Two 60th birthdays and a wedding anniversary in Weybridge
Once again, we made use of our clients’ home and beautiful garden in St George’s Hill, Weybridge. We set up a marquee with glass walls that would allow the 100+ guests to enjoy the lovely surroundings, and a starcloth ceiling suggested the night sky. The theme was ‘a hint of pearl’, inspired by the traditional symbol for 30 years of marriage. It also tied in nicely with our clients’ love of sailing and gave us plenty of inspiration for decoration and the colour scheme. We went for style and sophistication, with tasteful glints of sparkle and blue-green lighting, both inside and outside the marquee, to create a marine atmosphere.
As they arrived, guests were greeted by an incredible mirror couple, champagne and canapés. A roaming magician provided plenty of sleight of hand and much head scratching throughout the drinks reception and he visited guests at their tables during the two-course dinner. A delicious starter and main was followed by a savoury course of cheese, and guests could also enjoy a great selection of gins, including ‘seaweed gin’ to tie in with the party theme.
Dinner over, guests were in for a treat. We had arranged a ceilidh band to provide the entertainment, which proved a perfect choice. Despite a wide range of ages attending the party, everyone was eager to get involved with the dancing. And a great time was had by all!
