Inspiration

Fiona and Josh's glorious big day at Euridge Manor is proof you should always chat through ideas with your venue on how to have your day your way. The happy couple were the first to marry under the archway of the castle in a beautifully relaxed and informal outdoor ceremony. There were sparklers, fire pits, canine ring bearers, garden games and lots of homemade signage. Let's take a peek and brighten up our Mondays!

Favourite Moment Of Our Day

It's difficult to choose a favourite moment of the day, but if I had to it would be when we went for photos late evening at the boat lake. It was peaceful and private as none of our wedding party knew we were going there. It was exciting as it's very difficult climbing into a small boat in a wedding dress and it gave us a chance to spend some time together just us, and a chance to reflect on the day. Being on the boat reminded me of my favourite scene in the film 'The Notebook,’ which felt very romantic.

Euridge Manor

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds lies Euridge Manor and The Lost Orangery. I absolutely love that the venue is close to Fiona and Josh's own village and so they were able to overlook their own little piece of England on their wedding day. The venue has multiple spaces to entertain guests and as these images show, plenty of stunning backdrops for your photos. It's worth discussing with your photographer if they offer a pre-venue visit to scope out possible locations for your own shots. If you use our very own supplier directory The List, lots of Photographers list this as an option to help you draw up your shortlist.

I've always had a penchant for a DIY sign or two so am a big fan of Fiona and Josh's homemade signage. For lots more do-it-yourself projects then have a gander in the RMW DIY archives where we'll have three more tutorials added very soon.
