Each of the tables at Daniel and Helen’s wedding were named after significant dates in their lives, such as ‘4th June 2011 – We finally got engaged in the Maldives’.
The place cards consisted of small easels with miniature blackboards displayed the guests’ names. As a wedding favour each guest received a small brown bag filled with brightly coloured macarons from a local patisserie.
The decorations were kept to a minimum at the reception as the location was beautiful enough! Some ‘just married’ bunting and a dose of twinkling fairy lights was enough to transform the chateau into a wedding wonderland.
As well as a polaroid guest book to create even more wedding memories, the couple hired a caricaturist to sketch the guests. Singer Jamie McGuire played at the evening party, singing songs with his guitar, and was even joined by Helen for a duet at one point!
