Maggie and Oliver decided to get married at Lunga on the basis of one phone call. Both based in Singapore, they trusted that this lovely little castle was the perfect place for them to gather together their family and friends from all over the world to celebrate their wedding. If they were nervous about arriving here a couple of days before getting married without ever having been to Lunga, they didn't show it.
On arrival, Oliver described it as beyond their wildest dreams. Beyond their expectations. Beyond everything they could have hoped for. And everyone involved in making their day so special was rewarded with smiles as big as the ocean. All weekend long.
The lovely charlotte from Lotte and Bloom decorated the fabulous cheesecake, which guests enjoyed with vintage port after dinner and throughout the evening.We loved all of the details, co-ordinated online from their home in Singapore.
Maggie and Oliver walked together to where friends and family waited..
..passing the piper and the harpist along the way...
..carrying the loveliest of bouquets that looked like it had just been picked, which is precisely how Maggie wanted it to be.. and precisely how Charlotte made it to be..
And under a tree, with the sun shining on a cloudy day, and a slanty lawn and his and her Lunga tweed chairs and guests casually gathered to watch, and to enjoy and to share in this special special day..
lovely, lovely Maggie and Oliver got married!!
Have you ever seen such happiness!
I'll be posting Nick Kirk's fabulous photography of the day just as soon as he forwards it to me and food shots of the vegetarian meal in Lunga's lovely ballroom are coming soon on my food blog.
Maggie and Oliver are quite possibly the kindest hearted couple I have ever met. They brought us gifts. They brought us smiles. And they brought us a wonderful collection of friends and family happy to share a lovely lovely celebration. Safe travels, Maggie and Oliver. We hope to hear from you soon!
