Marquee Reception at home in Shropshire with Church Wedding Ceremony

Oct 7, 2020 | Wedding

This lovely country church wedding, had a marquee reception at home in Shropshire. The couple chose a clear marquee, so that their guests could appreciate the woodland setting. It was beautifully styled with Eddison light bulbs and lots of hanging foliage. The Bride, Olivia looked so elegant in a Suzanne Neville gown, which was complimented by her full length cathedral veil. After a moving ceremony in church and some fantastic confetti throwing, Olivia and Scott jumped into a vintage Morgan and drove to their reception. I really love it when couples drive themselves from church to the reception. It looks so much fun!

Weddings with a Marquee reception at home are a real favourite of mine. I absolutely loved the styling of this wedding, especially the hanging foliage – stunning! All of the flowers and hanging foliage were the work of the talented Wild Mint Floral Design The Groom, Scott, had worked tirelessly, in the run up to the wedding, to clear an area in the woods to site the marquee. I think it’s fair to say, he did an amazing job. The gardens of Olivia’s Aunt’s home, joined onto the grounds of stunning Lilleshall Abbey. The Abbey ruins made a stunning backdrop for some of the photos. It was lovely for guests to be able to have a wander around the historic ruins too, chatting and eating their canapés.

After a relaxed drinks reception, guests had a short walk to the woodland marquee. Heartfelt speeches followed, with a lovely tribute to Olvia’s Dad, by raising a ‘glass of the black stuff’

Just a little stroll through the garden and voila you’re in the grounds of Lilleshall Abbey. How amazing to have this practically in your back garden! I had a wander with Scott and Olivia, for some lovely relaxed couple portraits and I couldn’t resist using the ruins as a backdrop for the photos of their bridal party too.

How beautiful does the clear marquee look? I love the trestle tables, they give a lovely rustic feel and make dining a really sociable experience.
