Claire & James Westerham Golf Club Wedding Day
Hey Folks! Today’s blog is about James and Claire’s wedding day, which took place at Westerham Golf Club in Kent. James and Claire chose the venue for its stunning views and serene atmosphere.
‘We had a very traditional theme to our day but it was important to us that all of our friends and family and their children could be there on the day. We feel children are often at the centre of some of the best moments at a wedding, like my bridesmaids son getting lost in my dress! We chose a navy colour scheme to hedge our bets for a May wedding.’
Continuing with their traditional theme, James and Claire went for pretty hand tied bouquets held together by lace and satin ribbon, featuring pink and white roses and spray majolica. They also chose to have floral center pieces which were a mixture of hydrangeas and roses, they looked beautiful and were also handed out to family afterwards.
Claire’s stunning dress was an a-line sincerity dress with lace and pearl detailing. The dress had a short jacket with it which gave the outfit an alternative look which Claire loved.
‘I chose my dress simply because it was the one dress that made me feel amazing!’
Claire went for a natural look with her make up to compliment her traditional theme. She chose an up do for her hair as she had a cathedral length veil and needed a style that allowed her to easily remove her veil after the ceremony.
‘The bridesmaids both chose their own hair and makeup and both looked fab too!’
James and his best man both had navy suits with a pink ties to tie in with the flowers. The bridesmaid both had floor length navy dresses with lace detail on the top of the dress, but with a little bit of bling too!
‘We were exceptionally lucky with the weather on the day it was raining while I was having a drink in bed in the morning! The venue being very open was rather windy but this made for an amazing skyscape with passing clouds. We absolutely had the best day and we were so pleased to share it with our friends and family.
After nearly 11 years together to sit at our wedding watching our guests enjoying and sharing our day was fantastic. We wanted a fairly relaxed day and I think we got exactly what we wanted. James made a short speech but in which he spoke about my mum which was totally unexpected, but beautiful.
We have some amazing memories from our day that we cannot wait to see in photo form!’
