Wood and Saxton Wedding

Wood and Saxton Wedding


Marie and Paul booked their wedding with us with just 2 months till the big day! They brought their two boys to each appointment and it was lovely to see how the whole family was involved in the planning. Our Venue dresser Absolute Weddings decorated the ceremony room with a gypsophila aisle runner and bay trees either side of the hotels red carpet aisle. There was a lovely intimate and cosy feel to the day with the couples closest family attending. The subtle colours of light grey sashes and the pale pink in the flowers complimented each other greatly.

For the Wedding Breakfast Marie and Paul chose to have a choice menu where guests pre-ordered.

Their menu was:

  • Roast tomato & basil soup with croutons
  • Seasonal melon with pineapple & strawberry salsa
  • Chicken liver pâté, chutney & brioche
  • Roast chicken breast with champ mash, button mushrooms & tarragon jus
  • Honey-glazed pork loin with apple compote & cider gravy
  • Herb-crusted fillet of salmon with butter bean & vegetable ragu
  • Baked vanilla cheesecake with seasonal berry compote
  • Citrus tart with lime crème fraîche
  • Sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce

The couple chose a U-Shape layout for the Wedding Breakfast.

This really suited their intimate wedding and the table looked beautiful with the floating candles, vase flowers and table runners provided by Absolute Weddings.

During the Wedding they played background music which created a lovely atmosphere.

Its been such a pleasure helping them plan their wedding day and we are so pleased that they loved the day. Congratulations to the couple again and have the best honeymoon!
