Made by Heather’s talented Auntie, the traditional four-tier wedding cake was offered as a separate dessert and featured fruit, plain sponge and chocolate layers. The 200 evening guests all enjoyed a buffet reception before watching Heather and Dan dance their first dance to Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together. With the day nearly complete, all that was left was music from 'The Amberlights', found on Affordaband.com. The band was a huge hit with the wedding party and had every guest (almost without exception) up and dancing until late into the night.
The impeccable organisation and helpful service of all the staff at Down Hall resulted in a stress free run up to the wedding, leaving both Heather and Dan to concentrate on the more exciting things related to wedding planning, including arranging their luxurious safari and beach honeymoon to Kenya and Zanzibar.
