Today’s wedding is the epitome of elegance. Set in the summertime setting of Healing Manor’s wedding barn and grounds, Emma and Ben chose a classic colour palette of cream and green, with summer detail coming through the opulent, luxurious flower arrangements. Please sit back and enjoy this divine wedding, held on 1 July 2023.
The couple first met at primary school, then got together whilst in their 20s. Living in Healing village, a Healing Manor wedding was an obvious choice.
“It’s a very local setting for us as we are from the village. We eat at the Manor regularly and loved the beautiful setting of the barn and the surrounding grounds. We got engaged on a boat in Malta.”
Bride Emma is super-creative, and had a clear vision of her wedding day.
“I achieved a lot on my own and collated a lot of the décor over time. We used The Green Room Lincolnshire for table flowers and décor, Brush and Pen for table place settings and Happycakes Venue Décor for the draping trees and crisp wall.”
The Green Room Lincolnshire also put together the exquisite bouquets carried by the bride and her bridesmaid.
“I wanted a soft summer vibe with beautiful peaches and rusts – a a variety of different textures with added foliage.”
Whilst Ben wore a classic Marc Darcy suit, the bride visited Proposals Bridal Room where she chose her sleek, fitted Sottero and Midgley gown. Featuring long sleeves, a fit and flare skirt and a pared-back front, the dress had a feature back, embroidered and embellished with Swarovski crystals
“From being a teenager, I always had in mind what I wanted to wear on my wedding day. A few months after my engagement, I saw Proposals advertise this dress and I knew it was the one. I had the dress for around two and a half years before I was to be married.”
“I wore a full-length veil with diamantés and lace detail at the bottom. It complimented my dress perfectly.”
Jade Clay Hair & Makeup Artist created the bride’s flawless bridal look.
“I have known Jade for many years through college. She was the only person I could trust for such a big day and, of course, she delivered!”
The bride walked into the Wedding Barn at Healing Manor with her two young children, walking up the aisle together to meet Ben.
After being pronounced husband and wife, the couple headed outside to enjoy the fresh air, tuck into drinks and canapés and capture some incredible newly-weds shots with their photographers, James and Merika Green of James Green Studio.
Back in the Barn, the couple and their guests enjoyed a wedding breakfast and speeches before the evening party began.
The wedding cake, simply decorated with fresh flowers, was made by a friend of a friend. Its three layers were lemon, raspberry and white chocolate, and strawberries and cream. For evening food, Emma and Ben chose an outdoor barbecue for a casual but filling food option.
“Our favourite thing was spending the day with all of our loved ones in one place.”
