A Winter Xmas Wedding - Lauren & Ross

1 comment

It was a long time in the planning but it finally arrived!  The wedding of our good friends, Lauren & Ross, finally arrived on the 8th December...

Lauren had been planning the wedding for sometime and went into every little detail with some amazing DIY touches.

They married at the Square Tower in Old Portsmouth.  Built in 1494 during the reign of Henry VII, the Square Tower had a varied history, it was designed as part of the fortifications to protect the rapidly expanding Naval Port.

The tower was also used as the home of the Governor of Portsmouth, a semaphore signalling tower, a provisions store for the Royal Navy and as a gunpowder store.  Now used in all it's glory as a popular wedding venue on the south coast.

Proud dad, Paul, about to walk Lauren down the aisle...

Lovingly saying their wedding vows...


After the ceremony, guests were then invited to have mulled wine, mince pies and some yummy chocolate cake lollipops

It was then off to the Solent Hotel in Fareham where guests were greeted with Pimms and the most fabulous Xmas dinner. 

 The happy couple.....

The evening reception then kicked off with a wintery chocolate fountain followed by hog roast and all washed down with the sounds of "Red Jackson"  rhythm & blues band.

A fantastic day... a real Xmas wonderland feel which flowed very well.  Some great DIY touches which I've never seen before topped off with some festive food that tasted divine.

Lauren looked gorgeous in her dress and really was the picture perfect bride.  Congrats to you both oxox

  1. Thanks for this blog Clayton, so glad you came and witnessed all the hardwork pay off. Yes it was a long time in the making, especially all the DIY touches which Lauren invented,some from the chocolate fountains we'd previously worked at. Anyway this kind of planning and organisation runs in the family,at time it felt like organising a summer ball. Anyway it all paid off in the end and im glad you was there to witness Lauren and Ross's winter wonderland wedding, along with your fantastic chocolate fountain, cheers mate
