Real life wedding – Gemma and Chris

The beautiful Gemma and Chris got married at Clearwell Castle on Saturday 2nd July 2016!

Gemma was staying in Bridal Cottage the night before with her nearest and dearest, whilst Chris and his Groomsmen arrived at the Castle on the morning to meet and greet guests!

The morning started very overcast but later brightened up making sure the Bride & Groom were able to capture perfect photographs in the grounds.

Gemma got ready in our stunning Bridal Suite before heading down to the Ballroom for the ceremony.

We also loved Gemma and Chris’ design for their Order of the Day sign!

Gemma chose our white birdcages for centrepieces and their three tiered wedding cake took centre stage on the dias during the meal.
