Carrying on from Part One
The drinks reception was held in front of the Singing Theatre where Alex’s Dad and band partner entertained the guests with some music.
Meanwhile, the pavilion was efficiently turned around for the wedding breakfast. Alex and Annette go to the zoo. A lot. So the names for the table centres were pretty easy to think up. The flowers in pots looked brilliant, teamed along with miniature moss in pots for the place settings.
Some time should be spent here acknowledging the skill of Larmer Tree’s wedding co-ordinator, Gail. We have worked with a good few now and she is by far one of the most pleasant, hard-working and competent ladies we’ve come across.
Wedding breakfast time!
We’ve had such rubbish weather this past month or so and much darker evenings than we should have throughout August. Luckily, we managed to get the last slither of dusk light before the evening kicked off.
“WOW – a cake!”
Alex and Annette’s First Dance was pretty spectacular. Lulling everyone into a false sense of security with an understated shuffle to “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” they then proceeded to bust out some seriously big showtime moves. Amazing stuff!
We’ve already ranted and raved about her before, but our good friend, Charlotte aka. DJ Chaka Kant (and randomly also an old school pal of Alex) entertained the troops with her fantastic dancefloor-fillers. Ever the conscientious DJ who takes pride in her work she even put together a little Spotify playlist for the couple after the wedding night so they could relive the action whenever they felt like it. You can listen to it here if you like, too!
Posted with thanks and congratulations to Alex and Annette x
