Our only wedding this week took place on Saturday 1st October and saw Rachel and Aaron wed in our Oak Room. They did most of the decorations themselves and I must say, they were absolutely beautiful. In the oak room, the chairs were covered with white covers with hessian and lace sashes which always looks great against the wood panels. Bay tree’s, lanterns and petals lined the isle and really put emphasis on it for the bride’s big entrance. The subtle fairy lights on the fireplace and pompoms in the window really pulled the whole room together; I just loved how pretty it all looked! The entrance way was also decorated in a similar rustic look with crates, wild flowers and jam jars. There were even a couple of doves that not only looked amazing outside the hall but also got released by the Bride and Groom which looked amazing! We’ve never had a dove release at the Hall before and I was probably more amazed than anyone else at the wedding!
The theme carried on into the Garden Suite with ladders at the side of the fireplace. I think they just look so stunning with letters and flowers on them, and these were no exception. Plus, it’s a great way to use the old ladders that have been stuck in your garage for years! The candles and fairy lights that surrounded the fireplace made it the centrepiece of the room and really made it look beautiful. Rachel and Aaron also added bunting to the Garden Suite and pompoms which matched the Oak Room and the terrace keeping the theme the same throughout. Each table had a centrepiece which had flowers, jars, watering cans and wooden blocks, and whilst each one was different, they all came together perfectly. I always talk about the cake table as its usually my favourite thing about weddings and this one definitely was. As cake stands go, we’ve had lots of different ones… but never a barrel! I just absolutely love this idea, it looked so simple but so effective with the cake on top. The cake was also in keeping with the hessian theme and was surrounded by delicious looking tiny cupcakes on wooden blocks. Perfect for a little snack in the evening!
On Sunday 2nd October, our wedding fayre took place. The Hall was set up absolutely beautifully by our recommended suppliers and we went all out to ensure the Hall looked amazing for our potential couples. The downstairs which was dressed by Kurly Birds and Flourish, was possibly the best yet! It had so many different themes on show and there was even a Christmas themed table; which was definitely my favourite! The Hall was filled with the beautiful sounds of Southdene String Duo who are absolutely brilliant for weddings. Fotoboov was also here for all your photobooth needs! Outside we had some beautiful wedding cars from Fairytale Weddings and also Vintage Volks. Danny did wine tasting at the bar and as you can imagine it ended up being very popular. Hog Roast samples and cakes were available from our lovely hog roast supplier and Those Finishing Touches.
Upstairs, our lovely rooms were filled with more suppliers and there was plenty to look at from Sorella, Pretty Chairs, Tilly Fudge Stationary, Maggie Rose, Mikael Lamber Photography, Amie Parsons Photography, KMR Bridal, Buzz Childcare, Emma Buck and Sam Holloway. It was a great opportunity to get some really good ideas for your wedding day!
Our next wedding open day is on Sunday 20th November and will be Winter themed! All our Christmas decorations will be up and there will be mulled wine waiting for you at the door!
We hope to see you all there!
