Kelly and Greg’s Wedding!

Kelly and Greg’s Wedding!


Kelly and Greg booked their wedding a couple years in advance and it has been wonderful getting to know them and helping them every step of the way.

Kelly made an entrance as she arrived on the day in a vintage car and walked the red carpet into the hotel looking stunning.

A lantern lit white carpet, beautiful twinkle backdrop and a draped arch completely transformed the ceremony room. Cadburys purple and touches of silver were the colour scheme with a theme of butterflies. Kelly had lots of personal touches for the day that she had collected over the years since they originally booked- musical boxes, signs and bunting. She decorated the reception and bar area with jars filled with peonies.

The outside arch was covered in pearl lights making a fantastic area for photo opportunities when the sun thankfully decided to come out as the ceremony finished. Kelly and Greg’s photographer was Kev Matthews- one of our favourites! Whilst having their photos, their guests enjoyed chocolate and fudge canapes.

The room looked just as amazing for the wedding breakfast. Giant love letters lit up the room. For the centre pieces, Kelly created these herself using white lanterns and tea lights that looked very effective. The butterfly table plan created by our Venue dresser really tied the theme together.

The Wedding Breakfast Menu they chose was:

  • Roast tomato and basil soup with croutons
  • Roast chicken breast with champ mash, gravy and Yorkshire pudding
  • Chocolate brownie and ice cream

Their butterfly cake looked delicious with adorable matching cupcakes too! For the evening reception the couple had a horse and carriage sweet cart filed with their favourite sweets. Kelly and Greg used our resident DJ MC Productions for their reception and upgraded to the uplighter package. After their first dance in the evening Kelly chose to do a dad and daughter dance which was a lovely touch.

We were so pleased to receive this lovely feedback from them after the wedding:

‘ I would like to say a big thank you to you for helping me every step of the way planning my fairy tale wedding, everything was perfect and nothing went wrong, I’m so glad you were there to see me in my dress, and share my special day it means alot thank you so much’ Congratulations to a lovely couple- have a fantastic honeymoon!
