Dan & Steve’s Wollaton Hall wedding was all about the guest experience! Ensuring everyone was entertained, well fed, well watered... and surprised by their unconventional day. Their colour scheme was based around their living room, featuring mainly mustard, teal, fuchsia and orange. We’re loving the colourful bunting, neon sign, and smoke bomb portraits, which were all beautifully captured by Recommended Supplier, SL Photo and Film. Alongside videography from Gill & Gee Media. We’re also loving the fact they displayed their Tinder conversations. Who else is brave enough to do that!?

Make sure you've got a good planner/venue manager on the day and assign friends/family to take responsibility for stuff. Such as making sure guests add to the photo wall!

Wollaton Hall Wedding

Dan & Steven wanted an unconventional wedding without following traditions! They opted for plenty of their favourite things, such as afternoon tea, and handpicked craft gins, and recreated their favourite takeaway in the evening. They also included Dan’s homemade chutney and Steve’s banana bread, which guests could take home as favours.


Dan & Steve found incredible suppliers who worked hard alongside them to ensure their day was the best it possibly could be! From their photographer, SL Photo and Film, who allowed them to feel comfortable and de-stress to Bees Flowers who created beautiful florals. They also enlisted the help of family - and you know we love those DIY moments! 

Dan & Steve's orchid centrepieces were gifted after the wedding - a great sustainable option!

Make sure you have downtime - even if it's just 10 minutes!
