Jade and Leon's Summer Wedding

How we met...

We met at upper school, and were best of friends.

 


The proposal...

I was heavily pregnant with our second child, we went on a date night and Leon proposed then.

 


What made us choose Dodmoor for our special day...

We just loved the layout and that it was all in one place 

 


Our vision for the day...

Myself and Leon are very easy going so we kind of left it down to Alex from Stingray to design for us. We gave her a few colour choices and a few ideas that we liked, then just left her to work her magic! 

 


Our outfits...

I went and got my dress from Gabriella Bridal - it was the first shop I went into! In and out in two hours!

As it was summer we wanted to keep the colours quite light. Everyone’s outfits all really complemented each others, groomsmen and bridesmaids.

 


The food...

We used Lemon Zest for our catering, they were fantastic and everyone loved the food!

We fed our guests deep fried bocconcini mozzarella balls with harissa dressing to start, corn-fed chicken breast in Parma ham with dauphinoise potato for main (grilled halloumi and veg skewers for veggies!), and sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce for dessert. We also had toasties in the evening!

 


Our favourite part of the day...

It’s hard to pick a favourite part as the whole day was just so beautiful and perfect. We loved every moment and so did all of our guests.



What made Dodmoor as a venue stand out to us...

How beautiful the place looked in the day and evening. The size was also perfect for us.

 


The ideas we felt really worked on the day...

Unfortunately for us the weather was not on our side but Dodmoor made it seem as it there was no rain. They had everything in place to make our day magical, and they kept us all dry! 



Entertainment we put on...

We had our own music that we played in the day and then we hired Matt from Potter Group for our evening entertainment. He was fantastic the dance floor was packed all evening! 

 


Where we feel our budget was well spent...

Our budget was really well spent on the Dodmoor daytime drinks package. It was great that we could treat all our guests to drink on us! 



Personal touches that reflected us as a couple...

Touches that reflected us were probably the music choices we had played, the food, and the photos we had all around the bar of us. Just the little touches that made it such a relaxed and fun day for us all.



Suppliers that we used and loved...

We would highly recommend everyone that we used! They were all fantastic and also there at the end of the phone whenever we had any questions!

Words from the couple...
