We met Sarah about eight years ago at the National Wedding Show and have had the pleasure of working with her at several weddings. She has a wonderful eye for detail and loves anything quirky; often seeing shots that you would never have dreamed of.
This is a personal recommendation (particularly as they feed us at all the wedding fairs!) Michael & Graham Hockley design cakes to die for - their chocolate fudge cake is second to none - and their fruit cake is like sponge cake. Nothing is too much trouble for them - even taking a rosebud from one of our invitations to match the roses on the cake! Always copied, never beaten.
Locally here in Northamptonshire we highly recommend you make an appointment to see Rhiannon and Bethan at The Courtyard Bridal Boutique (yes, as seen on BBC2). Along with mum Anne, they truly are the most professional family-run business you will ever come across. They are fabulous as is their eclectic range of designer wedding dresses.
Just over the border in Leicestershire, we have the wonderful Debbie at Wedding Belles in Kibworth. They have a wonderful selection of bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses, promwear and have their new range of Mother of the Bride outfits too.
One of the most beautiful country estates on the Nortahmptonshire/Leicestershire border. Offers romance, grace and tranquility - the perfect setting.
