A rural ivy-ensconced estate, adorable lite bites, and a breathtaking wedding gown are just a few noteworthy aspects of Amber and Dominic's English countryside wedding full of inspiration.By: Emily Goldman
"London was really where our love flourished," recalls Amber of why she and Dominic chose Cornwell Manor to wed. "We wanted a place where we could celebrate with strictly our friends and families, and the Cotswolds was the best happy medium for both sides." Amber's family came in from the US, while Dominic's family and friends made the trip down from the North of England.

Wedding signs directed guests and served as the perfect addition to the soirées ethereal décor.
Dominic and Amber chose a classic chapel wedding, which tapped into the signature English countryside feel of the wedding weekend.
"We made sure to have a full weekend of plans so that everyone could relax and enjoy," says Amber. The groomsmen took this concept to heart with paint gas making for picture-perfect fun.
Cocktail Hour & Reception
The cocktail hour took place under a tented bar, with smatterings of furniture around the estate serving as a place for guests to rest their feet before dancing the night away.
Guests sipped on champagne and munched on lite bites in the estate's courtyard before the reception.
Family and friends sat inside the elegant estate, with modern-meets-classic details. Giant tapestries adorned the walls, while transparent chairs and crisp, white linens welcomed guests to their seats.
"It’s crazy how well everyone got along ... and how much love filled the room during our dinner and speeches," says Amber. "I’ve never felt more supported by that many people at once in my life! A feeling that truly made our wedding a day we will hold dear."
