Little Bidlake Farm – a lovely wedding venue
It’s been busy lately and my blog postings have taken a nose-dive, so, before the Christmas party season (waaay hay!) gets going, to make up for lost time on the blog I’m taking several trips down memory lane. Tonight’s meanderings are for the lavish Knight wedding which took place on the 13th September at Little Bidlake Farm, Bridstowe in Devon.
Oh we do love Little Bidlake Farm!
It’s only down the road from our cottage in Devon and the owners Jo & Phil Down are lovely – so we were really chuffed when Nikki Knight called to book us for her wedding that was due to take place there. A couple of days before, a couple called to cancel their booking (the couple in question were postponing their wedding till next year) so we were free to return to Little Bidlake for a gorgeous marquee wedding. 🙂
Introducing the bride & groom, Mr & Mrs Knight!
The memory of this early sunny September night will stay with me always mainly because I had a charming little helper all evening, the bride Nikki’s niece, Ascara. My usual partner in crime, Laurence, was over at St Mellion Golf Club with the other booth at the wedding reception of Mr & Mrs Park so it was really great to have some company for the night.
I had to laugh at the end of the night when out of the blue, Scala stomped off to the stage and shouted into the microphone “More people, we need more people in the booth!!!” She was worried we’d not fill out the guest book with photo booth picture strips. That’s the way to do it! Next time I’ll try that!
My fab little apprentice (and me)
What a lovely marquee wedding it was. I saw it the night before – everything in its place, it was stunning. A black carpet throughout punctuated nicely the black and white theme. There was a table plan sign written by hand on a vast free standing mirror – oh it was all really really nice! Everyone was really nice too – everyone had a great time!
All the pictures taken on the night can be found here so you can revisit those happy memories too! 🙂
