Emma & Will

Who: Emma and Will | When: Saturday 14th July 2018 | Where: Frating Abbey, Colchester

One decision Emma and Will didn’t struggle with when it came to planning their wedding was the location. The Groom’s family’s farm provided the perfect, rustic backdrop for their special day. The reception was hosted on a spectacular raised lawn, while a magical, glass-topped marquee was situated through the trees in the walled garden. A blend of sweet and simple styling in neutral accents of whites and pale botanical greens completed this wedding wonderland.

A traditional double decker bus transported guests from the church to the house where canapés, such as Peking Duck Roll Pancakes and Grilled Halloumi Skewers were circulated on a mix of styled serving platters and rustic cages draped with white roses. Refreshments came in the form of fizz, and also English Elderflower flavoured water set up on a pretty ladder display station.

In honour of the Bride’s home country, New Zealand Lamb was the requested main dish for the wedding breakfast. It was pretty clear how much the Mother of the Bride loved it when she came into the kitchen at the end of the meal and demanded a hug from head chef, Chris. Her words were, ‘I am born in New Zealand and I know my lamb, this was absolutely fantastic, it was so delicious!’

Afterwards, a stunning Patisserie Bar was set up, with a single gold leaf tiered cake created by Fifi Cakery, which sat alongside our delicious potted desserts and decadent chocolate lollipops and macaroons. And the verdict from the happy couple? Quite simply, the Bride and Groom said it was the best day of their lives!
