It will be simplistic and in list form, but if you want any further information then simply book a Bridal call and we can go through your wedding plans in detail, see how I can implement some Alex's bridal magic over your plans and we can ensure your vision comes to life just as you always thought it would - STRESS FREE!

So let's Delve!!!!!

  • Wedding Dress - Dotty Bridal Experience is everything for me, and these guys are the best! So proud to now work with these guys in lots of ways, and would love to see new Brideys in their stores this year! Did you see their new boutique located in the new Charlotte Mills store? The Aisle Edit? Can't wait to be here!!!! Any dress questions you have - I AM HERE!

Dress designer - Justin Alexander

  • Venue - The Tithe Barn, Cripps & Co

  • Florist - Walter & Blossom - What can I say about Sophie, perfectionist and truly passionate about what she does and all of her brides, her work is immaculate and I am so proud to continue working with her throughout 2023!

  • Photographer - Lianne Gray - Instantly felt at ease when I met Lianne and she has given us memories and moments in photos that will last a lifetime, forever grateful.

  • Videographer - Harrison Fletcher - AFletcherfilm I still cry when I watch Harrison's videos from our day, something I can't wait to share with our little boy Teddy when he's older, to be able to show him and say you were there... just amazing! I'd recommend a videographer to everyone if budget allows!

  • Venue Styling - Belle Bijoux These two gorgeous girls are a dream to work with! Their eye for detail and the way they bring your vision to life with their added luxury touches is just the best! Can't wait to see more of their work this year!

  • On the day coordinator and wedding planner - Mrs Taylor - Hannah - Wellllll isn't she just a delight! Hannah was exactly what I needed her to be on my day and in the weeks before. I needed someone to be inside my head, and know all my plans and bring them to life. And she did. Trusting your suppliers with your vision, is one of the best pieces of advice I can give you

  • Suits - Peter Posh - I had come across these guys through Pinterest, and the suits didn't disappoint! Amazing quality - we had the Navy Uppington suit, with the Brown Royal Waistcoat, And Paisley pocket square and tie, Rich wore Ivory and the boys wore champagne. Shoes and Shirts we bought from them!

  • Mens Vehicle Hire - Yorkshire vehicle hire Incredible service, immaculate vehicles! Would recommend to anyone wanting land rover on your big day! The photos are amazing and the boys loved their drive!

  • Magician - Scoop Magic Paul is unbelievable at what he does! A true entertainer but with one of the kindest natures! He had our guests wowed from start to finish! Would recommend to all!

  • DJ - Chris Smith Chris is the best! I'll never forget our conversation at the end of our wedding! I chose the best suppliers and I know that, a group of genuine people who were as invested in our day as we were! Chris you are awesome!

  • Saxophonist - Elliot Labbate - this guy is so talented! The perfect addition to our band and DJ - moved and worked the room, appealed to all ages of our wedding and we couldn't have asked for more after he plugged in and played with our band! Amazing recommendation from Chris, these two work together quite often!

  • Band - The Brightsparks If you don't know the story that came from these guys being at our wedding, then just know they brought the love, the dancing and the Pop rock vibes from start to finish! Local band to me, and would recommend to all!

  • Undercover Artists - Fantastic extra to have, no one knew about these guys except me, my mum and my sister (I needed them to help me choose the songs) It was a surprise to Rich and everyone LOVED them! Chris Smith (DJ) walked past as these guys were on and said to me, I knew then this was going to be an amazing party!

  • Hair & Makeup - Your Bridal Team (Ash & Vicky) I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day, I was glowing from the inside out, and these two brought my entire vision to life!

My beautiful table plan now sits on the wall in my office so I can always look back and remember the special day we had! The amount of changes she also had to make - patience of saint!

  • Invitations - Designs by Dani This gorgeous girly, is a perfectionist when it comes to her work! She helped me through multiple date changes, creating PDF invites for me to send out. Our original date invitations are the ones we photographed in our wedding, for a reason. Our original date will always mean something to us, but our forever date was always the day we should have said our vows!!!

  • Wedding Cake - Where the Ribbon Ends - The cake that looked as good as it tasted! When Gayle said to me, I have an idea Alex what we can do with your cake, I trusted her implicitly for good reason. My cake resembled in design my dress -(Look close for the beading on layer two like my belt, and the laser print on layers 1 & 3 which was the same design as my dress - SO CLEVER)! It was STUNNING! And tasted unbelievable - We had Raspberry and White Chocolate, Original Vanilla, and Salted Caramel!

  • Wedding Scent Candles (Gifts and in the room) - Bride in Mind (We can supply for weddings) this is one of my favourite ideas!
