Kelly and Daniel’s sumptuous Goodwood House wedding took place at this beautiful luxury wedding venue. This Regency Grade I listed building is nestled within the Goodwood Estate which boasts 12,000 acres of glorious parkland in West Sussex. Being a union of an Englishman (Daniel) and an American lady (Kelly), guests had naturally travelled from far and wide to this beautiful Sussex wedding venue.
Kelly opted for a stunning strapless Vera Wang mermaid-style gown from L’Atelier Couture Bridal Boutique, Minnesota. The wedding dress had beautiful floating multi-layered lace appliqué and a sunburst petal pleated train. Kelly personalised the dress with a jewelled, crystal Vera Wang sash. The bride finished the look with Christian Dior shoes and stunning silver-tone Givenchy crystal and pearl chandelier earrings.
A very touching and personal wedding ceremony was conducted by one of Kelly’s brothers in the very memorable Yellow Drawing Room. This room contains magnificent, full-length portraits of George II, Queen Caroline, George III and Queen Charlotte. Afterwards at the drinks reception, the wedding guests enjoyed lawn games, champagne and canapés on the sprawling grounds around the house. I snuck away with the couple to capture some timeless wedding portraits in this truly beautiful Sussex wedding venue for this Goodwood House wedding.
As evening set in, guests were invited in to the Goodwood House ballroom for the wedding banquet. They entered this magnificent room in awe of one of the most significant private art collections in the country which lines the walls in splendour. The gold and red room was filled with tea lights and candles creating a warm, inviting ambience. The tables were sumptuously decorated with centre pieces of pinks and fuchsia coloured florals bursting out of their silver urns by Only Roses.
A delicious 3-course banquette was followed by an intriguing speech by the father of the bride who spoke of their risqué adventures as a family in South East Asia where he was posted in the American Diplomatic service. The Groom, Best Man and Maid of Honour’s speeches were equally entertaining. Matt Maurice, DJ extraordinaire, thrilled the guests with all the hits at this Goodwood House wedding and the party went on till the very small hours of the night.
