SARAH & JAMES | Simple, Elegant Wedding at Bunny Hill with pops of Mauve.
Updated: Oct 14, 2022
At a time in their lives, where lots of their friends have recently been or are getting married, it was important to James and Sarah that their wedding day was unique and just as special as every other one of their friends’.
They didn’t want to use the same venue, so they did lots and lots of Google research, they took a look around loads and loads of places within the area too. Finally, when arriving at Bunny Hill for a viewing, they fell in love with the place straight away!
Many people were travelling long-distances to come to their day in the first place, so they wanted somewhere that could offer them a place to celebrate for a full weekend, not just the day. What they loved most about Bunny Hill, when they arrived, was the modern but traditional feeling the place offered: it’s bare-brick walls contrasting perfectly, with the dramatic grey-framed glazing, which reached up to the blue skies.
They told me how they fell in love as soon as they were shown around. Not only does the place look great, it’s flooded with tonnes of natural light and has a cosy mezzanine balcony, with dark, moody lighting where they enjoyed a sneaky, espresso martini together, as their guests took their seats.
I should mention, Sarah and James are utter foodies, with Sarah telling James in no uncertain terms, that she NEVER shares her food, on their first date. It was potentially, these words that made James know she was the girl for him. With this in mind, they loved working with the in-house catering team (The Hog and Apple) to customise their menu to their liking. Their menu took on a BBQ theme with this being their favourite type of food.
The day was a real term effort in the end, with Sarah and her trusty bridesmaids putting together all of the flowers on the tables along with the bouquets and button holes. Another special event that happened on the run up to the day was James’ family travelling to Yorkshire where they participated in tasting and choosing the cake flavours for each layer.
All they really wanted for their day was for everyone to have a good time; they wanted to enjoy seeing their friends and family and know that afterwards, they’d have made even more brilliant memories with them all.
The couple chose James' sister and Sarah's cousin to do a reading during the ceremony and James' other sister along with Sarah's brother to be witnesses. It was important to them both that they involved their family as much as they could.
Bunny Hill had some really beautiful places for the 'couple photos', Sarah and James enjoyed a strolled through the fairy-light, lit woodland, before going on a ride on the zip-wire to end their evening session-this was so much fun.
