“Life is the flower of which love is the honey” – Victor Hugo
Melissa and Chris tied the knot in a beautiful Slaughters Manor House summer wedding celebration. It was a dreamy day in the English countryside with the lavender whispering gently in the breeze. Melissa planned everything for the wedding from her home in New York. Our Bride and Groom chose to get married in the Cotswolds as it is close to where Chris grew up. We loved working with the talented creative team our couple hand picked and the Slaughters Manor House ensured a fabulous day was had by all. Congratulations to Melissa and Chris, we wish you many years of happiness as you start married life across the pond!
The Broadway Florist made a classic bridal bouquet with pink and white peonies, roses and a touch of green.
Our Bride wore an ethereal Catherine Deane wedding gown with beautiful detailing on the back.
Louboutins made the perfect something blue!
Melissa made the walk to St Mary’s Church next door with her father by her side.
Chris was all smiles as the moment came for his Bride to make her way to his side!
After the Blessing Melissa and Chris returned to the Slaughters Manor House for the celebrations to begin!
Their gorgeous paper goods playfully incorporated the greek origins of Melissa’s name, which is honeybee!
While guests enjoyed champagne and croquet on the lawns we made the most of the lovely gardens for photos.
We loved Melissa’s hair styled in a classic chignon bun by the talented Chris Fordham Hair Design!
Our Bride’s makeup had also been beautifully done by Natasha Buchanan.
Congratulations Melissa and Chris; we wish you a marriage as filled with sweet memories as your wedding was!
