felicity & stuart, may 2017
vintage garden party wedding
felicity & stuart held their lovely vintage garden party wedding here at ever after in may 2017. the weather forecast for the day was showery so we put up the wet weather awning on the wedding barn and had arrival drinks under the wet weather canopies. guests moved straight from arrival drinks into the barn without getting wet.
flowers by dartmoor flowers included a foliage arch on the wedding barn, centrepieces for the wedding breakfast tables, fabulous bouquets in muted vintage garden colours with peonies, roses, stocks & dusky grey foliage plus hair & cake flowers.
after an emotional wedding ceremony (it stopped raining just before the arrival of the bride), mini sausage & mustard mash & mini thai fish cake canapes washed down with cocktails & wheelbarrows of beer kept guests happy during the drinks reception.
felicity & stuart chose round tables with silver grey table linen & ghost chairs for the wedding breakfast in the marquee to reflect the vintage garden party wedding feel. guests enjoyed slow cooked rib tip followed by sticky toffee pudding.
after food, guests moved to the wedding barn for one of the best ever best mens’ speech complete with professionally choreographed & edited film, copies of which were handed out to guests. there may have been some guests wandering round in blond wigs in an impression tribute to the groom.
the weather cleared up for the confetti shot, couple portraits on the river walk & guests photos on the lawn. wayward sons provided live music in the evening (the dance floor was FULL!) & a cheese cake & home made cakes brought in by guests were served later.
felicity & stuart also provided party bags with a bottle of water, mini burger & chips jellies, alka seltzer & other necessaries before guests boarded the buses back to their accommodation.
