When it comes to proposing, all men feel an enormous amount of pressure to do it in the right way, and if your girlfriend owns a bespoke proposal planning company, Henry always knew he couldn’t just go down on one knee in their favourite restaurant.
“Given the job I do, I couldn’t have given Henry a bigger hint as to how I wanted to be proposed to, but he did an amazing job and pulled something beautiful out of the bag!”
Founder of The Proposers Daisy and her partner Henry had just moved into their new home, and Daisy had mentioned one day turning the lock and something magical happening. Well, that magical moment came when she arrived home one day to a candle lit hallway adorned with a trail of rose petals leading onto their roof terrace. On the door to the terrace a huge sign read…..Is this how you pictured your future? Behind that door Henry was fully suited and surrounded by hundreds of candles, lanterns and flowers. It didn’t end there. He then whisked Daisy off to a boutique hotel to celebrate and he’d even booked her in for a nail appointment the next day as he knew she’d want to show off her ring… that’s higher skills!!
With a proposal like that and running her own proposal agency, we knew this wedding was going to be pretty spectacular… and that it was.
Daisy wore a stunning lace vintage style gown by David Tutera for Mon Cheri. Her long tiered veil and soft up-do finished off the style perfectly, adding to her desired classical vintage look. Her bouquet of pale pink vintage roses, astible and hypericum berries mixed in with green foliage carried an air of rustic countryside that matched her style perfectly.
Let’s not forget about the man of the moment! Henry looked extremely elegant and dapper in a navy blue suit with matching waistcoat and bow tie. A large vintage rose matching Daisy’s bouquet for his boutonniere finished off his immaculate look.
The bridesmaids and groomsmen looked equally wonderful. Both parties continued the navy and vintage countryside look with the bridesmaids in beautiful navy and cream lace dresses and the groomsmen matching Henry’s blue tones.
After their religious ceremony, the newlyweds chose The Old Dairy at breathtaking Waddesdon Manor for their reception. This incredibly imposing building was the perfect backdrop to what can only be described as a fairy tale wedding. With Daisy’s pristine planning skills, every last detail was thought out and planned to perfection.
Guests were treated to a a delicious menu of ham hock terrine, slow cooked beef with red wine jus and a mango and passion fruit pavlova surrounded by a rustic countryside decor with an Italian twist in homage to Daisy’s father. A seating plan in pretty vintage photo frames with Italian cities as table names was a lovely way to incorporate their Italian twist.
Trees in rustic pots imported from Denmark were used as table centrepieces not only looking fantastic but also making the room smell incredible and adding another dimension to the rustic styling. Another beautiful touch was a vintage dresser from the 1900’s used to house their guest book. Details from the era such as candles, books, stamps and a quill were perfect additions to this incredible focal point.
Daisy’s mum spent an incredible 10 weeks creating and making their magnificent cake, making each rose by hand to match it to her bouquet. A beautiful labour of love that we’re sure tasted as good as it looked!
As well as cute personalised hangover kits as favours, the couple also donated to BUST charity on behalf of all of their guests. A heart warming and thoughtful idea for something personal that meant so much to them.
We always knew that Daisy’s proposal planning skills would create an amazing wedding and we weren’t disappointed! What started with a unique proposal ended with a fairy tale wedding. Congratulations Daisy and Henry!
