A Unique Love Story

Ben and Lara’s love story is a testament to fate and the power of connection. After meeting online and experiencing a few twists and turns, they quickly became inseparable best friends. Their wedding at Stanlake Park Vineyard was a true celebration of their journey with every detail carefully planned to reflect their shared interests and memories.

NOW! That’s what I call Ben & Lara

The couple had a clear vision for their wedding day, including a colour scheme that reflected their personalities and a running order that allowed them to curate unique experiences for their guests. Music played a central role in their theme, with Ben showcasing his DJ skills and even creating mashups of classic favourites throughout the day. With music being extremely topical it was a great opportunity for her dad’s first band to play an acoustic set at the drink’s reception. They also incorporated their love for board games, books, and childhood nostalgia, creating an atmosphere that was truly unique and reflective of their personalities.

It was important for Ben and Lara to establish a close relationship with their suppliers to ensure a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere on the big day. Over the course of the year leading up to the wedding, their photographers became close friends. They found the perfect match with their videographer, Dream Team Bradley, a recommended supplier from Heritage Venues Ltd, whom Ben immediately connected with.

Creating a visually stunning ambiance was a priority for them, who sought out Stems of London, whose proposal captured their vision for unique, dreamy, and beautiful florals with romantic displays. They exceeded their expectations on the actual day. To further elevate the atmosphere, they opted for Party Lights stunning fairy light canopy.

In summary, Ben and Lara’s wedding was a celebration of music, creativity, and personal touches, where every aspect of our special day reflected their love story and who they are as individuals.

Wanted to start by saying the biggest thank you to you. You were so incredibly kind and supportive throughout the process even with all the last minute changes. Without such a kind and understanding person/ company to work with I’m not sure we would have been able to carry on and finally get married. Please also pass our thanks to Vincent, who was brilliant throughout the day, and couldn’t do more to support us. There were several compliments from our guests on how accommodating and attentive he was.
