Verity & James

Photos by Bridle Photography

Verity & James live in Hertfordshire but decided to come to Dorset for their wedding and chose the stunning Plush Manor to hold their ceremony and reception. This hidden gem of a wedding venue is a truly incredible place.

We had the pleasure of meeting Verity & James on one of their visits to the venue and had the honour of providing On the Day Coordination.

Their August wedding was on a beautifully sunny day. We spent the morning setting up chairs for the ceremony as well as bespoke decoration pieces created by Verity, James and their friends.

The ceremony was outside with a lovely long aisle down the lawn from the house. The photograph opportunities are plentiful, which Bridle Photography took full advantage of.

After the ceremony, we moved the chairs into the deconsecrated church, which is the incredible reception venue at Plush Manor and moved the PA system into another area of the garden for guests to enjoy music with their drinks.

When the caterers were ready, we invited guests into the church to be seated for the wedding breakfast. Verity and James, along with their family and friends, had transformed the church into a stunning wedding reception with three long banquet style tables and beautiful table settings.

Whilst guests were enjoying their meal, we prepped the outside area for the evening celebrations by turning on the festoon lights, lighting the fire, opening the bar area and turning on candles which were dotted around.

After guests finished enjoying their meals and the speeches and vacated the building, we turned the room around by clearing lots of the tables and chairs and creating a dance floor area.

Verity, James and all of their family and friends made us feel extremely welcome. It’s easy to forget we’re working sometimes but especially at this lovely wedding!

One week on from our wedding and the dust has settled, by all accounts, we pulled of the wedding of the year! We couldn’t have done this without the help of Sam, both on the day and behind the scenes beforehand. We both had the best day ever and were only able to relax and enjoy it knowing Sam was in total control – it flowed amazingly well and there was nothing that didn’t go the way we had both envisaged. Sam is a true super star. She gives you her undivided attention and pulls off the impossible at the last minute. She was a huge support both emotionally and physically on the day. We cannot recommend her enough.
