Traditionally styled summer wedding in Wales
Wayne & Emma
2020 February 22
On the hills above Hay-on-Wye lay the perfect setting for this traditional wedding marquee reception. Situated on the families’ land, the views stretched as far as the golden valley, black mountains and all the way down to Pen y Fan. The beautiful blue sky on one of the hottest days of the year, provided unspoilt views across the valley and beyond.
The marquee had a traditional theme and was dressed elegantly, with pleated ivory linings and champagne coloured carpet to match. The lime-washed chivari chairs and white linen tablecloths added to the neutral theme.
To cater for 160 seated guests, the tables were arranged with 10 guests seated per round table with a traditional long style top table for the Bride, Groom and immediate family. The panoramic window walls allowed for the natural view of the landscape to be taken in, whilst guests were sat comfortably, enjoying the day unfold.
The lighting consisted of stylish chandeliers suspended from the marquee, and a fairy light canopy intricately woven throughout the roof space of the linings. This gave a warming glow to the roof as the sun began to set.
