Rosedew Farm Wedding - Charlotte & Daniel
We have been together for over half our lives, we meet on a school skiing trip to Austria at 14 years old. It was a long 36 hour bus journey but I think it only took us until Bridgend to find a seat next to each other. We finished School & College and then both went onto University which involved plenty of drunken nights out in the Capital. Charlotte Graduated in 2012 and Dan shortly after in 2013. We both found our first full time jobs and it wasn’t long until we bought our first home in 2014. A few years past, a few holidays later but it was the most special holiday of all - A week in Sir Lanka followed by a week in the Maldives where Daniel popped the question in July 2017.
Within 2 months (which included many venue viewings) Rosedew Farm was the only choice for us, We visited the night before our Engagement party, it was August Bank holiday weekend, the sun was shining and we could picture exactly how our day was going to be!
We had 18 months to plan, a lot was done within the first few months but then we decided to move home in between so the rest went on hold. We have had the most manic 18 months but it has been totally worth it. Now all that was left to do was to get married. The Venue is amazing which included the opportunity to stay for 2 nights in the cottages, Lodges, Shepherd’s Huts. The Friday we all gathered in the courtyard where the drinks were flowing and the singing was in force, we arranged with Rosedew to serve Curry that evening and it was amazing.
Next our Wedding Day, It was a very early start for the girls but the morning flew by accompanied by plenty of bubbles and the boys shared a number of beers and Whisky’s together. We served Canapés outside after the ceremony whilst Rebecca Hurn sang beautifully, our food included Rib eye steak and a trio of Lamb which was cooked to perfection by Farmers Pantry. The Speeches were beautiful and included so many lovely words off Charlotte’s Dad, The best men and Daniel. This also involved a song from Daniel which was all about Charlotte where everyone joined in on the Corus – it was wonderful! The band were fantastic, followed by Anthony Tutton Djing who had the place bouncing - we spent the whole evening in the air!
Our Wedding Day was perfect, it was the best day of our lives…so far. We had the most perfect weather as the sun shone all day over the Easter weekend. We partied hard over 3 days and will always remember this special moment in our lives.
