Marquee Wedding


Since she was a little girl playing in the garden with her siblings, this Angels bride had always dreamt of getting married just there in the grounds of her family home. Shortly after her fiancé got down on one knee and asked the all-important question, Sara contacted The Angels Events to create them the perfect marquee wedding.

The ceremony took place in the garden house which was transformed from Sara’s old playroom into the place she would say ‘I Do’ using exquisite blush toned draping and brightly coloured garden floral arrangements. To ensure their guests were sheltered from the height of summer sunshine, or the typical Yorkshire summer rain, an open sided marquee was constructed and lined in the same tones as the garden house. Following the wedding ceremony, guests moved only a short distance onto the terrace for a beautiful champagne reception in the sunshine.

A little further down the lawn, a second marquee was constructed to house the wedding breakfast. To find their seats guests consulted a table plan made of hanging antique keys; a subtle nod to Sara’s favourite book, Alice In Wonderland. The sugary toned floral colour palette of cream and pink peonies and David Austin roses that surrounded the guests was almost edible, with only mild tonal colour changes.

Throughout the wedding breakfast guests were entertained by a handpicked selection of classical musicians, including a pianist, cellist, and vocalist. The pianist performed from a white grand piano, positioned on a stage in the centre of the marquee, which as the day went by turned into a fabulous platform from which the saxophonist could perform amongst the guests. As the evening progressed, a sensational Persian themed star lit nightclub was revealed in which the guests danced the night away.

This extraordinary marquee wedding was perfectly hidden within the family garden, just as Sara had always dreamt.
