Happy Magic Mirror selfies & memories at the Hotel Endsleigh

The last time we were booked to deliver a Magic Mirror to the Hotel Endsleigh – we fell in love! With the Hotel Endsleigh.

To set the scene…

It was a dark night in early November and it was raining pretty heavily.

The local roads between Okehampton where we are based and the Hotel Endsleigh near Tavistock were full of water.

It was a SPLASH FEST driving over to Mr& Mrs B’s wedding reception. But on you drive until you get there and start making the magic happen! ๐Ÿ™‚

Upon arriving at the venue, we parked up and ran for cover to avoid getting completely soaked.

The moment we opened the front door to the house, a great big welcoming glow greeted us.

At every turn there were beautifully dressed ladies holding beautifully dressed babies and toddlers.

Everyone smiled at us and we felt like we were at home.

The people who work at the Hotel Endsleigh were, as we have always found them, so welcoming and helpful!

There was a small room called “The Quiet Room” which was to be our destination for the evening and became anything but!!

It was packed with furniture and art books – all heavy – which would be moved when the busy staff had finished

delivering long stacks of chairs out of one room and into another. So helpful.

We started thinking about how the Mirror would look best in the room and helped to move some furniture items and covered others with white tablecloths and fancy dress props.

The effect was smart and welcoming when everything was in its place.

After the speeches, wedding guests appeared and disappeared with their selfies in their hands and one in the guest book along with fun messages.

Pic/ The highlight of the night for us was when Emma the bride popped the big elephant head on for a photo with her handsome groom in his Elvis rubber head!

We could hear the band playing at the other end of the house. Their music was unbelievable and we enjoyed hearing them in the background. Live music is definitely a perk of the job!

Loads of guests of all ages congregated for large group photos with the Magic Mirror –

and they all took a copy of the photo home with them!

What a fun memento of the wedding day!

Some guests had a fistful of photos as they returned for photos with their nearest and dearest.

At the end of the night, as the guests had sipped by now a few glasses of bubbles,

our Magic Mirror pack away was simple as can be!

What with the band being so good, flying through their end of session rock numbers –

everyone was busy dancing the night away and continuing to enjoy the amazing night

and didn’t even notice our disappearance!

(And the rain held off nicely for a bit of sparkler fun!)

What a great night!

A week and a bit later, we were so chuffed when these kind words arrived in a lovely email from our bride and groom, Mr & Mrs B!

“Just wanted to write to say the most enormous thank you

for all the hard work you did for us on our wedding day.

You both worked incredibly hard and everyone loved the magic mirror.

We have absolutely loved and laughed our heads off looking through the photos.

The props were amazing, the photos incredible and we loved that everyone got to

keep a memory of the day and we did too in our fabulous guest book.

It was such a fantastic way of getting people to send us a message with a little reminder of them.

It was so well put together.

We donโ€™t know what to say, you were both absolutely amazing!

Thankyou for everything. ๐Ÿ˜Š. With our thanks and very best wishes,

Mr and Mrs B. Xx”

To sum up, the Hotel Endsleigh is a magnificent Devon country house that is famous for it’s gardens

is an amazing wedding venue packed with atmosphere,

accommodation

and

delicious plates of food!

I think it is a contender with the others to rival Downton Abbey for stunning location to get married in!

Spacious and spectacular – getting married in style at St Audries Park

Downton Abbey watch out! We have another incredible wedding venue to match it on style, atmosphere and sheer omnipotence!

If St Audries Park is not on your radar just yet, we promise it soon will be!! It is a SPECTACULAR wedding venue in Somerset and is a special place with what we all in the wedding industry like to call loads of WOW factor!

pic/ St Audries Park win the Best Coastal Wedding Venue category award 2019!

Great news! Our CONGRATULATIONS to the venue on winning the Coastal Wedding Venue category this year!

And more news that we’re excited about is that we, Yellowbooth , are based in the south west and are suppliers of photo booths and Magic Mirrors to St Audries Park!

We have had our photo booths booked on a number of occasions over at St Audries Park and we absolutely love the aged atmosphere and classiness of the venue.

At every event here we have been thrilled by the weddings we’ve been a part of. We’ve played a part in the most exciting of evening receptions/parties – with each individual night completely unique to all others.

pic/ The Main Hall – a relaxing spot during the day and the life and soul of the house at night!

Come the evening, the dancing happens in the vast Main Hall – I believe the DJ is the venue’s resident DJ or son who are very nice – the sound acoustics are fantastic – we’ve also been booked a couple of times when there’s been a dance band on.

With or without a band – you’ll have a great night I can promise that!! ๐Ÿ™‚

The DJ and band set up to the left of the Hall beneath the Minstrels gallery.

There’s plenty of space to work out your preferences without running into problems of people getting cramped up which can sometimes happen at the smaller wedding venues. But not here at St Audries Park! Space galore for all your personal touches like your gift table, candy cart, LOVE letters or your memories boards.

pic/ Exciting night time activities at St Audries Park!

This beautiful big Mansion has the feel and atmosphere of a castle when it’s dark outside and is a wondrous place to be! More often than not we’ve all been summoned into the gardens to enjoy the fireworks display as the midnight hour beckons.

pic/ our Midnight black photo booth is always the most popular choice for weddings at St Audries Park.

Our photo booths are very versatile and can go anywhere they are welcome.

We’ve been in the piano lounge – the first room on the left as you go into the main hall through the main entrance way or there has been enough space to get a photo booth frenzy going beneath the stair case.

Our one and only New years Eve party was here at St Audries Park and it was amazing! What a spectacular place to be to see in the New Year!

pic/ Fun in the booth guaranteed! As well as outside of it!

A classy wedding venue with a sea view ticks many a box especially as St Audries Park WON the 2019 British Weddings Awards for ‘best coastal wedding venue’.

In a nutshell, this is a venue ideal for wedding parties out of the Bristol and Somerset regions. So far our brides and grooms have all been local from as far north as Burnham on Sea but the West Quantoxhead location is a popular seaside area with Minehead and Dunster not too far a journey away.

Looking for a special location for your wedding ceremony?ย What more of a gorgeous location could there be than The Orangery for a wedding civil ceremony.

Ideally, if you have a large wedding party, there is plenty of space to put them up for the night!

Luxury accommodation in house is for around 100 lucky guests staying for between one two two nights stay on the estate.

A great choice of venue for the bigger wedding, there is a banqueting hall that can seat up to 130 guests. You can even take your wedding to another level by hiring the whole house for up to 250 guests.

If we are comparing St Audries Park to Downton Abbey – I would have to say – the Somerset wedding venue looks particularly respectable! It’s a fantastic place!

We have a wedding award of our own to bring to the party in the wedding entertainment category – as voted by our brides and grooms.

If you are planning on getting married at St Audries, please can we come too? It would be amazing to come back!
