On one of the hottest days of the year Ashley and Debbie were married at the beautiful Rowhill Grange Hotel and Spa in Dartford.
We have been together for 15yrs have have our 3 gorgeous kids so our day was just the icing on the cake. It was a day very much about "us" and the things we love, very much a celebration of our lives and our family together.
Where did you find your dress Debbie?
I tried on...sooo many!! All princess style dresses, always knew i wanted one like that, but couldn't find "the one" all a bit too flowery for me, until my maid of honor see one online, sent me a pic, a Morilee gown by Madeline Gardiner, i just had to try it on!! googled stockists and Jacquelines was the only place around here to stock it, tried it on and just knew, beautiful full beaded corset top, sweetheart neckline and princess skirt, it was "the one"
We chose Rowhill as have stayed here a few times and it is just so beautiful, not too big and the gazebo is stunning, the little cottage style building with a thatched roof is exclusive to you for wedding breakfast and reception so all very private and also is 20mins away so easy for our guests to get to. We only looked at one other venue but it did not compare, Rowhill was just perfect for us.
