Dan & Abbie’s Solton Manor Wedding
Hey Folks! Today on the blog is Dan and Abbie’s wedding day. Dan and Abbie got married back in September at Solton Manor in Dover. Thank you for a great day ! It was a pleasure photographing your wedding, Awesome day!
Where did you get married? We got married at Solton Manor in Dover. We found it really important to us to find a venue where the dance floor and the bar are close together as we seem to have found men tend to like to stay near the bar area! So we really wanted to get the men near the dance floor (and it worked!)
What was your theme? Our theme was kind of country/rustic, and DAISIES which are my ultimate fave flower, our venue had a country feel and lovely surroundings so i got lots of hessian, wild flowers and bark etc to really match the venue. I didn’t necessarily have a colour theme, but love pastels and daisies!
Tell us about the dress! My dress was quite a straight elegant style with a lot of detail at the back which I just fell in love with, the heavy beading on it made it sparkle which I loved, but I also had a head band which was made up of real dried flowers which went well with my boho/rustic theme!
How did you have your hair and make up? With my hair I also tried to keep that boho with plaits and a loose bun, my poor friend was worrying about doing my hair as I am also a hairdresser so the pressure was on for her, but she did a great job! My make up was subtle just how I wanted it.
What did the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen wear? My bridesmaids were in a mink/grey colour which really suited their skin tones and hair colours! They are multiway dresses which can be worn 15 different ways apparently but my girls all decided they liked a certain way so all had it the same which looked lovely, and really matched their gypsophila and Daisy bouquet. Our 3 best men wore dark grey suits with florals ties we had got from my favourite website Etsy, Dan also had a floral tie but his suit was slightly different with a waistcoat and a herringbone style which he picked!
How do you both feel the day went? We absolutely loved our wedding day, we don’t normally like being centre of attention but on that special day with all our family and friends there sharing our day with us we just loved every minute! We just loved looking around and seeing everyone enjoying themselves and seeing both sets of our family really bond! Best day ever!
