A late afternoon, chic Lancashire wedding with two marquees!
11th September 2019
Amy and Niels wedding was held at Amy’s beautiful parents house which nestled itself in the stunning Lancashire countryside.
Wanting a relaxed, chic, rustic feel the bridal couple chose to have two clearview marquees which would allow the beauty of the gardens in and draped the ceiling with billowing white cloths which complimented the wooden tables and chairs and hanging wooden beams which were either studded with lightbulb’s and green foliage or free-flowing flowers which hung in various clear mini vases. The look was understated but completely stunning in its simplicity.
The tables were decorated with ivory runners and glass filled vases, with foliage carefully placed to echo what was hanging above and candlesticks of white wax.
Cut glassware maintained the clean theme and white folded napkins showcased the seating and menu combined card and embellished with a sprig of rosemary.
In the second marquee there was to be a bar area, dancefloor and DJ booth. This time the ceiling was decorated with a mix of different sized white chinese lanterns which concealed little lights that lit them up in the evening. The bar area and the DJ mixing desk reflected the rustic look by being covered in wooden slatting. The dropped exposed lightbulbs and gorgeous floral creations framed the area perfectly.
At 3pm the church service started and the weather transformed from moody skies to bright blue and fluffy clouds. Which was perfect timing for the drinks reception around the pool. Guests were greeted by laid-back Jamaican sounds and chilled glasses, before heading up to the main marquee and the wedding breakfast which consisted of a range of dishes reflecting the UK and Niels homeland.
For dessert the gospel choir sang as the bride and groom went around the tables and cut slices for the guests of Almond Torte which was served with pistachio ice-cream, lemon sorbet and summer berries. The speech by best woman was followed by a potent schnapps, which went down a storm.
For the first dance, the gospel choir sang “This will be (an everlasting love) by Natalie Cole, where the DJ and saxophonist really kick started the party. Guests helped themselves to the pick and mix and later snacked on delicious cheeses.
The evening saw the dancefloor filled until the last guests left in the early hours. it was just a perfect day!
