It’s not everyone’s vision of wedding planning, but in the globalised world we live in, organising all the fine details of your wedding via electronic communication is what you’d call a needs-must situation.
People may ask, but how do you get a feeling of a house without crossing its threshold? Will the food be tasty? What about the wedding cake? And can we really pull off the logistics of it all without knowing the flow of the venue?
Who, Fairy Godmother of Far Far Away Land can help with such a thing?!
Luckily, Elmore Court, a house built in 1274 has the technical advances to be able to cater for such a market. They don’t call themselves Team E (for electric, or is it efficiency?!) for nothing. On their website, they have a fantastic virtual tour of the house and Gillyflower, which helps internet wedding research no end. Because, let’s be frank, after a certain mileage of doing venue research online, you can start to get stats, room sizes and capacities in a muddle and decision making becomes the stuff of dreams.
Tours ‘r’ Us
At the start of the tour you see a doll’s house style cross section of the entire house, before you get to click and cruise through the maze of corridors, go eye-to-eye with a Guise ancestral portrait hanging in the dining room, discover who killed Colonel Mustard and in which room and win the game! (I digress). It is fair to say, it is a very comprehensive tour. You will have explored every nook and cranny of fair and festive Elmore by the time you are through. We might put our necks on the line and say it’s as good as being there in person even. Your green credentials skyrocket too, that Team E-nvironment would most definitely be happy with.
So all you need after falling head over heels in love with the venue, is trust.
Trusting in Team E is not hard, as they are total professionals. Some of them have even been married at Elmore themselves so they know what it is like from the bride’s perspective and the 1001 thoughts that rush through a bridezilla’s head at every stage of the planning process. They know communication is key for a far-away bride and offer reassurance at every step of the way.
It’s a bit like Christmas
What is exciting about not seeing the venue or being there in person in the run up to your wedding, is that much of it is new and exciting for you too. You get to roll with it like the groom often does, rather than being part of every decision and detail. This can often give you an even better than normal wedding experience, if that’s ever possible.
So if you are a far-away bride and you are looking at flights, thinking you need to come back for venue viewings. Don’t be worried. Save your money and trust in the professionals. They’ve got you covered.
A picture paints a thousand words, so we’ll let the tour do the talking.
Wedding Planning from Abroad
Proof is indeed in the (delicious tasting) pudding. Be sure to read about Katie and Navin a couple who climbed up that trust tree with Team E and planned their beautiful Spring wedding at Elmore without having set foot in the venue. Those smiles say it all don’t they?
