MIA & BOB'S | COLOURFUL, BRITISH, COTTAGE GARDEN WEDDING AT THE PHEASANT HOTEL, HAROME.

Joyous, authentic and surreal, is how these two described their wedding day to me later and after the general 2021 way couples have had to adapt to planning their weddings, there's no the wonder it was all of the above. They couldn't actually believe their day was here and that it was going ahead in as normal a way as possible.

Mia and Bob sneaked out for photos with me in between the rain.

When they two got engaged, Bob knew exactly where he'd like to host his wedding. Mia however, did insist in exploring countless other venues too; nevertheless, she had to admit her future husband had hit the nail on the head right away in choosing The Pheasant Hotel, in Harome.

and in the evening, the patio area looks magical lit-up with fairy lights galore.

The pair had stumbled upon their venue of choice ironically by accident, after spending the weekend in Harome a few years ago, they had been enjoying the 7 course taster menu at The Star Inn the night before and woke the following morning to find they were still too full to enjoy their breakfast, which was included in the stay. To build up their appetites, they decided to have a leisurely stroll around Harome, which is when they discovered The Pheasant. Mia told me, they fell in love with the understated luxury and rural setting.


Being foodies, of course they went back to the little village to try The Pheasant out, only to be blown away by it's incredible food too.

Another thing about the venue that struck Mia was that it comprises 16 bedrooms and given the rural setting, it was important to them both that they, along with their guests, would be able to stay on site, after the wedding. There's also the added bonus of a pool too! Plus, they also wanted the weekend to flow without too much transportation, Harome has everything... They were able to have a rehearsal dinner for their wedding party the night before at The Star Inn, and the church wedding they both dreamed of at St Saviours in the village, followed by their reception at The Pheasant. They were able walk everywhere and it gave the weekend a really relaxed feel. Their day was extremely relaxed, as hoped, despite torrential rain and a complimentary thunder storm, which they didn't even hear because they were too busy tearing up the dance floor in the well ventilated conservatory, thanks to Inner Vibe their incredible band. Mia told me how their original band pulled out, just few months before the big day. They searched high and low for a replacement. It turned out that the band cancelling was a blessing in disguise as Inner Vibe were utter perfection. Mai and Bob's words: "A fantastic blend of old school classics and modern pop with a funky soulful twist. We even asked if they could find a saxophonist to add to their line up and they didn't disappoint."

Luckily, Francis, one of his groomsmen was able to knot all of the ties and then pass them along, so they were all done properly.
