We chose to get married in Manchester as it's where we live and met, and we wanted something a bit different to the usual country house wedding. having the reception in a restaurant was a brilliant money saver, no hire charge, better food than normal weddings!
City feel was good, great phots around the town hall and library. Very public, lots of people watching outside church (over a hundred!)
Cannot recommend our florist highly enough, Becky Hay from Blossom in Chorlton. Really high end feel to her designs, excellent replication of magazine styles from top London florists. Real attention to detail and interest in my vision for the flowers whilst offering helpful advice and an absolute pleasure to work with her and her team.
Flowers were the most important part of my planning and Blossom did not disappoint. Stunning arrangements, intuitive friendly and helpful staff. Cannot recommend them enough.
Only got 4 stars instead of five as they are expensive, unfortunately their reputation is so good they can charge extra. Great band, open to song choices given in advance and will learn something new for your first dance. Very professional, I was certainly glad of the fact that they could do these things standing on their heads and consequently the communication we had with them was minimal. One less stress!
Really relaxed arty young husband and wife team. Pleasure to work with, no bossy photographers! Great modern photography and reportage style.
Amanda on the Laura Mercier counter in Harvey Nichols did my wedding make-up. Very receptive to my ideas, make-up stayed put all day, didn't look fake or caked on.
Located in Grays Antiques market, London. Lovely man, extremely helpful, spent over an hour helping me select the right tiara. Beautiful quality heirloom product.
Jenny coreographer a dance for our first dance. We had 5 lessons and ended up with a great routine (to our choice of music) which didn't look too 'strictly ballroom', just stopped us shuffling right to left for 3 and a half minutes!
Stunnin invitations, handmade and custom designed for us by Kristy and her team. Great process and huge amount of input and effort from them. Nearly all done via the web as Kristy is based in the US!
Stunning Church and welcoming congregation. HUGE crowd outside when I arrived for the wedding!
Beautiful building and excellent food. Very poor at planning though, really let us down as wedding planner went on holiday without telling us, 1 day before wedding! Bill was wrong and still not resolved 6 weeks later. Complaints not answered. Poor communication.
Stayed here the night before wedding and night of, with our families. Excellent hotel. they hosted a BBQ for us night before. EXCELLENT food and organisation. I didn't have to do a thing. Beautiful garden and interior. Wish I'd had the wedding here!
