We meet Martin and Laura who are locals to Chilston Park Hotel in Lenham, Kent, so having grown up in the area, couldn't have married each other anywhere else.
"We both lived near by so have visited Chilston Park many times whilst growing up, whether it be for high tea, firework displays, Easter egg hunts and many other wonderful events that they hold. There is a special elegance and beauty that makes the hotel different from all the rest which is why we knew it would be the place we would love to celebrate our wedding day. The Manor House is old, classic and beautiful with many hidden corners and gems, and the grounds are magnificent - a real English beauty.
We had a subtle pale mint green as our colour scheme, our bridesmaids were in this colour and our groomsmen were in navy suits with matching green ties and pocket squares. We loved the idea of pastel colours that blended in with the natural beauty of Chilston Park, keeping everything very simple and classic. Our flowers were absolutely stunning and were full of different creams and greens to compliment our colour scheme.
We didn't stop smiling and laughing the whole day, there isn't one thing that we would change about our wedding day and do differently. The food was amazing, the entertainment was great, Chilston Park looked beautiful, our guests all had an absolute blast...overall it was one fantastic celebration. If we had to choose a part that we will always remember, it would be when we took a bottle of Champagne out to the lake together, we wanted 15 minutes just the two of us. We sipped Champagne and looked back at the Manor House taking in the moment, we will never forget that.
All of our suppliers were professional and went above and beyond for us. They made everything so simple and easy for us and were so kind and lovely too. We would highly recommend each and everyone of them to anyone!

We couldn't fault a single thing regarding the food and service we had. The food was fantastic and our guests commented on how yummy it all was with a great choice too. The service was superb - the team made sure everyone was always topped up and having a great time. Fiona and Sam made everything work like clockwork and were absolute superstars, we couldn't thank them enough for all they did for us to make our day quite simply the best day of our lives."
