Country Rose Fairytale Wedding at Broadoaks

Jun 19, 2018 | Wedding Spotlights

Gone With The Windermere

The date is 29th March 2018, and a new fairytale is about to unfold. This is the magical wedding story of Zoe and John.

From the moment Zoe and John got together, they knew their love for the lakes would be their special thing.

After many romantic and memorable trips to Windermere, it was to be John’s 40th birthday that would be the one that really stood out, as it was right after this weekend that he asked Zoe to be his wife.


A Vision Turned Perfection

Zoe and John knew from the start that their theme was to one of Fairytale magic; it also had to be set in the beautiful backdrop of Lake Windermere, as no other place in the world meant nearly as much to them as here.

With her eyes firmly set on a ball gown adorned with roses and all the beauty of an English Princess, Zoe chose to base all the other elements of hers and John’s day around that.


Broadly Speaking, It Was Always Going To Be Broadoaks

Having been blown away by the beauty of Broadoaks Country House from a previous wedding, when the couple decided to visit for their own, it was an instant win.

As the breath-taking panoramic views of Lake Windermere provided the pair with their dream vista, it was clear Zoe was also blown away by the beautiful bloom of Broadoak’s garden roses.

Knowing they wanted to really treat their friends and family to a sensational experience, it was official: their romantically unique boutique venue had been found.

An Image Of Beauty

When the big day finally arrived, the sense of excitement was well and truly in the air.

When Zoe entered the room, everyone gazed in awe, for this was a bride who was princess personified.

As the beauty of Spring sprinkled outside, it only served to complement the stunning sparkle of Zoe’s exquisite gown, which really was the most perfect dress for their theme.

The reception room was adorned with roses and decorated superbly by the Purple Swan venue decorating company, who captured the essence and magic of their theme to perfection.

A Star In Our Eyes 

To add to the magic of the day, guests were treated to a first dance like no other, as BBC1’s The Voice Runner-Up Jolan sang the pair around the dancefloor.

The excitement of the evening went well on into the night, and as Zoe’s dress continued to sparkle at every angle, the love this pair had for each other was by far the most magical sight of all.

We absolutely loved hosting your magical day Zoe and John, and from all of us here at Broadoaks Country House, we wish you a life that’s as stunning as you are.
