Wedding preparations began in the middle of last week. The marquee arrived on Wednesday, to be set up on our west lawn among the spring daffodils, ready for Rachael and Jordan’s 113 guest wedding at the weekend. After a beautiful sunny Thursday the weather took a turn and it rained from Friday morning through to Saturday evening. This didn’t dampen any spirits and the wedding party happily decorated the marquee with fairy lights, a vintage suitcase for cards, jam jars filled with flowers and retro vinyl records on the tables.
After a church wedding, guests, followed shortly by the new bride and groom, started arriving at Belmount to a canapé and champagne reception in the house before moving to the marquee for their wedding breakfast. The main course was a ‘carve your own’ lamb en croute with each designated carver being given an apron and a set of carving utensils… a very fun idea for the whole party.
The newly married couple finished the meal off with a triple layered wedding cake, before moving up to our west barn rooms for the party and evening entertainment where there was another cake made with five layers of cheese and adorned with fruit from Churchmouse Cheeses. The night continued with a band and lots of dancing! Congratulations to Rachael and Jordan.

Dear Chris and Gilly,
Thank you so much for all you did to make Jordan and Rachael’s wedding such a perfect and memorable day. We’d like to thank you both for making it so special in spite of all the rain.
