Part 4) The Final Chapter "The Wedding Reception" at Chris & Yvette's Epic Wedding at The Inn at Whitewell
So the final part of this wonderously luscious and opulent wedding day, the ceremony is on our previous posting so if you're joining the story party way through you'll need to scroll back three postings to The Rehearsal Dinner!
So here we are back where we started at the completely fabulous Inn at Whitewell, this is a venue where magic happens, I love it for its rustic, slightly shabby chic, atmospheric vibe, the C&B team headed up by the lovely Emma are beyond brilliant and as an entire team we all without exception look forward to weddings at The Inn at Whitewell...
The guests were greeted by the lovely Master of Ceremonies
We'd dressed the simple staircase leading to the Bridal Suite with Ivy trails, Peonies, Hydrangeas and Fragrant Stocks
On entering the magnificent Marquee a seriously grand floral Seating Plan was to the right
Each section represented a table with the list of guests names clearly printed on heavenly stationery
To the left a gloriously dressed bridal marquee, the table designs were a combination of Crystal Candelabras and Silver Candlesticks (Chris liked one and Yvette liked the other so a compromise was reached and we did both!)
The top table a spectacular "Hanging Gardens of Babylon" design of Phalaenopsis Orchids, Roses, Peonies and Hydrangeas were literally flowing from the table
A surprise for a little later in the proceedings from behind a secret curtain will appear "Escala" you may remember them from Britain's Got Talent, on this image they are just rehearsing!
Each ladies place setting included a beautiful white Rose
In lu of Wedding Presents the couple had asked for donations to be made to the NSPCC
On the balcony just off the main marquee a voluptuous garland dressed the fence
A delicious chocolate cake from Slattery's in Manchester
One of the silver Candlestick designs, a sphere of fresh flowers arranged on an elegant silver candlestick, in the marquee we introduced a touch of the Mocha shade used on the chair hoods
At the base of each of our designs a cluster of glass vases dressed with pearls, lace and diamantes were filled with delicate posies of fresh flowers, each guest would be invited to take one home at the end of the evening
The first act on to entertain Yvette and Chris' guests was this fabulous steel band
The Bird Cage Card Collector surrounded with a garden of fresh flowers
The Crystal Candelabras were placed down the centre of the Marquee, we included fragrant Tuberosa, Phalaenopsis Orchids, Quicksand, Amnesia, Norma Jean & Vendella Roses, Astrantia, Sweet Peas and fragrant Herbs, ensuring a heavenly scent throughout the Marquee
Our Crystal Candelabras really did look breath taking
Our Silver Candlesticks looked superb too!
Gorgeous full and blooming white Peonies
White Phalaenopsis Orchids
The team from The Inn were busy handing around hearty Canapes
Yvette and Chris' initials looked superb on the Balcony just off the Marquee
The next act on was this fabulous New Orleans Jazz Band
The posies from Church were placed on all of the outdoor tables and looked fabulous
The Garland stretched the full length of the wall
Next to the camera collector a lovely bouquet for our lovely Bride Yvette to throw later on
Even in the "Powder Room" fresh flowers were there to welcome the ladies, every possible detail had been thought about and considered and duly decorated!
The table Names were hung from our table designs
Our Work here was done, many, many thanks to the lovely Chris & Yvette for choosing Flower Design Events to create their wedding flowers we had a wonderful time and slept for about 24 hours after it!!!!!
