WEDDING AT HOME IN JUNE
All of the examples in this section are of our own work, which we hope will give you some inspiration for your event. Looking at past events can help to establish what you like, and don’t like, to develop a clear picture of your requirements. At this stage some people choose to employ a wedding or party planner to bring all of their ideas together into a coherent brief.
Whilst every event is completely bespoke, this section aims to outline how we interpret a brief, the equipment we suggest and a guide to the costs. We try to be clear about what we provided and what was supplied by the client, party planner or other contractors.

“A huge thanks to all of you & your team who worked so hard to ensure that the whole wedding week-end was a huge success.”
A wedding for 120 guests which required a complex of marquees to host the ceremony, reception drinks, wedding breakfast and evening party.
Being a private garden the function required a separate marquee for the caterers, mobile toilets, heating, a generator with electrical distribution to the kitchen, stage, marquee and garden lighting.
The client wanted an informal vintage style with a romantic feel and to incorporate the garden.
The space available required a series of interconnected marquees.
The reception marquee had clear PVC sides and roof to maximise views of the house and garden. The dining marquee and the kitchen were on a gravel courtyard and required and a wooden floor.
For an informal country feel we used an ivory pleated lining, a neutral carpet and up lighting. They had vintage country furniture laid out in a banquet style.
The marquee was built over two days. On the first day we installed the flooring and structures, and on the second day we laid the carpet, installed the lining, lighting and electrical distribution and set up the furniture. The loos and generator where delivered and set up.
Challenges at this venue included spanning a garden wall and adjoining the marquee to the house in two places.
Due to restricted access it was necessary to limit the number of vehicles on site at any one time and to coordinate delivery times with other contractors.
We provided the marquees, flooring, lining, lighting, dance floor, furniture, loos, heaters, generator and electrical distribution.
The catering was provided by Indulgence.
The brides mother arranged the flowers with the help of a family friend.
