One of the songs we chose for our guests to listen to whilst they were waiting for me to join Paul at the registrar’s desk was The Chapel of Love by The Dixie Cups, it’s light hearted, it’s fun and hopefully it sets a fun tone for the celebration that is about to take place.
Having set our music in advance and sent it off to the Registrar it got me thinking and as I was ordering our sweets for the Candy Bar I found myself singing the Chapel Of Love song.
From there I thought of a chapel I had pinned to my Mr & Mrs Pinterest board.
From there I thought of my Gingerbread house made from my Lakeland mould at Christmas which could also be used for chocolate
and there it was I could make my own one and decorate it with sweets to go on the Candy Bar
Make your own Chapel of Love
You need:1.2k chocolate Lots of sweets to decorate a piping bag a base to construct it all on
We melted the chocolate in the microwave and poured it into the moulds
Leave the chocolate to set for at least two hours – I put mine in the fridge
Carefully release the pieces from the mould with as less handling as possible to avoid fingerprints on the chocolate
Using the piping bag, pipe chocolate along the sides that need gluing. I started with one side and the back then added the second side and the front. I used glasses to prop against the sides until the chocolate set
Once the four sides are fixed, I added one side of the roof and then filled our Chapel of Love with Jelly Beans and chocolate eggs.
then it was time to decorate the outside. I chose Love Hearts, Jelly Babies and pink smarties
I also used a few Curly Wurlys as a fence around the ‘garden’
And finally on the Candy Bar
