COUNTRYSIDE CLASSIC

The JustSeventy team adore planning and designing all weddings since they are such incredibly special occasions, however this three-day extravaganza was a particularly exciting project for all.

From the outset, all wedding guests staying in the local hotels were welcomed with an itinerary, hand-delivered to their bedroom for the weekend’s celebrations which left them instantly at ease in the knowledge that all their transportation and logistics had been taken care of.

Starting on the Friday night for this Cotswolds wedding with a welcome event at a nearby hotel, there was instantly a sense of celebration and a taste of what would follow throughout the weekend. A jazz band, stylish furniture and elegant florals were key elements and set the desired tone.

The wedding day, on the Saturday, took place on the family’s property where the JustSeventy team had arrived weeks earlier to construct a marquee in an area of the gardens. Since the house was situated on the river with stunning surroundings, JustSeventy created the main tent’s structure with full-length windows to make the most of the scenery, even incorporating silver birch trees.

From the moment that guests arrived at the estate, they were taken on a journey. Starting in part of the marquee structure intended for welcome drinks where the champagne flowed and the string quartet played, they were then lead through to the separate dinner space. With food served and the party atmosphere well underway, the occasion was only enhanced by the Ceilidh dancing to embrace the groom’s Celtic roots!

As a complete surprise for the livelier of the guests, a secret nightclub had been built and was ready to draw everybody in to continue the party. With uber-cool décor and captivating table magic, the guests were in for a real treat. One of the best parts of the wedding venue being on the family’s own property meant that there was no strict finish time and the party could continue until the early hours…which of course it did!

Such an exciting wedding weekend would not have been complete without a Sunday Brunch to tie up the weekend’s wedding antics and send the guests on their way. A clear-roofed structure had been constructed in the Courtyard which created the optimum light and bright brunch setting, the perfect farewell to the visiting guests.
