What do you get when you combine our beautiful White Hart venue,
with luscious green foliage and Stars Wars?

The answer…the breathtaking and uniquely personal wedding of Kerry & Dan.

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”

KERRY: Dan and I had been together for 10 years when he proposed so I’d waited a long time to be Mrs Sinclair!

We decided we didn’t want to wait ages to get married (mostly because I’d spend loads of money if we did!)
so we planned it in a year.

HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THE WHITE HART AS THE VENUE FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY?

Kerry: We looked at hundreds of venues online, went to see a few in person and none of them had the feel we wanted!

As we’ve been together for so long we really wanted a relaxed atmosphere for us and our guests to feel like it
was a big get together rather than a typical ‘wedding’.

My mum initially found the White Hart online so we booked an appointment. Literally the second we walked into the pub area we were in love!

It’s so modern but with a real rustic feel and when we saw the function room we both knew it was the one!

After that everything fell into place, we found our amazing photographer Jenny Macare on Instagram.
Honestly, after the venue, she was the best money we had spent!

ONE OF THE KEY FEATURES OF YOUR WEDDING WAS HOW PERSONAL IT WAS TO YOU AND DAN, HOW DID YOU ACHIEVE THIS? 

Kerry: I knew when planning our wedding I wanted it to be fun and include everything that made ‘us’ as a couple.

We’ve been together over 10 years and just wanted it to be more of a party for our friends and family than anything formal and stuffy
so I used Rock And Roll Bride magazine and blog as a source of inspiration.

I bought my dress solely to have my giant back tattoo on show, we had Star Wars everywhere (our cake, table names and even inflatable
lightsabers for the photo booth), a Harry Potter quote on the bottom of my shoes and had custom made Vans with my new name on them to dance the night away.

I also knew I wanted the wedding to feel really personal so we had my mum make our cake, my sister put together a
Harry Potter theme sweet cart and my new husbands step mum did every one of our flowers (she is not a florist so how she did it
I’ll never know, the place looked like a jungle!)

FINALLY WHAT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR DAY?

Kerry: : One of our favourite parts of the day (it was stupidly hard to choose because it was the best day of ours lives) was the sparkler walk!
The White Hart has a beautiful brick tunnel that was lined with all our friends and family holding sparklers.
The photos were beautiful!
