Swan Hotel, Newby Bridge
Sophia and Lee
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.
Sophia and Lee tied the knot at the historic and super stylish Swan Hotel located on the banks of the River Leven. An absolutely stunning setting and for any wedding on any day.
This was a day filled with so many happy moments, fun with lots and lots of laughter. Here are the details of planning and suppliers that made their day so special.
