I had a fabulous time last weekend helping my Best Friend Sarah celebrate her Daughters Wedding. On the Friday I attended the Venue; The Ashdown Park Hotel in Wych Cross, East Sussex. We had a room packed full of gorgeous summer flowers to create the large pedestal flower arrangements and also the table decorations. Sarah's Brother worked on the large arrangements whilst Sarah and I produced the table ones, it was such great fun to do and the smell of the flowers in the room was amazing. Above I am working on one of the table decs.
On the Saturday I met with my parents at the venue for lunch and also to hand over my lovely boys to their care for the afternoon/evening so hubby and I could enjoy a child free few hours and stay at the hotel after the wedding.
The Hotel and it's Grounds are stunning and the boys loved exploring when we first arrived, it was a very hot day so we took a stroll down to the large lake for some photo opportunities.
As we walked back towards the Hotel we were able to look at the Summer house and seating area where the Bride was to marry later that day, it looked so pretty with all the white parasols over each chair to help provide the guests with some respite from the warm weather.
Below is the Bridal Party making their way towards the Summer House and their awaiting guests, just around the corner of the trees to their left.
We had a scrumptious lunch on the patio area of the Hotel, mouth watering prawn sandwiches, and pimms and of course lemonade and cola for the boys!

Here is one of the table decorations I helped to create for the Wedding Breakfast. This was held in the converted Church on the grounds, so the room had stunning stained glass windows all around it and at the main end of the room where the dance floor would be later in the evening.
Below are the happy couple; The beautiful Bride, Handsome Groom and to the left of the Bride her lovely Sister...
And below, here I am with my lovely Best Friend Sarah (Mother of the Bride) and our other wonderful friend Noels. Happy Times!
