The bridesmaid dresses are modern but pretty.  The youngest bridesmaid/flower girl wears both a dress with a lovely lilac bodice and soft lace overlay and wired netted skirt and ‘fleur’ which has beautiful diamante detail on the tulle skirts, adorned with a beautiful dark purple sash to complement all the adorable purple flowers.  Our younger bridesmaid wears a full lace overlay dress and satin pleated sash in a gorgeous grape colour that looked stunning in the woods.  Whilst the older bridesmaid wore a dress, shorter in length with matching coloured lace overlay showing that mixed aged girls can look co-ordinated and individual at the same time.

Outside a fabric and ribbon backdrop attractively blowing in the breeze within the trees, signs, decorated seated areas created different areas for your guests without the venue having rooms.  Bird cages, strung up jam jar lights and pom poms all created interesting nooks of detail bringing the outside and inside of the venue together, keeping your theme running throughout this unique venue.
