How many brides enter their wedding with one anxious thought hanging over them..."this is so expensive, how am I going to afford to get married. I want it to be the best day of my life." I went into our wedding preparations with the same thoughts, and just a £5-£7k budget for the whole event.
We visited highly manor up a winding country road and on to their private courtyard. It is an impressive house, and in first impressions I thought it would be far out of budget. Inside and outside it was immaculate, with lovely hanging baskets and perfectly mown lawns.
The three main members of staff each had different roles that completed each other...we were made to feel so welcome with nothing being too difficult.
We told them our budget, and rather than laugh and say there was no way they could accommodate us, they did the opposite. They allowed us to have the cheapest possible rate, giving complementary drinks and canapes on arrival. They allowed us to have the house the afternoon before the wedding at no additional cost, and felt like family by the end of the day.
We stayed well within our budget, and that was after flowers, dresses, food, rolls Royce car, cake and photography. That just shows what a brilliant price highley manor was!!
Thank you to everyone there, it was a truly special day. X
