Had a wonderful meeting with the lovely Kayleigh of , we had a busy business chat over a cup of tea (of course). Kayleigh is so easy to chat to, no wonder her clients recommend her so highly. I hope very soon to be working with her wedding and event planning business x 

Woodland window display

The wonderful Kate at Bridal Reloved asked me to do a Autumn window for their shop in Dorchester, Dorset. I decided on a woodland theme with logs, toadstools and gorgeous coloured leaves, this could easily be a centrepiece for a woodland wedding

New season

Sorry so long since my last post, we have another amazing year, now  the wedding season is a bit quieter and wedding fairs about to begin.

Our teacup candlesticks have been popular and as always the teacup candelabras make a stunning centrepiece.

Always adding to our china collection we can now supply white and gold bone china for a very classic look.  Our first wedding fair of the season is at Parley Country Club - a new venue for us to exhibit at this sunday from 12 -3. Planning a new display is exciting and hoping new brides like the new display.
