Francesca and Chris first met on a night out with friends back in 2011. The couple wanted a day of fun and relaxation and Whinstone View offered the perfect backdrop for their serene day.
Francesca said: “We wanted the day to be relaxed, fun and for everybody to have a good time!”
Surrounded by countryside, trees and greenery, the couple knew instantly that Whinstone View was the right choice.
“The first time we visited the venue we fell in love with it and knew it was the venue for us.
“In fact, we didn’t even both looking at any other venues.”
The couple fell in love with the beautiful surroundings and relaxed atmosphere, knowing it was perfect for the tranquil day they had planned.
Francesca wore a stunning lace fishtail dress by Allure, from Laura Day Bridal.
The bridesmaids wore beautiful halter neck dresses in shades of blush pink and lilac, which gave off an elegant vibe.
The groom donned a navy three-piece suit from Perfect Partners Boutique, complementing the relaxed vibe perfectly.
Michael Cartwright captured the couple’s big day.
After being recommended Michael and seeing his work, the couple knew that he was the right one for them.
One of the most memorable moments of the day for the couple was the singing waiters.
Francesca said: “We booked singing waiters, nobody knew what was about to happen.
“The scenario was for the waiters to pretend to have a fight and fool our guests.
“My Dad really fell for it and let’s just say there was nearly a real fight!”
“Relax and enjoy the planning and the lead up to the wedding.
“We planned our wedding over a couple of years so we had plenty of time.
“We wanted to do it stress free and enjoy every minute.”
