Rochanne and Jamie’s fairytale wedding

Rochanne and Jamie met online four years ago and instantly knew they were the ‘real deal’.

After a romantic proposal under the stars in a game reserve in Kenya, Rochanne said ‘Yes’.

Their first step was creating a scrap book containing wedding inspiration and ideas to produce the perfect wedding day.

Rochanne Webster and Jamie Spalding had always visualised a fairy-tale wedding. The moment they saw Leez Priory they knew that it was the venue to fulfil that dream.

Rochanne says the stunning Tudor mansion was just the kind of venue they were looking for. “It was eveything I had dreamed of as a girl growing up, the moment i drove up to Leez Priory and saw the flag flying in the distance I just knew…I got out of the car and literally said wow, this is it!”

“As a little girl all I ever wanted was to have a horse drawn carriage for my wedding day.”

Jamie made sure that Rochanne got exactly that! As a surprise he took her to pick out the horse and carriage she had always dreamt of.

“I was touched that he had made my childhood dreams come true”

The horse and carriage was one of many surprises on their big day. A very close friend made their wedding cake as a gift, and surprised them by finishing it off with a topper which was their much-loved dog Lola.

The very talented ‘Lavenham Photographic’ who appears on our recommended suppliers list was the photographer. “He was a true gentleman.”

There were more surprises later in the evening for the bride and groom. “My mum and dad knew I always wanted Fireworks, so they arranged the display for us. this truly was a perfect way to finish off the best day of our lives.”
