Working with you to create something unique and personal…
Ok so it’s been while since I last blogged, but things have been rather hectic behind the scenes… If you don’t know already, I have expanded my stock massively over the past couple of months, which means I can now offer a venue dressing service!
This is because I have been lucky enough to purchase the gorgeous stock that previously belonged to Chris Grattan from Beautifully Vintage. Chris is a very talented and well respected lady, who has worked in the events industry for over a decade. I first met Chris when I worked at The Shireburn Arms as Wedding & Events Co-Ordinator, and I have admired her work ever since – needless to say she dressed my own Wedding too! Chris and I share the same love for Vintage treasures, and she has managed to collect the most amazing things from all over the place! Sadly Chris has now retired, and I am sure she will very much be missed, but I am so grateful of this amazing opportunity to follow in her footsteps, and I am so excited to get started!
If you are planning your Wedding or a special event, and are looking for something a little bit different to what is on the market at the moment, then please get in touch! I will create something beautiful and unique, and you will be sure to get a personal service, dealing only with me throughout the process. We can discuss what it is you are looking for and talk through what I have to offer. We can incorporate parts of life that are special to you, such as dance, movies, or travel, or I can also theme the occasion, creating a enchanted woodland, mad hatters tea party, rustic country theme, or perhaps the roaring 1920’s?
It has been difficult pricing up a package because of the amount of stock I have and the amount of stock which I will provide on the day. I wanted to create a package which is value for money and as uncomplicated as possible, so I have a set price based on numbers of up to 100 Guests. If you are having a smaller occasion then please be assured that you will get as much value for money as the larger events. For much smaller events of -30 then please contact me and we can negotiate a package price for you. And likewise, I can cater for numbers higher than 100, but this would also need to be negotiated.
So…for a wedding or event for upto 100 people, I would provide – guest table centrepieces (bespoke, each one slightly different to the next, and packed with beautiful treasures to keep your guests interested), top table, gift table, and cake table décor, optional postbox, optional table numbers, optional cake stand, optional table plan prop, finishing touches such as bunting or hand embroidered vintage table cloths if required, and I can provide lanterns and pew end decor if you are getting married at the same venue as the reception. Basically, we talk about what look you are going for and how many people it will be for, and then we work out which of my stock will work best with the theme. I can also help you work out how you can save your pennies by working smart with wedding décor. I have various postbox, cake stand and table plan prop options, you might want them, you might not – I simply try to offer a package which is value for money and as simple to understand as possible! So this is priced at £675.00, and a damages deposit of £50 is also payable before the event, which will be refunded once everything has been collected back and checked over.
I am also offering an upgrade option, which allows you to include a gorgeous true vintage English Bone China trio per Guest, (available in a choice of colours!), for just £75 extra! A massive saving for what I charge to hire separately, and not only does it make a good talking point, and creates a quirky vintage edge, but it really does bring a room together beautifully.
Anyway, that’s enough from me, but please do spread the word! In the meantime, why not look at Beautifully Vintage’s Facebook page and see the style of Weddings and Events that I will can now create – and please follow me on Facebook and Instagram if you don’t already.
