We meet Bex and Tom who had a romantic Christmas wedding at Rhinefield House Hotel deep in the New Forest national park.
"We picked Rhinefield House Hotel in the New Forest for our wedding because it is close to my (Bex) parents’ home where I grew up and we both loved the feel of the hotel especially for a Christmas wedding. We wanted exclusive use, this isn't available in December but we were so pleased we were able to get the final weekend in November.
The Grand Hall in this country house wedding venue offers its own piece of Westminster, being a replica of London’s Westminster Hall, with intricate carvings, oak panelling and striking windows overlooking manicured lawns, this meant we didn't need a theme, the venue is stunning in its own right so the touches I added were traditional and classic.
Our suppliers were great!
Dan Bold Photography was absolutely amazing, such a professional and just a great guy, his second photographer Will Wareham was also just fab!
Our florist was extra special - Fiori by Lynne based in Hampshire, she does many weddings at Rhinefield - amazing attention to detail and she spent a great deal of time with me before the big day on perfecting everything - she did all the candle decorations too.
My wedding dress is a Caroline Castigliano - I got it from Exquisite of Winchester, the veil as well - the girls in there are brilliant.
Bridesmaid dresses were from House of Fraser.
DJ HAMMY was amazing! He’s very much a request based DJ, he only played songs we'd approved on a list or songs that our guests requested.
Our toastmaster Mike Judd was unbelievable at helping make the day flow seamlessly. I’m so glad we chose to have him as the team at Rhinefield recommended!
The service on the day at Rhinefield was exceptional, nothing is ever going to go perfectly 100% of the time at a wedding but the team at Rhinefield certainly tried their best to meet that! The food was great, both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. Lots of guest commented on the pulled pork burgers when they had the munchies at 9pm! The breakfast in the morning was also amazingly well staffed, more than enough food and wonderful service. We couldn’t have asked for more.
The best part of our day - definitely the disco in the evening. We danced all night and had the best time!"
