Amy & Neale’s Wedding at Burley Manor

Amy and Neale got married at Burley Manor in the New Forest with their ceremony and reception held in the barn and adjoining marquee.

The day was super colourful and the abundance of flowers provided by Jennifer Pointer Flowers acted as a lucky charm in pushing the rain clouds away (we only had one, albeit quite heavy, downpour despite heavy clouds looming for most of the day).

As well as having free access to ice creams provided by the Brock Ice trike, guests were served Afternoon Tea with a scrummy selection of cakes, sandwiches and scones. The beautiful flowers and decorations in the barn gave everything a lovely bright and Summer-y picnic feel.

To work off all those cakes and ice-creams Blue Juice Band provided a superb dancing soundtrack for the evening and entertained everyone with a great selection of tunes.

Amy & Neale’s Wedding Prep in The New Forest

We’ve been keeping an eye on the Burley Manor Hotel for a while now. It’s had rather a lovely re-fit and we’re lucky enough to be heading there soon to join Neale and Amy for their wedding. They showed us around the hotel and Esdaile Barn where their ceremony will take place.

Burley is one of my favourite places and I’ve always loved heading over there. The setting is beautiful and from the front of the hotel you can always spot plenty of deer. I also believe you can get the best ice cream in the world in Burley (New Forest Ice Cream whippies with lemon sherbet – yes please!). Needless to say I’m always happy heading over there.

After looking around the hotel together we made our way to the Burley Cricket Ground and woodlands around there for some photos.
