It's that time of the year to produce our new sample albums, here is a new design which we love, especially the new rounded corners. We are also ordering one of Graphi Studio's new art box, as shown below.
We have decided to go for a shiny crystal image on the cover with black leather spine and back. Each image file is a double page spread so the spine is down the centre. we just can't wait to recieve the finished product!
For their Bride & Grooms Wasing Park host an extravagant tasting evening/day to allow them to ensure they are perfectly happy with food & wine choices, the event is always very busy and a great opportunity to talk with suppliers, gallaping gourmet and other Bride & Grooms. This tasting was made extra special by the arrival of snow.. and lot's of it! The grounds look stunning covered in snow and is a great chance to see the venue in a different light.
Helen and Crispin choose one of the hottest days of the year to marry on August 18th. They both choose to get ready at Stoke Park and I don't blame them to be honest, the bedrooms are gorgeous!
The girls spent all morning pampering and having their hair and make up done, while the boys enjoyed a spot of lunch before heading over to the on-site church on pogo sticks!
Helen's stunning gown was designed by Suzanne Neville know for her amazing corsets, she teamed her dress with a pair of gorgeous Christian louboutins. The bridesmaids wore stunning dusky pink floaty dresses and carried posies of beautiful white roses to match Helens.
Alex & Victoria hosted their wedding at the Wonderful Wasing Park where the grounds have been transformed by rich, warm tones brought about by the change in season. The rest of the wedding will be shown in a couple of weeks....
Cherubs Floral Design completely transformed the James suite at Warbrook House in Berkshire into an Autumnal scene for both the civil ceremony and wedding breakfast. Hannah & Dean were absolutely speechless when they saw what had been done and the effect was truly magical from plump pumpkins to crispy orange leaves...lovely!
Jeannine and Graham were married at the wonderful Rivervale Barn, Rivervale Barn is a contemporary green oak wedding barn on the banks of the River Blackwater in Yateley, Hampshire and is a fantastic setting for a relaxed wedding.
Jeannine and her bridesmaids had hair and make up by the talented Charlotte Elizabeth. Jeannine choose a stunning gold gown and her bridesmaids matched in subtle metallics. Graham and his best men and ushers wore brown and cream. Stunning floral displays were provided by the amazing Cherubs Floral design.
Jeannine is a bit of a cake fiend and choose a gorgeous 5 teri chocolate extravaganza supplied by Margaret Burridge of Celebration Cakes!
Guests were entertained during evening by the amazing snapacab photobooth!
Lesley was pampered at her mothers beautiful home in Old Basing (They even have a small lake in the garden with their own ducks and geese! So cool!!!) Make up was provided by Charlotte from Charlotte elizabeth, our all time favourite hair and make up artist!
After Jamie's recent wedding and Lynseys in 2010 we learnt a few important lessons, picking your wedding suppliers for such a huge event like your wedding can be hard, really hard. When faced with the decisions ourselves we really struggled. Being in the industry we didn't want run-of-the-mill details but something to really amaze our guests.
We used such talented suppliers and were lucky with all our choices but wanted to just share a little bit of insider knowledge when it comes to picking your chosen florist. There are a lot of florists out there and some really good ones at that, however Marc, James and the rest of the large team at Cherubs Floral Design really impressed us with their creativity and attention to detail.
Our main aim was the WOW factor and after looking through some of the images below we think you'll agree we well and truly achieved it, none of which would have been possible without the vision of cherubs. The team helped us out with everything from colour themes to entertainment ideas,along with all aspects of the floral planning Cherubs assisted us with the cake base display, bouquet charms, oversized balloons, table names and bespoke chair supply along with many other items.
We just want to thank them for all their hard work and share with you a little taster of Jamie's recent wedding day!
P.S How gorgeous os the latest member to join the Thompson family!
Special thanks to our photography friends Gary, sue, stu and Neil for some of the amazing images captured on the day
