Get inspired by these real Orange tree weddings

Kathleen & Callum - Grange Hall

Kathleen and Callum were married in Grange Hall, situated in the Nottinghamshire village of Radcliffe on Trent. This was a new venue for Orange Tree Weddings, and a pretty perfect venue it was!

The guests arrived to an entrance way which we had spectacularly decorated with a canopy of bright & bold paper decorations and drapes. This couple were definitely not colour shy!

While everyone grabbed a drink from the bar, and eagerly awaited Kathleen and Callum’s arrival, a table of sweet treats kept the guests from getting hungry pre-ceremony!

The separate bar room had been decorated in true Orange Tree Weddings style with plenty of colourful drapes and German beer benches.

The bridesmaids got straight on the cocktails! The jungle themed board by our talented sign writer Lesser Than Three matched their dresses perfectly, so it’d have been rude not to!!

As the couple arrived together to hit the aisle, (we love an unconventional wedding schedule!!) the staff ushered the guests into a beautifully dressed main hall. The ceiling was swathed in bright fabric sails, and a macrame backdrop by clove & Hitch was suspended from the ceiling between two hanging floral arrangements.

Led by the most adorable little security guard / flower girl, Kathleen and Callum walked down the aisle together to be married in-front of their nearest and dearest. Grange hall is a fully licensed venue and a beautiful legal ceremony was performed.

Post ceremony the guests piled out into the grounds for confetti shots and group photos by the talented Martin Makowski Photography.

The team then got to work on transforming the hall into a space fit for a banquet! Rows of trestles were laid out in long sociable rows and decorated with bright jars of flowers. Cool bevelled table number boards were added by Lesser Than Three.

Outside in the garden, RoRo from Project Hoop entertained the kids (and a few adults) with some Hula Hooping lessons!

And the glorious sunshine meant that our festival set up outside could be enjoyed!

At the end of their delicious meal of antipasti followed by chicken skewers, flat breads and fresh salad, a moving speech from the newly weds was given in front of the stage. The huge dramatic curtains gave the appearance of the happy couple collecting an Oscar! What a pair of celebs!

You can never have enough cake on your wedding day….so this dreamy cake table was set with delicious homemade cakes whilst our chefs also prepared chocolate brownie in the kitchen!

After all that sugar it was time to follow the signs to the disco!

The large stage at Grange Hall was certainly made the most of, and was set up as a mini club for the guests to grab a glow stick and bust some moves!

What a way to end an epic day! Congratulations Kathleen and Callum. Thanks so much to Martin Makowski for the use of his stunning images!

Kat & John - Loughborough Endowed School - April 2018

Kat and John were this year’s first to have an Orange Tree Wedding. They chose one of the grand and beautiful listed buildings at Loughborough Endowed School in which to hold their gorgeous wedding reception.

The celebrations started over in the historic tower building, where the guests arrived from the ceremony to a mouth watering selection of welcome cocktails, and more canapes than you can shake a cocktail stick at!

They then spilled out onto the magnificent quad gardens in front of the building.

A little down pour didn’t stop the smiles or frolics from this crowd!

Happily full-up on tasty welcome treats, the guests followed our friendly team of staff through the grounds, to the main high school hall. Yet another of Loughborough Endowed Schools beautiful builldings

Here it was time for Christine McNally to capture the ever important confetti shots!

and naturally some cheeky smooches too…….

Everyone made their way inside to take a seat for the wedding breakfast.

Their bespoke table plan, cocktail board and table names by our favourite sign writer, Lesser than Three, fit with the colour scheme perfectly.

Inside, the hall was decorated in the prettiest spring colour palette and twinkling lights. The stage was draped in fabrics to set the perfect backdrop for their party. It’s always a fun job for our Orange Tree Weddings stylist to make this hall look beautiful. The wooden beams and big old windows make a perfect canvas for the most dreamy of weddings!

Our vintage lounge set up worked wonderfully in a cosy corner of the hall. Complete with a retro style macrame plant hanger from Clove & Hitch to add some greenery!

It’s all about the attention to detail which make an orange tree wedding styling so special……

The newly weds were announced in to a hall of smiling faces and applause.

They took their seats for a wedding breakfast of pie and mash, and finished off with some moving speeches.

The guests stretched their legs with ice cream from Living the Cream out on the lawns, and took a little break whilst our team got the room ready for party time!

Jazz and blues from Anna Sinfield and her band, really made the evening swing!

We loved being part of Kat and John’s special day. We really hope they had the BEST DAY EVER!

Thanks so Much to Christine McNally for use of her stunning snaps!
