Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Jo Winfield-O'Hare
From the first consultation with a couple, finding out what they want and offering suggestions if they don’t know, to the final day when all the planning comes together. When we look at the end result of a dressed room, it gives us a feeling of great pride, knowing that in a small way, we have made memories for the happy couple to treasure. We are passionate about what we do, always looking for new ideas and inspiration that we can share with others.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
Meet for consultation, listen carefully to their ideas and dreams, put together a plan, deliver the plan, ask for feedback following the wedding. Brides know they can contact me throughout if they have any questions, ideas or concerns.
What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?
Too many to select just one.
What are the decorative trends with brides currently?
Pantone’s colour of the year is ‘greenery’. Centrepieces and décor with an abundance of foliage and leaves. Faux trees are an ideal way to tie this into your décor. Compliment with white and silver accents. Rustic wedding are still very popular. So greenery and wooden decorations fit perfectly with a rustic theme.
