Following Sarah and Simon’s handfasting ceremony it was time for everyone to enjoy the wedding celebration at Symondsbury Manor. A string quartet played as a champagne drinks reception was served together with bangers and mash as nibbles. Lawn games included a giant connect 4 and skittle alley, which was lots of fun both for the children and adults.
Wedding table decorations had a festival theme with wellies as the table centrepiece, that had wild flowers and names of festivals as the table names. The wedding breakfast was served in the marquee and organised by Discerning Taste. Food included a hog roast and home made cakes. Speeches were made by Sarah’s Mom, Simon and his Best Lady. I love marquee weddings, they provide such a lovely backdrop and airy space for a wedding celebration.
Simon’s production crew had set up LED lighting around the grounds of the Dorset country manor house, so at night they glowed and changed colour, making a fantastic festival style atmosphere. A DJ played party tunes and Grandma was first on the dance floor to ‘throw some shapes’! Following the first dance the guests partied late into the night.
