Real Wedding Series – Felicity & Adam

April 19, 2017

We are very excited to share this stunning Winter Wedding as part of our #RealWedding Series, from booking The Nottinghamshire, to tying the knot the couple planned their perfect day in only 11 weeks (yes – 11 weeks!)

Felicity & Adam got engaged in November 2016 during a romantic city break in Bruges.

“Adam popped the question on our final night there! Although he didn’t get down on one knee, I was totally taken by surprise and he made it special in his own way which I loved. I was on cloud 9 the whole way home!”

It wasn’t long (about 2 weeks) before an excited Felicity started planning their Wedding and less than 3 weeks later the couple tied the knot in a stunning Winter Wedding on Saturday 18th February 2017 and our Bride Felicity shares their #NottmshireExperience.

 “Adam had a VERY excited bride to be on the Eurostar trip home so I started planning straight away! (Actually I’ve probably been secretly planning since I was a little girl!)

We were lucky, both sets of parents helped us out financially, we’ve been together 4 years, knew we wanted to be married and just didn’t want to wait! Plus we loved Claire at The Nottinghamshire straight away, i’d been to a wedding there before, and with the new Residence Boutique Hotel available to us it all just felt right! I knew it would be a challenge planning a big-fish wedding in 11 weeks but with Claire’s help and reassurance at our regular meetings I just rolled along and smiled the entire time!”

“A venue that could have the ceremony and reception in one place was an important factor for us. The venue also had to have accommodation as a lot of our family and friends needed to stay over. I was also keen to provide good food and wine (always a talking point at weddings – nothing worse than being starving on the dancefloor!). Finally a great location for our fab photographer to take pictures on the day (come rain or shine!).”

“We definitely made all decisions together but Adam being Adam was happy to let me run with most things as I was so excited! I could have run wild with wedding favours and all the extra things a wedding can have…..Claire said there was 3 of us in this relationship – Me, Adam and Pintrest which is an amazing ideas tool… but our budget didn’t allow and the venue is so stunning on its own I didn’t feel we needed anymore than we did. My sister in law bought me a wedding planner for Christmas and that definitely helped keep me on track with dates to plan things by and people to contact etc.”

“I saved money on the flowers, love sign and photo booth by contacting several suppliers and negotiating the price for a short notice booking. Also we are proof it can be done in 11 weeks, be organised and try not to worry about the small details, I had a small meltdown over invitations after we booked and looking back now I wish I hadn’t as no one remembers that small part of our big day. Finally Claire is amazing, she helped make our wedding day so special and we cant thank her enough!”

“Our wedding exceeded our expectations in every way – literally the best day ever!!! The sun was out and even though it was a chilly February day I didn’t feel the cold at all. Claire and the team were absolutely on it, keeping us updated and on time and making sure our guests were in the right places! We had absolutely no worries and could fully relax and enjoy our day. The room looked AMAZING, the food was AMAZING, looking back over the photos EVERYONE is smiling! Something we were worried about was Coordinating the DJ, love sign delivery, post box, & chair cover suppliers when we weren’t there, I need not have worried! Claire contacted all the suppliers and apart from paying them we had very little contact, it was so smooth and all looked fab on the day!”
