Transatlantic Wedding

Rodbaston Hall’s Refurbishment

Vanessa and Phil Machin became the first couple to get married in the newly refurbished Rodbaston Hall and they travelled over 10,000 miles from Australia to do so!

Vanessa and Phil who still live in Australia chose Rodbaston Hall as the setting for this most special of days, because Vanessa had developed a soft spot for the beautiful grounds and historic buildings.

The planning and detail was slightly challenging due to the time difference, but this did not seem to phase the couple at all.

Vanessa & Phil chose a civil ceremony in the newly extended Holtom and Lewis Room at Rodbaston Hall.

They both brought a little bit of history and antipodean flavour to the wedding. Vanessa’s parents surprised Vanessa with a beautiful horse drawn carriage and Phil organised a white horse as a further suprise, providing some wonderful photo opportunities within the Halls and extensive grounds. The table arrangements at the wedding breakfast were named after favourite Australian Beaches and they had a ‘Barbie’ wishing well at the side of the room.

The couple had a magical and memorable day and stated “The day was perfect”.
