All things bright and beautiful as The Arches is transformed into an industrial garden paradise for the wedding of Estee and Josh.
On Saturday the 28th of July, our favourite industrial wedding venue was breathtakingly transformed into a chic, urban glasshouse with a distinctively botanical feel.
The large glass windows were expertly styled with lush displays of flora and fauna. Vibrant green pot plants and pops of zesty oranges and pinks added to the tropical feel whilst an abundance of ferns and foliage added softness to the botanical garden vibe.
This relaxed and tranquil sanctuary was the perfect location for Estee and Josh to celebrate their wedding day with family and friends and what a fabulously relaxed and happy time was had by all!
The 2pm ceremony was very much a family affair, a joyous occasion full of song, dance and praise with Estee and Josh's family and friends taking a lead role in the proceedings. A live band, made up of friends of the bride and groom provided wonderful music throughout the hour-long ceremony and Estee's bridesmaid's beautiful singing voice had guests dancing and singing in the aisles, as they embraced the joyful atmosphere.
The stormy weather on the day didn't dampen spirits and several rainstorms and deluges only added to the magical atmosphere. As thunder rumbled in the distance, there was a pause for reflection before more happiness and rejoicing, as Mr and Mrs Mellor danced down the aisle whilst family and friends clapped and cheered.
So much singing and dancing was clearly very thirsty work and as the cloud bursts continued after the ceremony, guests sipped on Pimms cocktails and relaxed and chatted in the beautiful garden like surroundings.
Bride Estee looked stunningly beautiful in her dress, a champagne bodice overlaid with an intricate floral themed lace design, accessorized perfectly with a pretty art deco style bridal halo. Her effortlessly romantic bridesmaids were dressed in flowing Grecian style gowns and floral bouquets and halos were kept pure and neutral. An image that wouldn't have looked out of place in a glossy bridal magazine. Just beautiful!
Our fantastic in-house caterers 'Eat Me-Drink Me' provided a wonderful wedding breakfast, the 'Middle Eastern' sharing platters seemed to prove very popular as guests chatted, socialised and enjoyed delicious Moroccan spiced hummus, sun blushed tomatoes, baba ghanoush and flat breads followed by a main course of delicious thyme roasted chicken and baked chocolate brownie for desert. What a feast!
The love and friendship between Estee, Josh and their families and friends was plain to see. A perfectly relaxed day bursting with so much joy, peace and happiness.
