We decided to keep open minded and visit a few venues. We knew we wanted a smaller venue style as wanted an intimate wedding. As soon as we visited Cain Manor we knew it was the venue for us. The lead up to the venue is incredible and it ticked all the boxes. The staff were very friendly and it just had the wow factor for us. My parents fell in love with it when they saw it and were over the moon for us to get married there. I felt so excited as soon as we booked the date which was only topped by sipping a glass of celebratory champagne in the garden - such a lovely touch and one I’ll remember forever.
The planning process:
I am a bit of a control freak so I planned the wedding by myself. However, everyone at Cain Manor were so helpful and I think it’s fantastic that you’re assigned a wedding planning manager as this really does make life a lot easier! Natalie was extremely helpful from start to finish; I couldn’t have done it without her. The only thing I let my husband pick was the food… we were not disappointed; from presentation to taste it was incredible!!
I remember being a lot calmer than I thought I would be. We got married at a Church and I remember feeling so sick and nervous as soon as I heard the Bridal March starting to play. I remember thinking, “please don’t throw up and “do not trip in front of all the guests!”… Thankfully I was fine.
The stand out moment for me was seeing Luke’s reaction to me walking down the aisle; just wow!
Everything was fantastic when we arrived; Cain Manor was extremely organised and put on an amazing service for my guests. My photographer took some amazing photos and as it was such a sunny day we managed to have the drinks reception outside, which was brilliant. We also had a Harpist which was a great addition and suited the theme of Cain Manor very well. The speeches were an emotional rollercoaster, my husband requested from the team that shots get bought out half way through his speech for his stag party; he wanted the last drinking game to be on them.
