Vintage Style Wedding
This is the beautiful wedding of Sacha and Ashley who tied the knot on their 6th year anniversary on the 18th July 2014 at the impressive Offley Place Country Manor House, Hertfordshire. The day was captured by Belle Momenti Photography.
Who proposed to who and where, was it a surprise, describe your engagement ring?
We had a holiday booked to Cuba in February 2012 and all the girls had suspicions that Ashley would propose to me. On the 1st day of our holiday, whilst Ashley was in the shower, I looked everywhere in the hotel room for a ring because I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I didn’t find a ring… so thought to myself I can get it out of my head because he’s not going to propose. That evening, he took me to a beautiful restaurant on the beachfront and got down on one knee to propose to me. It was such a beautiful proposal. Ashley knew me too well so hid the ring behind reception in the hotel!
The ring was beautiful and everything I would have chosen myself, princess cut platinum ring with a large square diamond and a diamanté band.
Where did you go for the hen party, how many people went,
I went to Brighton with 24 of my friends and family! We stayed in a gorgeous ‘Wonderland Themed’ house
Where did the groom go for the stag do, how many people went, any interesting stories?
The groom went to Marbella with 10 of his friends and they put him in a pink mankini!
How and why did you Offley Place as your venue?
The venue is beautiful and we fell in love it as soon as we saw it. The conservatory where we had our ceremony was such a gorgeous room. The grounds are also beautiful and the venue just felt perfect for what we were looking for.
We booked it 2 years in advance.
Is there anything you learned that you think is an important tip for future wedding couples?
Take a moment alone as bride and groom to take in all around you as the day is so over whelming.
