She Swiped Right
by Tracy and Jason Cooper
We met on Tinder the dating site. Tracy said I had a kind face and luckily we both swiped right. We had so much in common including our love of music and our family values.
I proposed to Tracy over a kebab, which doesn't sound romantic but it was in Greece which definitely made it better.
When it came to deciding where to get married we didn’t visit many venues but we loved the intimacy of Manor Hill and thought it was perfect for the size of our wedding party. With the different sized rooms we could pick which rooms were the right fit for our numbers and make it feel exactly how we wanted it to.
Tracy picked a classic theme using her own collection of vintage glass and silver ware incorporating my boxing trophies to make it personal. the mix of the different things gave a really special look to the rooms and a real talking point for the guests.
Tracy went out shopping for her wedding dress one day for just 2 hours and came back with her dress. It was the perfect pick as she looked sensational.When it came to the groomsmen, we chose regular matching suits for the groom, best man and brother of the bride which Tracy didn’t see until the day.
When we sat down with Tom the chef to design our wedding menu we chose the food as “crowd pleasers” and it really was we had so many compliments on the quality and quantity.
Jason had a cold when we went to the menu meeting and he said the chocolate brownie was the first thing he had been able to taste in weeks so we went back in to see Tom and asked him to make us a naked wedding cake with his fabulous chocolate brownie as the bottom layer.
We chose Chris Smith as our DJ. He was recommended by Manor Hill and did a great job from the ceremony to the evening. We are both huge “Northern Soul” fans so it was important that he included that and kept the dance floor full all night, He didn't fail and Jason danced for most of the night.
The best part of the day was definitely the ceremony and the funniest would be the speeches by Tracy’s brother and the best man
Jasons favourite picture is of Tracy making her way to the ceremony she looks so beautiful.
Manor Hill are fantastic and made us feel so special and that we could relax and enjoy the day.
Our advise to other couples would be to take a step back and see the amount of love in the room and also to spend time together as a couple because the day goes so fast.
