Jessica and David’s Le Manoir wedding was on one of the most beautiful wintry days in December. A light sprinkle of frost covered the grass in the morning, and the low winter sun created some fantastical photos.
Their ceremony was held at St Mary’s Church, Great Milton, before they moved down the road to Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons. Both Jessica and David love food, they work in the food industry and are passionate about what they do. After moving to Great Milton, Le Manoir seemed the perfect choice to ensure the food played a delicious and memorable part of their day – and Le Manoir certainly delivered!
In the church itself, that is only a stones throw away from Le Manoir itself, the sunlight streamed through the stained glass windows leaving sunbeams lighting up the church like theatre spotlights
An outstanding menu of roasted scallops, seared sea bass and fillet of Angus beef was served followed by an exquisite salted caramel millefeuille, all served by a fantastic team of staff. Jessica and David chose greys and whites for their theme echoed by the gorgeous flowers from Emma Walker Flowers mixing in some frosted dark green foliage for a truly classic wintry feel without going to garishly Christmassy!
Guests were each given a glass bauble containing a feather and a single word from the vows e.g. love, cherish, forever – how chic and romantic!
A Le Manoir wedding suited the couple’s intimate day down to a tee, the rooms felt full but not overcrowded and were small enough that their group of 40 guests weren’t rattling around. And of course the grounds of Le Manoir delivered as always, the staff keep them looking just as magical all year round which allowed for some fantastic Le Manoir wedding photography – which you know I am always a fan of!
A very special quality of light at this winter wedding which you only really get from December February as the sun stays so low in the sky but the sort of weather you dream of if you are having a winter wedding.
