Thank you so much for everything. The rooms were absolutely amazing... exactly what I'd hoped for. I had the best day of my life and everyone was buzzing, even the Malone House staff are still talking about how amazing it all was! So many people came up to us and said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to :) It will be a while before we come down from cloud 9!
What we did
This was a nail-biting set up for us as the marquee was constructed on the very morning of the wedding and it was blowing a stink! While the guys from North Down Marquees erected the marquee we worked in the Harberton Room of Malone House transforming it into an elegant reception area by covering the existing 16ft tall drapes with luscious ivory voiles and bringing in pristine ivory sofas, coffee tables and Poseur tables with crisp ivory cloths all tied in or accented with duck egg blue accessories. The showstopper was a pale blue glass bar which served Jacqueline's guests delicious champagne while we moved in to the now built marquee to add some wow.
In the ceiling, we installed chandeliers and a rotating mirrorball suspended over the white dancefloor, dresssed the walls with warm, white fairylights and draped the marquee entrances with more luscious ivory voile and palest gold leading edges. In spite of the time restraints, the teamwork between ourselves and North Down Marquees was flawless; the finished effect was breathtaking and like elves, we were long gone by the time dinner was announced.
