The Ceremony was held at Cartmel Priory Church at 2.00pm. The bride arrived and looked sensational!

Spinach & Feta Filo Parcels

King Prawns in Filo Pastry with Chilli Dipping Sauce

Caramelised Onion Tarte Tatin

Arancini with a Sun Blush Tomato Dip

Mini Yorkshire Puddings with Pink Roast Beef

Whilst everyone was enjoying the drink, canapés and the sun, there was time to get some photos inside the marquee! The flowers from Brackens of Bowness were incredible and made the marquee very memorable and eye catching!

One detail of this wedding which was very personal and such a lovely touch was the name cards! Rather than traditional name cards they put a funny photo of each guest! (Sorry John!)

Once everyone found there seats we began the meal!

A lovely Lake District inspired menu:

Twice Baked Cheese Soufflé, Served with a Champagne Cream Sauce & Mixed Leaves

Baskets of Home-mad Breads

Lakeland Fell Bred Fillet of Beef with a Madeira Jus

Gratin Dauphinois

Grilled Asparagus & Glazed Carrots

Sticky Toffee Pudding with Toffee Sauce & English Lakes Ice Cream

Tea, Coffee and Chocolate Fudge


Later in the evening the lighting provided my Millennium Marquees was spectacular! It created a very different look between day and night creating a party atmosphere as guests partied until the early hours!
