A Surprise for the Bride!


Well as you can imagine, with the warmer months creeping in, the number of weddings begin to increase. So this month has been a busy one so far and it’s only set to increase as we go into June! Luckily for Molly our owl ring bearer, we managed a few days holiday just after this wedding we’re featuring today, to rest her up in advance of the busy season!

On Saturday 15th April we were at the amazing Shustoke Farm Barns in Coleshill. The venue is just 20 minutes outside of Birmingham and Coventry but you feel like you are a million miles away tucked into the countryside.

Molly had been booked by the parents of the groom Mick and Wendy; and although Rob the groom knew, it was a complete surprise for his wife to be Jennifer!

The staff at Shustoke were extremely helpful in aiding the surprise and we managed to keep Molly a secret from not only the bride but all of the guests as well.

Rob had two best men; Simon and Jake.  Simon received Molly with the rings and then passed them to Jake to give to the Registrar, which they both did perfectly. Jennifer’s face was an absolute picture of surprise and delight!

After the ceremony Rob and Jennifer had photographs with Molly and then she met their family and friends, who were invited to hold her if they wished. Everyone enjoyed meeting Molly and were really interested in finding out more about her.

The next day we received a lovely email from Mick and Wendy, thanking us, but of course mainly the star of the show Molly!

“Just wanted to say a big thank you from Wendy and myself for your services yesterday. We had a few last minute nerves that we had done the right thing by surprising the bride but we have had a text from Rob and Jennifer today to say that Molly “absolutely made their day” so I don’t think we need have worried. Everyone we have spoken to has mentioned Molly as being a highlight of the day. We thought you were professional and courteous and were most impressed by the time you took to spend with people informing them about Molly. She is a star isn’t she?! Many thanks once again for making a special day even more special and we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone. Wendy and Mick Clements”

We thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this wonderful wedding at the stunning Shustoke Barns, and thank you Mick and Wendy for your wonderful email. We wish you all the very best Rob and Jennifer, for your future together as husband and wife, it was a huge pleasure to be a part of your big day.
