Jill and Rob’s Beautiful Wedding At the Maison Talbooth
We visited both The Maison Talbooth and Le Talbooth for Jill and Robs wedding. Their day had heaps of class with elements of personal tradition, these two venues perfectly reflected that. The first venue we attended (where the two declared their love and said their ‘I do’s’) was at the beautiful Maison Talbooth.
Hidden away in the constable countryside of Dedham Vale is where you will find the beautiful Maison Talbooth of the Milson group Hotels. It is an absolutely stunning large country house, with an attached outdoor pool! This Venue has a peaceful and private ambience perfect for your wedding day! It’s simplistic in style giving you the opportunity to really add your own twist on the venue which was exactly what Jill and Rob did! As the guests arrived the traditional reed and wind sounds of vibrant bagpipes filled the air, emanating the traditional Scottish heritage of Jill and her family. The Scottish theme ran throughout the wedding – even the mens buttonholes were the traditional thistle, the Scottish touch was beautifully interweaved into subtle detail.
Although the weather was perfect, we never got a chance to dip our feet in the gorgeous pool (perfect for a BBQ reception!?) as our day was filled with festivities from morning to night! Jills happiness radiated off her, and she looked amazing! Her dress beautifully hugged her figure before flaring out into a gorgeous mini train, she finished the dress with a glitzy but delicate hair piece and we absolutely fell in love with her fur shawl! Next to the handsome Rob in his striking royal blue suit the two could not have looked more perfect.
As with every single Wedding there is always a few moments that really are special, for Jill and Rob there were many but one that touched all of our hearts was watching Jill walk down the isle with her young son, who gave her away. Although only little, it was clear that her little man was keeping her nerves and excitement steady as she walked smile beaming down the isle towards a love struck Rob.
Just when you think the views, venue and mood couldn’t get any better – a courtesy Range Rover collects the Bride and Groom to drive them down to the absolutely stunning La Talbooth Restaurant, resting just off the river bank. The decor of the restaurant is older than the Maison Talbooth. It has a cosy inside with wooden beams and low ceilings though large windows span the outside filling the rooms with light.
Rob and Jill had all their closest family and friends gathered together in this intimate space sharing laughter and tears over the brilliant speeches carefully crafted by their guests. La Talbooth did not disappoint when their food came out either! Top quality in taste and the presentation was absolutely impeccable – worth every penny!
To finish the night we all headed back up to the Maison Talbooth where the once ceremony room was now filled with live music with acts such as a Stevie Wonder impersonator! Jill and Rob intermingled between friends and guests as more people arrived to party and celebrate their love! A fabulous end to a beautiful love-filled day.
