Since Christmas we have been inundated with new wedding enquiries and no doubt there will be a few more romantic Valentines proposals being made today… How exciting!!
We love chatting all things weddings, so for those recently engaged HUGE congratulations and we can’t wait to assist you with the fun bit… planning your ‘Big Day’.
Choosing a suitable venue is the first step and attending wedding showcases at your favourite venues is a great starting point. Our sales team have had the pleasure of attending a number of showcases at venues that recommend our services already this year. We always enjoy attending these, as it is the perfect opportunity to meet lots of new excited couples face to face, discuss their individual requirements and for them to see the function rooms set up with our services. It really helps to visualise the space and get a feel of what it will look like on the day itself.
Below is a summary of a few wedding showcases we have already exhibited at this year:
On Sunday 14th January, Antonetta met many newly engaged couples at the 5 star Dorchester owned venue Coworth Park. Having previously worked at Coworth Park herself, Antonetta has first-hand experience of what services enhance the contemporary events space in the Oval and Garden rooms. Check out our Coworth Park ‘Venue of the Month’ blog for more detail on which of our services work seamlessly at such an iconic venue.
Nina attended The Elvetham’s first wedding showcase of the year on Sunday 14th January, meeting over 30 newly engaged couples! The Morning Room is the main space for the evening receptions, and we were lucky enough to set up our most popular services at the venue including a discotheque, uplighters, LOVE letters and our extremely popular magic mirror photo booth, which saw lots of guests posing for a picture!
The ever-popular Great Fosters wedding showcase was held on Sunday 21st January. We are very fortunate enough to be the exclusive supplier for all discotheques that take place at Great Fosters. It was here that Damian met many new couples and had the opportunity to discuss the wide variety of services that we can offer them on their special day, to enhance the stunning features of this historic venue. Fairy lights in the Barn and uplighters in the Orangery are very popular services booked, alongside entertainment that add that elegant finishing touch.
Great Fosters is a venue that will always be held very close to one of our Directors Andy, as this was the venue that he chose for this wedding last August. He knows this venue like the back of his hand and is the perfect person to ask for advice on how to make your day a truly memorable one.
Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa
Rachael and Nina also attended Pennyhill Park’s Wedding Showcase on Sunday 28th January, meeting with many new couples who were at different stages in their wedding planning, from recently engaged and looking for a venue, to those coming back for another look and wanting to book the finishing touches for their big day…
With many rooms available for the evening reception at Pennyhill Park, we showcased a variety of services in the Balmoral Suite - the venues largest event space. We discovered that many couples were looking to get married in December – and why not?! Pennyhill Park, is a perfect venue for a winter wedding! Our stunning fairylight canopy, impressive white LED dancefloor, white DJ booth and accompanying white starcloth backdrop, were all set up to showcase how you can create that extra bit of sparkle, making for a magical wintery feel!
We would highly recommend attending a wedding showcase at your chosen venue, it is the perfect opportunity to see how the venue can be set up for your big day. It is also a great way to meet the venues recommended suppliers and chat through the various options available to you, ensuring you get the most from your day, with as little stress as possible.
If you have missed a recent showcase at your chosen venue then do not fear, our sales team can certainly advise and inspire you, utilising comprehensive photo galleries for venues we are recommended by, along with bespoke sales material that we can send to you.
It is also worth keeping an eye on our social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for which showcase we will be at next… We are very excited to be at The Elvetham on Sunday 25th February for their second showcase of the year… we look forward to meeting lots more lovely couples then!
