Leanne and Robert had a beautiful, fairytale wedding day. Leanne was every inch the princess bride, and it looks like she found her prince…
Leanne and Rob met when they were on respective girls and boys holidays but on their return they started dating, and the rest is history! Six years later, the couple were holidaying in Turkey and as they were getting ready to go out Leanne asked if she looked OK, to which Rob replied that he thought something was missing – promptly producing a ring! He was so busy telling her about the carat, colour and quality that he forgot to actually pop the question. Even now Leanne finds herself staring at her hand, admiring her beautiful ring.
Leanne had one bridesmaid – her friend Carlene, who she has known since she was five, and their nieces were the flowergirls. With a theme of romantic elegance, the wedding reception was held in the beautiful marquee at Newland Hall. Lined with fairy lights, it was a magical setting for this beautiful wedding.
Leanne bought dozens of wicker hearts in various sizes that were hung in the trees around the venue. She also bought lots of LED tea lights, which hung in glass balls from the table centres, adding a truly romantic feel for later in the evening.
Leanne treated her female guests to baskets of luxury toiletries in restrooms and a flip flop basket for tired feet. Not a single pair were left at the end of the night! Favours were personalised M&Ms and Love Hearts in sweet packages.
