If you’re about to tie the knot, you’ll no doubt have worries over whether or not your guests will enjoy the wedding. Luckily, Mr and Mrs M have two magic words for you: LAWN GAMES! You know that 90-minute gap between the ceremony and the reception where guests stand around awkwardly while the bridal party takes photos? That’s exactly the gap that this unique wedding entertainment service is designed to fill – so while you’re having beautiful photos taken, your guests are having a blast!

The Mr and Mrs M difference

If you’re worried that you’ll need to stand around presiding over the games, you needn’t be. That’s because the Mr and Mrs M difference means complete event management from start to finish, with qualified instructors on site to organise the games and encourage participation. Their team will have your guests kicking off their heels and joining the action in no time. In fact, by the time your reception starts, you may need the team’s help tearing everyone away!

Say cheese!

There’s more to the #lawngames than just games, however – there’s the opportunity for epic candid shots too. If you’re concerned you may not have enough snaps of family and friends on the day, just wait until the games begin! The Mr and Mrs M experience is the perfect chance for guests to capture all the action, from happy snaps to group shots to tears of laughter too.

The perfect match for every venue

One thing about the Mr and Mrs M team – they’re not afraid of a challenge. So even if you think your venue isn’t suited to lawn games, they’ll have the perfect solution for you. What’s more, they’ll even visit the venue ahead of time to plan which games would work best. So whether your wedding location is a prime spot for boules, or noughts and crosses, you can be sure your guests will have a ball.
