Ben and Becky had a beautiful reception on Sunday 25th October 2015.
Tell us about the Proposal
We got engaged in the Maldives in June 2013, on Bandos Island.
Why did you choose The Montagu Arms Hotel for your wedding?
We wanted a small intimate wedding venue with character and charm, where we could enjoy our special day. The grounds of the Montagu Arms made for lovely photographs and memories we will cherish.
Tell us about the Bride's outfit
I wore a beautiful Ivory over Champagne Mori Lee wedding dress by Madeline Gardner, customised with an antique waist band.
Tell us about the ceremony
Our ceremony was held in the Oakwood room which was the perfect setting. We loved having our pictures taken in there!
Tell us about your reception
We had a Champagne and canapés reception immediately following the ceremony. The weather was glorious which allowed us to explore the hotel grounds and the Beaulieu river nearby with our photographer, Helen.
Our wedding breakfast was delicious, some of the best food we, and our guests, had ever tasted.
What flowers did you choose?
Mala, the Montagu Arms florist, prepared our flowers. She provided a beautiful bouquet, table centre pieces and button holes that were exactly what we wanted. They included a mixture of pastel pink roses, ivory freesias, bouvadia, pink astilbe and seasonal light blue flowers.
Tell us about the décor you chose
We went for a pastel theme of greens, blues and pinks. We decorated the wedding breakfast table with wooden heart confetti, white tealights, laser cut place cards and homemade favours.
How do you feel the day went?
Everything was well organised and ran smoothly. The hotel staff were always on hand and attentive. Faultless!
Any particular memories from your Wedding Story that stand out that you would like to share?
We had a fantastic day and will be forever grateful that we chose the Montagu Arms as our wedding venue.
