Anyone for a BIG FAT GREEK wedding?

Wedding destination Amorgos

Have you ever dreamt of getting married in Greece or France, Mamma Mia style?  If so we have it covered with destination planners  Arbre and Riviere. They are a married couple who  are experienced at planning and organising weddings away from home, making that dream of a BIG Fat Greek Wedding a reality! (see the film link there!)

Planning a wedding in another country does push up the stakes on their organisational skills but Arbre and Riviere run a tight ship and will control budgeting, contracts, travel as well as the whole wedding weekend.

They run flexible packages depending on how much you may want to do yourself and whether you may or may not have connections with the destination (like an Uncle with a Chateaux! )

So excited to welcome Wild Artichokes the catering and food business with Chef extraordinaire at the helm Jane Baxter.

Wild Artichokes tend to favour the dramatic platter and sharing food which is the perfect foil to mix your guests up. Sam and Jane are not only fantastic at delivering the goods  but their humour always shines through and they are amazing at creating memorable feasts with lavish table displays of local produce.

A big welcombe to Guilded Fern who produce georgeous confetti, bath salts and wild flower seeds to mention a few of their products for the wedding favour business. Her products are all natural and mostly home made. Her edible goodies are vegan friendly and beautifuly presented and her favours include confetti, wildflower seeds ,bath salts,candles and a lot more,so worth checking out her site! Guilded Fern on Green Union.

Another Devon based business is jewellery designer Helen Butler who works from her studio overlooking the beach with the shrill of seagulls and the tap tap of a hammer. Helen uses her inspiration for designs from her surroundings and works with silver, semi precious stones and silk, she creates shells, starfish and feathers into  perfectly priced presents for bridesmaids or wedding guests.

At Honey Stone Hair based in Gloucestershire, Annie really does put the artist into hair styling, creating a relaxed experience from the start.  "From the moment the bride wakes up, those precious hours before her big moment do need to be serene and memorable" which means the bride will already feel safe and confident in the sylists hands and they are working together to create a visual that not only enhances the brides personality but will hold till your head hits the pillow.
