It has been a while since my last Wedding post and upon flicking through my photos I have a few party event photos to share, but I will save that for next time :)

The following photos are from a very small wedding. Fifty guests I believe.
It was a lovely colour scheme of blue and white and the chair covers where supplied by a local company who come along and put them on for you. Great for us who were getting the rest of the place ready.
The couple got married on site and where joined by close friends and family for the wedding breakfast.
Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of this, but the table plan was.. let's say different.

The bride had allowed her close friends 13 year old son put it together.
He had chosen super cars for the pieces of paper and wrote on top where everyone was sat. You needed pretty good eye vision to read it.
The only small hitch, and you really can not tell unless you look closely was that the cake had started to slowly collapse at the back.
The baker, who delivered the cake to the hotel, tried to blame the staff and then the temperature of the room. The cheek!

By getting a friend to do your sitting plan, it would work out a lot cheaper. The newly weds where very happy with the set up and the way the day went.

As you may be aware, I'm starting my dissertation and will be looking at the correlation between the cost of a wedding and the quality of the wedding.
Do you need to spend more to have an amazing day?


  1. They blamed the staff and room temperature!?

    Having a cake flop is understandable - but take credit for your actions, am I right?

  2. They even went as far to say that we dropped the cupcakes as some of the icing on top was flat!
    Safe to say that that particular baker is banned from the hotel, despite the cake being scrummy!
