Louise & Andriy’s Wedding at Blackstock Country Estate

In March of 2022, Louise and Andriy decided to tie the knot. They always dreamt of a wedding that was as unique as them, an event they could cherish for the rest of their lives. The couple chose to enjoy a church ceremony at a venue in Hove and then make the short journey to the picturesque scenery of Blackstock Country Estate.

We were honoured to be chosen by the couple for such a significant occasion. Hopefully, we brought their vision to life and created a magical day they can reminisce over. Here is how their day went…

The Ceremony

As we mentioned, the happy couple decided to exchange their vows at a beautiful church in Hove. The church boasted stunning architecture in the most serene of surroundings. More importantly, however, the couple were surrounded by all their beloved friends and family.

Dressed in her breathtaking white bridal gown, Louise exuded a captivating aura as she walked down the aisle. Her husband-to-be was looking incredibly sharp in a navy suit that symbolised sophistication and class. To complete the look, he wore a soft pink tie which, while a subtle touch, showed his sense of confidence.

Once their ceremony had come to its natural conclusion, Louise and Andriy, accompanied by their bridal party, embarked on the short journey to Blackstock for the reception and evening celebrations!

Post Ceremony

The couple arrived in style, turning heads as they made their entrance known in a white 1960s Rolls-Royce Phantom. After some pictures in front of the classic car, everyone ventured out onto our courtyard area to enjoy the sun and a selection of canapes and drinks.

With their guests happily occupied, the newlyweds took the opportunity to partake in a private photoshoot with Simon Butler on the expansive Blackstock grounds. Surrounded by lush greenery and picturesque landscapes, the couple captured timeless memories that would forever remind them of their love and happiness on this special day.

The Menu

After a short while, Louise and Andriy ventured back over to Blackstock Estate’s main site. Here, the Blackstock Toast Master announced Mr & Mrs Ptashka for the very first time. Adorned with delicate decorations and warm lighting, our Granary barn gave off an inviting and intimate atmosphere. The wedding breakfast was a delightful experience that featured carefully curated dishes that delighted the guests. Both the front and kitchen staff took every step possible to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible.

Once the final course plates had been cleared, a collection of sincere speeches were performed by Louise’s father, Andriy and the couple’s best man. All of the speeches were performed with emotion and pride. Each speech brought a unique perspective and set of emotions to the event. The speeches left the guests touched and thoroughly entertained!

Evening Celebrations

As the evening progressed, the bridal party made their way to the Tudor Barn, which had been transformed into a magnificent space for their evening reception. The couple’s evening guests arrived and a wave of excitement for the evening ahead came with them.

In the barn awaited live music band Pink Champagne who performed throughout the evening. The barn’s rustic charm, complete with twinkling fairy lights set the stage for the couple’s first dance, to L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole. Surrounded by the joy and smiles of their friend and family, Louise and Andriy swayed gracefully to a song they’ll never forget. It was a tear-jerking moment that marked the beginning of their journey as a married couple.

As the band drew the night to a close, Louise and Andriy thanked their guests for their attendance, cherishing the memories created on their special day. Hand in hand they then made the short walk to the Tudor Cottage, where they would spend their first night as husband and wife.
