‘I wanted everything to be fluffy, floaty and smelling gorgeous,’ states today’s bride, Stacey. A combination that sounds utterly wonderful to us. Who needs a wedding theme anyhow, when you have such a distinct vision for your big day?
Tying the knot at the fabulous Heaton House Farm in May 2017, Stacey and Vinny were keen to host a springtime wedding and make the most of the stunning English countryside. And the Cheshire-based venue, we think you’ll agree, more than fulfilled this brief! Greenery and white flowers with the scent of freesia and eucalyptus set the scene inside the venue, with the addition of candelabras, hanging crystals and sequin table runners transforming the space come nighttime.
And something especially for the grooms up north – prepare for some of the most memorable groomsmen photos you’ll ever see, as the boys pay homage to their favourite superheroes on the day, too!

stacey says: We got engaged during a trip to London in July 2015. Vinny popped the question whilst we were having drinks in The Shard. I didn’t have a clue it was about to happen and initially I thought it was a prank! We spent the rest of the day celebrating with lots of fizz, ending it by seeing Ed Sheeran in concert at Wembley. It was the best day ever!
We chose 30th May 2017, as our wedding date mainly because I just don’t think you can beat a spring wedding in the English countryside. The extra-long bank holiday weekend for our guests was a bonus!
Our ceremony and reception were both held at Heaton House Farm, just outside of Macclesfield. It was the only venue we looked at and we fell in love with it as soon as we walked into the oak beamed entrance barn. The outside space around the venue is just incredible, surrounded by fields, flowers and wildlife, with views of Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire. You feel like you are the only people around for miles.
We didn’t really have a theme, I just knew that I wanted everything to be fluffy, floaty and smelling gorgeous! Although, the boys did have their own superhero theme with the cufflinks and socks that they wore! Our colour scheme was mainly white with navy blue to keep things classic and timeless.
I chose a strapless ivory dress with a sweetheart neckline, lace bodice and tulle skirt by Wtoo by Watters from Penny Gray Bridal in Oxton, Wirral. The detailing and fabrics were beautiful, so it was an easy decision to make.
Vinny wore a blue French Connection suit with matching waistcoat from Moss Bros in Chester, along with a light blue tie and brown shoes. His superman socks and cufflinks made an appearance once or twice too!
The boys all went for blue Ted Baker suits and waistcoats, also from Moss Bros, and my bridesmaids wore navy multi-way dresses. The flower girls looked so cute in their satin and lace ivory dresses from Monsoon.
