Gillian & Mark’s Real Wedding

Gillian and Mark planned and organised a butterfly themed wedding in 16 months after their romantic and very personal engagement. They invited a total of 66 guests to witness their church ceremony followed by a further 64 guests to the evening reception. The couple had a budget of £10,000 and made sure that every detail of their wedding day was immaculate!


The Wedding Cake

Gill and Mark’s wedding cake had been bought from Marks and Spencer and then decorated with beautiful flowers by Monica F. Hewitt the florist.  It was a traditional round 3 tier cake that we stacked on butterfly cake separators and decorated with brown satin ribbon, pink and ivory gerberas on top of each layer and pink wire butterflies. 


The evening was filled with entertainment including a magician, some very personal speeches, sky lanterns, a DJ and to end the night all of the wedding guests watched Mark and Gill gallop off in to the sunset in a beautiful horse drawn carriage.

The newlywed couple spent a very relaxing 2 weeks at a beach resort in Kenya for their honeymoon which included a 3 day safari in the middle. The happy couple enjoyed their wedding day immensely, but wish that it would have gone just that little bit slower so that it would have lasted longer.
