Emily and Tom

A Spring extravaganza- complete with New Forest ponies!

  • WHY DID YOU CHOOSE PYLEWELL? 

When we first arrived, we knew it was just right! “The one” as they say! For us it was the perk of being able to have the house all to yourself all weekend! Your own exclusive venue that felt super private and special with all of your favourite people staying in one place. Unlike some venues we had looked at, Pylewell didn’t feel like a “wedding factory” where you get churned in and out and you are just a number. They made you feel as though you were the only couple to ever get married there and that’s what we fell in love with! It’s the most stunning, characterful, eclectic and sophisticated venue with the most incredible views! It really does have it all!
The other thing that made us choose Pylewell was the staff! We have never felt so welcomed by a group of people in our lives and they couldn’t have been more attentive to our every desire and need. We instantly clicked with Aby (our wedding planner) and it felt like having a best friend alongside you the whole time during the planning process (we called her our extra bridesmaid).

Honestly, just

a dream!!!

  • TELL US ABOUT YOUR MOST MEMORABLE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY? 

It 100% has to be our first dance! I am a dance teacher in my spare time and own my own dance company. I couldn’t let this opportunity pass without going all out so we put on a big 10 minute “first show”. The groomsmen were in it, the bridesmaids were in it, my dad was in it and my dance company came along to surprise everyone with a grand finale. There was dancing clouds, indoor fireworks, the whole shebang and it was honestly one of the best moments of my life. Dancing on stage with my best friends and giving Tom the biggest surprise was something I will remember forever. Thank you Pylewell and All Parties and Events for making it happen!!

  • TELL US YOUR VISION FOR THE MARQUEE AND STYLING? DID IT LIVE UP TO YOUR EXPECTATIONS? 

It honestly surpassed all expectations! I wanted a real pop of colour and a vibrance to match the energy of the day and nudo really hit the ball out the park. I went with coral pinks and salmons to stand out from the blue wall and wow did they made it pop! Complete with a wooden mountain my dad had made and a light up “The Borders” sign which Tom had made and the whole look really came together. We were the first couple to get married outside under the sail so I was super excited to style it all up. We absolutely LOVE the outdoors and climbing mountains so for us it was really important to weave that into the styling. We had a giant wooden mountain at the end of the aisle and nudo styled the flowers either side of the aisle carpet with incredible urn vases. It was honestly sensational.

  • HAVE YOU GOT ANY FEEDBACK ABOUT THE PYLEWELL TEAM? WE WOULD SO LOVE TO HEAR IT.

They are the most incredible people ever and do everything in their power to make you feel like a king and queen. I have never met a group of such attentive and caring people who genuinely want you to have the best day of your life. From Georgia who served us breakfast to the groundsmen who made the gardens look so beautiful, every single person went above and beyond. We honestly didn’t have to think about anything because Pylewell did and thought about it all for us!

Aby was actually the dreamiest of humans and brought so much love, light and positivity to our wedding from start to finish! She is a real EXPERT! And she literally has everything down to a T. I have never met such a super organised wonderwoman and she needs a medal for everything she does! Thank you Aby!

WHAT’S YOUR TOP TIP FOR ANY FUTURE PYLEWELL COUPLE?

Go all out! There is nothing that Pylewell can’t make happen and they really encourage you to live your visions out fully! The venue is so so stunning and the team is so capable that no idea is too big or crazy!

My other advice would be go for a black tie dress code! We were soooo happy we did this as it suited the tone and grandeur of the venue so perfectly. Everyone looked so smart and it really just added an extra bit of class to the day!
