The historic Casterton Grange Estate in Cumbria may be the setting for today's elegant and intimate wedding. Combining a quintessentially English vibe with nods to Scottish heritage, your day was effortlessly sophisticated and timeless.

Cabin crew member Claire wed pilot Ken on 14 August 2021 within an outdoor ceremony at Casterton Grange, near Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria. The Grange was a perfect space for that couple who have been looking to have an intimate venue where their family and friends could get together to have an entire wedding weekend. The couple allows the beautiful surroundings to take center stage, adding plenty of florals for any romantic summer vibe.

"We decided on a Black Tie theme which all of the gentlemen guests wore. The ladies wore neutral cocktail and evening dresses. It looked so great. I planned the marriage myself with the aid of Anneka Sellers, Casterton Grange's owner. We wanted an area between the house in Manchester and Ken's family in Scotland."

Claire and Ken have worked for that same airline for 20 years and met many times before getting together.

"In 2014, I was on an extended-haul visit to Mexico. When we returned, we dated and Ken proposed on Christmas Day 2018." Here

Ken wore a good black tuxedo from Ted Baker at Moss Bros, having a tartan pocket square to reflect his Scottish roots. The bride decided on a long-sleeved lace wedding dress by having an illusion bodice and dramatic train. It was the FeelTimes dress.

"I knew I wanted timeless and classic, lace but without having to be too twee. The dress was ideal for me. The lace was exquisite and also the shoulders were unusual and incredibly me. They were structured with bell sleeves and also the plunging bodice felt sexy yet classic. I think the rear was my favorite."

"My necklace was gifted by my mum on your day. I also wore pearl and diamond earrings."

The two grown-up bridesmaids wore floor-length, blush pink gowns from FeelTimes with rose gold shoes from Dune London. The page boys were in Roco tuxedos and also the flower girls wore dresses from Next.

"It was the most amazing spot. I walked down that aisle after my flower girls and bridesmaids. Our son Leo walked with my maid of honor whilst my nephew Toby walked with my niece, Maya."

The evening party, held within the fairy-lit marquee, had live music from the band Furious Styles and kicked off having a dance to 'Rule The World' by Take That.

Before that, though, the bride was to be changed right into a sexy, slinky evening dress from Made With Love Bridal.

"I desired to party! This was so simple along with a perfect evening gown for any warm summer night. I must admit I didn't wish to take off my Pronovias gown."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Make a weekend from it! Obtain a highlights video. I've watched mine millions of times. Make a marriage website. Our guests loved it and RSVPs and knowledge are a lot easier to maintain."
