Lesley and Toni take a special journey to become Mr and Mrs!

Posted by Nonsuch Mansion

It was all laughter and smiles at the mansion for the wonderful Lesley and Toni’s beautiful Spring wedding earlier this year.  Scrolling through the photos by the fantastic Ria Mishaal Photography, brought tears to our eyes – she really has captured every emotion on their special day and you can truly see that the mansion was bursting with love that day in June.

Touches of sunshine yellow and bright royal blue add something very special to the mansion décor that in fact mirror the gorgeous weather in the afternoon alongside bursts of travel inspired theming to transport us to a very special moment in time for this fantastic couple!





It started with preparations in our bridal dressing room and the room was full of giggles and bubbles as the ladies had their hair and make up done.  Dress hanging in preparation and the guests begin to arrive downstairs to fill our walls with a flutter of excited chit chat and perhaps a few nerves too!

The flower girls and bridesmaids look gorgeous alongside the stunning bride as they wander down the Grand Staircase into the heart of the mansion and have a little get together in our beautiful Library Bar before the ceremony begins.


Rings are ready, music starts and the chatter from Lesley and Toni’s guests stops as breath is held until the doors open…

Toni’s eyes are firmly fixed on the double doors in the Orchid Room waiting for his beautiful wife to be to make her way down the aisle towards him.  First come the lovely flower girls with beaming smiles and finally the moment arrives and the atmosphere in the room changes – all eyes are on the beautiful bride Lesley as she makes her way towards the place where their hands will be joined.

Eyes never parting from each other, this is a moment to treasure and one caught so well on camera by Ria.  The vows are spoken and a few teary eyes and smiles later they are finally Husband and Wife – the silence breaks and as they kiss the room fills with joyful cheers!


Such a beautiful day outside, they all move to the lawns for photos and Champagne to start their married life together!



Their personalities shine through in the mansion all day with the gorgeous detail and effort that has been put in to making the day ‘theirs’.

Ria has captured some lovely Nonsuch Mansion highlights to enjoy here.





The youngest guests just loved having so much space to run around!


Lesley and Toni disappear after dinner for a walk around the grounds at sunset and explore the glorious meadows – these photos are full of light and love – moments we are sure they will treasure for a lifetime.


The evening begins with the cutting of the cake of course and the first dance – although earlier in the day we were a little concerned by the warm up of the band members until we realised that a few smaller members of the wedding decided to have a ‘bash’ at this band malarkey – I’m pretty sure they had a blast!  Future rock stars in the making.




Toni’s eyes are well and truly fixed on his beautiful wife and not a moment do they leave to look at the on-looking friends and family – words from their first dance song ‘Evergreen’ speak volumes today – ‘I’m gonna take this moment and make it last forever I’m gonna give my heart away and pray we’ll stay together’ –  the truest love has been seen this day at Nonsuch Mansion and love to last these two a lifetime.


As the words say on the walls of Nonsuch Mansion…

‘Hora e sempre’ – now and forever’!
