Planning a Wedding to Remember

Planning a wedding? – We’ve collated some of the best wedding companies to help you

We get so many lovely couples through our doors, and online, deciding from our wedding stationery designs on which invitations will complement and enhance their wedding plans and themes. They all love to tell us what their plans are, the issues they’re having and asking if we know and can recommended other wedding suppliers. We’re obviously more than happy to help and also love learning about all those wonderful businesses out there creating beautiful products all aimed to ensure couples get the wedding of their dreams.

So we thought we’d help with a few personal recommendations with a range of wedding suppliers from all the different types of businesses you’ll need when planning a wedding. Obviously these are just a few and there are many many more who our couples have recommended to us and also we have recommended to them.

Being in the beautiful town of Cirencester in the heart of the Cotswolds, we get many couples tying the knot locally to us, but the majority of our wedding invitations are ordered online from London and the surrounding counties. So this is reflected in the business below. If you have a business you think we’d like to know about please do get in touch.

Wedding Planning made easy

Searching suppliers via the internet is so easy compared to wedding planning 10 or more years ago. Now you can find so many different companies locally and nationally which you can choose from. They all give you so much information and great images to make a considered decision. Almost too many suppliers sometimes, but that has created a competitive set of supplier where there’s so much creativity. It’s just amazing searching and seeing so quickly all the wonderful options available. Deciding between them is the hard part. So get clicking.

A good place to start are wedding blogs – there’s so many out there, some national and some local. The Letter Press of Cirencester did a review of wedding blogs recently which you can see on our website. So our first recommendation is a wedding blog and then from there we list some wonderful wedding suppliers across dresses, hair, venues etc.

Wedding Blogs

This is a great blog based website helping you plan your very own perfect day. It highlights real weddings with fabulous imagery and also has a great deal of advice and suppliers for all elements of wedding and really does help you create your own individual style for your very own big day.

Planned to Perfection

There are companies or individuals who can plan you wedding for you, even the actual proposal itself. They can also help with destination weddings. They of course come with a large range of recommended suppliers to choose from all ready hand picked. They can help create your perfect day, especially useful if you’re both very busy people.

Suited and booted and dressed to impress

The White Room

Local to us here in the Cotswolds we always get great comments from our brides choosing the dream dresses in their Minchinhampton showroom. And obviously they’ve dressed some very special brides as well.

Give them wedding cake

Pretty Amazing Cakes are Pretty Amazing Cakes

Truly stunning cakes it would be a crime to cut into them really. They really will be a showcase and centre of any table at any wedding reception. Such beautiful colours and so many different effects used to create a masterpiece. They taste good too apparently!

Hairaising Hair

Small equals beauty with Bryony Eaves

She can do both hair and make up for the bride or the whole wedding party. At your own home and any location you choose, making the run up to your wedding service as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.

Floral displays to make a statement at your wedding

Philippa Craddok Flowers

Philippa states she loves to create wedding flowers designed to meet the individual needs of the bride and venues needing decorating with fabulous colours, blooms and fragrance. Probably the only part of your wedding you can experience with your eyes closed.

Location, location, location

Cowely Manor

Their 55 acres of woodland, lakes and meadows make a fabulous location for a wedding to remember. The bright contemporary interiors make a stunning backdrop to any wedding small or large. Wonderful food is always delicious with welcoming and professional staff to ensure your day runs smoothly.

Give a little extra back

Wedding Favours with Personalised chocolate and Morse Toad

Wedding favours are very much the flavour of the day at the moment. Creating cost effective but memorable wedding favours has become a large part of wedding planning. This is often the area where couple get creative and make their own or certainly put extra time into personalisation. Not On The High Street or Etsy are great places to start your search. Combine personalisation with chocolate from Morse Toad.

Creating memories to share forever

One of many wonderful new wedding photographers - Lush Imaging

Photography is so important to ensure your most amazing day is recorded in a stylish medium for years to come with those you hold near and dear. There’s the obvious traditional photographs which are a must and then those more intimate and personal ones of everyone having a thoroughly good time at the wedding reception and evening reception.

Wedding Entertainment

Magician Duncan Williams 

It’s becoming more and more popular to put on entertainment at your wedding and not just a great band you can dance the night away with. Magicians are very popular at the moment. They can go around the tables and entertain your guests which is great if you’ve got a large wedding breakfast to entertain as the wedding venue gets all the food out or entertain between courses.

We haven’t mentioned Wedding invitations and stationery as I’m sure you all know we have some beautiful wedding stationery designs to suit so many different weddings and so many different wedding couples desires. But if you needed reminding please take a look by clicking on the beautiful image below.


We hope you find this helpful and gets you excited about planning your very own big day to remember forever and ever.

How to write a great letter April 5, 2017

In this modern age of emails, text and direct messaging, even Snapchat, you would think that writing a letter is becoming a lost art and one that many people simply don’t know how to do. But actually it’s not. As digital technologies take over, well almost everything, we can see that trends are moving back towards more traditional values. Music, once it was vinyl, then tape, then CD, then MP3 players, and now streaming, such as Spotify, but what’s growing exponentially? It's vinyl again. The same with jigsaws and colouring books away from computer games.
