I’m sure you’ll agree the result of all their hard work paid off…

Maid of honour made Kate’s anklet from parts of her school uniform and their friendship necklaces. Kate’s hair clip was handcrafted by a jeweller, made with broken family jewellery and the bouquet is kept together with her Grandfather’s watch.

Place name roses made from pages of their university text books. Tea towel favours designed with a silhouette of Berwick Lodge and their beloved whippet, Pepper.

Rose, peach and Tiffany blue tones adorn the tables along with book centre pieces made with Tiffany colours – jewellery close to their hearts that bring back memories of Ben’s gift buying over the years.

Kate and Ben’s bespoke menu was created upon meeting with Chef.

Photobooth and signage built and created by Ben’s father.

Kate says.. “We both agreed that we wanted to go somewhere private and secluded for our big day and as we made the drive up to Berwick Lodge we knew it was the place for us. It felt like we’d rented a big country house for the weekend but with an amazing team of staff and insanely tasty food! Our guests absolutely loved it and are begging to go back for a weekend away. The wedding team were so dedicated, despite my endless detailed spreadsheets and frantic emails! Nothing was too much trouble for them and on the day everything was literally perfect.”

Wedding co-ordinator, Emma Mordey says… “The best bit for us is seeing a couple putting their personalities into to their big day. Whilst the venue is elegant, it’s naturally enhanced by the personal touches that go into the detail and make it truly memorable for everyone. Not every couple knows what they want like Kate & Ben though! With my experience and the help of many of the wedding blogs and Pinterest boards around at the moment, everyone can have a go at creating their own styling ideas“
