I could not love this wedding more. The colours, the fashion, the love. It has everything!
Mita & Nathan chose Poundon House for their English & Indian fusion wedding and it was perfect. With a stylish wedding ceremony in their Yellow Room and an outdoor traditional Hindu ceremony, this venue was the perfect exclusive-use country house for this gorgeous celebration!
Notes from the Bride
Nathan and I got married at the beautiful Poundon House in Oxfordshire. The family run Country House is set in private grounds boasting amazing views of the Oxfordshire countryside. There were so many reasons why we chose Poundon House; it is a stunning property and expertly run by a lovely family. Despite its grand nature it always felt intimate and welcoming, like you were staying in a family home and Esmond and his family were amazingly accommodating.
It was the first venue we looked at and we simply fell in love with its charm and history. The venue definitely gave us the stunning backdrop and ‘wow’ factor we wanted and provided the perfect “English Country” setting to our colourful fusion wedding.
As we were having two ceremonies, one of the key factors was to find a venue which would allow us exclusive use from the early morning to the late evening. Poundon House provided us with exclusive use for the whole weekend, which was amazing. Our wedding felt like a true escape. Poundon House offered a range of possibilities for your wedding day, each part of the house and grounds is a perfect as the next so it enabled us to plan our day to maximise the space.
We decided to use their Yellow Room for the civil ceremony, as we wanted to our guests to enjoy the vintage charm of the house from inside. This was followed by an afternoon tea in the marquee whilst we prepared for the Hindu ceremony that took place on the patio outside with the countryside as our backdrop. We used the lawn and water fountain area to host the champagne reception and everyone finally moved back to the marquee for the Wedding Breakfast.
With our wedding being a fusion between Indian and English cultures we were in a fortunate position where we could be quite selective with the style of wedding we wanted. We both like to be a bit different where we can so we didn’t really stick to a particular style but we wanted the elegance and charm of an English wedding with the colours and exuberance of Indian weddings. As much as we could we mixed the two elements together, such as our afternoon tea where, along with the more traditional items, we served sandwiches with cheese and chutney, masala tea and a spiced sticky toffee and date cake. We both love a great party and we wanted ours to have a sophisticated edge so I chose a dress that would look just as suitable for the red carpet as a wedding, the groomsmen wore black tie and Nathan changed in to a tuxedo in the evening.
