Your Bristol & Somerset Wedding - August/September 2022 (Issue 90)

Our wedding cake consisted of three tiers of fruit, chocolate and lemon. There was also one fake tier with ivory icing and some g reenery decoration. We included a frame to remember relatives who couldn’t be there. We put this in the snug alongside a basket of spa slippers so guests could change out of their heels ready for the dancefloor. The basket of blankets went down well too as it was very chilly! We kept our centrepieces quite simple as the venue is so beautiful, we felt it didn’t need too much. We had a vase holding a candle surrounded by a flower wreath on each table. Our flowers were all silk. The bridesmaids flower rings were our favourite pieces. Tom’s mum finished my bouquet so that it was a surprise on the day. Our wedding favours were bottles of homemade sl oe gin. My family have been making it for years so it was very personal to us. Our table plan was made from an upcycled frame, which we painted and stuck flowers on to. We used hessian to back it and fit with our rustic theme. 34
