Sara & Angelo Christophides' Glamorous Wedding Day at The Great Hall at Mains

This was always going to be a super glamorous affair, Sara is completely stunning and has great taste.


Her dream wedding was filled with all the magic of a 1940's Hollywood musical; Diamonds & pearls, candelit romance, mellow music, crystal candelabras and floral arrangements dripping in Orchids and Roses.


Jason & I had started the day with some of our events team; Rachel, Lottie & Malcolm at The Great Hall at Mains, setting the scene with some fabulous designs, then we headed back to St Annes to catch up with Sara and her Bridesmaids to deliver the wedding bouquets and do the all important FD bouquet holding rehearsal.


Sara was thrilled with her wedding bouquet, which is always a big relief to me, even though we always make trial bouquets I am really aware that the bouquets have to meet expectations every time and hopefully exceed a few too!

Sara really wanted Orchids and to be honest July isn't the best time of the year for them, however our suppliers Metz (Hans is just brilliant we love him!) really came up trumps with them and they looked magnificent in this cascade wedding bouquet.

The Bridesmaids bouquets were a very slinky and simple design of Orchids and Roses
Then we headed back up the motorway to the glorious The Great Hall at Mains to do all the finishing touches...

Lottie was lighting the candles on the candelabras whilst Chriss (The phenominal Manager of The Great Hall at Mains) was giving everything her final check over

Gemma (TGHM) lighting Tea lights around the gorgeous cake provided by Yummy Scrummy Cakes and the marvelous Calvin Henry was warming up and checking the sound.

We'd used Huge Vases to frame the ceremony area, these were filled with some gigantic foliages and the most luscious English Delphiniums and Hydrangeas.

The Chairs were dressed with posies of Patience Roses, Sweet Peas and Fantasia Anthueriums

The Registrars tables were dripping with Orchids and David Austin Roses

The black carpet was lined with Candelabras dressed with Astilbe, Stocks, Hydrangeas, Roses, Peonies and Dahlias

The aisle itself was lined with Hurricane lamps and fresh fragrant Rose petals
The Great Hall at Mains team had set out the chairs in rows of four to allow for a much wider aisle which provided plenty of room for Sara's magnificent gown and the lanterns that lined the walk way.
The guests started to arrive and we were in full re-tying ties mode and pinning on boutonnieres, Roman here looks like an angel, he was so good whilst I did his tie.

During the pre-wedding drinks reception the ceremony space is screened off and all the guests have an opportunity to meet one another.

We'd dressed the bar with a vase of fresh Delphiniums, Hydrangeas, Roses and Peonies, all of the indoor bar tables were sprinkled with Rose Petals and illuminated with tea lights in frosted votives.

The Groom's Mum's handbag was decorated with some tiny Phalaenopsis Orchids, Rolled Metalina Rose Petals, Alchemila Mollis and variegated foliagesThe Grooms Boutonniere of Phalaenopsis Orchid and a sprig of fresh Olive to mark his Greek heritage
