The Angel at Hetton has a fabulous wine cave that was the place my beautiful best friend married her man this past Easter Saturday. I was honoured to be bridesmaid with her darling daughter. It was the most wonderful day, one of the best…Spring and yellow was the theme with gold accents. Chevron fabric runners were made by the brides mum, pretty spring blooms dressed every surface in a pretty variety of vases and jars. The bridal flowers were a scented mix of Lily of the Valley, white and blue muscari ( her something blue along with a blue broach) sweet peas, ranunculus, eucalyptus and freesia. We carried textured posies to match the bride, a little more sleek than hers which was a bit more loose and natural. Faye wore the prettiest of flower crowns, the epitome of spring on her little bobbed hair.
The decor in the wine cave is dark and moody with a massed long and low arrangement spring burst on to the ceremony table. We dotted little arrangements on the shelves of the cave to add pretty scent and colour.
The reception at Cracoe Village Hall was a carefully planned affair with a wonderfully relaxed and vibrant feel, a feel of new beginnings and lambs were literally bleating in the fields around.
The tables were long tables rather than traditional round tables, I just love dressing long tables. The chairs were folded wooden chairs hired from Event Furniture .We brought in our blossom trees for height, the yellow chevron runners were dressed with mercury votives, clear taper holders, clear vases with blooms in single types rather than mixed to give a simple elegant feel. We sourced some gold mercury glass vases and planted them with mini daffodils. We created a pretty entrance with box and bay trees, sprayed our vintage ladders gold and filled crates with mini daffodils to reflect the easter time and the grooms Welsh heritage. The cake table was dressed with a wooden plant stand that we filled with mini daffs and little vases. The cake smelt incredible and we popped lots of pretty heads on it to make the yellow pop on the chocolate.
We organized some big light up letters from Typical Type to set the backdrop and brought in lots of festoon lighting, mirror balls and chalkboards to dress the village hall. These were sourced from Welovethis. The results were fabulous with lots of beautiful touches by the bride such as the place names, gold hanging candleholders, paper lanterns and streamers. The whole day was captured beautifully by James Melia photography., you can see some of the images here, with a few of our detail shots.It was pretty perfect, hope you enjoy the images.
