Sheene Mill Wedding
When you wake up on the morning of your wedding day to the sound of rain your heart sinks a little, but don’t panic! Your day may not go exactly as you thought it might but it will still be amazing and we get to have fun with lights and umbrellas, so it can’t be all that bad eh! I guess what I really mean is, enjoy your day. The weather is the one thing that you have zero control over. Witha beautiful venue, your Sheen Mill Wedding will be a wonderful day.
Beth was tucked away and getting ready with a window looking over the millpond and the perfect view to see the boys having some photos taken by my assistant Rob. Not to mention Sheene Mill’s resident swan, Will. Plans changed and the ceremony moved to the indoor room in a flash. Not to worry we would use the beautiful summer house on the pond once the rain stopped. Once it stopped we managed to do all the family formal photos outside on the decking. The gardens are so beautiful that it was lovely to be able to use them
In their own words.
Where you first meet
We meet at Jesus college.
Who asked who and how? We went to Venice to celebrate our 4 year anniversary, we were on a gondola exploring the city when Micheal got down on one knee, and of course, I said yes!
Wedding planning, good, bad and fabulous?
I loved wedding planning, we went to a lot of wedding fairs, I found it exciting finding suppliers that do exactly what you’re looking for and loved meeting people. Micheal took a back seat with the planning but he did decide on putting prawn cocktail on the menu….which I’ll never hear the end of haha.
How was day through your eyes?
I woke up at 4 in the morning to the sound of rain jumping off the millpond outside, I remember thinking yes! If it’s raining now hopefully it will clear up later, I then fell back asleep. Waking up at 8 I realized my wishful thinking was oh so very wrong…still chucking it down! I soon came to grips with the fact that the outside summer wedding I’d planned was going to be your British summer wash out! Whilst getting my hair and makeup done the rain playing off the millpond made for tranquil background noise, and I feel this helped keep me calm all morning. Seeing all the suppliers arrive made it so exciting, I loved my boutique from Becky at feather and ferns. After getting my dress on the nerves began to creep in….this is really happening! Walking through to the ceremony room was an experience I’ll never forget with endless umbrellas protecting us all from the elements. Walking down the aisle I was determined I wasn’t going to cry as when I start I just can’t stop. The ceremony room was dressed beautifully, and it was lovely to look out onto the millpond and pavilion. The ceremony went by in a flash. It was lovely to chat to everyone at the drinks reception and show my uncle my nanna’s badge I had to fasten my bouquet, to make sure there was something of hers at the wedding as I know she would have loved to be there. The weather gave us a break and we could have photos outside which was amazing! The day went by so quickly the hours seemed like minutes before we knew it it was speech and wedding breakfast time. I loved listening to the speeches and thought everyone done a great job. The food was absolutely delicious if only I could have eaten more but my tight dress didn’t allow it haha. The evening was mostly spent in the photo booth or on the dance floor. It was so nice to relax and just let loose in the evening. Micheal and I had the best day, the only problem is we want to do it all again now!
What was your favourite part of the day?
There are so many little moments throughout the day which I loved, but probably my favourite part was watching Micheal let loose on the dance floor. It was so nice dancing the night away with our friends and family.
Any tips you learnt along the way which may be useful for other brides
If you’re organised, you have nothing to worry about. And don’t worry about the weather…you get some great photos in the rain!
