Mr & Mrs White

Jane and Andy White tied the knot at the stunning Bedford Swan Hotel by the river Great Ouse on Saturday 15th October 2016. Find out what made their day so special.

"The Bedford Swan Hotel were fab from start to finish and incredibly professional and ensured everything throughout the day ran smoothly without any hitches."

How did you meet?

Known of each other for over 30 years through work (Andy is one of the company Jane works for stockists) but they had only met once approx. 4 years ago. Two and a half years ago Andy spotted Jane on a dating website and gave her his number. After much persuasion by members of his staff that Jane should give him a call as he was a nice guy she eventually contacted him six weeks later and they went on a date a week after that. They have been together since that first date.

Who popped the question and how?

Andy on Christmas day 2015. Handed her a big box that when opened had the ring inside.

What tools did you use to research your big day?

What made your venue so special?

Wilstead Church as it is where so many family events have taken place. The Bedford Swan as it was central, had plenty of good quality accommodation for travelling guests and provided a complete package. On the day it exceeded all our expectations.

What was the one thing that you’ll never forget about your day?

Coming out of the church to beautiful warm sunshine in Mid October was more than we could have hoped for and then Walking into the drinks reception to Peach Bellinis and a saxophonist playing meeting all our guests. It was amazing and seeing the Coach room looking so beautiful was fabulous.

What is your advice for future brides and grooms?

Try to enjoy the day and if you can, hire a videographer. The day will fly by so quickly that at least then you can relive every moment.

What local suppliers would you recommend?

Beaulicious Celebration Specialists, Concept Events, Celebration Flowers (which is part of the Clophill Flower Club), Arcadia Sweets, Tony Daniels Saxophonist Player, Becky Kerr Photography and of course The Bedford Swan Hotel who were fab from start to finish and incredibly professional and ensured everything throughout the day ran smoothly without any hitches.
