October has been a busy month for us. We have attended 2 wedding fayres, and met lots of lovely Brides and Grooms to be and many suppliers
Richard my husband is a Professional photographer, and he also exhibited with me (which was nice as he doubles up as my chauffeur and someone to carry my bags!
What the Brides and Grooms said
The feedback from the brides and grooms was tremendous, we love meeting couples face to face. We know that it is really important for you to click with your wedding planning and photographer. One thing came out loud and clear – many couples appreciate having an independent person to speak to, as opposed to the “planners at the venue” that only seem to recommend “preferred suppliers”
Another thing that really came out of the fayres for us are the amount on brides and grooms organising themed weddings – ranging from medieval through to tea parties and “strictly come dancing”. Again all of these couples were struggling with making the wedding planners at the venues really take on board what they really wanted
And now for the champagne
We ran a prize draw for a bottle of Champagne, and today we pulled the winner out of the bag!
Our congratulations go to Vicki & James from just outside Newark – who won our bottle of Champagne
We wish Vicki & James all the best with their wedding planning and hope their dream day goes wonderfully
Where we have been
2 Weeks ago, we exhibited at the fayre in the marquee at Langford Hall, which is literally a few minutes away from us. This is a super venue, and we totally enjoyed the day
Yesterday we attended the wedding fayre at Stubton Hall, which was very busy. We feel a little hoarse, and feel like we spent the last few weekends talking and talking and talking and we both have sore feet!
Richard my husband said that people really wanted coverage all day long, and a disk with all of the images signed over to them. It seems that’s all he was being asked for all day long, which is super, because that’s just what he offers. The other trend that came out was that people seem to want something to go on the wall, as well as albums
We met some super suppliers, both really local and from afar. Some of the floristry, stationary and dresses were absolutely amazing!
We wish all the lovely couples we have met over the last few weeks our congratulations. Wedding planning can be hard work, but it ought to be fun. Stick with it, and do call us when you need some help
