Festive favours

Festive favours

Q. For our winter wedding, I really would love to give guests festive favours to remember our special day. What would you suggest?

A. Abbie Hancock says: We suggest our beautiful walnut festive place names, tick two things off your list in one go! Our walnut place names double up as a favour that your guests can keep as a little personal memento from the special day. Cut in the shape of a star and featuring a little holly motif, they're perfect for a festive wedding with each individually designed and laser engraved for every guest. Use a ribbon to match wedding colours and tie together cutlery around your napkins or fasten around your wine glass stems to complete stylish festive table décor.

Something a little different and the perfect addition to a Christmas tree that allows guests to use them year after year!

Styled to perfection

Q. Our venue has a really high beamed ceiling and we want it to feel a bit more cosy and intimate - what do you suggest?

A. Kerry Baskerville says: We love to decorate venues where the brides can let their imagination run. Its amazing how one venue can be decorated in so many different ways. No one wedding is the same as another. Pimhill Barn is a fabulous venue, a beautiful rustic barn. The challenge was to make it interment and romantic. After discussions with the bride and her ideas, we decided on lowering the height by using large white drapes interspersed with fairylight strings. It worked perfectly, creating a stunning romantic ceremony and wedding reception.

From me to you

From me to you

Q. I'm looking to combine my place names and favours so our guest have a special personalised gift from our nuptials. What would you suggest?

A. John Winwood says: I'd recommend trying to keep it as personal as possible. Providing a gift that is a bespoke memento and acts as a reminder of your special day is priceless and will continue to bring a smile to your loved ones well after your wedding. A fantastic example of this that we have recently created were sunflowers personalised with the name of the guest that visually reflected the theme of the client's wedding, which was important to them. If you prefer something a little different, we've also produced heart notebooks so that the happy couple can write a personal message to each of their friends and family members to really give their favour a thoughtful touch. Keeping it simple and personal to you will ensure long-lasting memories of the day itself.
