The marquee was lavishly designed with a summer theme using pinks and fuchsia.
We created two different rooms, first the reception using a double French door entrance into the main area which was lit by pin spots and uplighters for the bar end where we also included poser tables for the guests. At the other end we had the stage for the band and the dance floor which were under a starlight canopy.

The PTA had some great ideas for decoration including the fantastic paper flowers on the entrance and the table displays and also the pink sprayed branches that were in the reception marquee.
