Pinterest - Endless Wedding Inspiration

Sat, 19/03/2016 - 19:36 -- Marion

Pinterest is my favourite place to go for inspiration. I will often make-up boards for my clients so we can track dress colours against flowers, ribbons, chair sashes etc. Today I got carried away with my own 'fantasy' wedding and created a Rose Gold board. The rose colours are delicious - with shades of pink, creams and champagnes. Check out the sparkly tablecloths, the designer balloons and I love the ribbon backdrop - so simple but effective.

Well I have been on the side of the "balloons not for weddings" fence for a long time but now I am eating my words. Balloons are fighting back and are beautiful in size, shape and colour. I love the balloons dressed in tulle - like ready made bridesmaids and look perfect dotted along a wedding aisle. Cake tables can be dressed beautifully to hide any nasty walls and backgrounds and therefore giving you stunning photographs (without your phototgrapher having to edit out a sign for the toilet or fire escape!).

NEW Online Store

Thu, 28/01/2016 - 23:19 -- Marion

After many late nights and HTML head baffling coding. I am very excited to announce the launch of our ONLINE SHOP. The opportunity to purchase regular items more easily, directly off the page with just a few clicks. At the moment the shop is geared towards Valentine's Day with Mother's Day to follow, and a few of our popular sympathy items, but I am looking forward to extending the products to include wedding flowers and venue hire - WATCH THIS SPACE!

Swanley Banqueting

The Alexandra Suite is right on our doorstep and can cater for up to 300 guests. One of the biggest venues in our local area. Features high ceilings draped with fabric, a separate area for your ceremony and plenty of room for celebrating with a bar in the same room! We recommend adding a red carpet for your big entrance, a bridal arch for photos and we have a selection of tablecentres from low fishbowls to huge Hollywood glamour ostrich feather arrangements. Top this all off with an exploding confetti balloon to hang over the dance floor.
