Nonsuch Mansion Summer Wedding

Bride in Nonsuch Park Surrey

The beautiful bride in Nonsuch Park

Here’s a recent summer wedding at Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey. Emi and Sho are a Japanese couple who both live and work in London and decided to hold their big day in England. Most of the 100 or so guests came from abroad to be at the wedding, flying in from countries which including the US, Canada and, of course Japan.

The couple decided to take advantage of the good weather and hold their ceremony on the lawns of Nonsuch which was just perfect for a summer wedding.

Sho and the guys prepared downstairs with a ‘nip’ of a very fine looking Whiskey whilst upstairs Emi and her bridesmaids preferred a glass of Champagne to help them along.

Emi’s beautiful Vera Wang dress seemed to suit the backdrop of Nonsuch Mansion, inside and also out in the park too.

The newly weds and their guests enjoyed some fabulous food created by the chefs at Nonsuch. As you can see they started with a chicken liver parfait before enjoying fillet of beef. Flowers were courtesy of Michelle Rust.

After the wedding breakfast there was still time for some more photographs in the gardens of Nonsuch Mansion and even a spot of photobombing. The day was finished off with some very impressive dancing.

A Wedding at Winchester Cathedral and Lainston House

 A lovely Springtime wedding set in the heart of Hampshire.

Andrea and Tom held their wedding ceremony in the grand setting of Winchester Cathedral followed by a wedding reception at the beautiful Lainston House hotel. Andrea, with her bridesmaids and Mother, spent the morning preparing at Lainston House whilst Tom and the boys were enjoying a lunch in Winchester, just a short walk from the cathedral.

During the ceremony there was  really amusing reading from the groom’s regimental Padre and his sister, Emma, impressively sang solo.

The newlyweds then left the cathedral through a guard of honour made up of military swords and oars which reflected both Tom’s career and his leisure time!

The couple then drove themselves to the reception in the groom’s father’s pride and joy; a 1960s Austin Healey Mark III. It looked quite at home parked outside Lainston House (above).

The bride’s gorgeous dress was designed by Suzanne Neville and her stunning bridal flowers came from The Blooming Workshop

Spring Wedding at Nonsuch Mansion

We had a wonderful spring day for the wedding of Debs and Pete at Nonsuch Mansion. Debs and her bridesmaids spent the morning in the Nonsuch bridal suite getting ready for the day ahead before heading off to Christ Church in Sutton for her wedding ceremony.

Purple was the theme for the day and this was reflected in the flowers created by Michelle Rust and the impressive cake which was made by a friend of the bride.

Who knows if it was nerves or just a bug, but come the day of the wedding, the groom had lost his voice and, although he managed to produce the words “I do!”, his speech was read for him by his bride.

The newlyweds are currently honeymooning in Borneo.
