Dave and Nadine
Italian Garden Wedding Pagoda
Italian Garden at Arley Arboretum (hired from The Roger & Douglas Turner Charitable Trust via Arley House) in May’s spring sunshine.
The finer details
The couple being huge Star Wars fans, chose a fitting date to hold their nuptials, May the 4th (be with you!). The bride entered the Italian Garden to a classic love song from a scene in the movie. The vintage sounds of the Cherry Belles, a classic 1940’s band, had the guests in the party mood whilst sipping on classic Pimm’s cocktails, that followed a beautiful wedding ceremony in the stunning walled Italian Garden.
Valentia Suite, Arley House
Dave and Nadine had chosen to celebrate their Wedding Breakfast with their closest friends and family in the Valentia Suite at Arley House. The Star Wars theme continued, featuring classic scenes from the movies that the bride had designed herself as their centrepieces, with a dash of wildflowers on soft grey linen. Guests enjoyed our signature rustic sharing BBQ boards and the couple’s trio of favourite desserts.
The evening celebrations
The party really began after dinner with guests enjoying the couples quirky photobooth, complete with a full-size Boba Fett cut-out and the all-important lightsabre to capture the magic. The dancing began with the couple’s favourite band – who really got the party going. At 9pm guests enjoyed our classic mini fish and chips, served usherette style on our beautiful wooden trays.
A truly memorable day for a very lovely couple.
