Sophie and Tony

Oh Dear!…It’s been such a busy summer, I have neglected to let you all know what has been happening here at Akito.
I’ve had some really gorgeous weddings, lovely couples and fabulous venues.
Each one so unique and different.
I’ll begin with this one from back in May, gorgeous colours that reminded me of blackcurrant and raspberry sorbet!!!
The wedding of Sophie and Tony was on a glorious late spring afternoon, (it really was a hot and sunny day).
The ceremony took place inside the little church, in the picturesque village of Epperstone. After the marriage ceremony, Sophie and Tony celebrated with family and freinds at The Goosedale Banqueting and Conference Centre, in the lovely ‘Garden rooms’ a stunning venue with amazing views over the surrounding valley and Newstead Abbey grounds.

Sophie’s bouquet, was a gorgeous mix of roses, veronica, stocks and aquilegia.

The statuesque candelabras looked amazing dressed with flowers in the same sorbet tones as the bridal  flowers, with trails of ivy and coral fern.

The tables were named with countries where Sophie and Tony had spent many happy holidays and shared lots of great memories together.
Sophie had some fabulous ‘props’ scattered around the room, here is one of them, next to the cake top.(waiting for the cake to arrive!!)
