Wow, what a Garden Party!
It's been ten days since we opened our gates once again for everyone to come along and join in some Elmore fun at our June Fayre Garden Party, and what a day it was. The sun was out, and the carnival atmosphere of the samba band sounds immediately got everyone in the party spirit.
Festival Wedding Fun
Elmore was transformed for the day into a carnival style wedding, complete with gorgeous decor, flowers, styling and fun and games from so many talented suppliers and friends, they did us proud, we couldn't thank them all enough! For those of you who couldn't make it in person, here's some virtual festival wedding inspiration for you from the day...
The Summer Spirit
Jamma de Samba created some serious summer festival vibes with their high energy, carnival style samba sounds.
Fizz on arrival was served by the fabulous Prosecco Love in their vintage van 'Vanessa'
A colourful balloon cascade by Fetti and Bow added to the party feel at the front of the house.
How fab is this vintage bike bar by Locate to Create?... A mobile gin bar of dreams!
Unveiling New Elmore Canapes
The newly renovated Elmore Kitchens served delicious 'Sunday Roast' canapes - they've proven to be so popular we may be adding them to our menus... So if you want them served at your wedding, get in touch.
Roaming music from The Nines and Wandering Minstrels ensured guests were entertained all afternoon as they explored the venue and grounds.
A Touch of The Quintessentially English
The Hall was a hive of activity as guests were wowed by Amber Persia's flowers, it really did feel like an English Garden Party with an explosion of gorgeous locally sourced blooms. Sarah from Cotswold Ceremonies chatted to couples about their ceremony whilst Nero String Quartet enchanted everyone with their classical sounds.
