The band played on as the sun slipped majestically under the horizon for the final wedding fair of 2011. Green Lawns Hotel in Falmouth rounded off a frantic season in true style.
Remarkably pleasant weather was in abundance matched equally by the hotel’s welcoming, organised and hospitable staff. So many thanks indeed to General Manger, Neil Slade, Front of House Manager, Rachel Wilshaw and the rest of the team for making the day run so smoothly. Not forgetting Janice and Colin from Cornish Brides for organising another great event…they certainly deserve a few weeks off!
Given the time of year, there was a steady stream of prospective bridal couples throughout the day, greeted by a wonderfully eclectic range of wedding service providers. Lily our classic VW Samba campervan was her usual flirtatious self soliciting wows, aahs and, as ever, considerable interest.
Despite attending well in excess of a dozen wedding fairs this year alone, we never cease to be amazed at the number of new and original ideas being served-up. Today was the turn of a group of guys from Camborne Brass Band who have got together to form the Duchy Tuba Quartet. They in turn were equally taken with Lily and could not resist the opportunity for a quick blast in her.
So now you can inject ‘oom-pah-pah’ into proceedings. Available for weddings, concerts, shows and functions, these guys have a wide repertoire which can be tailored to suit the occasion. Pictured in Lily are Dave Hamilton (blue bow tie), James Sturges (yellow bow tie), Matt Rowe (red bow tie) and John Hitchens (black bow tie).
