Love at first swipe

Caroline and Rob first met six years ago on an online dating app and their first date was in London where they met up for a drink and enjoyed a walk by Tower Bridge.

 "Rob proposed to me on the 17th of October 2020 on top of Mam Tor, one of the highest points in the Peak District," Caroline tells us. "We have been to the Peak District many times together before including our first time away together six years ago, so it's a very special place to us. After a three-hour hike, Rob asked me to take a picture of myself looking into the distance and as I turned backaround, he was on one knee which was such a surprise! He was so nervous that I had to remind him to put the ring on my finger!"

Kissing couple Here, the couple tells us about their special day at De Vere Latimer Estate in Buckinghamshire which was decorated with a pretty blush pink and cream theme with a hint of green.

On the steps

De Vere Latimer Estate was the first and only venue that we viewed. We visited it after we discovered the pictures on their website and both fell in love with the place.

Stunning scenery

The manor house and the stunning scenery across the Chess Valley are beautiful.

Ceremony room The stylish ceremony room is decorated with panelling and chandeliers which made it feel elegant and classy.

We placed lanterns down the aisle for a romantic ambience and the ceremony room already featured beautiful décor so it didn't need a huge amount of decoration.

Bride laughing

The ceremony, when we became husband and wife, was a memorable moment for us both.


During the ceremony, I accidentally said Rob's middle name during our vows instead of his first name, which also happens to be his dad's name!


For our favours, we had heart-shaped mints in small, personalised tins decorated with pink flowers.

Place names

Our table plan, table names and place names were designed by a company that works regularly with our venue. We chose the blush pink, floral-printed design.


For our centrepieces, we chose flowers that matched the bridesmaids' bouquets of blush pink and cream varieties with a hint of greenery.


The rest of our flowers followed a soft romantic theme with hints of green showcased through the eucalyptus.


We chose a simple, elegant white cake covered in icing and decorated with silk flowers matching the colour scheme.


Our venue provided the catering which tasted delicious. Everyone enjoyed the canapés served during the drinks reception and we chose roast chicken for our main course and a profiterole tower for dessert.

Bride My mum and I visited a few wedding dress shops to find the one. I knew that I wanted an elegant fitted gown with a long train and a low back so I finally chose a beautiful dress called Marianna from Blue by Enzoani.


I kept my accessories simple by wearing a pair of drop earrings to not take away the focus from the dress.


I also wore a cathedral-length plain veil to finish the look.

Groom Rob wore a three-piece blue suit with a sky-blue tie – he looked so handsome!


The groomsmen wore the same three-piece suits as Rob teamed with dusky pink ties to match the bridesmaids' dresses.


Our bridesmaids wore pretty blush pink multi-way, floor-leng th dresses.

Band We hired a live band called Railroad Kin for our evening reception who was one of the best suppliers that we chose. One of the members of the band also played the saxophone which was a huge hit with our guests because he performed on the dancefloor getting everyone into the spirit of things. Watching everyone singing and dancing together was a wonderful moment that we'll never forget.
