Muncelle & Jonathan – English Country Cottage


Muncelle and Jonathan were married on Saturday 25th June in Calverton, Stony Stratford.

The wedding ceremony took place in the village church, just a few minutes walk from the bride and groom’s home where they hosted their afternoon reception in a large PapaKåta! sperry tent set out on the lawn.

The transition between tent and garden was seemsless, as guests enjoyed a gorgeous view out over the valley, and their country garden flower beds and roses bushes slipped gently in at the marquee’s edge.

Flowers adorened the dinner tables, bloomed out over oak barrels and hung from lanterns in the trees courtesy of Electric Daisy Flower Farm, who also supplied the gorgeous blush bouquets.

Dinner was a grand buffet of American vs English cuisine – celebrating Muncelle’s Southern American routes and Jonathan’s English grounding. Guests dined on an assortment of delicious canapes before tucking in to fresh sea food, salads and roasted meats. The food was made fresh in the cottage’s kitchen by local chefs Roger and John at The Fox and Hounds Whittlebury.

For dessert, a delicious three tiered cake by Sweetness & Delight Wedding Cakes caught everyone’s eye as the centrepiece on the dance floor!

Music flowed in abundance starting with the breathtaking sounds of the Polymnia Choir in church, followed by Ariella String Quartet, Trio & Duoplaying a well selected assortment of classic and popular music during the drinks reception. In the evening, guests danced the night away to live jazz band Down for the Count.

Guests travelled from Florida US and Yorkshire England to join the happy couple in a day which was simply divine.

Oh So Perfect worked with Jonathan and Muncelle for a total period of 9 months to fully plan, design and coordinate the full running of this gorgeous wedding, and it truly was a pleasure.

A huge thank you to Sarah Gawler Photography for providing us with these gorgeous photographs which so perfectly capture the details of the day.

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

Annie and Humphrey were married in a beautiful ceremony in All Saints Church, Woolstone, Oxfordshire on Saturday 8th June 2013, with a reception held in the gardens of the bride’s grandmother’s cottage home. 

Oh So Perfect were delighted to assist with the full planning, set up, break down and on the day coordination of this stunning celebration.

Drinks and speeches were held on the lawn amongst the flower beds, before moving through the orchard into the main marquee for the Marquee Ex A&H (6)

Oh So Perfect’s wedding planner Samantha designed and created this gorgeous vintage table plan using an old suitcase Annie had found in the cottage, belonging to her grandfather.

We worked closely with Annie and Humphrey sharing ideas for theme and design, and Annie kept a scrapbook of ideas which she loved for the wedding. Together we were able to style a divine vintage-style wedding using lots of pieces found around the cottage such as old books, vases and knick-knacks.

These beautiful flowers were put togtether by the very talented Wessex Flowers, who assisted with the styling of the displays and centrepieces. The flowers were simply gorgeous!

How lovely to have a little photobooth set amongst the trees!

It wouldn’t be an Oh So Perfect wedding without an Oh So Perfect pompom! Annie had seen examples of our hand made wedding pompoms in our portfolio and asked us to dot some around the orchard to spread some colour at this wedding also.

The marquee was supplied by County Marquees who did an excellent job using their traditional style

A friend of Annie and Humphrey’s kindly let them borrow meters and meters of exquisite hand-made bunting to use for the wedding. The white lanterns were supplied by County Marquees.

Each centrepiece symbolised something which the couple adored together, or a memory of something they had experienced as a couple – a place, a dish, a film, a book etc. The centrepieces were made up of either crates or bottles and jars filled with flowers from Wessex Flowers, adorned with knick-knacks, quotes and all sorts of items relating to the table’s specific theme.

Guests sat down to tapas already set out on the tables, followed by a delicious dinner of roast beef, which the guests were invited to carve for the themselves, all supplied and served by Crown Catering – yummy!

Dreams to Reality supplied the stationery on the day, whilst Becky Lord Design assisted in custom designing invitations and thank you cards for the bicycle biscuit favours.

Guests enjoyed a delectable rose and pistachio cake from the London Review of Books cafe at the end of the Cake A&H (1)

Oh So Perfect were absolutely thrilled with the feedback and kind comments from guests on the night – the wedding was simply divine and a pleasure to be involved in. We wish all the best to our gorgeous couple, Annie and Humphrey!
