Chinese Extravaganza

Jean & Rupert first approached ternevents around six months prior to their wedding. They had a consultation one snowy lunchtime, on the way to meet their photographer, Nigel Harper.

The couple had a civil ceremony and Chinese tea ceremonies at the gorgeous St Paul’s Walden Bury in Hertfordshire, followed by a reception in the grounds in a large marquee.

Both busy working in London, they wanted help over the last few months to pull everything together.

ternevents worked closely with Countryside Marquees to ensure that everything was set up perfectly, including stringing up knotted fishing line from the roof to ensure the many Chinese lanterns should all be perfectly placed at regular intervals and wouldn’t slip.

Sadly it was a very wet and windy day which meant guests didn’t enjoy the breathtaking grounds as much as the couple had hoped, however Nigel got some great outside shots on the odd occasion it stopped raining and guests stayed warm inside whilst they tucked into a traditional eight course Chinese wedding banquet care of the excellent Leigh House restaurant in Beaconsfield.

A delightful day was had by all, including the Chinese lion dancers, and it culminated in guests nibbling wedding cake whilst watching a splendid firework display across the lake.

‘Thank you so much from me and Rupert for all your sterling work on the wedding – both before, during and after. You were amazing and we will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends. Jean & Rupert’
