Katie and Max 24-6-17

12 October 2017


Katie and Max were the first couple to use our new marquee!!

These two were super relaxed are their day really reflected this.

Katie and Max wanted a ceremony area which had its own identity and then later this would transform into the dancing area on the grass. Hire Love were perfect for the job building a silver birch arch at the top of the aisle and then this was then joined to festoon lighting. This looked stunning during the day and again in the evening. At the top of the aisle church pews also from Hire Love were used and these were then later moved to the fire pit area!

The ceremony was performed by Karina at Simply Ceremonies and she conducted a beautiful ceremony which was nicely personalised to the couple and featured readings and personal vows.


After the ceremony Pimms, Prosecco and Wheelbarrow of beers were provided by Alberrys on location alongside Stella Grove’s super tasty canapes and with some added entertainment of a magician to keep guests entertained. Due to it being such a gorgeous day we moved some of Hire Loves lounge seating out onto the grass and this worked perfectly! (It was later moved back into the Night Yard inside area for a chill out area.)


Howling Bassett photography took Katie and Max for some beautiful shots in the wild flower meadow and with Katies boquet being full of wild flowers from Blooming Green it couldn’t have been more perfect!

For the main meal Stella Grove and her team prepared a sharing meal of BBQ spatchcock chicken and ribeye of beef alongside some fresh and vibrant salads.

For dessert was a cheese tower supplied by Stella Grove from the Cheesemakers of Canterbury

The evening kicked off with the band Stereo Rising playing outside inviting guests to dance on the grass!

The day couldn’t have gone any better it looked beautiful the service was fabulous from Stella and her team and Brendan and his team and Hire Love did a great job styling. It was great to work with Andy from Howling Basset and always a stunning service conducted by Karina.
