Groom : Jonathan Whitehead
WHY DID YOU PICK THIS VENUE AND WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL TO YOU ?
We chose Woodhall Manor because it has in our eyes several amazing points. We wanted somewhere that we and our guests could stay, along with amazing grounds which we knew would look fabulous with aerial shots. We also loved the fact it was intimate and private for our guests with beautiful scenery and of course amazing fountains to add an extra touch of luxury. We both loved the two bridal suites but ultimately went for the classic and older styled suite. We just knew for us this was the place that we wanted to say your vows and become one.
WHAT IS IMPORTANT IN LIFE TO YOU?:
Family. We are both from very family orientated backgrounds. Jonathan grew up in the farming community in Essex and i grew up in London in the city. We are both different but our values are the same! Family comes first, so for us to be getting married it will be even so amazing as Daisy will also be legally changing her surname to Jonathan's so all three of us will become "one"
HOW ABOUT THE PROPOSAL? TELL US EVERYTHING! ? :
Jonathan agreed to go on the trip of a life time and to tick a huge dream off my bucket list. So we flew to New York to watch the Ball drop on new years eve!!! That would of been too predictable, so after New York we continued our adventure and went to the Grand Canyon for a day trip. On the 4th January 2015 we got to this amazing spot in the grand canyon, where the snow was freshly settled and i was talking to him and mid point i noticed that he was despite the cold, on his knee and i suddenly realised in shock that he was asking me to marry him! I was in so much shock i changed the subject and asked for a hot chocolate (something we still laugh about today). I of course said yes but the proposal was so surprising it took a few days to settle in! Little did we know our daughter would be born nearly to the day a year later on 7th January 2016.
