We chose a green and white theme for the florals, to keep things quite classic. Liz from Blue Sky Flowers created a garland that hung between the chandeliers in the marquee, and the beautiful centrepieces that matched our tables so well. My favourite piece, however, was my bouquet; I love that it was slightly wild whilst still being structured. - Emma & Will
Glass Marquee at Family HomeWill's parents live in the English countryside, surrounded by trees. They have a beautiful garden with multiple greenhouses, so we chose to have a glass marquee that almost looked like an extension of the house. Whilst the marquee itself was quite modern, we wanted a slight rustic tone to the day, and decided to have long wooden banqueting tables and cross back chairs to match.
We wanted simple food and flavours that tasted delicious. Our wedding planner, Louise, introduced us to Kalm Kitchen, who we fell in love with straight away. They presented the canapés on beautiful mirrors and in bird cages, followed by charcuterie sharing platters for everyone when we first sat down in the marquee. Being from New Zealand, I wanted to make sure we had little Kiwi touches throughout the wedding day, so worked with Kalm Kitchen to source NZ Lamb for our main dish, as well as pairing it with NZ red and white wines. A traditional wedding cake was not particularly important to us, so we decided to have a dessert table with three mini options to choose from, along with a one tier gold flaked lemon drizzle cake from Fifi’s Cakery. We didn’t actually eat the cake on the night, so shared it the next day at a BBQ with our friends and family – hands down the best cake we have ever tasted! - Emma & Will
