Another busy weekend - lots of lovely weddings.
On Friday it was off to Kings where the bride had chosen royal blue taffeta and blue and white ostrich centrepieces - looked stunning.
On Saturday a hunter green wedding at Danesfield House
and the bride and groom had our cream aisle runner to welcome them to the reception.
 
 
 
Then another royal blue taffeta wedding at the Compleat Angler this time with pearl and diamante brooches on the back with our silk rose bushes for the start of the aisle. Sunday we were at Northbook Park where we put on 230 pale green hoods with dusky pink roses in the back! So the whole weekend we were working with either blue or green!

Another busy weekend, Mother's Day too!
We had a large wedding at the Kings Hotel in Stokenchurch, with gold hoods and crystal brooches, silver candelabra and the sun shone!
Another wedding at the Oxford Belfry with beautiful teal green sashes which looked great in their room - hope you had a good day Nicola and Mark.
A smallish wedding at Huntswood Golf Club with refreshing mint green sashes finished our day.
On Sunday (Mothers Day) we supplied Missenden Abbey with vintage china including cake stands and teapots and they did afternoon teas for 109 - we gather that this was a great success.
Sunday was my first Sunday off since the end of January, I spent it catching up in the garden and enjoying the sun!

Notley Abbey Ceremony Room dressed with chair coversNotley Abbey Wedding BreakfastHad a  busy weekend with an 80th Birthday Party at Danesfield House on Saturday, followed by a beautiful wedding at Notley Abbey on Sunday. We dressed the Ceremony Room with white polytwill covers and green sashes and also the Wedding Breakfast in the Refectory - wonderful Spring flowers everywhere and so so pretty.
 
Bella and Richard had a wonderful day.
 
 
We had 2 wedding fairs, one at Stoke Place where we have custom made chair covers for their rather unusual chairs.
We were showing some different options for this year. Hessian is still very popular but how about this for a fresh country feel!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hiding behind is a soft dusky pink hood with pink and ivory tails - these are available in limited colours.
 
We were also at Old Luxters where we are the preferred suppliers. Again we have covers made for their chairs and in a soft ivory to match their tablelinen.
 
Some dates are already fully booked for this year and we are taking lots of new bookings for 2015! Do give us a call if you would like a quote for your wedding.

hot pink swinging tails - new for this year - what a change from a normal sash
We have new ruffle sashes for a totally new look. Limited colours available but these are going to be very hot over the next year!

Another busy weekend!
 
We used crystal silver sashes for a small wedding at Stirrups Country House Hotel with added diamante buckles for extra sparkle.
 
We had a black and white themed wedding at Danesfield House where we used black taffeta sashes which give a beautiful bow - just so sorry that the day started so well weatherwise and then down came the rain!
 
Then on Sunday the sun came out at last and we set up a beautiful sage green sash on the white chair covers in the Versailles room at Danesfield House for a special birthday party.

Huntswood Golf Club had beautiful white chair covers made for their chairs and stunning cerise pink taffeta sashes. Finally Old Luxters looked a picture with their ivory chair covers and petrol blue organza sashes. All the brides had a fantastic time I am pleased to report! Here are some photos showing the venues.

I cant believe that last year we had beautiful March weather - and the year before - and this year its been so terrible!
When will we get some sun.??
Three weddings this weekend, at Danesfield House, Stoke Park and Chartridge so I hope my brides have wonderful days - even if the weather isnt as kind as it could be!

Wedding Fair This Sunday

Posted on March 20, 2013 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (93)
Well the wedding season is upon us and many of you may have met me over the last few weeks at the wedding fairs we have been involved in. Our last wedding fair for a few weeks is at Missenden Abbey this Sunday and we will have both types of chair covers set up and will be showing our beautiful vintage lace hoods to their full glory in the beautiful setting of the Abbey. Come along and have a look, see the organza, taffeta and satin sashes I have as well as the lace hoods. I also hire out silver and gold candelabras and stunning cream ones if you want the full vintage look. I hope to see some of you there!
