Welcome to my first ever blog, let me start by telling you how I got into the venue dressing business!! When I got married seven years ago I paid quite alot of money for the room to be dressed with chair covers, organza bows, swags, slip cloths and sprinkles but it really did transform the room we had at Cranage Hall, Cranage, Cheshire. The outside of the building was beautiful but inside it was more of a conference venue and such alot of time and money was spent organising my perfect day it was very important that the venue was as stunning as me in my wedding dress….only kidding but it was nice to have everything in the same colours as my dress and bridesmaids dresses. After the wedding I sat thinking how much I had enjoyed planning my day and how stunning the room looked and thought it was something I would be interested in and would love to do so I offered to dress the room of my friends wedding at Keele Hall, Keele, Newcastle under Lyme.
The room looked amazing (even though I say so myself) and from then on the business has grown and is still growing, at a fast rate, and my mum has also come onboard offering floral arrangements, brides bouquets, buttonholes etc. so we really are a one stop shop with a freindly but professional approach. I will cater for as much or as little as required. We cover the Staffordshire and Cheshire areas but are more than happy to travel outside of these areas if needed, a recent example of this is a wedding we did at Drayton Manor Park, Tamworth, Shropshire. I have done many parties, weddings, christenings and birthday parties over the years but I never tire of completely transforming a venue for someones special day.
Next weekend is the busiest weekend of weddings so far and I am very excited as I have five weddings on the same day at Alsager Golf Club in Cheshire (a regular venue of mine), The Manor House in Cheshire, Westwood Golf Club in Leek, Staffs, The Izaac Walton Hotel in Dovedale and Moorville Hall in Staffordshire. Then the week after Im looking forward to dressing a vintage wedding at Three Horseshoes in Leek, Staffs where I will definately be posting some photographs as Im really excited about that one, and then Im off to The Marriott Hotel in Manchester for one of the largest weddings ive done so far. Anyway enough for now but I will be back soon with an update and pictures..
