Real Life Wedding at Aston Hall Hotel
How it all began
2 years ago a lovely lady contacted me to help her with her special wedding day at The Aston Hall Hotel. I’m sure she won’t mind me saying that she was a more mature bride so she had firm views on what her wedding day should be like. Most mature ladies want this day to be even better than the first occasion; as like on my wedding day, it was your Mum who was in control. They made all the decisions and chose what you were having on your wedding day. Not for Jo; she wanted it to be a classy affair with a bit of bling thrown in as which bride doesn’t want a bit of bling on her special day?
We decided on white and silver as this would look fabulous in the marquee at Aston Hall. The chairs were dressed in white chair covers and silver sashes with lots of bling accessories. We designed beautiful bubble balloons filled with silver balloons, tied with a white organza and cascading white led lights. The bride & her best friend had spent several weeks making some special centrepieces for me to sit my balloons in and I think they made a grand job.
A follower of trends my Bride wanted some giant bubblegum balloons at her wedding too, so we dressed silver giant balloons in tulle and lights and stood them either side of the top table. I think they looked quite spectacular.
Being involved from the start of the wedding planning means that I can offer help and advice and one thing that Jo was worried about was making sure that the younger guests had a good time. We decided that a personalized silver heart balloon with the little guest’s name on and a weight which we placed on the tablespace. They went down a storm, little Emerson loved his.
But the piece de resistance was the exploding balloon. This is a giant 3ft balloon was filled with 100 mini balloons and flutter fetti. I fastened it to the ceiling over the dance floor. I made a magic wand so that at any given point the balloon could be burst and all the little balloons and flutter fetti cascading over them. What a picture

I really enjoyed decorating this wedding and I love it when I get super comments from the Bride & Groom after the event.
A Very Happy Couple
What can I say…….. I never knew balloons could look so fantastic until I visited Jacqui. She made our wedding venue look so beautiful . By the time I went back to finalise my requirements I had changed my mind about the colour scheme and the designs etc. Jacqui took it in her stride and helped me create the perfect look. Excellent service. The exploding balloon was great too. I would definitely use this lady again. Thanks very much Jacqui xx
