Below are friends of mine who I have either worked with on projects, or used on our wedding day. We can tell you first hand, the selection below are trustworthy wedding suppliers, who offer a very bespoke service to make sure you have the absolute best wedding day.
Planning a wedding can be a challenging time, as there is so much to consider! Where to have it, who to take your stunning photographs, who to make your delicious wedding cake, sourcing a suitable stylist, not forgetting where to buy the dress!
For that reason, I have compiled a list of trusted suppliers I have worked with across Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire and Wiltshire.
If you have any questions about anything wedding related, please feel free to get in touch. I would love to help however I can!
