Your Perfect Day Doesn't Have To Cost A Fortune
We always suggest an introductory meeting, no cost and no hard sell, just the opportunity to do what women (and men) do best, sit, have a coffee and chat. We want to know about the plans for your big day, your hopes and dreams. And from that point we work backwards, discussing where you need support, what are your biggest concerns and most importantly what you need. We aren’t here to be an additional cost to the wedding, our job is to make your day special and unique, but more importantly stress free. As a business in the wedding industry, we have a catalogue of tried and tested suppliers that we trust, and have a great relationship with. Knowing, not only will they provide the most competitive of prices, but the highest quality service.
