Karen wanted the décor at the reception to be quite simple. They hired All Seated to decorate the reception, with navy chair sashes and table runners. They also provided a twinkle light backdrop. Each of the tables were decorated with silver mirrored goblets in differing sizes, filled with candles.
Instead of buying wedding favours, Matthew and Karen made a donation to Cancer Research UK, and each of their guests received a pin badge.
The couple hired lots of entertainment for their wedding reception, including singer Brett Smith. Brett was joined by Matthew in singing Jason Mraz’s ‘I Won’t Give Up’, dedicated to Emerson.
The couple also made use of Tankersley Manor’s resident DJ, and hired Kai McKenzie, a Michael Buble tribute, as their first dance was to Michael Buble’s ‘Close Your Eyes’.
