Your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding - November/December 2022 (Issue 66)

We had a BMW 7 Series to get us from A to B. Collette and Steve, the owners of the company we hired it from, were absolutely awesome and a pleasure to have as part of our day. We started the day’s dining with a selection of fi ve canapés that seemed to never stop coming! Our three-course wedding breakfast featured leek and potato soup, roast chicken with roast po tatoes and mixed root vegetable mash, and chocolate brownie with whi te chocolate ice cream and caramelised popcorn to finish. In the evening we had fish and chips, plus a variety of pizzas. The food throughout was sensa tional! Michael is a geologist, so we went back to Anglesey a couple of weeks before the wedding and borrowed lots of pretty rocks from near the spot we got engaged. We had them dotted around the venue, forming part of the centrepieces. Each table also had a gorgeous goblet of bright pink flowers at the centre. Our four-tier cake of lemon, vanilla and chocolate was iced in white and decorated with bright pink and navy dots. The reception tables were all named after our favourite places. Rhoscolyn was the name of the top table as this is where we got engaged. Our favours were wooden coasters with our guests’ names engraved on them. We wanted something that people would be able to keep. It’s great to visit friends’ and family’s homes now and see them on their coffee tables! The table plan featured jars of pink flowers matching my bouquet 43 REAL WEDDINGS
