The team were thrilled to hear this amazing feedback from the new Mr & Mrs Brown:

Where do we start! We want to say an incredibly massive THANK YOU to both you and the whole team at Lodore. Our wedding was more than we ever dreamed and that’s all down to the amazing team who made it run so smoothly and SO RELAXED all day. It truly was perfect.

Everybody went the extra mile for our wedding party, and it has been said how incredible the whole team was. Even my sister was blown away when my flower girl’s Woody & Jessie toys were given a highchair to sit in at breakfast. Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks so much again, you are incredible at what you do.

The loved-up pair met over ten years ago on Rebecca’s birthday just a couple of weeks after Kyle initially spotted her on New Year’s Eve. They danced and talked all night, not realising where their relationship would take them or that they had just met their future husband and wife.

Their first trip away came at Christmas time with a visit to London, it became a yearly tradition to attend Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. So, what better way to propose?

Before making their way to Winter Wonderland, Rebecca & Kyle would have a few drinks, one of their favourite haunts being the rooftop bar in the Sea Containers hotel. Upon arrival, Rebecca went in search of a table whilst Kyle went to the bar…to ask the barmaid to record the proposal. ‘She didn’t get a chance, of course, because he came back to the table so fast and got it over and done with; she was busy getting us a bottle of Champagne!’ – Rebecca Brown.

Newly engaged, the couple enjoyed a romantic night at Winter Wonderland without their phones, wrapped up in their own bubble as Kyle recounted stories of his proposal planning.
