Fennes Manor House and a Luxury Wedding

On April 30th 2016, Patrice and Davids ultra cool wedding took place at The Fennes Manor House in North Essex.  The occasion was truly one of the most luxurious, elegant,  cultural,  christian weddings that we have been involved with for a while which totally superseded our expectations.


The Brides Story

Getting to know the bride is really important to fully understanding her vision so that we can deliver a service that is personal and outstanding; but, this little lady, was sooooooo laid back (apart from her dress choice) that even we were totally surprised – you know that hidden crouching tiger move by Bruce Lee – If you do, you’ll know exactly what I mean!!!   It’s not often this happens but, Patrice was also the bride who helped me shed my prudish tendencies when she insisted the front of the gown be cut so deep I suffered sleepless night wondering how on earth it was going to stay up.  But, she was right, it was amazing! And to see her photos and videos  flooding the web was equal to taking part in the Olympics during 2012.

The Dress

The Dress! Well.  Encrusted with pearls, crystals and seed beads with a super long train, it was an ‘Oscar styled gown’ that towards the end, we were too exhausted to even carry it across the workroom.  I mean, to carry it 5 paces was equal to 5 press-ups or kettle lifts – so now you know why we have such toned uppers for such a genteel industry. But, having said that, the weight is not an issue when a dress fits-to-perfection as the body fills the available space so securely that the weight becomes un-noticeable to the bride. To use an Instagram phrase #Slayinit is the #perfectfit
