Your East Midlands Wedding - December 2022/January 2023 (Issue 53)

We had a nod to Christmas with green drapes a nd little gold stags placed on the tables. Princess Occasions styled the venu e and created the most magical vibe – I cried when I saw it. Set in 20 acres of beautiful countryside, Dodford Manor is a converted barn with modern touches. We instantly fell in love with the property and knew it would be perfect for our reception. Our florist was amazing at guiding us through the flowers – she did a beautiful job. I wanted the wedding breakfast space to look very romantic, which is why we got married in December as I wanted it to be dark outside during a candle-lit dinner. Our ceremony took place in our local church and our vicar was so lovely. Watching our little boy walk down the aisle was the best thing ever and made us both very proud. 32
