I have met some incredible people working in this industry and will always put forward a range of suppliers that I trust and respect that suit each of my clients’ specific needs. I put them forward with no agenda other than knowing they will deliver the very best for my clients.

It is important to me that our industry continues to grow with integrity and I hope that in some small way the list below will help it to do just that.

Here is a small, valuable selection of talented and like minded businesses that I always love to work with (please note that this list is alway evolving!):

Bridal Boutique

Ellie Sanderson Bridal Boutique: With a boutique in Beaconsfield and Oxford, Ellie and her girls deliver a service so special it is hardly surprising they have won Best Bridal retailer 2011 & 2012 by the Wedding Ideas Magazine and The Wedding Industry Awards. Prepare to feel utterly spoilt! www.elliesanderson.co.uk

Photographers

Kate Hopewell-Smith Photography: Kates passion and dedication for her craft is infectious. She is an insanely talented photographer and extremely gorgeous person. Her photography is a beautiful mix of storytelling and art. She is extremely busy so get in touch for a chat as soon as you can! www.katehopewellsmith.com

David Bostock, The Bridal Photographer: David’s approach is photojournalistic with a fashion twist, enabling him to produce beautiful signature images. Having a unique insight into the world of weddings through his very stylish wife Ellie Sanderson, David has a powerful combination of sensitivity, knowledge and drive. No wonder his work is award winning. www.thebridalphotographer.co.uk

Tarah Connan Photography: The lovely Tarah is enormously talented and becoming increasingly more difficult to book due to her growing reputation. She is wonderful to work with and specialises in capturing candid moments, creating beautiful, timeless and relaxed photos of your special day. Snap her up now if you can! www.tarahcoonan.com

Florists

Fabulous Flowers: With 2 gorgeous shops in Oxford and Abingdon, the boys at Fabulous Flowers are just that. With Master Florist status and recommended by Tatler Magazine as well as the infamous Sarah Hayward, Matthew and Gary work hard to create spectacular floral creations that are truly personal and unique for every client. www.fabulousflowers.biz

Emma Walker Flowers: Now I know that I am biased as Emma created the beautiful flowers for my own wedding and they were simply gorgeous but Emma has an amazing eye for attention to detail. Her style is effortlessly elegant, classic and timeless – you would be a very lucky bride to have her Emma looking after you! www.emmawalkerflowers.co.uk

Wedding Planner

Bride & Glory: Anna from Bride & Glory is a good friend and trusted colleague. You may think it strange that I list another Wedding Planner in my LG Book but I think it is important that my clients feel that they have chosen the right planner for them and if I am not suitable I want to make sure that our industry is being represented by the most talented and trustworthy of people. www.brideandglory.com

Affectionally known as ‘Chatty Joyce’ she will bring a smile to your face, making you feel relaxed and confident that you are looking radiant and gorgeous on your special day.
