Kristina & Gareth’s Wedding

Golden September sunlight coated Fetcham Park when Kristina and Gareth joined us at Fetcham Park for their wedding reception. They’d opted for a local church wedding ceremony, so we were delighted to welcome them to the house as a newly married couple for the first time.

Of course, this was the end of summer in 2012, so this wedding was extra special as Gareth and Kristina were the very first newlyweds to use Fetcham for their wedding after our launch. They had visited a lot of venues before they found Fetcham and were about to put down a hefty deposit on a London venue when Kristina stumbled across coverage of the house on a wedding blog. It was particularly exciting to work with a couple from overseas and a joy to see their cultural traditions incorporated into their celebrations.

Using a selection of some of our Laura Loves suppliers, including Couvert Hire’s beautiful gilded and grape coloured tableware, Jay Archer’s pretty pink florals, a pale pink tower of lemon, almond and red velvet flavours from Cakes by Krishanthi and the sublime brush work of make-up artist Ana Milena Ospina, Kristina and Gareth made sure that they celebrated married life in style!

And as for the happy couple?

I wanted to add my thanks for all your help in the planning for the wedding and for the day itself which couldn’t have gone better!

Your advice, guidance and creativity have meant the world to me as we live in a different country and it is far more difficult to organise the perfect day.  Gareth and I are over the moon with our choice of wedding venue: Fetcham Park is a very special place for us and I have loved every minute spent there.

Kristina and I felt very special being the first couple at such an amazing venue. One thing that we will always remember amongst our happy recollections of the day is the charged, but intimate and relaxed atmosphere throughout the celebration – which was in large part down to the Fetcham Park setting itself, and the Parallel Venues team.
