“Me and Ben met the old-fashioned way, at a bar,” explains model and actress Sadie Newman as she thinks back to the birthday party when she met her now husband Ben Berger, an L.A.-based songwriter and producer. Newman mentions that they were both fresh out of relationships and dating wasn’t on their minds, but something instantly clicked when they met. “The moment we started talking, we couldn’t stop,” Newman says. “Hours passed and I didn’t want it to end and I still don’t want it to.”
It was at the same bar where Berger later proposed. Seated in the exact booth where they first met, he asked Newman to marry him in a room illuminated by glowing candlelight and the sound of the couple’s songs filling the air. “I was then whisked away to our favorite spot, Jones Hollywood, where we first said ‘I love you.’ I walked into the back room and was surprised by all my friends and family for an engagement dinner followed by a night at Sunset Tower. Truly perfect,” Newman shares. “It’s always been difficult for me to articulate how much I love Ben, but I really was just so certain he was supposed to be my husband from the moment I met him.”
The couple’s wedding took place at Cornwell Manor in the Cotwolds, a destination just three hours from Devon where Newman grew up. The wedding incorporated their love of fashion, the charm and whimsy of the English countryside, and their own spin on family traditions. Scroll on to read more about how the wedding unfolded with words from the bride, including everything from the custom ’90s-inspired dress to all of the details behind the destination nuptials.
