Just like we already told you all, the wedding was at The Pond Micklefield Hall, Sarrat Road, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. The reception/after party was at the same place in a much bigger canopy just about 50 meters away from where the exchange of vows had taken place.
So after the very in love couple had officially become man and wife and the formalities of photographs with the family members, friends, guests etc had been done with, it was time for the reception and merriment.
Just like we had said in the earlier report, the choice of venue can only be described as stunning. Well tended grass land extended for many acres on all sides. Canopy itself was snow white, the inside was gorgeously arranged by the planner with flowers here and there. She should be given 5-stars mark for a good job well done. It was fairy-tale like looking, 30 tables in all, each table to accommodate about 8 people each. Each table was very well decorated giving a very beautiful view with a box of sweet on each plate.
Center of attraction was where the couple were to sit, it was like Prince Charming & his wife sitting and hosting their subjects to a befitting feast and the tall simple and beautiful cake was standing to the left of the couple. A mini cocktail bar was to the right as soon as you enter from the back entrance and a more relaxed sitting quadrangle next to it. It was like a sitting area for drinks.
All the very best of honeymoon spots were very well represented at the venue, love pervaded the whole atmosphere. Each table represented a honeymoon spot from all parts of the world, places like Miami, Mykonos, Rio De Janeiro, Barbados, St. Thomas Island, Maldives, Paris, Tuscany, Cancun, Florence, Venice, Nice, Montego Bay, St. Lucia, Seychelles etc denoted each table of 8.
To the far left of the hall was a dedicated space, which was like a quarter of the canopy space set out as the dance floor (a disco floor a la the disco era of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever) complete with the disco light above and that was where the deejay was located commanding stuffs, all through the event he was churning out one classic love tune after another and changed the mood of the jams as the occasion demanded.
There was a table at the entrance which was like a bird cage and had on it, all the honeymoon spots that represents all the tables on it. Each spots had the names of all the guests and the seating arrangement, so come in, check for you names and straight to your tables. Immediately as you sit, you are being served the starters and offered wines or juices as you want it.
The incomparable master of ceremony, was the incredulously good Bright Okpocha aka Basketmouth, who was in his glorious element all through, running things in a smooth way, churning out jokes after jokes, everyone was very relaxed in lovely atmosphere chatting, munching, drinking and generally having a great time.
It was generally a great reception, with over abundance of whatever the guests needed either it was food, drinks, merriment. Kudos to the couple and their event planner who really did a marvelous job.
As usual one of the surprise element of the day, was when Africa's numero uno vocalist/musician Tuface Idibia aka 2 Baba popped out from backstage to serenade the couple to the delight of all the guests in attendance.
All in all, it was a great party and we all had mad fun!!! There after, the couple opened the floor, everyone was invited to groove the evening away. We captured the event for your viewing pleasure.
