Meet: Medha & Pav

Wedding date: 29th April 2021 Number of guests: 90 How did you meet? “Met at a mutual friends wedding.” Describe the journey of finding your dream venue and your experience with Springfield House: “We were looking for an outdoor venue for an intimate wedding (as intimate as we can for an Indian wedding). If it had a gazebo it was an added bonus. When we saw Springfield we loved the garden area and the team at Springfield were lovely and so helpful with our many questions. They had also had many Indian weddings which helped in discussing the details of a Hindu ceremony. “ What made you fall in love with Springfield House? “We fell in love with the natural setting, the grounds and the gazebo structure. The backdrop was so beautiful with the trees that we knew it was a gorgeous place to get married.” What advice would you give to the future brides looking for a wedding venue? “It’s a tough process finding a venue that meets your criteria but be patient because you will find the venue that hits your criteria list. It is helpful to research plenty of venue options and make a list of questions you want to ask each venue. Create a pros and cons list of all the venues you visit because when you see so many venues it can get quite confusing so a list definitely makes deciding easier. “ Would you recommend the Springfield House to future brides? “Definitely, it was such a beautiful venue!”

Describe the wedding in a few paragraphs:

We had originally planned to have all our events in April/May 2020, however because of the restrictions at the time we opted to have a civil ceremony in May 2020 in our backyard. With so much uncertainty around covid, we decided to postpone the events to a year later hoping it would subside by then. We chose a date around the same time as our civil ceremony to remain consistent and to try and coordinate with all our vendors. We were lucky all vendors were available and we were able to have our friends and family present for the wedding.

After the year that we had, we were so happy to be able to finally celebrate our wedding with our family and friends. It was such a beautiful day and our vendors did an amazing job with coordinating, decorating, music and the food, that the whole day was fantastic. We were actually able to absorb the moment and remember it without it flying by in a blur.”

What was the best moment of the night (funniest, most heart-warming, and most memorable)?

  • Confetti cannon mishap – we had two members of our family stand on either side of the gazebo to pop the canons as they announced us married. However my cousin struggled to pop it which led to about 2 min of cheering her on to try and pop it. We got some great photos out of it that mishap.
  • Seeing all our close friends and family together after the year we had with Covid.
  • The weather on the day was so pleasant that it made it more enjoyable.
  • The DJ’s music playlist when we were bargaining for the groom’s shoes.
