Summer marquee wedding in the Brecon Beacons National Park

Louisa and Adam got married on a beautiful July day in the stunning backdrop of the Glanusk Estate in the Welsh countryside. The couple arrived at the reception in style in a classic car to the sounds of a Welsh brass band and guests enjoyed champagne, peach bellinis and canapés with the view of the Black Mountains.

Louisa and Adam wanted a fine dining feel to their meal and chose a really classically British menu. They wanted to show all of their guests who had travelled to the wedding just what fabulous produce we have available to us in this part of the country and reflect their Welsh surroundings in their menu choice. With the groom being vegan we wanted to provide an equally delicious plant-based option. 

The marquee was provided by Good Intents and the long banqueting tables adorned with flowers by Love Lily and the gold cutlery and charger plates that the couple chose looked spectacular on the day as these photos show.

We were thrilled to receive the following feedback from the bride.

"We had the best day ever and you and your team were absolutely brilliant. The food was amazing and I have received so many lovely messages complimenting it all, it was a real ‘wow factor’! We were just so blown away by how organised and delicious everything was and how stunning the tables looked. We feel so lucky to have had our dream wedding and can’t thank you and your team enough for all your hard work."
