Matfen Hall: Helen and Robert's Magical Wedding at Matfen Hall


After a romantic meal at the restaurant where they had their first date, there was one more item on the menu. When all of the plates were taken away, Rob got down on one knee and asked Helen to make him the happiest man in the world.

At first, Helen was at a loss when it came to shopping for the perfect gown, like many brides she tried on dress after dress to try and narrow down the style she wanted but nothing felt like ‘the one.’ It wasn’t until she visited Jessica Bennett Bespoke that she could finally ‘say yes to the dress.’
