…and the bride wore her great-grandmother’s wedding veil

…and The Bride Wore Her Great-grandmother’s Wedding Veil

Rosy & Tom’s Nottingham City Wedding

Our bride Rosy was married last Saturday to Tom in the heart of Nottingham. She chose our lovely Eleanor dress from the French Collection, a dreamy lace and silk tulle gown with no ‘bling’ in champagne and ivory. It was the perfect match to her veil, which was the starting point for her dress choosing last year.

Her veil was very special. Made from Nottingham lace, her great grandmother had first worn it in 1935. Rosy’s grandmother then wore it at her wedding, followed by Rosy’s mum and then, finally, Rosy herself! And they were all married at the stunning St Mary’s Church in the Lace Market.

After the ceremony the bride and groom strolled through the city bathed in sunshine to reach the historic Nottingham City council building in Market Square for their reception. They were applauded by passers-by as they went!

‘Provence In The Leicestershire Countryside’ By Julia Dilworth Florals

Lavender, Olive foliage and Rosemary just says ‘Provence’!

Lilacs, purples and ivories were the main theme running through this relaxed wedding marquee set up. Flowers included Lavender, Clematis and Roses with lots of Ruscus foliage garlands running through the spiders web of fairy lights in the marquee ceiling. The bride carried the central purple and lilac posy and the bridesmaids carried the predominantly ivory posies with the flowergirl carrying the basket. The boys wore buttonholes of Rosemary, Lavender and Eryngium Thistles to match.

Rhubarb Gin Wedding Favours for Sarah & Ryan at Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire

Rhubarb Gin Wedding Favours For Sarah & Ryan At Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire

Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin – the perfect Macaron for this summer’s weddings!

Definitely “on point” these are some of the oh-so-pretty wedding favours we made for Sarah & Ryan’s wedding at the fabulous Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire last Saturday. 80 pretty little boxes, tied with silver satin ribbon and ivory labels each offering up a divine scrummy macaron filled with organic rhubarb poached in Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin combined with our Madagascan Vanilla & Double Cream ganache and then topped off with a square of our oh so naughty Rhubarb Gin Jelly – neat rhubarb gin turned into a very adult jelly for that extra special hit!

Sarah & Ryan popped along to see us at Maison Des Macarons a few weeks ago to try a handful of flavours from our extensive list – currently standing at over 30!  It’s always lovely to meet our brides and grooms and get to know a little bit about them and their “journey” to the big day. After tasting their requested flavours, I told them I was currently making some new Rhubarb Gin ones…….ooops!!!  Yes, please – so after trying a couple – decision made!  We also made 10 Madagascan Vanilla ones for the “little ones” so their day was filled with scrumminess too!

We were so pleased to received these lovely messages this morning from the bride and the groom’s mother, the day after the wedding:
“They were beautiful and tasty! Thank you so much!”
“They were absolutely delicious and so beautifully presented! Thank you for doing such a great job”

Now that’s why we love doing what we do here at Maison des Macarons!
