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.

I cannot begin to explain how brilliant they are
I cannot begin to explain how unbelievably brilliant Jo and her team are. Jo from the beginning was fantastic! She made me feel relaxed and that I could trust her with my important day. You can tell how much she loves her job and how she has such an eye for detail. She understood exactly what I was looking for and made all the visions I had in my head come true. She even visited my venue two weeks before to trial her ideas and in doing so suggested much more beautiful ideas which I had never thought of. She never once was too busy for me if I wanted to pop over and discus a few bits (which I did more than once!). Everyone commented on how fantastic everything looked, especially the ceremony hut which when I first saw, nearly made me cry it was so fantastic. To Jo and the team, Thankyou so so much!! ❤️

Jo was so professional & lovely
We hired Jo & the Make It Special team for our wedding on July 20th 2018. We had lots of different things including the wishing well for our cards, blossom trees & our centrepieces! Jo was lovely when we went to meet her about 2 years ago & I kept in regular contact with her via email in the run up to the wedding. Jo was so professional & lovely & our wedding breakfast room looked amazing with the centrepieces etc. I would 100% recommend Jo to anyone looking for wedding decoration as her prices are very competitive also.

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.
