Whitehall Hotel Wedding, Darwen

Black and Red themed wedding at the Whitehall Hotel

Paul and Julia run Darwen Deli and we had a feeling that their wedding would feature some amazing cakes.  But we didn’t think we’d be drooling whilst taking photos!  We stood there patiently as they set up the cake table eyeing up every single cake that was put out.  Even blogging this wedding has made us hungry!  (And luckily, we were given a stash of cakes as we left in the evening. We love our job!!)

The wedding took place at the Whitehall Hotel in Darwen. Paul and Julia went for a gorgeous black and red theme. The wedding favours were jars of cake mix so people could bake their own.  The groom’s cake was an Iron Man cake which actually lit up!

Converse Allstars featured very heavily too.  And this wedding has the best cake cutting photo ever in our opinion.  Also, check out the ‘dance floor rules’, what a fantastic idea. We think every wedding should have these.  Oh, and to break tradition and make this wedding even more individual, Paul chose to have a ‘Best Woman’ who gave a very funny speech.

    Una Doyle - Lovely photos and wow, yes I’m drooling too! (Though I’d have had to brought my own gluten & sugar free cakes along…)

    It’s really great when people mix it up and make the wedding/event their own so that they and their guests can really relax and have a fab time.ReplyCancel
