What is your most memorable wedding?

Each one is memorable for its own reasons but one that will always hold a place in our hearts was our very first.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Rustic, industrial, vintage, festival, boho

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our customer service and attention to detail.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy it and if you have chance a weekend away before the wedding to pamper each other, take time out to remember why your getting married and forget about any stresses encounted on your wedding planning journey.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

One of our lovely couples meeting an elephant!!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

From ordering to posting we keep you updated. With clear timescales so you know when your order will be made, completed and posted. Most orders are taken via email. We have Approx a three month waiting list unless you use our priority service via our etsy shop. (Discounts can not be applied to priority orders)

What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?

For me it would have to be a recent garden party styled wedding, photos are still under wraps but we can't wait to share them with you.

What are the decorative trends with brides currently?

Looking to 2017 greens and blues are going to be big, which are great colours if wanting to incorporate a rustic wood feel as well.

What is your signature finishing touch?

Everything is made and painted by hand, adding a truly personalised finish and a little love.

What decoration do you think every wedding needs?

I think every wedding needs a welcome sign, positioned just outside the door. It's a great way to welcome your guests and really sets the scene for what to expect through the doors.
