An Essex Wedding - November/December 2023 (Issue 113)

Isabella and Kane met during freshers week at the University of East Anglia in Norwich and somehow managed to fall in love whilst drinking VKs and listening to Queen on repeat! Following University, the pair moved back to Kane’s family home in Essex whilst looking to buy a house of their own. Kane proposed at Tonnage Bridge in the Norfolk Broads. Tonnage Bridge is a beautiful remote location with luxury camping lodges. Isabella describes, “It was so special to return to Norfolk, the place where we met and lived for three years together and start this exciting new chapter. The day after we got engaged, we returned to Norwich city centre and it felt like such a full circle moment.” On August 10th, 2023 Isabella and Kane tied the knot at Channels Estate. Here, Isabella tells us more... SETTING THE SCENE Kane found the venue online and booked to go and view it. Isabella tells us, “We both fell in love straight away. The outside ceremony ‘church without a roof’ is what really sold it to us. Channels is so well set up, the ceremony options are stunning, the barn feels really light and grand, and the accommodation is incredible.” The venue looked so tasteful. On every table, beautiful centrepieces were loaded with white florals and green foliage on tall standing gold plinths. The flowers were a mix of real and silk. Isabella describes, “Abi from Prestige Petals made me the most incredible bridal bouquet with white roses and hydrangea with green foliage whilst Kane had a matching buttonhole. She also created three dried lavender, bunny tail and gypsophila bouquets for my bridesmaids.” The cake was an elegant two-tier design with a bow and a small figurine of their gorgeous pooch, Winnie. DRESSED TO IMPRESS Isabella’s dress was so special, “I had a bespoke wedding dress designed and created by Lora Nova. I went to the Wedding Show in London with my mum shortly after I got engaged and tried on some dresses. I knew that I wanted an A-line, off the shoulder lace gown. 38
