The gallery boasts a clean and easy to use design that enables you to easily search our archive. The gallery can be searched in many different ways:

  • By venue – from the complete list of venues we have worked with
  • By colour range – from the complete list of over 220 colours that we have available, grouped by 22 colour range pages
  • By fabric type – from of our list of 11 different fabric types
  • By tying style – from our extensive and expanding range of different tying styles
  • By category – choose from wedding, celebration or party
  • By tag – from the huge list of tags for more detailed searches

Our growing list of testimonials are also shown in the gallery, with links through to the event photos that they refer to.

We invite you to explore the gallery which will be continually updated with each new event that we dress.

You might ask why we have gone to the effort of putting together this complete set of photos. It is simply because we are keen to show that each and every one of our events gets the multi-award winning, top notch service and attention to detail that we have always been known for.

An elegant wedding at Cantley House Hotel @cantleyhotel

 Colours, Wedding  Comments Off on An elegant wedding at Cantley House Hotel @cantleyhotel
Dec 062016
 

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.

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.
