Your Yorkshire Wedding - March/April 2022 (Issue 53)

Bowcliffe made sharing platters and boards for both courses so everyone shared together. Then there was an afternoon tea style dessert table. All these were designed by us and not from their standard menu. It had a communal, shared feel – it was all about togetherness and inclusion. Our centrepieces were a mix of highs and lows, so everyone could see each other. We chose pastel-coloured candles in rose gold holders and little geometric terrariums. The cake was made by our friend Siobhan – three layers (lemon, white chocolate and raspberry, and gin and tonic) – lightly butter iced with a naked feel. We had a backdrop made to be positioned at the end of the aisle; a geometric design with our initials in the middle – a centrepiece for the ceremony. The favours were succulents in antique teacups – a sustainable gift, alongside seeds in an envelope. Our flowers were sunflowers (Dan’s favourite), hy drangeas (Tom’s favourite), roses, dahlia’s, delphinium and freesia with plenty of lush eucalyptus. 24
