The Glass House, Staining Lodge
Sophie and Ben
Planning your wedding is no easy task. From choosing your venue, your dress, the suits, who will be bridesmaids, best man, the cake, will it be chicken or beef, all way right down to the little details of which font will go onto the place cards for the table plan!
I like to send out a few questions to my brides and grooms about a month before the big day to get to know them a little and to find out which lovely suppliers they’ve asked to help make their day so special.
Sophie and Ben’s marraige was carried out at St Marks, Layton & St Luke’s, Staining, by the wonderful Rev’d, Hannah Boyd. The church is an intimate little place full of charm and character.
Sophie and Ben celebrated their marraige at the beautiful Glass House and Staining Lodge. The Glass House, launched April 2018, is a unique new venue in the grounds of Staining Lodge Golf Course. An elegant and versatile venue with tall windows that wrap around the room. They let lots of light in – with white walls and grey floor, it’s pretty much a blank canvas for any wedding.
This was a day filled with so many happy moments, fun with lots and lots of laughter.
