What is your most memorable wedding?
They are all memorable. We are very lucky to meet so many lovely couples, many of whom remain in contact and friends with us following their events. It is a very personal service we provide to our couples and as such we build firm relationships with them and become a part of their day, especially when we are there from start to finish at the end of the evening with the disco too!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Sophisticated, Pretty, Sparkly, Quality, Professional
What about your business are you most proud of?
The growth we have had over the last 13 years.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't always assume cheaper is better, so often its not! You cannot compare 'see through net curtain style draping' stapled to the walls with free standing, fire retardant black out drapes! Likewise, you can't compare a popcorn machine capable of producing 30 portions per hour against one that produces 150 per hour! We help out so many couples last minute each year have been let down by their current supplier. Many supplier websites have services listed that they 'don't do' but they don't disclose this to the couple. The problem then comes when the 3rd party that the supplier uses to provide the service they don't have lets them down, which ultimately then lets you down!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A groom singing to his new wife!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We invite the couple to our showroom for a relaxed friendly chat over a glass of wine. We find out about the couples likes and dislikes and what their aspirations are for their big day. We then show them examples, videos and photos of services they select. We follow up our meeting with a detailed no obligation quotation for them to discuss at home together (we don't want them to feel pressured into doing anything which is why we wait until they have gone to send them a quote). When they have decided exactly which items to proceed with, we send over payment details and a booking form for them to sign and send back. That's it, all sorted and booked in the diary, they can then sit back and relax knowing we have it all taken care of.
What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?
There are too many too list!
What are the decorative trends with brides currently?
Rose Gold, Bronzes, Champagnes, blush pink colours.
What is your signature finishing touch?
We take pride in all our work and try to go the little extra mile for all our clients.
What decoration do you think every wedding needs?
Deep deluxe swags and bows or twinkle table skirt for the top table.
