The way to hearts of team SWD is definitely good food, so our mouths were watering when we saw this delicious wedding at 3 Sisters Bake at Killearn Village Hall. It was important to couple Rachel and Alastair to put food at the heart of their wedding, and the results were, well, pretty tasty!
Read more about the day from the bride’s point of view…
We knew that Three Sisters Bake had a good reputation for their food and liked the outdoor space. We liked that the hall was a blank canvas; it meant we could do what we wanted with it, keeping things quite simple.
Sheena, our wedding coordinator, was very helpful – she had lots of good advice and nothing was too much trouble for her, even when we were making last minute changes. She was at the venue all day the day before setting things up and was there until the very end on our wedding day too.
We had a family-style buffet for the meal. All the food was brought to the table and guests were able to share it out with each other. We chose one starter, two main courses with three side dishes and a cake table for dessert so that our guests had a choice of what to eat. The food was delicious all of the guests mentioned it as a highlight!
We had festoon lights and greypaper lanterns strung across the ceiling and down the aisle. We also asked our florist, Endrick Blooms, to provide some greenery and flowers to complement the candles placed along the floor.
Our ceremony, meal and dancing took place in the main hall, our drinks reception was in the Garden Room under the hall,and in the evening we also had the café space and balcony for guests who wanted a quieter space to chat. The weather was so nice that during the drinks reception most guests were able to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Don’t forget that the most important thing is getting married in the presence of your family and friends. Prioritise what is important to you – for us it was good food, good music and a good photographer. Don’t stress too much! Everyone involved in the day from start to finish was so helpful. Our band, Awry, were great too.
We have been together for a long time, so our day-to-day life has not particularly changed a great deal, but we were very happy to celebrate our relationship with our loved ones and are looking forward to seeing what the future holds.
