Aimee & Mike - September 2016

The Proposal

Lisa & MikeAimee and Mike met at work, “Mike was so shy he didn't speak to me for four years!” Aimee told us. Love blossomed when the couple were thrown together on a work project and through Mike’s love of cakes and Aimee's baking expertise! The romantic proposal came when Mike popped the question in a candle lit star dome at Jodrell Bank on valentine's day. 

Choosing Hothorpe Hall

 The couple viewed a number of venues in the area, but Aimee tells us “We got very excited when we saw Hothorpe as it had everything we wanted.” They went on to view more venues, but Aimee explains, “We said to each other "It’s not Hothorpe is it? Nothing else is going to come close now."

The Big Day

saying Aimee and Mike opted for a civil ceremony in The Terrace Room at Hothorpe Hall, where 80 guests watched them make their vows. They had a fabulous theme of chocolate and champagne, and the seat covers were white with brown sashes and white lace overlays.


Hothorpe’s Helping Hand

The big day didn’t start well, with a last minute cancellation by Aimee's makeup artist. Aimee recalls the helping hand of Wedding Co-ordinator Lisa, “Lisa was a big help on the run up to the day. The make up artists assistant canceled at the last minute so we had to create more time to get ready somehow. Lisa came in early and even bought bacon sandwiches!”

Lasting Memories

As many couples say, your big day goes by in a complete whirlwind, and advice is often to take the time to enjoy the day and create memories that will last a lifetime. Aimee's top three memories are filled with love and laughter!

  1. Mike couldn't get my wedding ring on!Photo booth fun!
  2. Having fun and laughs in the photo booth.
  3. The first dance (choreographed) - and nearly slipping over mid dance...!

What They Wore

The bride looked stunning in an ivory lace and organza dress with a sweetheart neckline, and a diamond belt. The Bridesmaids wore strapless mocha dress with a twisted/knot detail. 

Would Aimee & Mike Recommend Hothorpe Hall?

“Yes definitely. Everything was so beautiful and even when we were slipping off schedule Matt helped us to pull it back on track!”
