What is your most memorable wedding?
We have done quite a few over the years, but the one that sticks in my mind is the one where we entertained the children, with face painting, arts and crafts and some of our giant toys and games, the venue had given us a room small enough to just about swing a cat, so as you can imagine that could have been quite a stress for the bride and groom, all was fine though as we managed to co-ordinate with the venue staff and find a more suitable location to amuse the guests children all in all after that little fluster it was a great night enjoyed by all.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I know it might sound like I'm blowing my own trumpet but ill be honest what I find is when the children of the guests are catered for, and kept entertained, it gives your adult guests time to spend with each other and you and relax a little knowing the children are being kept busy.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
ultimately its your day so what you want is what we will provide, we will happily make suggestions based on what we know has worked well in the past given your particular specifications, but the final decision is yours. Once this has been decided then we will take the relevant details, make the booking and send out booking confirmation forms, which detail what you have booked, what you are paying for and give you any other relevant details required, once you send a copy of that back there is usually a deposit with the rest payable on the day of the event, or if you prefer to pay before hand so you don't have to worry about it on the day that is also fine.
