Magic, Music and The Duke Mini Collection!

Thursday 6th April, 2017|Category: News

On Thursday 16th March, we opened our doors for our first ‘Duke Mini Wedding Collection’. This fantastic event aimed to help engaged couples on their journey to finding their dream wedding venue. We dressed the hotel for a wedding, incorporating elements from our various Wedding Packages including our stunning candelabras which took pride of place in the centre of our tables. Roger Miners, our pianist for the evening played as guests arrived, setting the ambience for the evening. Alongside this, we invited a fantastic range of suppliers who we work with on a regular basis to provide accessories including chair sashes, a cake and flowers to really showcase how the space can look once fully dressed.

Mimosa Photography took all of the following photos, documenting the evening and showcasing all of our wonderful suppliers.

Francesca from Flourish provided the LOVE Letter Lights, a favourite amongst many couples to be! Alongside this, Francesca dressed the tables with gold sequin table runners, pale pink and cream flowers and gold charger plates.

We absolutely love the show stopping cakes created by the ladies at Cut me off a Slice. Rachel came along and set up our stunning cake table which featured a three-tier cake, two mini cakes and gorgeous biscuit favours. The ladies also provided sample cupcakes which went down very well with our couples.

Lyndsey and Erica from Anon Design provided our sensational stationery in blush pink and gold writing. They designed stunning place cards, menu’s and table numbers which perfectly co-ordinated with the venue décor and finished off the tables perfectly.

Celebration Balloons and Events is run by the wonderful Dave, who we work with for a large number of our events. Dave dressed the chairs with chair covers and sashes, perfectly co-ordinating with the flowers from Flourish.

Imattination frequently transform our ballroom for weddings and large events. They decorated the ballroom, draping overhead fairy lights which created a truly magical feel. Alongside this they provided pink up lighting around the room and a star cloth behind the top table, which looked spectacular as our guests arrived.

The Carlton Big Band provided the entertainment for the ballroom, performing several sets throughout the evening to entertain our guests. The thirteen-piece band would be the perfect addition to any wedding.

Lewis from LB Magic UK stunned our guests with spectacular illusions during the event. He mingled with couples, performing a variety of tricks spanning everything from fire, cards and coins.

Last but not least, Soundview Media created our stunning Mini Collection film, capturing the event perfectly!

We would like to thank all of the lovely couples and suppliers who came along to our Mini Collection and made it such a successful evening. We look forward to welcoming many of you back in the near future!
