Here you will find a list of key suppliers and service providers that I can personally recommend. As my recommendations will clearly reflect back on me, you can be sure that I am only listing businesses that I know well and would be happy to use myself.

Cakes

The Mimosa Bakery

Holly's cakes not only look fabulous, but they taste delicious too, believe me I've tried them!  Whether you are looking for a traditional wedding cake, or funky cupcakes and cookies for your wedding or party, The Mimosa Bakery will make you something very special.  I particularly like Holly's hand painted cakes - truly stunning!  I am also happy to work with Holly if you would like your cake decorated with fresh flowers to match your other flower designs.

Brides' Cars

Do you like the idea of arriving at your wedding in style in a classic Rolls Royce?  Tony and Joan Richardson run a family wedding car hire service, with an emphasis on good service and making you feel very special for the day.  They own a gorgeous dark blue Rolls Royce Silver Spirit, which Tony polishes meticulously (and yes, I did do the flowers for the back window!), and also a sand coloured Lexus 450 Hybrid.  Brides' Cars is based in Ramsey Heights and covers all the local counties.

Dresses

The Stamford Bridal Rooms

What can I say?  The Stamford Bridal Rooms simply stocks the most gorgeous wedding gowns that I have ever seen!  Beautiful designer dresses with absolutely exquisite detailing - oh to be young and getting married again (sorry Babe, but it would still be to you....).  Aimee is a lovely lady and she will look after you well, so if you're still looking for your perfect dress her shop is definitely one to visit.

Fitness

Stamford Personal Fitness

All brides want to look their best for their wedding day, and we all know that it sometimes means losing a bit of weight and toning up to fit into the dress you have set your heart on, particularly as you will have cameras pointing at you all day long!  If you're like me and find it difficult to motivate yourself to exercise regularly and watch what you eat, then I can't recommend Stamford Personal Fitness highly enough.  In my case it's more about keeping myself physically and mentally fit enough to do my job - floristry involves an awful lot of heavy lifting - and Rob has been incredibly supportive and encouraging during the 18 months I have trained with him.  What's more, he makes training fun!

Photography

Rachel Barnes

Rachel simply takes beautiful photographs. But more than that, she has a way of making even the most reluctant of people relax and look their best in front of the camera - and I should know because I hate having my photograph taken!  Your photographs are so important as they are a permanent reminder of your special day, so make sure you pick someone who is highly qualified and experienced like Rachel so you can be confident your memories will be captured.
