Hannah & Dan

This morning’s lovely wedding really warms the heart because it was such a team effort from family and friends – almost every element was borrowed or crafted, which meant that Hannah and Dan’s wedding had an understated and laid back vibe – but it was still ever so beautiful! The gorgeous rustic floral arrangements were created by one of the couples friends, which meant that Hannah got to enjoy trips to the flower market and could be involved every step of the way. And the couple gave guests home made honey as favours, what a delicious treat.

Hannah’s gown was a great find in Monsoon, whose gorgeous Bridal collection you can see right here on Rock My Wedding. A fabulous option for those who don’t want to fork out thousands of pounds on a dress, but still want unusual design, stunning details and craftmanship you can trust – I mean just look at Hannah’s dress…it’s one of the loveliest I’ve ever seen and suits her down to the ground.

Helpful Friends & Family

Hannah the Bride: It really feels as if our wedding was an amalgamation of the skills, talents and generosity of our friends and family. My brother Tim owns a couple of classic cars, he kindly chauffeured us in his 1974 Triumph Dolomite, which looked the part in the country lanes around High Rocks.

Our very talented friend Isabel arranged our flowers and even took me to the Covent Garden Flower Market very early which meant we could be involved in choosing flowers that that Dan and I both like.

Keeping Costs Down

We decided to make our own wedding cake, it seemed like a fun thing to do. It turned out to be rather a team building exercise – excellent marriage prep!

After several unsuccessful and slightly disheartening visits to Bridal Boutiques, I accidently found the bridal section in Monsoon when shopping with my mum one Friday evening – there was my dress. It wasn’t the kind of dress that I had been searching for, far from it. But every detail felt comfortable, the colour complimented my skin tone (unlike so many of the brilliant white dresses I tried on), it wasn’t heavy, I could move with ease. Even with its intricate and elaborate beading it felt simple.

The Venue

Dan the Groom: We got married in our home church in Bexley; from the pastor to the congregation, the registrar to the musicians we were amongst friends and family. Our band played a pretty special rendition of ACDC’s ‘Back in Black’ as we walked out of the church.

We couldn’t have asked for a better reception venue. High Rocks is beautiful grand house concealed in the most beautiful ivy along a quiet country lane, situated just south of Tunbridge Wells. The venue is family run and we couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome by Maggie, Giuseppe, Joey and the team.

The Photography

We came across White Stag Wedding Photography (Catherine and Andy) as they had photographed at High Rocks before. They were amazing at making us feel at ease and their relaxed approach ensured the day was stress free. Hannah and I aren’t big fans of having our photo taken, but they were great at making us not feel self-conscious and took such excellent and natural looking photos.
