15 Oct Louise and Denny’s Essex Wedding
I had the pleasure of planning the Summer wedding of Louise and Denny Nash earlier this year. The couple had chosen to marry in the local church and to follow with a reception in the garden of the groom’s family home.
Louise wanted elegant with a little bit of bling, afterall this was an Essex wedding, the colour scheme chosen was champagne and cream. There are a lot of logistics involved with planning a marquee wedding, is the ground level? where is the power coming from? where will guests park? how do suppliers get to the marquee with equipment? and the list goes on. What I absolutely love about a marquee weddings is that it is a blank canvas to do exactly what you want with.
We were working to quite a tight budget and you would be wrong to think that because we weren’t hiring a venue it would be cheaper. Marquee’s can work out very expensive and you have to start out by setting a strict budget.
I recommended some suppliers that I thought would fit it with both the style and budget of the wedding but Louise was great at sourcing some of her own suppliers. Many I hadn’t worked with before including the photographer, videoographer and the DJ and all of whom I would happily recommend to any future client. In fact Steve, from SImply Wedding Movies provided me with all of the video footage which I have edited into a short clip for you here.
I will tell you more about the problems with the weather, boggy fields, changing locations, broken toilets and how we remedied everything in another post but enjoy the pictures and video.
