    A weekend of contrasts

    Posted by No Comments

    Its been a busy week for venue styling your weddings and events. More mid-week weddings, chairs to be covered and crystal globes to dazzle. We dashed around Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire this weekend and it just occurred to me at 6pm on Saturday evening what a contrast of events took place.

    First Stop – Cockliffe Country House

    Dual sash colours of satin red and satin black with personalised embroidery

    A bold colour statement for Lee and Diane who had their ceremony in the house at Cockliffe and then transferred to the marquee in the idyllic grounds.

    On Saturday I was tying delicious cadburys purple sashes in beautiful bows at Risley Hall, Derbyshire

    The chair covers are the venue’s own – sashes provided by Nobility

    Next Stop – Quorn Grange Hotel, Leicestershire for more purple sashes with sparkly diamante rings and crystal globe centre pieces for Kim and Barry’s wedding.

    Flowers by Sarah with our voile plum sashes and diamante rings. The Globes made an appearance for the wedding breakfast

    Next Stop – Stapleford Park for 190 guests at the Prince’s Trust Summer Ball

    Next Stop – home to pick up the children and head back to Leicestershire.

    Next Stop – VW Bus Stop Over weekend.

    Our faithful split screen red and white beauty.

    Within the space of an hour (and as the crow flies) within a distance of 8 miles, I had gone from drinking tea in the finest china at Stapleford Park – thanks to the staff who could see we were wilting slightly after the first 120 covers,  – to drinking tea from camping mugs boiled in a Billly can. Now thats a contrast – from grandour to grass.
