Wedding Fayre at the gorgeous Woodborough Hall

We had a wonderful day out at Woodborough Hall wedding fayre in April. The weather was sunny and hot and luckily, we were by the open doors in the garden room and could catch a few rays while we were working!
Lots of lovely brides to be, Mum's, bridesmaid and friends tried on our hats... and I took a few snaps to show you... don't they look fab!
The gray suited this lovely lady beautifully.
We were really pleased with our display, which had it's first showing at Woodborough Hall. The hat stands are large candle sticks!
I painted the mirror this week with crackle paint... and it has a lovely aged, vintage feel.
White embroidered monogram on white cotton napkins looks so vintage! Many thanks to Cakes Etcetera for the display cupcakes :)
The view from our little corner of the garden room....
Woodborough Hall is close to my heart, as I got married there in 2008.... the weather was gorgeous that day to!
