Long time no speak. Two whole months in fact, have you missed us?
So, Christmas seems like a distant memory, we all survived January and today the sun is finally shining down on us.
2014 landed and we hit the ground running, we took on four new couples who have enlisted our services for their dream weddings this year. The first being on March 28th at The Village Hotel Bromborough. Everyone seems raring to go after the holidays.
We were also asked to dress the beautiful Mere Brook House in Thornton Hough on February 1st.
Who stole 2013?
WOW, December already.
I trust that you are all well and gearing up nicely for the festivities ahead.
We have had a busy couple of weeks here at the showroom which began with the amazing task of decorating a 30ft Christmas Tree at the entrance of the "UK's Number 1 Tourist Attraction." Chester Zoo.
2000 Baubles later, the big switch on took place on Friday 22nd November and the press photographs were amazing.
Phew! What a hectic few months we have had since my last post.
We have wound down the final summer flurry of Weddings at Chester Zoo's beautiful venue Oakfield Manor, we now look forward to our twinkling Winter Weddings that begin with the Wedding of Joanne Burrows and Mark Lewis, Sat 21st December at The Leverhulme Hotel in picturesque Port Sunlight.
We have successfully seen the launch of our Craft Workshops with the first one taking place on Wednesday 6th November in our Craft Room.
Well, what a busy few weeks we've had!
