Clare and Jason’s Wymondham Abbey wedding was elegance personified.
I arrived for Clare’s preparations, at her parents’ home in Wroxham, to a room of excited ladies in matching floral robes and the fabulous Paris on make up duties. I couldn’t wait to see Clare dressed in her Suzanne Neville gown and her reveal was certainly emotional. They’d chosen a colour palette of ivory through dusky pinks and purples with Jason and the Groomsmen styled in grey tails.
Wymondham Abbey is such an iconic building, opulent in carvings and gold detailing. It was the prefect setting for their elegant “I dos”. I loved the choirs Vicar of Dibley arrangement of The Lord's My Shepherd. After the confetti was thrown we spent a few minutes in the tranquil grounds exploring the ancient flint walls. Did I mention is was Carnival Day? Everyone managed to negotiate the road closures and headed to the Assembly House, greeted by the wonderful harp music of Xenia.
The Music Room was beautifully decorated with tall floral vases and ivory lace. Their cake was an elegant bird cage, with pink roses and matching individual cupcakes with a few west Ham touches. We echoed the glitz and elegance with portraits amongst the chandeliers and fountain. After the speeches there was a little surprise for Clare’s mum Maddy. It was her birthday so a cake was presented and Happy Birthday sung. As the evening drew in I left everyone dancing to the sounds of the Joe Ringer Band and creating fun images in the Photo Booth. It certainly was a fairytale day for Clare and Jason. Congrats.
