A Perfectly Planned Day at Cain Manor for Natalie and Luke

Cain Manor was the perfect venue for Natalie and Luke's truly elegant spring wedding

A Venue with the Wow-Factor

We decided to keep open mind and visit a few different wedding venues; we knew we wanted a smaller venue as we wanted an intimate wedding. As soon as we visited Cain Manor we knew it was the venue for us. The approach to the venue is incredible and it ticked all the boxes. The staff were very friendly and it simply had the wow factor for us. My parents fell in love with the venue 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 was so helpful and I think it’s fantastic that we had the support of the Wedding Planning Management Team as this really does make life a lot easier! Natalie from the team 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 the presentation to the taste - it was incredible! 

The Big Day

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! 

The Reception

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 style 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.​

We chose John Legend “All of me” for our first dance; we loved the words and only chose it two weeks before the wedding. We were sat eating dinner one night when it came on and we just knew it was the song for us.   

The Honeymoon and Top Tips for Future Bijou Couples

We went to Thailand and the Maldives for our honeymoon – it was incredible and we highly recommend these destinations!  

Our advice to future Bijou couples would be to organise everything well in advance of the wedding date – this saves a lot of stress and allows you to feel on top of everything. Try to ignore outside influences that stress you out or make you doubt your decisions; go with what you think. Delegate tasks for people to do on the day. Most of all enjoy it - Cain Manor know what they’re doing and do a fantastic job of looking after everything.
