Booking Cain Manor
Julia and James narrowed down their choice of wedding venues to just 4, but they knew that Cain Manor was ‘the one’ as soon as they walked through the doors. The barn-style wedding venue in Hampshire ticked too many of the boxes on the couple’s venue wish-list and they also loved the fact that Cain Manor could be hired on an exclusive use basis. Being able to host their entire day under one roof was ideal and the secluded, rustic feel of the venue just felt so right for the day that the couple had dreamed of planning. “It’s beautiful and classy without being grand or snooty and it is welcoming and homely yet still has that sparkle of somewhere special! With roaring fires and cosy furnishings, Cain Manor is perfect for a cosy autumn wedding!” said bride Julia.
The couple found the use of Bijou’s online planner invaluable during the run up to their early November wedding date. Julia quotes “The online planner is a stroke of genius that acted as our best friend in the planning of our wedding. It made everything so straight forward and the best part about it was being able to see a running cost too; they updated instantly when you made changes. It took a lot of stress out of that organisation.”
After booking their wedding, the couple went back to visit Cain Manor exactly a year before their wedding, so that they could get a good feel of what the venue and grounds looked like at the beginning of November. The couple were in awe of how gorgeous the venue looked and in the car on their way home James mentioned how lovely it might be to have an autumn colour scheme at the wedding. The couple then decided to plan their special day around an orange and burgundy colour theme.
