Mohini and David’s Delightful Mid-Summer Wedding

Weddings - 28.03.19

With a glorious colour scheme, fabulous cultural food and stylish, personalised touches, we love this romantic August wedding of Mohini and David.

The Venue

On the hunt for a breathtaking Essex wedding venue, Mohini and David fell in love with Braxted Park. Setting an August wedding date, they planned a religious ceremony followed by their wedding reception at Braxted Park.

“The venue was everything we hoped for and more. The entrance is incredible, the manor house is beautiful for welcome drinks and the Pavilion is great for the wedding breakfast and evening party.”


Choosing a dreamy summer colour palette of peach with rose gold, the theme of the day was ‘summer florals’. Stylish, thoughtful decorations included a sweet heart table with flower wall backdrop, illuminated letters, a sweetie table and a personalised table plan.

“The venue boasts so much greenery, it was only right to have a floral theme to our wedding. We wanted to create a warm and positive atmosphere where everyone could just enjoy themselves.”


The beautiful bride wore a lace gown from a boutique in Brentwood and completed the look with elegant jewellery and Ted Baker bridal shoes.

“I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on. It’s true when they say, you know it’s ‘the one’!”


Meanwhile, David looked the part in a bespoke suit for the ceremony and black tie for the reception.

And finally, Mohini’s bridesmaids were stunning in coral dresses with nude-coloured shoes.


Following their ceremony in Brentwood Cathedral, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed drinks and canapés on the lawn and in the Orangery back at Braxted Park.

Moving in to dine, Mohini and David continued to delight their guests with Indian traditions, serving a selection of four starters, four main courses and two desserts.

“David is Italian / Maltese and I am Indian, so the menu combined both flavours. The butter chicken was a stand-out dish – the chicken was chargrilled first which was delicious”.

As day turned to evening, a DJ filled the dance floor and the newlyweds danced their first dance to ‘You and I’ by John Legend. Pizza and chips proved a popular choice for evening dining and Indian Dhol drummers played a fabulous finale.


“Walking down the aisle and seeing the face of my future husband who was very emotional.”

As for any stand-out moments? “Organising the group shot. It’s the one time all your guests are standing together with you!”
