From the bride, Karen: The style of our wedding was modern french chic – as our venue had just been through a makeover, it was fitting to make the style sleek french style, lots of chrome, shiny surfaces whilst still maintaining a ‘high tea’ feel to the room.

Our ceremony was completely composed by us and reflected our sense of humor, whilst maintaining a level of seriousness. There were a lot of laughs throughout and 3 surprise readings from 3 special women close to us. At the end of the day, we wanted our guests to enjoy the big party we put on without having to travel between ceremony and reception. We served champagne for guests whilst the ceremony took place and had an open bar all night.

We wanted lots of different areas for our guests to be involved in, from our high tea station with personalized tea bags, to the typewriter desk, to the huge desert buffet, the cupcake tower and the separate lolly buffet. The dessert and lolly buffets were a great icebreaker for our guests.
