Kate and Richard ~ Dinner Party in the Forest

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

On Saturday 15th September 2012 Kate Lamont married Richard Turney in an exqusite Edwardian-inspired ‘dinner party in the forest’ themed wedding held in a marquee in a field near Aberporth, West Wales, overlooking the glorious Cardigan Bay.Oh So Perfect were delighted to be involved in the overall set up and on the day coordination of Kate and Richard’s special day…

The bride and her father travelled to the church in Kate’s uncle’s Rolls Royce. After the ceremony, Kate and Richard headed back to the venue in her step-father’s very own vintage Jaguar E-type.

A little spot of rain in the afternoon did nothing to dampen the happy couple’s spirits – it meant the guests could use their personalised wedding umbrellas!

Inside the marquee our couple’s vision of indoors meets outdoors came to life spectacularly! We brought in real trees, oil paintings, cut glass and vintage wine decanters galore to create a feeling of an Edwardian dinner party in the forest…

The favours were little bottles of olive oils produced from the mother of the bride’s home in Italy. The menu consisted entirely of locally sourced Welsh produce, all of which was mapped out inside the menu cards for guests to see.

The tables were named after some of Kate and Richard’s favourite pubs across the UK, all of which held treasured memories for them. 

The cake was decorated with royal icing and hand-made sugarcraft hydrangeas – they look so real!

As day turned to night, the marquee lit up spectacularly, adding more magic to this forest fantasy…

Then, as night fell, guests could indulge in the candle-lit whisky tipi which was stocked full of Penderyn whisky and a warm Welsh welcome… the guests partied ’til dawn!

Even the bride’s favourite teddy bear stayed up all night!
