Last weekend was wedding central!!
1stly the biggy, Willia
m and Katherine tied the knot on Friday (as we all know!)
and then on Saturday....

My friend's Paul and Dee had their Reception (they got married in Gretna Green on the 16th April)

Dee wore her big white dress for the 2nd time and Paul wore his tartan (he's a Forbes so had a proper family one!!) I as the "Matron of Honour" co-ordinated, along with Dee, the rest!! Starting with flowers that were a disappointment, Dee ordered the flo
wers (silk so she could have them for the 2 events) from the same lady who made her tiara. The bouquet was BAD! So... I ripped it apart and made a new one!!! We decided not to hire the table centres from this lady, so I (with 2 weeks to spare) talked to a friend in the school yard who is a graphic designer and has her own wedding stationery business, her mum did the table centres for us! Fab job, thanks to both Gemma and her mum Jan!

Dee and Paul had invited close family and friends to arrive at the Reception at 6pm for photos, and then inside for the starter and main courses, with speeches after. The "evening" guests were invited to "Dessert and Dance" the dessert was a personal triumph!!! I used my contacts (friends) that I have made through the various markets that I have been at regularly, and Clare from Little Welsh Deli and Rachel from Cupcakes by Rachel are 2 of the bestest and most wonderful cake makers I know.... added to this Becca's amazing "Fancy Vintage China" to display it all on and a few little chocolate touches here and there and this is w
hat you get!.....

Looked amazing didn't it?! I am very impressed that it all came together so beautifully, and Dee and Paul had a wonderful evening.
