Love is all around

Lisa and Gareth shared the joy with their loved ones on their special day at Easthampstead Park.

Although Boris Johnson's cable car hasn't helped solve London's transport problems, it turns out the Emirates Air Line is good for something: marriage proposals! After 18 months of happy dating, it was high above the Thames that Gareth got down on one knee and proposed to Lisa. “It was a total surprise,” says the bride. “It took nine months to organise the wedding, but everyone involved worked really hard and were fantastic at communicating with each other.”

Here the bride tells us more about their special day...

We knew Easthampstead Park was where we wanted to get married. The rooms flowed nicely together, and having accommodation on-site was a bonus.


Love is all around: Image 2I visited Sophie Grace Bridal when one of the designers from House of Mooshki was there. I chose the dress I wanted and requested alterations. I felt amazing in it and wanted to wear it no matter what.

Love is all around: Image 2b I chose to wear a tiara, veil and hairclip because I couldn't decide between them.

Once we saw the outside area, we knew we wanted to get married there if we could.

We sent a colour swatch from the seat ties, which matched the colour of the bridesmaids' dresses, and asked for roses and butterflies. Each tier was a different flavour.

The DJ, Darren, was friendly and helpful. He covered the music throughout the day, from the ceremony to the cheesy disco classics from all the ages in the evening!
