style Make some magic From your special day to your home décor, keep it individual… Oyez! Oyez! ...The sound of the Rye town crier telling the world about your wedding! The ancient English Town of Rye lies on the East Sussex coast on the edge of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once virtually surrounded by the sea, this small and characterful market town is steeped in history – it is one of the Cinque Port Towns, lined up to resist a Napoleonic invasion. Be a part of this historic splendour by tying the knot in the magnificent 18th-century Rye Town Hall, a Grade II listed building in the Rye Conservation Area. Weddings are conducted in the elegant Council Chamber, a former courtroom that provides a unique and historic setting for the ceremony. And having the town crier on hand to welcome guests and ‘cry’ the union from the steps of the Town Hall is just the icing on the cake. This is your song Among the key focal points of almost every wedding day – the ceremony, cutting the cake and the speeches – your first dance as newlyweds is a very special moment. As you take your first tentative steps on the dance floor, you hear the applause and cameras flash... then come the opening chords of your song, the song that is so special to you both. So what better way to treasure the memory than with a unique and personalised gold or silver plated disc from The Gold Disc to commemorate your wedding first dance – not just a talking point, but a reminder that the first dance will last forever. The fantastic selection of discs and photo presentations have been used for awards by the Hard Rock Café and the Hammersmith Apollo – and your new spouse will love them too. Special pieces There is something momentous about the time you start shopping for furniture together, choosing pieces that will last your lifetime together and beyond. Why not do so in a stunning and easily accessed location, with a good café (and some friendly animals too) on site? Situated on a farm in the picturesque village of Chelsfield in Kent just 1 mile from Junction 4 of the M25, Owen Pine and Oak Furniture stocks and makes quality oak and pine bedroom, living room, dining and office furniture. Their barn-housed showroom has hundreds of pieces of oak and pine furniture on display and you can refresh and restore yourselves in the Barn Café, while you decide. Those further afield can order online, and if you don’t see what you like or have an awkward space to fill, they can create bespoke furniture according to your exact needs and measurements. pink weddings magazine » 47
