We meet Yohan and Mark who decided that Ettington Park Hotel was even better than Hawaii for their wedding day!

"We were originally going to get married in Hawaii, just the two of us on a beach, however my (Yohan's) mother had other ideas! So the hunt was on for the perfect wedding venue. We stumbled across Ettington Park Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon and instantly fell in love with the hotel and it's unique charm.

We were planning a small Spring intimate wedding day for 18 people so being able to have an outdoor ceremony (thankfully the weather was kind to us) and the beautiful Chapel with sun shining through the stained glass windows for our wedding breakfast we had found our dream venue. 

Our photographer Laura Giles was recommended by a work colleague, she travelled all the way from Brighton for us and was brilliant with a super sense of humour, she listened to what we wanted and the end result was beautifully natural photographs - just perfect.

We decided not to have a theme as such, the hotel is so beautiful anyway and we didn't want to deter from this however we had Champagne roses and mercury silver accessories to tie the day together. Damien at Green Claws did a fab job at setting up the evening party venue with pink lighting on the dance floor and the love lights, it looked spectacular.

We had 75 guests for the evening party which was so much fun; greeting all our friends and family after we had married was one of our favourite parts of the day, however walking down the aisle with my dad to marry Mark was the best. We are so glad we decided to get married in the UK and can't thank the team at Ettington Park Hotel enough for giving us the day of our dreams."
