Your West Midlands Wedding - April/May 2023 (Issue 85)

The Cake Shop Bedworth Ltd provided our three-tiered cake, which was covered in white fondant and autumnal flowers. Ansty Hall provided our five-course wedding breakfast and evening buffet. Every time we drove past Ansty Hall, we always said that we wanted to tie the knot there. It’s so beautiful and overlooks a lovely view. We decided to stay there one night after we got engaged and knew instantly that it was the place we were going to get married. For our favours, we gave our guests jam made from the plums in our garden. We also created jars filled with the dry ingredients needed to create apple cinnamon muffins. As the theme was autumnal, we liked the idea of harvesting and giving our guests food. Our centrepieces were different coloured pumpkins, which we picked at our local farm. They were placed on log slices along with flowers from The Village Flower Shop. I created our table plan from a pallet that I painted to look rustic and wrote everyone’s names on tags. 36
