Kelly and Lee had such a beautiful Christmas wedding at Eastwell Manor. It was a crisp and cold day on Friday, but that’s everything you expect for a stunning Christmas wedding. Think warm and cozy log fires set within an old country hotel. The old oak walls were decorated with stunning Christmas decorations and a huge Christmas tree taking center stage by the main staircase. Kelly and Lee’s intimate wedding was just perfect. Exactly as they had dreamed and a time to enjoy with their closest family and friends. Check it all out below.

How did you guys meet, tell me all?
We met at work, we were friends for some time before we finally got together.
How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?
We got engaged in Monaco! A beautiful sunny day after taking a walk around Monaco’s cathedral and then for a walk in the beautiful Jardins de Saint-Martin overlooking the Mediterranean sea.
What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?
We have always liked Eastwell Manor, it just has a lovely feel with beautiful rooms and grounds and can cater for any size wedding. Our aim was to have an intimate Christmas wedding and we felt Eastwell Manor had the right feel.
What was the inspiration/theme of your wedding?
Christmas! We love Christmas, Lee especially! Our theme is very much around winter berries, Christmas foliage, candles, white roses. Our invitations set the scene for what we were hoping to achieve.

Wherever You Will Go – by The Calling. We just love the lyrics and it means something to us as a couple.
