It’s amazing to see that Tracy and David’s beautiful wedding has been featured on the English Wedding Blog. Photography was by Melissa of Elsie Love Photography and the feature focusses on our venue, and the styling, rather than the couple themselves.
It’s not often we get to see a real ‘behind the scenes’ story of a wedding setup, so today is quite special! Our lovely friend and luxury wedding planner Michelle (Elegante by Michelle J) talks us through a beautiful, tropical wedding theme for one of her couples who were married last summer. The finished look is vibrant, joyful, stylish and bursting with summer vibes!
After many months of planning, August 2021 brought flamboyance and flair to Tracy and David’s wedding at Dorfold Hall. I had the very great pleasure of planning, styling and overseeing this vibrant celebration at a stunning venue, for a bride who I’ve known for many years. The brief was effervescent and luminous, much like Tracy’s personality, and I brought in the fabulous Melissa of Elsie Love Photography to capture the lavish details.
Tracy and David loved the idea of a country house with beautiful grounds, to host an outdoor ceremony and drinks reception for their Jewish wedding. Dorfold ticked all the boxes for my couple’s second marriage. It’s an impressive country house setting with a sweeping driveway, tranquil lake and lush gardens, juxtaposed with modern, purpose-built event spaces that are carefully and sympathetically mingled with the old buildings.
In Tracy’s testimonial, she joked;
‘The task was easy – find me a venue in Cheshire with a beautiful outdoor setting, and guarantee me the perfect summer’s day!’. We were lucky with the weather on the day of their wedding at Dorfold Hall, but as ever there was a well drafted plan B just in case!
