Here at The Normans we like to party. And what better time to let one's locks down than New Year's Eve?! Cue Victoria and Martin, our NYE couple, who welcomed 2018 in style ...
The outfits! Bride Victoria dazzled guests in this gorgeous gown, from Accent Original Bridal Boutique - with the kind of trail a bride-to-be's dreams are made of...
Her bevy of bridesmaids, meanwhile, were dressed perfectly for the occasion, pairing floor-length navy gowns from Coast with glam-yet-cosy faux fur wraps.
The chaps cut a dash in three-piece suits - the grey and blue tones tying in with girls' garb to a tee.
Of course, it's not a party without an abundance of decor - cue local florist, Clock Dandelion who dressed every space of The Normans with originality and flair. (The grey accents in Victoria's bouquet make it one of our favourites of 2017!)
Over in the Cow Stalls, the partitions were given the royal treatment, wrapped in the thickest foliage, interspersed with wedding-white roses
We just loved these hanging floral installations by Clock Dandelion too - with one suspended from every Cow Stall bay.
Indeed, we think these deserve a closer look - if only for those delightful dandelion clocks! #weddingflowergoals
After a champagne-fuelled drinks' reception, guests made their way into The Normans Marquee - guided by a gin-inspired table plan (what better boozy theme for New Year's Eve?)
Inside, guests found the starriest of backdrops to the evening event - in the form of paper lantern stars, hung overhead by the couple's florist, Clock Dandelion.
Even the cake glittered: four tiers by Celebrate Country Cake Design comprising Victoria sponge, chocolate sponge, lemon sponge and spiced cranberry and brandy ganache flavours.
As dining came to an end, the tempo reached for the stars, with The English Country Gentlemen taking to the stage
Meanwhile, roulette and Black Jack tables, courtesy of Casino Hire UK added a party vibe for the dance-shy
But as the clock struck midnight there wasn't a soul off the dancefloor, with guests seeing in 2018 - with a little help from party hats, poppers and glitter canons!
Wishing a Happy 2018 - and beyond! - to newlyweds, Victoria and Martin.
