Despite a very early start, today was an absolute corker of a day! I was delighted to have been invited to attend the wedding showcase at the stunning Gildings Barn (http://www.gildingsbarns.co.uk/) today, as the recommended celebrant at this venue.
It was wonderful to chat to prospective couples for 2018 and indeed 2019, and I look forward to creating beautifully bespoke ceremonies for each of them! I was able to talk through all of the lovely ways in which a celebrant-led ceremony can be personalised, and about how (with my 25 years experience in the wedding business) I can offer guidance during this exciting journey of theirs.
Gildings is such a flexible venue, it has a wonderful main barn, a courtyard which leads to an adjacent barn, a field for outdoor weddings or indeed marquees, and a multitude of little spaces that can be used for bars, photo booths, or displays of photos and other personal touches. I thoroughly enjoy working with this family run venue, and all of the fabulous couples that book here.
Today also brought together all of the preferred suppliers for this venue and it was great to build on these relationships, and support one another. The 'A-Team' today were:
Knight Ceremonies (www.KnightCeremonies.co.uk)
The Melody Gal (www.themelodygal.com)
The Oak and the Owl (www.theoakandtheowl.co.uk)
Anise Catering (www.anisecatering.com)
Hetty's Cake House (www.hettyscakehouse.co.uk)
Airview Solutions - drone/aerial photography & video (www.airview.solutions)
Browns Kitchen (www.browns-kitchen.co.uk)
A great day, and a very successful one at that with 4 bookings and 2 enquiries on dates for 2019!
