Ah, a woodland wedding.   Love ’em.   A woodland wedding at Ever After, sign me up.

When the lovely wedding photographer Dan Ward  goes the extra mile and gets a photo of said woodland wedding out within hours of the wedding and it’s this photo:

And then to top that I get a lovely email from a happy bride about having had the BEST wedding, well that’s my day made right there…

Amy & Nick had a beautiful wedding here earlier this month.   The weather was perfect, the bride looked radiant, the ceremony was a tear jerker, the food was mouth watering.   Happy couple & happy guests makes for a happy me.

Here’s Amy’s lovely email, hot off the press:

“Hi Nicola,

I’m sat in our suite at our little boutique chateau, reflecting on what was, without doubt, the best day of our lives.

I was going to write on our return, but just felt I wanted to say thank you sooner rather than later.

It was absolutely the most perfect day, from the weather, the outdoor ceremony, the exquisite food and the great band.

We have had so many comments on the beauty and magic of Ever After. People said they felt as if they were in a magical glade and the only ones on earth, surrounded by the woodland and the river.

Others have commented on the quality and quantity of the food as well as the excellent waiting and bar staff. They were all so very approachable, smiley, human(!), proactive and very efficient. The speed in which they got the food out was impressive and many people mentioned that their glasses were never empty during the reception drinks.

Some guests also commented on how the water on tables was always replenished – something I specifically requested. The waiting staff were managed very well by Sally, who also made sure any dietary requirements were strictly adhered to.

There was also great praise for the young man who welcomed people at the gate from their cars. People have said he was very professional whilst being very welcoming.

We also very much appreciate your willingness to take down the awning. I’m so glad we were able to see the wedding barn and the floral arch in all its glory. I also hope it will have provided the opportunity for some beautiful photos to showcase your venue. To us, it made a huge difference.  Thank you.

Bethany was a complete dream all day, making sure I had everything I needed and going above and beyond what I had expected. I felt so incredibly looked after.

So, thank you again to you and your team for making it the most perfect day. I hope Dan will let us see some more shots soon.

With very best wishes,

Amy and Nick”

Another lovely wedding, another lovely couple.   I couldn’t feel luckier to have this job!
