An elegant wedding at Cantley House Hotel @cantleyhotel

For this recent wedding at Cantley House Hotel (@cantleyhotel) the bride wanted a simple, yet elegant look for her Wedding Breakfast. She chose the white crystal organza sashes from our extensive range of sashes. We then used these to dress the chairs, tying them directly on to the Chiavari chairs. The bride wanted her sashes to be tied in a way that would make her wedding unique. After showing her the variety of different tying styles that we have developed over the years, the bride decided to have the sashes tied on the side of the chair. We worked closely with the florist, Emma Curtis Flowers (@ecflowersuk) who completed the look by tucking a single red Gerbera into each sash. The overall result was stunning.

Following the wedding we received this lovely message from the bride’s mum:

Just a little note to thank you for the lovely job you did for us on Saturday.

The sideways sashes were so perfect I couldn’t have wished for more. Such a good idea and you were so helpful and patient with me! The flowers just made it all magical.

I am sending a photo of my daughter as she was such a happy bride and appreciated every aspect of her day and all the hard work everyone put in.

All brides deserve to have the personal, attentive and expert service you provide.

 

Thank you again.

Gorgeous silk sashes for an intimate wedding at The Vineyard Hotel @VineyardNewbury

For this intimate wedding at The Vineyard Hotel, near Newbury (@VineyardNewbury) the bride went about things slightly differently. Rather than choosing sashes to co-ordinate with her bridesmaid’s dress and flowers, she chose her favourite colour for the sashes then matched everything to that colour. We dressed the chairs with our perfect fit white chair covers and then used our teal silk sashes tied in our Butterfly Bow style. The guests’ chairs all had diamanté buckles on their sashes to add a bit of sparkle. The diamanté buckles complemented the brooches on the front of both the bridesmaid’s dress and that of the flower girl. The chairs for the bride and groom had both teal sashes and ivory lace sashes tied in our Rose Knot with leaves style. The ivory lace was chosen by the bride because her dress was made of ivory lace. The bride chose to use our cream aisle runner rather than the traditional red carpet supplied by the hotel because she felt that it was better suited to her colour scheme.

The chairs were perfectly arranged making sure that were in straight lines and we used a tape measure to ensure that each row was the same distance apart. Our trained team spent time checking that all of the sashes were also perfectly straight. The sashes were all the same height on the chairs, and with all of the Butterfly Bows the same size and all of the tails the same length.

This wedding was given the same level of attention as all of our other weddings. However, there was one thing which made this wedding different from all of the others we have dressed; it was our own wedding! For a change we got to see the chairs with our chair covers and sashes on while they were being used. Usually we only have photos which show empty chairs, but this time we have photos of guests in the room and sitting on the chairs for both the Ceremony and the Wedding Breakfast afterwards.

Some of the photos of our wedding that we have used were taken by our photographer, Simon Kemp who captured our day perfectly using his wonderful story telling style. The photos are all very natural, showing everyone in a lovely relaxed way. With special thanks to Simon for giving us permission to use the photos. Other photos were captured by at least 4 cameras, hence the different lighting and colours.

Same colour scheme, different tying styles at Crowne Plaza, Reading Wedding Fair @cp_reading

For a recent Wedding Fair at Crowne Plaza Hotel, Reading (@cp_reading) we were thrilled to be involved in setting up the room ready for brides to have show rounds.  We dressed all of the chairs using the same colour scheme throughout, but demonstrated a variety of our fabulous tying styles for the sashes. For one table we used a combination of our Rose Knot and Rose Knot & Leaves in pink silk and ivory satin sashes. Another table shows a combination of single Butterfly Bows alternating with Double Bows in pink silk and ivory lace sashes. The last tying style used was that of a Corporate Knot. All of the chairs were dressed with our bespoke Twill chair covers which we had made especially for the chairs at the hotel.

Gorgeous purple satin sashes and diamanté buckles at the L’Ortolan Restaurant @lortolan

For this delightful, intimate wedding at the L’Ortolan Restaurant (@lortolan) the bride chose this gorgeous purple for her chair and table decorations. The bride was able to look at the many different purple sashes that we have to offer, during her personal consultation. She chose this particular shade of purple because it was the perfect colour match with the ribbon on her favour boxes and place names. We added a bit of sparkle to the sashes with our diamanté buckles which complemented the design of the favour boxes. To complete the look the bride chose to have a coordinating table runner down the centre of the table. We made the custom length runner so that it fitted down the length of the table exactly. As part of our fitting service we always ensure that the sashes are perfectly straight and all the same height on the chairs. We also make sure that the chairs are perfectly aligned, in this case in a beautifully straight line along the length of the table.

Enchanting sage green and white satin sashes at Grovefield House Hotel @GrovefieldHotel

For this wedding at Grovefield House Hotel (@GrovefieldHotel) the bride and groom chose these enchanting sage green sashes for their chairs. The couple decided to add an extra special touch to the chairs for the Top Table, so we tied the additional white sashes in our Rose Knot with leaves style. The couple had chosen the colour of their sashes and the tying styles during a personal consultation. This consultation enabled them to see our complete range of over 220 colours of sashes and try out different options, including the different tying styles, before they made their final decisions.

Wonderful coral satin sashes and matching Swags and Tails at Easthampstead Park @easthampstead

For this wedding at Easthampstead Park (@easthampstead) the bride chose a wonderful coral satin for her decorations. The bride picked this particular shade from our extensive range of fabrics because it matched her colour scheme exactly. This vibrant coral was a perfect match for the bridesmaids’ dresses and the cravats worn by the groomsmen. We dressed the chairs with chair covers designed specifically for the chairs before tying the sashes in our Butterfly Bow style. The Top Table was decorated with Swags and Tails made from the same fabric as the chair sashes so everything matched perfectly.

Table runners to match the colour scheme of the event at Taplow House @Taplow_House, Cantley Hotel @cantleyhotel, Crowne Plaza Reading @cp_reading and The Mill House Hotel

If you are hosting an event and want table runners to co-ordinate with the theme we can dress the tables with table runners made from the same fabric as your chair sashes. We have over 220 colours to choose from.

We can make the table runners to fit different sized tables. They can be used on oval guest tables such as those at Cantley House Hotel (@cantleyhotel) or round tables like those at The Mill House Hotel.

We can also make custom length runners to fit long tables. These can be used at weddings to dress the Top Table, for example at Crowne Plaza, Reading (@cp_reading).  Alternatively they can be placed down the centre of long private dining tables as shown in the events at Taplow House Hotel (@Taplow_House) and The Mill House Hotel. We will liaise with you and your venue to determine the size of the table being used and then make the table runner exactly the correct size.

When we fit the table runners we ensure that they are perfectly straight down the length of the table, with an equal amount of drop at both ends.

All of our table runners are hand made by us and are properly edged to prevent fraying.  They are made from the same fabric and colour as the sashes and so coordinate perfectly.
