The bride and groom held their ceremony in The Newnham Suite followed by post-ceremony drinks on the Italian Terrace.
For glowing bride Linda choosing The Tylney Hall Hotel as a venue was a very easy decision.
“It was the only venue we considered! We’re very fond of Tylney Hall, having enjoyed many a Sunday lunch in the Oak Room and afternoon tea in the lounges for family birthdays and other special occasions. The customer service is second to none, so we knew we’d be well looked after.”
The couple celebrated with a springtime theme as the bride looked pretty in pink with her beautiful flowers and Alfred Sung gown. They chose Alistair Jones of Ideal Imaging as their wedding photographer who also shot their engagement snaps.
“Our wish was for the wedding to be intimate and special – which it was!” Twelve guests attended the ceremony while 48 joined the happy couple for their evening banquet.
“For our wedding meal our guests pre-ordered from the following choices:
Leek and Potato Soup with Crème Fraîche and Chives
Potted Ham Hock with Potato, Carrot, Parsley and Gherkins
Classic Prawn Cocktail
Traditional Roast Sirloin of Scottish Beef with Yorkshire Pudding, Creamed Horseradish
Breast of Chicken filled with Wild Mushrooms and Leeks with a Tarragon Butter Sauce
Seared Fillet of Sea Bass with Spinach and a Warm Tomato and Basil Vinaigrette
Vanilla Pannacotta with Fresh Raspberries
Eton Mess (and the chef made me my own special dairy-free Eton Mess!)
Treacle Tart with Clotted Cream
“Every minute of our wedding day was absolutely perfect, so it’s impossible to choose a favourite moment. We did enjoy tea and toast at 2am whilst opening our cards and presents though!”
Linda recommends future brides-to-be to “stay in Room 10 at Tylney Hall the night before your wedding. I was so relaxed and happy in this lovely room – and was treated like a princess by the staff.”
In keeping with the intimate theme of the day, blushing bride Linda had a 1966 sixpence (the year Steve was born) sewn into her garter as her ‘something old’. Her parents Diane and Gerry even baked the couple’s stunning wedding cake, intricately moulding every single flower from sugar paste.
She wore her friend Elaine’s Chanel Allure Eau de Parfum as her ‘something borrowed’ and her ‘I do’ Swarovski lettering on the soles of her bridal shoes was her ‘something blue’.
A huge thanks to Linda and Steve for sharing their special day with us. Check out The Tylney Hall Hotel for your very own intimate wedding venue organised by the hotel’s Wedding Coordinator Garry Sampson. Visit Ideal Imaging Photography for even more spectacular wedding images.
