After a surprise night away, Louise returned to their hotel room to find fairy lights and rose petals covering the bed.
A teddy bear on the bed held an engagement ring! Wishing for a traditional church wedding, the couple wanted as many family and friends to share their day. As a result the venue had to be somewhere close where everyone could stay overnight and relax. After visiting West Tower, they knew that all their boxes had been ticked.
“Once we visited for the first time, we knew that no other venue would come close”.
The Style of the day
Initially, Pinterest and Etsy helped with ideas for the styling of their day, the couple chose mint green and white for their big day. The elegant décor of the Ballroom suited her theme perfectly! Louise was kept very busy making all the stationery, centre pieces and favours herself.
Using large vases, candles, white roses and gypsophila for her table centre pieces, she placed personalised tea light holders throughout. Probably the biggest challenge was getting the enormous three tiered cake to West Tower in one piece– but they succeeded! Small gift bags were given to each guest filled with chocolates for the adults and party bags for the children.
Louise took her time to find her dream dress in lace with a full neck. Finally, she chose a full length Mori Lee fitted dress, with beaded belt and lots of detail on the back. Completing her outfit were a cathedral veil, pearl earrings, diamante bracelet and her mum’s necklace.
The men wore grey three piece suits with matching green ties whilst Adam wore an ivory waistcoat ensuring he stood out! Her bridesmaids and flower girl all wore lace topped dresses.
Louise’s dad walked her down the very long aisle of St Oswald and St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic Church. On arrival to West Tower, their guests enjoyed Prosecco and Beer with their canapes. Particular favourites were the Yorkshire pudding, beef and caramelised onion along with the Steak and chips! Speeches followed their traditional wedding breakfast.
In his younger days Adam played in a band, so he always knew that they would play at his wedding!
After their first dance to Bon Jovi’s ‘Bed of Roses’ his old band ‘The Foundry’ took to the stage (including Adam) which everyone loved.
Finally, West Tower’s resident DJ kept the dance floor packed until the early hours!
“Above all, West Tower is one of the most beautiful venues with amazing views and perfect décor. The staff were amazing, always on hand to answer questions or to give advice. The personal service was outstanding, everybody knew our names each time we walked into the venue, which made us feel so special”.
