Notes From This Modern Revelry
Laura & Alan:
We’ve been together for 7 years and are getting married ourselves this year (whoop!) at one of Coco Wedding Venue’s recommended venues no less. We definitely wouldn’t describe ourselves as traditional – in life and in business.
Our words to live by are ‘Love Like Hell Yeah’ – love that doesn’t apologise, is a little bit wild but most of all is modern love. This Modern Revelry exists for people who don’t want shot after shot of ‘this happened, then this’ but want to capture the feeling of the day: the fun, the style, the details and most importantly – the party. With a vibe that’s more at home in a music video than a party political broadcast.
When I first heard of Leila & Brendan they were searching for the perfect wedding venue, just a few days later they had fallen head-over-heels for Brympton House, a grand yet relaxed wedding venue in Somerset.
Rebecca Goddard Photography captured these beautiful shots as part of their engagement shoot and I wanted to not only share these stunning images, but also to share Leila & Brendan’s love story; for each other and for their wedding venue.
Over to the Bride-to-be…
Notes from the Bride-to-be
The proposal… We got engaged last November on a surprise trip to Bruges after being together for just over 18 months. I was convinced that Brendan was going to propose on a holiday to Croatia the month before so when he didn’t I was gutted and decided not to think about it again! So when he asked me it was a total surprise and I was over the moon.
The Wedding Venue search… With Brendan being Australian, he really liked the idea of a grand old English manor to wow the guests coming all the way over from Australia whereas I wanted somewhere laid back and relaxed, somewhere which wouldn’t feel too ‘stuffy’. This made it hard to agree on a venue initially as we couldn’t seem to find the perfect compromise! We also wanted somewhere that guests could stay for the whole weekend as we want to make the wedding last as long as possible as it will be a rare occasion to get our two families in the one place! Plus, with both of us working in interior design it was important that the style of the venue reflected our taste and this proved a lot harder than we first expected.
Considered to be the most beautiful house in England, the history of Brympton starts in the 13th Century when the land was purchased by the D’Evercy family.
The house is set in 33 acres of stunning parkland with a magnificent lake that perfectly mirrors the South Front – a stunning backdrop for your very special day.
