The Lawn wedding of Jennifer & David

The Lawn, Rochford is one of our favourite wedding venues.  Jennifer explains why their day was particularly special…

Where did your wedding take place and what made you choose that location?   The Lawn – venue was close to home, which was important to us as we didn’t want friends & family to have to travel far and pay to stay in a hotel. I had also looked through photos of The Lawn on your website and thought they looked lovely.

What was your colour scheme or wedding theme?  Our colour scheme was dark blue and silver.

 What was your dress like and why do you love it?  Silk, strapless A-line gown with some glitz – it was my idea of what a bride should be.

 Tell us about your ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.’   Something old was a ring from my Nan, something new was the dress.  Something borrowed was a pair of earrings from my mum & something blue was my flowers & the sapphire ring from my Nan.

 Where did your groom get his morning suit?  Moss

 Did you buy each other wedding presents?  David bought me a print of our church ~ St Peter & St Paul, Hockley, with our names & date of marriage.

 Can you tell me about your wedding cake?  A three tier ivory cake from Sugar craft in Hullbridge with iced roses and lace (2 fruit and one sponge)

 What was your most useful source of wedding ideas and information?  Wedding Bible by Sarah Haywood 

Tell us about a supplier who provided a first-class service.  Sugar Craft – I simply picked a cake and it arrived on the day without any hassle and looked perfect.  Firework company = Pyro-vision, they were organised, professional and delivered way beyond our expectations.  Francine Spurr Bridal Makeup – such a professional service and so calming on the morning of the wedding.  And of course Jo – Studio Rochford, nothing was too much for Jo from distracting screaming children to fixing my veil! Brilliant service. 

Do you have any advice for future brides?  Take a few moments to look around and take everything in, after putting so much planning in, make sure you enjoy it, taste a canapé, listen to the band, smell the flowers!

 What was your favourite photograph and why did you like it?  So many but the picture of David and I signing the register is my favourite – it’s the one that makes it official and a place I wasn’t sure we would get to given my poor health in the years prior to the wedding. I think I look relieved, happy and hopeful and I love David’s smile.

 Was Studio Rochford the right photographer for you?  Yes, we couldn’t have asked for more. So glad we found you!
