Leanne & Ben’s love affair started in the hustle and bustle of New York, turned into an engagement when Ben proposed in the Cape Winelands of South Africa, and became official in the romantic English countryside where these globetrotting high-flyers tied the knot. Champagne towers were a must, a surprise musical interlude in the midst of the wedding breakfast had everyone out of their chairs, and Brazilian show dancers secretly organised by Leanne was a major surprise for Ben after their First Dance. Aside from all these playful touches, for Leanne & Ben, family was at the heart of their celebrations. They chose the Manor House in Castle Combe for their wedding as England is where Ben’s family are all from. And with Leanne’s extended, blended and very tight knit family residing all across the US – including two Dads, three Moms and a host of siblings – it made sense for everyone on her side to gather together across the pond. Magic was in the air the entire day, as when a real butterfly landed on the stationery flat-lay we were photographing, right next to the butterfly postal stamp Leanne had chosen for their wedding invitations! Leanne & Ben’s destination wedding in the Cotswolds, with the incredible team from Planned for Perfection at the helm, was absolutely one for the books!
Thank you to everyone who made Leanne & Ben’s Destination Wedding at The Manor House in Wiltshire such a roaring success!
