Nush and Phil’s wedding features on Whimical Wonderland Weddings
This is another wedding from 2015 which I just love and realised I hadn’t shared with you, though it’s featured on Whimisical Wonderland Weddings.
Its so thrilling when a Poundon House couple’s wedding feature on one of the top Wedding blogs, and to see Nush & Phil’s wedding on Whimisical Wonderland Weddings is

‘Phil and Nush’s utterly beautiful summer wedding was held back on the 27th June and they chose Poundon House for it’s intimate and relaxed setting. They incorporated classic and vintage elements which looked stunning. With fresh pretty pink bouquets, Champagne blush frocks worn by the sweet girls and the floral reception tent. Much of the décor was hand crafted and I love the touches of hessian and lavender, the scent must have been heavenly.
Nush looked incredible in her Pronovias gown with pale blue shoes and delicate headdress. WOW. Oh and don’t miss the naked black forest gateau cake… yum.
Thanks so much to the wonderful Jen Marino for sharing her imagery with us.
THE PROPOSAL | Phil and I had been together for 6 years before the proposal so I was waiting, and at times nagging!!
We have our birthdays close together in March so Phil planned a weekend away in London for the two of us.
I was taking my time to get ready thinking we were in no particular hurry as I was unaware of any concrete plans for once we arrived in London. When we did arrive we had to rush off after dropping our bags at the hotel, as Phil had booked a table at Maze for lunch. Phil kept asking if I wanted champagne but I was quite happy with my glass of wine. I remember feeling the restaurant was very posh just for a casual lunch, so wondered if he may have something up his sleeve. My suspicions grew as Phil took me on several tube rides and was very evasive about where to! We arrived in Kensington and Chelsea Borough and went for a walk through the park and he then said he wanted to show me the Japanese garden as I had never been before. Phil suggested we went over to the waterfall and the next thing I knew, he was down on one knee with a ring box in his hand. I think I then said “yes” before he had even said anything! We got a couple of stares and whispers of “I think he just proposed” from a couple who walked past us, which I think we both found embarrassing so we left to carry on with our day. It felt very surreal. In the evening we went out for dinner and whilst being shown to our table I was expecting a table for two and was then surprised to see lovely familiar faces instead! I hadn’t been in touch with any of my friends since the proposal and I wasn’t wearing the ring (as it didn’t fit!) so there were some puzzled looks exchanged for a while until we worked out who knew what, and I came to the realisation that all my friends knew it was going to happen before I did!!
I later found out that I had messed up the original plan due to us getting to London late, as Phil planned to take me to Kyoto Gardens in the morning for the proposal (with the hope of less people being around to witness it!). Hence why he booked Maze for lunch and the repetitive suggestion of champagne! But even still, it was perfect. He now knows he should give me a time to be ready for!
THE VISION | Summer wedding in a relaxed and intimate setting with vintage styling.
THE PLANNING PROCESS | I began by looking at Pinterest to get some ideas on décor and outfits. I listed down many ideas and saved many pins. My ideas would change from time to time. Phil sat back and let me get on with it – best way, no arguments then!!
The first thing I did was look at dresses to get an idea on styles I thought would suit me and my wedding style but I waited quite a while before going to try any on. We looked at venues and then decided which ones to go and look at. We only looked at three and we chose the first one we looked at. We then booked the registrar as we wanted a civil ceremony at the house so the wedding and reception would all take place at the same place. Once we had the venue and registrar sorted we booked the caterer, bands and photographer.
BUDGET | We didn’t really set a budget (not out loud anyway!).
THE VENUE | Poundon House. It had everything we wanted, a beautiful English Country House in wonderful grounds with amazing views and rooms for us, the bridal party and family to stay in the Friday and Saturday night. Poundon House is owned by the Roscoe Family who let us get on with it and stepped in where we needed them. It felt very relaxed and intimate, just what we wanted.
