    Add a Touch of Summer to your day!

    It may seem like the summer sun is a long way away, but believe it or not it is just around the corner! If you are planning to have your wedding during the fabulous summer months, then here are a few fun and interesting ideas you may wish to incorporate:

    If you have got outside space at your reception venue, set up some chairs and giant games so guests can enjoy the glorious summer sun before sitting down to the wedding breakfast

    Instead of serving guests canapés on arrival, try Pimms and ice cream – we have some funky vintage ice cream carts which can be hired out to serve your guests an array of tasty treats!

    For the bride and bridesmaids vintage parasols and colourful fans are a great way to keep cool – you can even hand out fans to guests as favours

    Themes for this summer are set to be bright and beautiful, so why not go with a beach theme using deckchairs and seashells to decorate or try an Indian inspired colour theme with rich coloured fabrics and jewels – we have some great theming and entertainment options available or we can put together something completely bespoke for you!

    Travel in style to your event with an open topped vintage car or horse and carriage, perfect for catching a breeze but also makes a grand entrance! – we have some great options for travel on your special day from quirky tuktuks to an elegant Rolls Royce

    If you need any help with ideas or finding some great suppliers then contact us on 01273 771500 and we will be more than happy to put together a proposal of options for you free of charge.

    Themed weddings get more exciting!

    We’re really excited about the new series of Wedding House on Channel 4. For ages we’ve been banging the drum about having exciting and unusual weddings and been lucky enough to have been the wedding planner for a few crazy brides! But it’s thrilling to see themed weddings on national television.

    The first episode of Wedding House featured an Alice in Wonderland theme for a wedding, with great attention to detail (the devil is in the detail!) and the most amazing costumes – every single guest was dressed up as a character from the story. Giant cupcakes, delicate teacups and saucers for drinking from, giant toadstools, ‘Eat me’ and ‘Drink me’ signs… the props were stunning!

    What was really interesting was seeing the groom change from being slightly reluctant, to really enjoying dressing up. We see this a lot with themed parties and weddings. People feel a bit daft until they really get into the swing of things – then suddenly they find their inner child released and really start to have fun!

    Also in the show was a fantastic Moulin Rouge themed wedding. We thoroughly approve of the complete over-the-topness of this theme and even more so as the bride and groom are both theatrical types. They even go one step further and include a performance as part of their wedding!

    All this just goes to prove what we’ve been saying for ages. The days have gone where the traditional wedding is the only option. Civil ceremonies have contributed a lot to this change, bringing with them new formats and having no precedent to follow… we love the new creative wedding ideas and in fact we’re working on a Winter Wonderland wedding and a ‘Disney’ themed wedding at the moment. tiki-bar-set-up

    One of the most popular weddings we ever worked on included a full Hawaiian tiki bar (pictured) and two tonnes of sand being brought into the venue! We’ll never forget seeing the wedding guests kick off their shoes and run into the sand laughing and giggling like children!

    So. If you are planning a wedding with a more unusual theme or angle, we can match anything you’ve seen on Wedding House, and a whole lot more besides! We have prop builders, make up artists, actors and performers – everything you need to create the wedding of your dreams and fantasies. Click here to email us

    Fairground stalls are great for creating an atmosphere. You can include toffee apples, candy floss and popcorn stalls that can double as desserts for your guests. We have a great variety of side stalls such as coconut shies, hook a duck and cork shoot, and food stalls for you to hire that all your guests will love!

     

    You can have acts like jugglers, stilt walkers, fire-eaters, caricaturists, clowns and contortionists to entertain and interact with the guests. We have a huge range of circus entertainers available too. The stilt walkers also have a range of outfits to suit your wedding theme – think pink flamingos, Moulin Rouge, clowns and bumble bees… you name it, we got it!

     

    Imagine how and where the entertainers would have the most impact on your day – meet and greet, kids’ entertainment… heck, you could even have someone crazy giving away the bride if you wished!!

     

    If you want to go all the way with the fairground and circus themes why not hire a marquee, big top, dodgems or waltzer!? There is so much available these days and we have it all. If any of this excites you, get in touch and we’ll get the ball rolling…
