The celebration continued on in Inglewood’s reception area, which used to be an old hay shed! It certainly had plenty of character, being cosy and warm with a beautiful open fire as a centrepiece. The guests all made good use of the dance floor, and were treated to an impromptu song from a dear friend of Michelle and Fraser. Overall, I think they couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!
Comments from Michelle and Fraser:
Special Highlights/Events on the day you would like to share:
Honestly the ceremony was perfect, Deb had created a warm & relaxed feeling in the chapel before the ceremony started so our guests were very much part of it. They cheered, laughed and clapped, and we had so many comments about how great she was during the night. The ceremony absolutely set the scene for a fabulous, fun, and relaxed night! (The reception to our second reading ‘Oh, the places you’ll go’, from Dr Seuss, was also fabulous!!)
Our friend Sophie Alexandra (check her out on Facebook) took over the stage and performed a song she wrote for her own wedding just a few weeks earlier – the entire crowd was captivated. She’s an amazing songwriter and performer and it was a fabulous surprise.
Our photographer, Lizzy, and her assistant, Clara, also fitted in perfectly – we got great comments about how relaxed and fun Lizzy was and no one, absolutely no one, held back on the night, even with a camera pointed at them, which goes to prove that she made everyone feel totally at home!
