Bespoke wooden serving trays were created by the brides brother. The canapes and cheese platters were served on the trays which added something extra special.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
An inital phone consultation, dicussing your main requirements, followed by a face to face meeting. If the bridal couple and myself feel that this is the right partnership, I follow the meeting with contract terms, highlighting all details and cost breakdowns. I also create a bespoke design board, showcasing all of the elements dicsused during our meetings and discussions. Once the deposit is paid I then begin your wedding proposal and start supplier searching and planning. I am available for constant update meetings as well as emails for those who have busy lifestyles. I am there from conception to completion.

Allowing you to enjoy the process and get involved as much or as a little as you wish.
