Wedding Wednesday - a sweet introduction to the afterparty

(All posters were designed by my mahoosivly talented husband!)
Seeing as we'd personalised so much of our wedding it was time to let the guests join in too. Instead of a guest book sitting on the side for people to write 'congrats' in as many different ways possible we decided to let our guests scribble all over our cake (with edible ink pens I assure you!) which acted as our guest book.
Our cakes were plain iced with sponge & fruit inside from the one & only M&S (this wasn't just any wedding cake, it was an M&S wedding cake! couldn't resist sorry!) & went down a treat, it was really scrummy.
The posters we'd hung around the rooms were a great way to keep our theme running throughout & linked all the areas together. Can't wait to get a few of them shrunk down a bit so we can frame & hang them around Chez P.
While Adam & I were off playing at the park (see last weeks post HERE) our guests were busy tucking into a well earned cream tea. We hadn't planned on eating any ourselves cos we didn't think we'd have time but thankfully while we were catching a little breather together Jenna managed to grab us a very welcome scone & a cuppa each!
Our reception was held at The Meeting Centre (also knows as The Lakes for weddings) in Hinckley & they couldn't have been more helpful. Every little weird & wonderful idea we had they ran with without question! Also when we booked it gave us free reign of the whole building so that gave us 7, yes 7 rooms to play with & we made the most of all of them! If you or anyone you know of is getting married in the Hinckley region I couldn't recommend these guys enough, Amy & Tom were champs!
