Bunting High and Low

September 7, 2011

You can’t beat a bit of bunting.  Or, in the case of David and Lee’s recent wedding where I was invited to sing, you can’t beat one-hundred-and-eighty metres of it!  The bespoke bunting was created by wedding and event stylist Michele Gledhill who transformed Grange Hall in the Nottinghamshire village of Radcliffe on Trent into a veritable feast of vintage summer fete chic for the happy couple’s drinks reception and afternoon tea.

Each place setting was laid with beautiful vintage crockery courtesy of The Fiona Herbert Catering Company with pots of homemade jam for favours and gorgeous flower arrangements by Michele.

Instead of numbers David and Lee chose vintage railway postcards for each table.

And of course, being a wedding, there was a lot of love around!

Guests were transported from the wedding ceremony at St Giles Church in West Bridgford in a beautiful old single-decker bus.

Michele Gledhill did a tremendous job with the decor and she even found a moment to take a snap of yours truly for her own blog about the wedding.  Thanks to Michele for letting me share the photo with my readers.

I spent a delightful afternoon  serenading the bride and groom and their guests with songs from my repertoire of 1930s and 40s classics as they quaffed Pimms and enjoyed ice cream from a traditional pedal-powered cart.

Congratulations to David and Lee and warmest wishes for a long and happy future together!
