Fantastic suppliers for your wedding day
So congratulations on getting engaged!
You’ve selected your venue, you have paid your deposit you’ve picked your photographer (awkward - hopefully me!) and you have reserved your date! Now you are probably wondering what other suppliers you also need on your day to make it as special as possible, as much fun as possible, as unique as possible – whatever your goal is. So to try and help I have compiled a list of other suppliers I have worked with - other suppliers I know will do an equally fantastic job for you.
Now for those of you that are a cynical bunch! There is no kickback for me, I don’t receive any monetary benefit in recommending these wonderful vendors – I am simply very impressed with them and would recommended them to my closest Friends and Family.
I sincerely hope you find this useful as I recognize there are so many suppliers out there to chose from. So take a read through and get in contact with them directly to have a discussion on price and availability.
Wedding Dresses: Story of my dress
Story of My Dress began as 20 vintage wedding dresses bought from a theatre company (and a head full of ideas) and turned into a beautiful and cosy Kent bridal boutique, our own collection of modern bridal designs, and two incredible stocked designers too.
From start to completion, your dress is treated with the utmost care – whether it’s one of our vintage pieces being restored, or whether we’re making it from scratch. Alongside Gill we also offer in-house embroidery by the incredible Jenny King, with artwork by our super talented artist Alannah, meaning we can make you a personalised wedding dress with heartfelt, special touches. A modern wedding dress deserves a relaxed and friendly wedding dress shopping experience, which is what we’re so proud to offer at Story Of My Dress Bridal.
All of our stunning dresses and accessories offer our brides a one-of-a-kind, stylish alternative to the traditional, in a friendly one-on-one setting. Nothing about you is traditional, so nothing about us is either – we can’t wait to meet you!
Acoustic Soloist: Ian Ingles Music:
Ian has been a working musician for the past 25 years, playing a wide variety of material (Originals and cover versions) and performing at many different venues. Unlike some musicians Ian is a full time musician meaning he can focus all his energy into his clients ensuring they not only have beautiful music on their wedding day but complemented by a fantastic service. His services allow him to offer a chilled 'background music' set or alternatively adapt to play an upbeat more lively set incorporating a loop pedal (Think Ed Sheeran/Newton Faulkner) giving a fuller sound with more energy.
Eliza Rose – Artisan Floral Design
I am a freelance florist nestled in the Kent countryside. After studying floristry at Hadlow College I have continued to gain knowledge working within a Florist shop and studying at London Flower School, but now, creating and making your wedding day visions come to life is my absolute passion, from choosing colour palettes to creating that show stopper hand tied bouquet. We create bespoke flowers personal to you. I use the English hedgerow as my inspiration for most of my wild and natural designs
Services include Buttonholes, venue styling, bouquets, flower crowns and natural confetti .
