For their spring wedding, Stacey and David wanted a theme that was regal and aristocratic. They wanted something romantic yet quirky, formal yet relaxed. Their venue, Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire, really helped with this of course!
“I have always been obsessed with Brocket Hall. I’m fascinated by the history and decadence!”, said the bride. “I love historical buildings and always wonder what it would have been like to live somewhere like that when it was in its heyday. I think I was born in the wrong era!”
“We wanted to feel like Lord and Lady Brocket and wanted our guests to very much have that kind of experience too – that they were fellow lords and ladies attending a soiree at our mansion! The funny thing is that a few months after we got together it was my birthday and one of the gifts David got me was a lordship so my official title is Lady Stacey Holmes of Wansley Manor! So to return the favour on his birthday later that year I also got him a lordship so he is Lord David Breed of Wansley Manor. In the wedding register, as we are allowed to use our titles in the occupation section, it actually states our occupations as Lord and Lady of the Manor! We had also asked to be announced as Lord and Lady by the toastmaster as we entered the dining room for our wedding breakfast so he said ‘Ladies and gentlemen please be upstanding for your bride and groom – Lord and Lady Breed”’
