Spotlight on one of our 2016 weddings…

We’re moving into June for our spotlight this week, a time in the garden where you seem to have the best of both worlds with the spring rhododendrons still in full bloom but also the start of the roses and a real sense of summer on its way. Johanna and Andy lived in Hull at the time of their booking and Tavistock definitely took on a Yorkshire flavour for the weekend of their wedding with their guests filling the local accommodation.    The venue was booked 14 months before the wedding.  After the booking came the lovely news that there would be an additional guest at the wedding, Johanna was pregnant and the baby would be 5 months old by the time of the wedding day.   So as if Johanna didn’t have enough to do organising the wedding, she was also dealing with her pregnancy and a lively toddler, the gorgeously named Amber Lily who was going to be … Continue reading

Our look at the 2017 wedding trends – part 1

I thought we’d take a look at some of the predicted 2017 wedding trends that are being talked about right now.   I mentioned Coco Wedding Venues 2017 wedding trend report which you can see over on their website and we’re getting a lot of reports and predictions in our inbox now about what’s coming up. I look at the trends, of course I do, I’m in the wedding business.   I’m also interested in trends and fashion generally, I like to keep up with new things.   But with interior and fashion trends, if I don’t like the look of it or I don’t think it will suit me or my home, I pass over it, no biggie.   It’s the same with wedding trends, there are some I just don’t get so I don’t adopt them.   Last year a number of trends mentioned tropical colours and flowers, I didn’t see how that would fit with the venue and … Continue reading
