When local couple Cathy and Toby first came to visit Hallsannery, I knew theirs was going to be a truly gorgeous ‘wedding weekend’. As a talented make-up artist ‘in the business’, Cathy had seen many beautiful weddings, and had a clear vision of what she and Toby wanted from theirs.

And, as you can see from the photos, their Hallsannery wedding did not disappoint. With a stylish, natural yet stunning look in mind, they chose their suppliers with care.

Adorning the house with ‘in season’ flowers by Heather at Church Park Flowers, the spiral staircase became a vision of white bridal blossom, with eucalyptus providing the most glorious scent as Cathy made her entrance in an oh-so-elegant dress by Anna Hougton of Bideford. With the bridal party dressed in contrasting blue, the Hall became the ultimate in intimate settings for their Ceremony, as, surrounded by friends and family they exchanged their vows. Signing the register in the curve of the stairs was particularly moving and beautiful – a thoughtful touch to a magical Ceremony.

The newly married couple then treated their guests to canapes on the rhododendron-bedecked East Lawn and on the front terrace overlooking parkland and Estuary beyond, before enjoying a fabulous wedding breakfast laid on in the chandelier’d Dining Room.

The festivities moved seamlessly from day to night… and as the photos (by talented photographer Jim Wileman attest), the day was a fitting testament to the happiest and most beautiful of couples!
