We spent a magical day and night with Claire & Lee last Friday. Fun, poignant, beautiful and filled with incredible friends and family for 49 guests in the day and up to 100 guests in the evening. This was a super relaxed wedding with a exceptional spirit and heart - beautifully captured by Jon at S6 Photography. The weather was lovely so our guests used the roof terrace for dusky drinks and the Bride & Groom for some super romantic photography in 'The Mowbray Golden Glow'.
Claire and Lee got married at The Chimney House in front of a beautiful wild flower and candlelit alter and after the ceremony sipped back on cold beers before a glorious dried flower confetti haze outside our iconic building. Be sure to check out the gorgeous ceremony photos HERE
The wedding party then headed over to The Mowbray for an enchanting evening...
A real food lovers menu - Claire and Lee choose The Laden Table which is bursting full of vibrancy and flavour - accompanied by freshly shaken Margaritas - of course..!
We styled the feasting tables with wild and beautiful stems and plenty of antique brass candlesticks. Each place setting had a sprig of fragrant wild lavender. As ever The Mowbray essence was burning just as a sensory note in the background.
