Rosie & Alex

May 2018

Rosie and Alex met through mutual friends when they were just teenagers. They had been together for seven years when Alex proposed at a private lake surrounded by sunlight and swans! 

Searching for the perfect venue

As the search for a venue began the couple had no idea the perfect setting was right on their doorstep. Having always “secretly dreamed of getting married outdoors” they knew The Woodlands was for them as soon as they visited. The couple say, “With the babbling brook and gorgeous treehouse, it felt so relaxed and we could already see all our friends and family enjoying drinks out on the lawn!”

The big day

Marrying in an outdoor ceremony, Rosie and Alex say, “Our wedding was the best day ever! It flew by in a whirlwind of laughter, love and sunshine!”

Being heavily tattooed, Rosie knew that a plain white dress wasn’t for her and started searching for something that would complement her style, eventually finding a perfect floral embroidered dress which suited the surroundings perfectly. Rosie says, “My dress made me look like a woodland fairy and was amazing for photos!”

An ice-cream trike for after the ceremony was a big hit and a family friend played music throughout the day. “The food for our wedding breakfast was fantastic and the spread the morning after was amazing too. Many of our guests stayed over and they dined like kings!” explains Rosie.

Lasting memories

The couple created “so many wonderful memories of the day” that they will “treasure forever!” Particularly, “the feeling of sheer joy” as family and friends all celebrated together.

Advice to other couples

“Let people help you, I was running around all morning setting things up, when I could have relaxed a bit more,” says Rosie, “Don’t fret the small things, in the end it doesn’t matter – your day won’t be ruined by one tiny thing!”


“I would choose The Woodlands ten times over! My cousin is getting married there later this year and we can’t wait to visit the venue again!” explains Rosie and Alex is already dreaming up a wedding party for their anniversary, so that the couple can enjoy The Woodlands all over again!
