We meet Zoe and George who got married at Bailbrook House Hotel, surrounded by friends and family.
Bailbrook House Hotel in Bath was the first venue we visited and nothing else we saw compared. The house itself is magnificent and is set in fantastic grounds. It's hidden away behind the trees and is a wonderful sight when you arrive at the top of the drive. The newer building has been added with great consideration to the old house and the house and grounds are the perfect backdrop for some amazing photos!
Our colour scheme was grey and pink. Grey was decided early on as this was the colour of the men's suits so we just needed to decide on an accent colour. We decided on pink which gave everything a lift.
Our photographer was a local chap called Lee Niel. He specialises in reportage style photos and captured our day with the most amazing photos.
Our cake maker was a friend, Alison Mills, whose business is called Silver Sieve Cakes. Alison has made cakes for all our special occasions over the past 6 years so there was no question about asking her to make our wedding cake. She is a very clever lady whose cakes taste as good as they look!
Our DJ was a guy called Marcus who goes by the name Speakerbox. Marcus is an old school DJ who loves his vinyl. We found him online and visited him at his home on a couple of occasions to discuss our requirements. He completely got where we were coming from and the dance floor was filled from beginning to end. He is one clever man!
The service and food were exactly as we requested and would have expected from such an amazing hotel. The staff were very attentive and ensured that everything ran smoothly. Our whole wedding from beginning to end was amazing and we wouldn't change a thing. Everyone told us that the day would fly by so we wanted to make sure that we enjoyed time together as a family along the way. We have a 6 year old daughter who was just as excited about our wedding as we were so we decided that the three of us would stay over at Bailbrook on the Friday before our wedding. We stayed in the John Eveleigh Suite and hid ourselves away, ordering room service for breakfast on the morning of our wedding, savouring every moment together before we went our separate ways to get ready for the ceremony.
Our ceremony was held in the Queen Charlotte room, the wedding breakfast in the stunning Cloisters Restaurant and our large evening party in the Brunel Suite.
