple said their evening entertainment ‘Hekyl and Jive’ were great and topped off what had been the perfect day; the dance floor was full all night!
