The Duke of Comberland Arms
Here is Mimi and Joe.
They tied the knot in St Margaret’s Church (Fernhurst, West Sussex) last July with their reception being at the beautiful Duke of Cumberland Arms which is a beautiful 15th Century pub just down the road.
The lovely thing with the Duke of Cumberland is the views and the food. Joe has known the Head Chef Simon Goodman for many years so knew the food was going to be amazing (and it was). Each of the 65 guests could choose their starter and main which was then followed by an Assiette of Summer Desserts.
Mimi wanted the Wedding to be romantic, but simple and elegant with beautiful flowers, alongside beautiful scented Jo Malone candles and large vases…….pale apricots, creams and pink avalanche roses were on the tabletops and beautiful glass candlesticks with tall candles lighting up the dining marquees. You could smell the delicate scent of the candles everywhere and one guest commented… ‘it smells like Mimi’s home here’ – Mission Acomplished!
Mimi got ready at the Spread Eagle Hotel, her dress was made by her Mother based on the combination of a few Philippa Lepley designs, the Band was the Alex and Phil Extravaganza, the cake was made by Joe based on a Peggy Porschen Cake which Kate Moss had at her Wedding – (a pyramid of 5 cakes) and I ran a photo booth in the evening!
It was a lovely day and here are a selection of the photos!
