Bank holiday weekend busy for holidaying and busy for marrying. Spirit Angel et al were delivering at three weddings. We had a stunning outdoor wedding at Ness Gardens on Wirral. The weather was a bit iffy, but when Catherine our bride arrived, she certainly brightened up the day. Catherine knew nothing abut her ring bearer, her mother had booked the surprise. Bestman was a litle nervous groom was so laid back, he was nearly lying down – a good combination to work with!! Angel was spot on and delivered Catherine and Craig’ rings beautifully, to lots of hoos and haars! A ring bearing wedding owl is really something very special to see against such a natural back cloth.
Next was a wedding at the very gracious Arley Hall – beautiful statley home that it is. Stefan the manager extended a very warm welcome and everybody was very helpful particularly when it came to hiding us away from guests. Bride and groom were clearly thrilled with Spirit’s faultless delivery of their rings and she did look quite at home in such a majestic building.
Moorside Grange in Disley was a force to be reckoned with – flying outdoors in a force 9 gale (ok – well not quite, but you see the picture). After the ceremony there was fun outside with Wendy and Phil flying the owl. She did well in such high winds and it was fantastic exercise for her too. The venue again was stunning, particularly outside.
What next, well a busy second weekend coming up with a wedding at Mellington Hall, which has recently been awarded Trip advisor’s ‘ excellent front of house manager’ – Kim from Mellington Hall in Powys. Mellington Hall looks like a wonderful venue and we are very excited to be commissioned for an event there.
Just to add to the stress of our line of work (and believe me it IS stress personified!) we are being filmed for an episode of ‘Four Weddings’. Now neither Angel nor Spirit are strangers to film crews, appearing on three occasions before on screen, but they do tend to want to show off and do ‘something different’ when filming takes place. Let’s see!!
