Feeling very lucky
Couldnt have asked for a better day. Adele was so kind and looked after us at every stage. She took our vision and made it a reality and I really felt she understood what we were hoping for in every way. The cottage we stayed in was beautiful and had everything we needed. I will always hold Delapre close to my heart and feel so lucky with our choice of venue and day.
