Luxe London Inspired Wedding by Hall & Co. Event Design
Working in the events industry is hard work with long hours but the rewards make every worry and every hour worth it…
Every couple we meet, get to know and watch marry is special to us. Through from the initial meeting to serving their first drinks as newlyweds, we get to know them as individuals and what they’re like as a couple.
One wedding this past September, a large affair of 110 at The Granary Barns, Wooditton, Newmarket (A venue we know and trust), A&L arrived by Range Rover after wedding in Central Cambridge, followed by a flock of guests with confetti in their hair, suit collars and chic fascinators.
A, dressed in Eliza Jane Howell, glitter heels and a veil as long as her delicate embroidered dress, first came to us back in 2016 enquiring catering and styling for her wedding. As a chef in London, both A and L are huge foodies with a passion for high quality, beautifully presented food with wine suited perfectly to their chosen dishes.
Both living in London, they wanted to bring the eclectic and trendy cocktail scene to their drinks reception. Opting for their favourite ‘Britz Spritz’ and ‘Mandarin Mule’, the guests were welcomed in style, with fizz and a selection of soft drinks for those wanting to take it slow before the party kicks off.
Mini mackerel and dill scotch eggs, oysters with shallot vinaigrette, rabbit and sage rillet were among some of the canapes served.
As regular street food venue fans, A & L chose to have their main and cake as dessert on sharing boards, breaking up the formality of having a plated starter, dishing up the food along their beautifully rich wooden long tables hired in from Classic Crockery, a London based event hire company.
Guests dined in the warmth of flint walls and high wooden beams, with lanterns on festoons and foliage cascading above their heads. White, grey, copper and navy lanterns flooded the barn roof above them, creating an atmosphere so eye catching even our waitresses were captivated.
The wonderful Marie Wootton captured the day, with her beautifully vibrant photos, rich in emotion and passion. We thoroughly enjoyed going through the photos, from the Church to after the first dance, every guest was smiling and in awe at the love of A & L.
