Guests arrived at 1.30pm for Lisa and Aaron’s glamorous wedding, and enjoyed a glass of elderflower fizz until being ushered to the wedding barn for the ceremony at 2.30pm.
Lisa and Aaron’s twin sons started the bridal procession, followed by Lisa’s bridesmaids, and finally Lisa and her dad. They had a cellist and a violinist to play Patchbel’s Cannon in D for the aisle procession, and to play throughout their drinks reception.
Following the wedding ceremony, guests were guided to the terrace where they enjoyed a drinks reception of cocktails and soft drinks provided by Taylor’s Tavistock, and beers in ice baths.
Lisa and Aaron had a blush pink and ivory colour scheme for the day, and a romantic but glamorous overall style. They chose buttermilk tablecloths and ghost chairs for their wedding breakfast, and hired stylist Julie from dream wedding makers who provided their centrepiece decor. They had ‘selfie sticks’ on each table to encourage guests to take lots of pictures. Lisa and Aaron also hired our Ever After ice-cream trike, which was especially popular with the children!
Their wedding breakfast took place at 4pm and consisted of a starter of either leek and potato soup or chicken pate, followed by a man course of roast beef, yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings. For dessert they had a choice of crème brulé or chocolate brownie, which guests enjoyed whilst the speeches took place.
At 6.30pm guests moved onto the terrace for tea and coffee. Unfortunately the weather was not on their side, however we made space for their garden games indoors and brought the giant deckchair into the marquee so they had a bit more of the outdoors inside.
They cut their cake at 8pm, and had ‘The Salvation’ play their first dance and evening music. Taylor’s Tavistock provided drinks throughout the day, including their pay bar in the evening. Their evening buffet was served at 9pm and was a choice of fish and chips or a mini burger and chips.
