A Masterclass in planning a perfect wedding at Rockbeare Manor

Lizi and Marc’s perfectly planned Rockbeare Manor wedding

Anyone planning a wedding must check out this blog, this is a masterclass in how to arrange the most beautiful and well-planned wedding.

Now, it’s no accident that this wedding was planned to such perfection. Lizi works in the industry at one of the most prestigious venues in London (we’re honestly not biased here), so she knows a thing or two about planning a wedding.

She had very definite ideas of what she wanted (and equally what she didn’t want), and that’s half the battle.

First of all Lizi and Marc had chosen a stunning venue in Rockbeare Manor, it was well worth the journey down to Devon. The styling was absolutely beautiful, from the flowers to the stationery every detail had been thought through.
The colour palette of white and blush, with a deep burgundy red sat beautifully alongside the gold details. A really nice touch was the gold cutlery and marble effect chargers, which looked great next to the geometric floral centrepieces – which of course meant guests could talk across the table with uninterrupted views.

We loved the “love goes before us” photo frame, which had polaroids of the guests taken at their own wedding days! (Even we had our photo on there, which was such a lovely touch).

Anyone that has watched “Friends” over the years will be familiar with the phrase “He’s her lobster” well this was the cool cake topper, never before have we seen a lobster on a cake but it looked fantastic and so original.

There’s pretty much only one thing that Lizi and Marc couldn’t control and that was the good old English weather! Totally on form it decided that their weekend would be the right time for a little storm. Yes, it was windy and a tad cold, but it certainly didn’t spoil or detract from the day at all. It did give us some great photos with lots of movement in Lizi’s long veil!

The day was one of happiness and laughter, we think you can see from the photos how happy and in love Lizi and Marc are. It was a huge privilege to have been asked to photograph their wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed being part of their big day.
