Slaley Hall Weddings - Sarah & Terry’s Reception” is a portfolio piece from December 2013. The photos were taken by Anna, one of our Flawless team members; and some of the guests.

When Sarah and I met for the first time, with one of her beautiful boys and Katie, one of her lovely bridesmaids; we spent most of the first hour drinking tea and laughing!

But then down to business….. We were so delighted to help make her dream a reality.

Slaley Hall Weddings

After a ceremony at St James church Morpeth, Sarah and Terry had chosen the dramatic Slaley Hall to celebrate with their friends and family.

Slaley Hall is a beautiful wedding venue set in 1,000 acres of Northumbrian moorland and the reception took place in the Keilder Suite which allowed the room to be opened up for the evening celebrations and of course make room for all the dancing!

The Theme

Sarah dreamt of a vintage glamour theme with hundreds of twinkling candles, mercury glass items, vintage glassware filled with gorgeous flowers and lots of personal touches. The chairs were dressed with white covers and light silver organza sashes.

Sarah was happy to give us free reign for the centrepieces so it was fabulous to have all the bridesmaids over for coffee and to look over the mock ups before the big day. We designed all the centrepieces to have a collection of beautiful mercury glass items around a mirror plate. We added little birdcages, lace covered jars, vintage cut glass cake stands and antique books draped in pearls.

We used as many tea lights as possible (without causing fire hazard!) and we heard it looked even more incredible when the lights went down. The beautiful vintage theme was echoed in the flowers. We arranged big beautiful roses in lace covered jars and single stems in vintage bud vases and mercury glass which matched the glamorous theme perfectly.

We created a special display for the top table including a stunning bunting backdrop by Emma Bunting. Emma created bespoke bunting now named “Sarah” and is available to hire in soft grey and pink to match the colours of the day.

We set up vintage suitcases that had belonged to Sarah’s grandfather for guests to place wedding cards and well wishes and a special table full of photographs of loved ones to make sure everyone was part of their day.
