Adventures in 'Weddingland'

With this table plan and these glittered rose petals I take thee...

After a Summer of Chief Bridesmaid | Wedding Planner | Events Management duties I have learnt a fair amount about how to pull off a beautiful, enjoyable, stylist event - and have it run to time. It's all about the people you use, the people who take the photographs, style your hair and serve your food.

Lydia and Gareth's 'Midsummer Nights Dream' inspired wedding at Slaugham Place, West Sussex wouldn't have been the same without the creative and talented individuals which made the day sparkle and shine and the left the guests (and bride!) breathless...

I may not have (in the words of Beyonce) 'a ring on it' yet, but if anyone at all is going to be there to take my wedding photographs when I do it will be Alex.

From the moment he arrived at Pound Cottage he fitted in to the bridal madness and made Lydia, Jody and I feel comfortable with his lens around. His creativity and ideas are amazing and the results are breathtaking. Even seeing the teeny, tiny previews of some of his photographs on the camera preview has gave me goosebumps.

The fairytale cake with cascading white chocolate layers,  fluttering dragonflies and beautiful floral design was the perfect addition to the magical marquee and was baked and intricately designed and crafted by La Papillon Patisserie

Layered with the Bride and Groom's favourite flavours, this wasn't your average wedding cake. Lydia and I first came across the delicious delights baked by this luxury patisserie at a wedding fayre in London. We couldn't tear ourselves away from their stand. It wasn't just their cake samples though, like with Alex, Neil's personality and approachability made him stand out and the combination of his premier baking talent made him the perfect choice for the big day. (I still have a few slices of cake in the fridge too!)
