Amaranthyne wedding and events

A couple of Sunday's ago I met up with Amy from Amaranthyne for a chat and coffee and cake. First I must say we met at Doddington Hall cafe where the cake is absolutely delicious. A busy farm shop to boot, selling all sorts of fantastic goodies which is worth a visit if you are in the area. Unfortunately we didn't get a good look around the shop as we had been chatting so long we were virtually kicked out at closing time. You know that feeling where the staff, who were lovely, actually start sweeping the floor around you as a hint!
Amy and I certainly got along discussing each others buisnesses and how we may benifit by knowing each other. Her organisational skills are excellent and would be an asset to any bride (and groom) who were thinking of hiring a planner.
Wedding planners are fairly new around here but up and down the country they seem to be used alot more. They are not just for the large, big budget weddings and can help in all sorts of ways. From helping with planning from start to finish, finding that hard to find supplier or just with helping you out in the last few weeks when it all can get a bit much. Amy can also just be on hand for the day, helping co-ordinate all your suppliers allowing you to enjoy the day, knowing it is all taken care of.
The best way to see how Amy, or any other planner, can help you is to get in touch and see for yourself, it may surprise you.

Gainsborough Old Hall Wedding Fayre

Back on 29th April I attended the Gainsborough Old Hall Wedding fayre. This is a 'new' venue for weddings opening up again after an overhaul.
Although the weather was awful over 200 guests made the effort to come and look around this beautiful olde world building, and those of you who stopped by to say hello, both John and I thank you.

Bride Beautiful Ltd weddings at Elsham Hall

I am very pleased to announce I am now on the list of official suppliers at Elsham Hall.

Elaine of Brides Beautiful Ltd has very kindly asked if I would join her, and her wonderful other suppliers, in providing fresh flowers for her lovely brides and grooms.
Elaine has a wonderful Aladdins cave of wedding goodies set up in her area of the barn with displays from photographers, cake makers, dress makers, tiaras and jewellery etc and now my flower display joins the others. She has a very relaxed outlook on the weddings she takes, with couples able to make the day truly unique to them, using any suppliers they like, but having a trusted list to help guide the way.
