This is one subject that I get asked a lot about when I meet my couples so I thought I would throw some ideas at you. The options are limitless, your budget is not always! I always encourage my couples to think carefully about their favours, not everyone has them but if you want to offer your guests a gift then it needs to be something that they will want and not discard on the table at the end of the night. Even better if it is something that can be taken home and serves as a lovely memory of your special day.
I am pretty sure if you told people you were having your wedding in a garden centre most people would think you were a bit strange and smile politely! But what if you were having it at Petersham Nurseries?

Eridge Village Hall was the last setting and boy it didn’t disappoint in the pretty stakes. The moment we walked in we were so happy with the light and the space, the fact that it was one of the hottest days in June and we had the use of the beautiful garden and the view was amazing all helped!!
If you didn’t know already I absolutely LOVE flowers, my feed on Instagram is full of them, I sometimes worry that people will mistake me for a florist! I most certainly am not.
I have a bit of a thing for April! Because it is my birthday month I always get a bit excited which is silly I suppose especially when the days of party hats and candles are long gone – honestly we don’t do that anymore!
I always think when putting a plan together one should always do it in gorgeous surroundings!! This was certainly true when Tamsyn and I met for afternoon tea at Sketch in London last September and spent the day scheming and plotting!! From there the idea of the Decorative Vintage Styling Workshops were born.
Loads of people do it, I never have and I only ever had the minimum amount of maternity leave so I’ve never even been a stay at home mum. Since a very early age I have always worked for someone and now……
