Ellie Sanderson bride Jess and her husband Matt got married in All Saints Church in Marlow before heading to beautiful Danesfield House for their reception. Little did they know, there was a secret connection that proved the venue to mean even more to them than they first thought.
Everyone at team Ellie Sanderson thought the proposal sounded incredibly romantic, here’s what happened… After visiting Windsor Castle Matt took Jess on a private river cruise. The boat was engulfed in fairy lights and really set the romantic tone. On arrival at Oakley Court a candlelit path led them to a table, showered with flowers and more twinkling candles this is where Matt got down on one knee to ‘pop’ the question!
Thoughts on the proposal: “I was so overwhelmed and surprised. I didn’t hear a word he said and actually asked him to say it all again the next day!” – Jess
Jess wore 8039 by Jesus Peiro and looked every inch the classic bride with a modern twist. The high halterneck detail of 8039 is dramatic and different with the open back adding a hint of sexy!
Thoughts on the dress: “I told my dad my dress was black and covered in pink pompoms, which of course, he didn’t believe. But when he actually saw me in my gown, the look on his face is a memory I will hold forever” – Jess
Danesfield House was the perfect venue for Jess and Matt’s wedding. Not only did it fulfil their dreams of a traditional white wedding, there was real connection for the two that made it just that extra bit special. Matt was in the RAF and Danesfield House was the site of RAF Medmenham until 1977. Jess was born in France and remembers being taken on walks around Versailles as a baby, the suite where their reception was help was called The Versailles Suite. It was fate!
