Hal & Annie | Caswell House winter forest themed intimate wedding
Oxfordshire wedding videographer
19th December 2020 Hal & Annie A Caswell House winter forested themed intimate wedding
Tell me a bit about the two of you, what do you guys do? How do you spend your time?
Annie & I love to eat and drink. We love walking in the countryside with our puppy and stopping for local pub visits. Love the theatre and generally quite social people.
How did the proposal go down? (all the gushy details, I love this bit!)
I took Annie on our anniversary weekend to the Amare Hotel in Marbella. Two years before Annie and I bumped into each other on two separate holidays in Marbella, I was staying at the Amare and “wooe’d” her on their roof top terrace. I took her back there in 2019 and organised a candle lit dinner on the beach where I dropped the knee.
How did you choose your wedding venue(s)?
Hal use to work in the events industry so it was critical we chose somewhere Hal didn’t know that well. Caswell he had been too only once and after a few other venues we saw, we fell in love.
What sort of experience do you want your guests to have?
An intimate day with the finest food and drink with laughter and smiles.
Can you describe some of the details and stylings, does your wedding have a theme?
The theme is Winter Forest (Not CHRISTMAS). Lots of greens, golds, lighting and wood vibes. We have six 6ft copper led trees that will be in the ceremony as well as the wedding breakfast.
What was the hardest decision during the planning?
Figuring out how to get married in COVID times.
What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?
Use the venues suppliers, it keeps the venue happy, it means your supplier knows the venue and all the do’s and don’ts, it just creates a better atmosphere on the day.
