A rustic themed couple of weeks

We begin this week’s blog with our first wedding open evening of the year, which took place on Wednesday 26th April. We kept it intimate with just two of our recommended suppliers attending, Sorella Venue Stylists and Flourish Florists. They did an amazing job at making both the Oak Room and Garden Suite fit for a wedding. It was such a great opportunity to see the Hall set and also have a chat with us about your exciting plans. We will keep you posted about when our next open event is, we hope to see you all there!

On Saturday 29th April, our last wedding of the month took place and Carla and Adam became Mr and Mrs Lindley. A lot of planning had gone into their wedding so it was no surprise that it turned out so wonderfully. Upon entering the Hall, guests were welcomed with an array of guest books, wish jars and advice sheets to keep them entertained whilst waiting for the ceremony. The staircase, which is always one of my favourite parts of the Hall when decorated, was covered from top to bottom in draped chiffon fabric, filled with fairy lights. This looked absolutely amazing during the day, so you can imagine how good the twinkly lights looked once the sun had set. Their ceremony room was simple yet beautiful, with tiny finishing touches that really complemented the room. Bouquets of gypsophila tied to chairs and tiny jars of flowers which hung around the room added a splash of colour as did petals, which lined the long aisle.

Carla and Adam had continued their theme through into the Garden Suite with rustic looking centrepieces. Each table had a piece of bark on which stood vases of blue and white flowers. Name cards were heart shaped blocks of wood with each guest’s name engraved on. These were just so pretty and the perfect keepsake for every guest. Each of the tables was named after a different football player, to represent their love of football but of course opposing teams. Their cake also had a slight football theme, with both the cake toppers (the Bride and Groom) wearing their usual matchday attire. I absolutely loved this cake, as the little toppers looked exactly like the bride and groom, even the dress was perfectly similar.

Our first wedding of May took place on Saturday 6th and Alex and Jon married in our Oak Room. They had chosen a similar theme to Carla and Adam but no one decoration was the same. They had decorated the Hall with the most beautiful trinkets you could ever wish for. I loved every bit of it! J and A letters, lace confetti cones and pretty paper bunting welcomed you to the Hall and looked so good in our entrance. Their ceremony room had stunning hired in chairs which matched their theme perfectly and of course our oak room too! Fairy lights lined the beautiful fireplace which only emphasised it more! It’s definitely the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony.

Their decoration in the garden suite was simple yet pretty. The beautiful jugs on each table just looked amazing and I absolutely loved them, never mind the stunning flowers that stood inside them! Their cake was simply delightful, the three tiers were covered with delicate iced flowers and atop sat the cutest little dog. The absolute highlight of their wedding for me was the stunning ‘love’ letters which were stood in the corner of the dancefloor. The light from these letters just made the already beautiful room, look even better! I can only imagine how good they looked which the guests were dancing the night away around them.

That’s it for this week’s blog, we’ll be back soon!
