Simon and Nicola
St.Peter’s Church, Upper Arley

The Finer Details
The celebrations started with Nicola arriving in a vintage VW Camper van at the pretty church of St. Peter, located in the heart of the Arley Estate.
With Simon waiting for her at the altar, together they exchanged their vows in front of family and friends in a ceremony filled with love.
Following the nuptials, the couple took a short stroll next door to the magnificent Italian Garden inside Arley Arboretum. Entering through a private entrance, the guests gathered under the midday sunshine for fizz and photographs, capturing the beautiful shades of September and early autumn in their stunning pictures.
The wedding reception was held in a fairy lit Teepee on the lawn in front of Arley House. Festoon lighting guided the guests inside where they were greeted with a fire pit creating a warm and cosy atmosphere.
Long tables were decorated with an abundance of foliage, lavender and hops from Jenny Fleur, who worked her magic with the décor.
The Evening Celebrations
The evening celebrations started with Arley House bar Manager Sophie pulling the first pint of craft beer at our bespoke wooden bar, with guests offered to a range of wines, Pimms, premium spirits and mixers as they arrived. The couple cut their gorgeous cake at sunset, danced their first dance and smiled all the way to midnight. In perfect day terms this ranked as one of the best.
