Cakes

Crowland Cake Creations

Linda bakes and decorates fabulous cakes, which taste as good as they look - and I know because I've tasted them! I've also put flowers on them a few times too :-) If you're looking for a unique handcrafted cake for your wedding do take a look at some of Linda's creations....

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.

Venue Dressing

Dilly & Taylor

Helen from Dilly & Taylor is a perfectionist - it must go with the name! If you are looking for beautifully tied chair sashes, runners and swags, or spotlessly clean and crease-free chair covers, do talk to Helen. As you can imagine I do see a lot of venues once they have been dressed and are waiting for their floral centrepieces...

Venues

Barnsdale Hall Hotel

This favourite venue of mine is in a lovely setting on the edge of beautiful Rutland Water, which makes it a perfect place for your wedding reception if you are planning a ceremony at nearby Normanton Church. However, the hotel can accommodate your wedding ceremony too as well as having one of the largest reception rooms in the area in a self-contained suite. The super-efficient wedding team will help to make your day perfect.

Bassmead Manor Banrs

What an amazing venue! I was blown away the first time I visited the stunning barns set amongst fabulous countryside and I just love being asked to work here. The barns stand within the medieval moat of an ancient manor house – what could be more romantic! The staff are lovely and very efficient and I have heard good things about the food too. And just wait until you see the honeymoon cottage….
