A pretty summer wedding at Formby Hall
Mandy and Dave; Their Story.
Planning your wedding is no easy task. From choosing your venue, your dress, the suits, who will be bridesmaids, best man, the cake, will it be chicken or beef, all way right down to the little details of which font will go onto the place cards for the table plan!
I like to send out a few questions to my brides and grooms about a month before the big day to get to know them a little and to find out which lovely suppliers they’ve asked to help make their day so special.
Mandy and Dave tied the knot at the picturesque Formby Hall Golf Club. A regular venue for me that I am always pleased to go back to and Mandy and Dave’s wedding was no different. The staff are so welcoming and friendly – along with the many ducks that live in and around all the ponds on the golf course.
A truly fabulous day, filled with so many happy moments, fun with lots and lots of laughter.
Here are the details of planning and suppliers that made their day so special.
Where and when did you get engaged?
Under the Christmas tree December 2017 – a complete surprise ! I usually get a spa voucher for Xmas but there was no card in my present bundle. Dave was acting abit strange and then he got up off the floor and then all of a sudden he gave me this envelope
Why did you choose your wedding date?
No significance – We wanted a date where we knew people wouldn’t be on their school holidays and it would not be too hot for our honeymoon

It is a glamorous setting.

No theme. I just want it to look feminine & pretty.
