Emma and Jeff’s autumn wedding at Pendrell Hall
It has been a busy Autumn for me this year and a good number of those weddings have been at Pendrell Hall.
Pendrell is great for weddings in all seasons. The vast gardens have plenty of evergreen trees to give some colour regardless of the season and the venue is a beautiful inside as outside.
The day started off with Emma’s bridal prep in The Cottage. The Cottage is one of the two buildings within the grounds of Pendrell Hall that can be hired out the night before or after the wedding. Emma had enlisted the skills of award winning make up artist Helen Pearson and hair stylist Lyndsay Warburton.
I knew this was going to be a fun wedding when Emma and some of the bridesmaids spontaneously bust out the dance moves to macarena in the kitchen! Start as you mean to go on eh girls!
Pendrell Hall wedding ceremony
Emma and Jeff had their ceremony in The Morning room. With over 100 day guests the room was close to capacity with family and friends in attendance to wish the newlyweds well.
After the ceremony we were able to nip outside for photographs and confetti before preparing for the wedding breakfast.
Christian Fletcher Magician
The couple had booked Christian Fletcher to entertain the guests during the drinks reception. Coincidentally I had been working with Christian a few days before at Pendrell Halls taster events. Even although I’ve seen the same tricks several times they still amaze me and I have no ideal how he does them!
Host The Roast
One meal option at Pendrell Hall is called “Host the roast”. This is where a guest is nominated from each table to carve the meat for the other guests. This is a fun option which is great for breaking the ice when guests may not know one another. Emma and Jeff had bought funny aprons for the carvers which went down a treat.
Later into the evening Strictly weddings DJ got the party going and the dance floor was in full swing as I left.
I had a great tie at Emma and Jeff’s wedding. The couple are clearly haplessly in love and totally relaxed in one another company.
