Every year at Rebate we have one Wedding that stands out from the rest.
And this year it has been the wedding of our two girls Jo-Ann and Dawn Sefton.
The attention to details was the very finest, and the special touches which the wedding team in rebate put in place for the girls were spectacular.
Outside of the church were two Topiary trees, which stood in pots.
On the trees hung name tags of their family members and friends who had passed away and were not there to spend the special day with the girls.
Each chair in the church had it own handmade name place all finished with beautiful diamantes crystals.
Each pew was decorated, with roses and lilies. There were massive modern glass vases filled with flowers either side of the altar.
The altar had large silver candlesticks and candelabras, with vanilla scented candles.
The church looked magnificent.
Our celebrant Malcolm conducted a very moving ceremony, and not a dry eye was to be seen in the church.
They wore cream trousers suits, and both girls were adorned with diamonds.
They had beautiful wrist corsages, and their fathers had matching boutonnieres.
Their wedding band were white gold and encrusted with diamonds. Lucky ladies!!
The dining room was decorated with tall elegant table centres in greens and ivory, with matching table stationery. White Swarovski crystals were scattered across all of the tables. And the whole of our top dining room look amazingly glamorous
Each guest had their own menu and on the reverse of the card, the girls had left a personal message for each of their guests. All very meaningful and very special.
The evening carried on and the girls and guests boogie all night on the outside terrace, where the Moroccan Lanterns were lit to set the evenings ambience.
Dawn and Jo-Ann, you have been a very special couple to work with.
We have enjoyed ever minute helping you design, create and arrange you special day here at Rebate church and restaurant.
We hope that you both have a marvelous honeymoon, and chill and enjoy your time together.

Well were home, finally…We got home in the early hours on thursday and I was at work 0645 that same morning and the wife followed me a couple of hours later…
We have both just sat down to do this e-mail as we again have never stopped since getting home..
Peckforton Castle cancelled us on friday so we have spent yesterday and today sorting a new venue out which is now done thank god…
We both can’t thank you enough for how our wedding went and how special it was to us and also all our guests…We caught up with most of them last night at Elliots 21st
party and it was luvli listening to what they had to say about the day…Everyone said its the best wedding they have ever been to. My mum keeps telling people its was like
a wedding out of the OK and Hello magazines, others said they felt they were on a movie set or that they were at Posh and Becks wedding but without them 2 being there.
Thank you also for the very touching message you put to us on the blog site, we both cried when we saw it and so have many of others who have seen it since.
We both can’t now wait to see the photo’s,. so if you can tell us what to do as Andrew said we needed 3 songs for him which we have choosen but unsure what to do next.
The honeymoon was fantastic and just kept getting better everytime we moved places…The villa in Quesada was brilliant for partying with all the guests and we had some fantastic memories with all there but after 9 days we were ready to move on and be alone together. The next stop was Palma which was a major surprise to us both and just our city cup of tea with fantastic quaint bars and restraunts(a couple of gay ones) and brill nightlife, so much so that we are going back next year. The cruise was brill and we couldn’t fault a thing, its not the most fancy one I’ve done but value for money, entertainment, food and of course drinks it was fantastic. Dawn was made up to see Strongbow on draft which also made us laugh on the last night after the bar bill arrived and between us we had signed for 195 alcholic drinks in a week..ha ha..so obviously with all the food and drink in that week we found some of the weight we lost prior to the wedding..ha ha..
Our final stop was in a La Finca in Majorca called Son Forbo which was like we had arrived at the gates of heaven after all the partying we had done in Quesada, Palma and the cruise…We just crashed for a couple of days there but then we did a couple of full days touring all the none major tourist places which were fantastic. We went up into the mountains and dawn did some cliff hanging driving which we will never forget for the thril, sights and laughing threw nerves…All the evening we returned to the finca and had a lavish bbq by the pool with bottles of champagne which was just heaven…
Every single bit of the whole experience has been so, so memoriable to us and will always remain very special to us both and we can’t thank and praise you enough in helping us have that experience.
Love and best wishes to you both,
Dawn & Jo Sefton-Kay x
