We love it when romance arrives unexpectedly. Mike, originally a Mancunian, moved across the pond to the US in 2013, where he decided to join a kickball team. There he met fellow team mate Julia and their friendship developed into something more.
Their Belle Epoque Wedding
The couple knew that they didn’t want anything too formal or fussy – just their close friends and family in a unique setting.
With Julia in the States, Mike chose one of our featured venues, The Belle Époque, in the quaint Cheshire town of Knutsford. Julia tells us that she loved the history and characterful style of this venue, with its quirky features and rich colour palette. An added bonus was that the venue could be hired exclusively and guests could stay there. Despite not seeing wedding venue until days before their big day, Julia was delighted with Mike’s choice. Phew!

Food, Drink & Floral Favours
The Belle Epoque took care of the catering including canapés, the wedding breakfast and an evening meal.
Chesire Wedding Cakes took charge of the wedding cake. Three delicious tiers of double chocolate, carrot cake and chocolate orange sponge. De-lic-ious!
Best Bits and Words of Advice?!
The couple loved that everyone was on the dance floor (thanks to Gillan!) all night and had a grand old time.
In their wedding vision, the couple wanted their Belle Epoque Wedding to be filled with fun and love without any stress. It was a huge success. They told us: “We enjoyed the day from start to finish with no worries.” Their advice? “Don’t sweat about the small stuff, it is all about being with your family and friends.”
Cheers to that!
