I am sure all weddings at Hardwick Hall Hotel are grand occasions in their own right but Jordan & Matthews was off the charts. Lets start with Jordan’s wedding dress, this was a designer silk gown created by the bridal couture queen Caroline Castigliano with silk zibeline, one of the world’s most expensive fabrics. While the average UK bride is said to spend around £1,000 on her dress at around £9,000 Jordan’s dress is almost half the average budget for UK weddings, which now comes in at an astonishing £21,000
This may not come as a surprise to many as Jordan & Matthews wedding featured in a Channel 4 documentary “How the Other Half Wed” that aired earlier this month. In the program it revealed that the no-expenses-spared bash held at one of Jordan’s family’s hotels included £7,000 on importing over 6,000 hydrangeas, orchids and roses from Holland, the hire of a 20-piece brass band and a Victorian carousel to entertain guests. If you didn’t get a chance to see the CH4 program here is Jordan & Matthew’s wedding video highlight.
The wedding ceremony took place at St Cuthbert’s Church in Co Durham with 300 guests in attendance.
Guests were entertained at the grand reception with various performers and bands, from the moment they arrived right through to the end of the night. The 20-peice brass band, vintage carousel, Pimms bar and cocktail bar were all set up on the lawn ready for the guests arrival and an illuminated personalised dance floor was center stage in the Colman Suite for the first dance.
