Shades of Gold

This weekend we catered for a fantastic wedding at the very beautiful country venue, Heaton House Farm. We certainly seemed to have the Midas touch. One colour kept popping up throughout the day – glorious gold!


Heaton House Farm looked stunning surrounded by a blanket of rich seasonal colours and inside, the venue looked spectacular! From the stylish gold charger plates to the gold trimmed glasses provided by our friends at Whitehouse Crockery, the tables looked the epitome of Autumn style.

Upper House Hayfield

Here at Vanilla in Allseasons, we pride ourselves on working with some of the most bespoke wedding venues in the country. Upper House, a former hunting lodge stands alone on the magnificent mountain of Kinder Scout in the Peak District National Park.

Upper House

Nestled within 30 acres of private woodland, and with exclusive fishing and sporting rights to Kinder Reservoir, Upper House is a spectacular remote country retreat featured only 24 miles from Manchester city centre.


A castellated fortress that is wrapped around a stunning central courtyard, the house comprises of a medieval banqueting hall, original inn and luxurious accommodation for up to 21 guests.

Upper House Doorway

As expected from any historical building, each room is steeped in nostalgia as is clear when you step through the grandiose venue. The ancient farmstead dating back to at least the 14th Century was used as a shooting lodge for the Mayor of Manchester, James Watts before becoming a centre for recreation. Upper House even played host to famous author, Agatha Christie as she would visit for seclusion to devise her legendary plots.


The interior has been carefully restored to bring it into its former glory and still features its original detailing. Many of the weddings we have catered for have stripped back on decoration allowing the venue’s beauty to be the theme of the wedding.

Romantic Heart-Themed Wedding at Old Moat Hall

The heart is one of the most recognised symbol for love. When it isn’t overdone, a heart wedding theme can be whimsical, sophisticated and incredibly romantic.

This weekend we catered for a wedding at Old Moat Hall, a beautiful venue in Chelford, Cheshire, that incorporated the heart theme along with some vintage touches.

Heart Themed Guest List

The simple and sweet hearts theme can be infused in details throughout the wedding and reception. This table plan made from caging is shaped like a heart with detailing, the delicate flowers and luggage tags adds a nostalgic rustic touch.

Old Moat Hall

The elegant neutrals of the marquee layout creates a relaxed atmosphere whilst enhancing the romantic elements of the table decoration. The chiavari is a very popular chair style, which are suited to both modern and formal occasions. They add to the vintage feel of the decoration along with the luggage tag place cards and flower and frame centrepieces.

Old Moat Hall

Roses are Red

The weekend’s glorious wedding allowed for an area outside in Old Moat Hall’s beautiful gardens. The heart theme continued throughout the venue with paper heart decorations and lanterns featuring heart shaped cut outs. There was also traditional romantic phrases placed around the venue, including the ‘Roses are Red’ sign hanging from a beautifully blooming tree.

We also spotted this charming poem about how the newlyweds feel about each other:


Would you go for a traditional romantic heart shaped theme for your wedding? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

A Thank You From The Rushgroves

We recently featured a spectacular wedding on our blog that was located in the beautiful Whitmore Hall.

Whitmore Hall Marquee

With the venue only hosting four weddings a year it was a truly unique ceremony that we were grateful to cater for. We are even more overwhelmed by this message we received from the newlyweds:

Thank You Note

“Alexis and myself had a fabulous wedding day and we would particularly like to thank yourself and your team of staff for the excellent food and service. We have subsequently received praise from a number of guests on the quality of the canapés, meal and your staff. We thoroughly enjoyed the food too! For my own part, I would also like to express my gratitude for your assistance with the cheese cake and advice with my speech. Both of which were outside of your remit but very much appreciated!

Thanks to your team.

With kind regards,

Nick and Alexis Rushgrove”

We thoroughly enjoyed the day and would like to thank everyone that was involved in the special day.
