Lasting Memories

24 May 2019

Sometimes we get a little sentimental...

As a hands-on and dedicated team, we strive to offer something new and exciting whilst bringing our clients' dreams to life. It's for this reason that we find that each and every event leaves a lasting memory with us. Whether our clients require a complete package from start to finish or a simple and single hire, adding our Perfect Planning touch to anyone's big day always excites us!

Today, we found ourselves looking back at one of our first magical events at Herons Park Venue!

Herons Park Venue was renovated in 2016 by Liam and Hannah King, for their wedding (the first wedding at Herons Park!). Since then, the duo have seen a range of weddings and events take place at their beautiful venue. With only a short drive from us, Herons Park Venue has become one of our favourite local venues for weddings and events. Herons Park Venue offers stunning views, overlooking freshwater lakes and teaming with wildlife as it sits within the Kent countryside.

In 2017 our happy couple, Andy and Lea, approached us with their vision for their big day - bright, bold and beautiful (to match their incredible personalities) but with a relaxed and informal setting. Andy and Lea asked our team to provide start to finish planning, organisation and supplier coordination for their big day, to help create an unforgettable and smooth running event. From finding the right wedding entertainment to transforming the venue, we were proud to handle it all!

Our team offered complete venue decor for the couple - complete with lighting. For the interior, we highlighted their bright and bold vision with colour-coordinated tables that each had a colourful centrepiece placed proudly in the middle, while a range of coloured vases and flowers were placed around the venues as accents adding even more colour! All of this was enhanced with our LED uplighters, adding washes of colour behind each and every table, adding atmosphere and something a little different. A complete sweet table was also set up, allowing their guests to help themselves and offering a unique kid-in-a-sweetshop experience.

For the exterior, we lined their venue with festoon lighting and twinkling fairy lights to add some sparkle, adding atmosphere and ambience whilst offering practicality to keep the party going all night long. They also looked great for Andy's surprise fireworks for Lea! With the ceremony happening outside, we provided hay bale toppers and our shepherds crooks to help line the outdoor aisle, adding to the relaxed and rustic feel.

Though Lea and Andy wanted something informal and relaxed, Liz was on hand throughout the day to ensure things run smoothly.

Despite it being over two years ago, being involved at so many levels for such an incredible event and getting everything to sync together was great! Our team got to know our lovely couple and still think back to being part of such a fabulous day!
