The Garden Wedding of       Alyx and Jonny Part 2

The Garden Reception:
Alyx and Jonny said “It was really important to us to have a relaxed, informal atmosphere for our guests once they reached the reception, and the d├ęcor played a huge role in achieving that. Our blue and white theme was present (especially in the dinner tent), but we also wanted to add in some other colours to make the garden as summery and colourful as possible. Using ethically sourced materials was also important to us, but that of course adds an extra dimension to the search. Hansley Beard was fantastic at finding all sorts of options for us to choose from, and excellent at turning our vague ideas into gorgeous reality!”

Here’s what Hansley Beard did to achieve this look:

We decorated the garden trees with white and coloured paper Chinese lanterns

Using shepherd hooks and wooden and metal lanterns from Hansley Beard’s Hire collection, we created decorative walkways, walls and flowerbeds



Guests arrived for the drinks reception and an ice cream from Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream whilst being entertained by a Jazz Quartet



Time for cutting the wonderful hedgehog themed cake, made by one of Alyx and Jonny’s talented guests


Time for the Wedding Breakfast. Table Plan designed by Jessica Harvey at JK Harvey Design., on one of our easels

Working with Sesame Catering from Sheffield, we decorated the reception tables with colbalt blue wine glasses, tealight holders and ribbon around the napkins. For the favours Alyx had been busy shopping in Singapore and brought back colourful fans for the ladies whilst the gentleman each received a lottery ticket in a Chinese envelope

Flowers were by Celia from Flowers by Design in Easingwold. The marquee was decorated with blue and white bunting and the tables were named after key places in Alyx and Jonny’s life

After dinner, the bridal party went for a stroll down the garden

Alongside the second marquee, which was allocated for the later dancing and entertainment, we set up a chill area with deck chairs and bunting, for guests to relax on the riverbank

Alyx and Jonny go down to the riverside to catch the evening light…


We’ll bring you more of the evening photos tomorrow….

This Idea is really great.

All people deserve wealthy life time and mortgage loans or just secured loan will make it better. Because freedom depends on money.
