Emily and Pete had a beautiful but very wet Hoath House wedding in Kent this week! Even with the rain falling continuously, these two didn’t stop smiling throughout. Set in truly gorgeous grounds, Hoath House certainly made up for the wet weather outside and created a very warm and homely wedding for this lovely couple. Check it out below.
First names: Emily & Peter
Ages: 28, 31
Wedding date: 27 June 2017
Venue: Hoath House
How did you guys meet, tell me all?
I was 19, Pete was 22. Nearly a decade ago now! Time flies. I was a young, bit too cocky a teenager, that walked up to a stranger in a club, told him he was cute and walked off. Pete chased after me and we talked until the club kicked us out. We went on a date a couple of weeks later to a video games exhibition and he won my heart,
How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?
On the 10th October 2015, we went for a picnic on a typical overcast English day near the Serpentine in Hyde Park and got engaged. We chose the ring together from Grays Antiques in Mayfair.
What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?
We only viewed one and fell in love straight away. We googled a fair bit but found this was the best for all we wanted on the day.
What was the inspiration/theme of your wedding?
Sunflowers, blue glitter and country chic. Sunflowers because they’re lanky and colourful like us, glitter because Emily loves it and country because of the venue.
What is your first song and why?
You’re My Best Friend by Queen played as Emily walked down the aisle. Happy by Pharrell Williams as our first dance song. No specific reasons, we just really like them.
What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?
Spreadsheets are your friend. Create budgets, try to stick to them and don’t sweat the small bits and bobs.
