Being lucky enough to have worked in the wedding industry for years means that we’ve been given the opportunity to come across some pretty amazing wedding vendors, which can add something spectacular to your wedding day.
So with this in mind, today’s post is dedicated to sharing just a few of the wedding vendors that we recommend. Whether you’re keen to find a spectacular wedding venue, or are struggling to find a florist, you’re in luck!
Hair and beauty: Honey Hair & Beauty
In case you didn’t know, Margaret, part of the Honey Hair & Beauty team, happens to be my wife, so while it might I’m biased, I’ve worked with the Honey Hair & Beauty team across a range of photo shoots and weddings and can definitely testify to their amazing talent!

Flowers: John Paul Florist
I’ve worked with John Paul professionally over the years and I’ve always been a massive fan of his work. His ability to create stunning floral creations never fails to impress me so it isn’t surprising that his work is in high demand for weddings across the country. John Paul has a fantastic eye for detail, working to an extremely high standard of finish, which has unsurprisingly lead to him being commissioned to design pieces for high profile events, royalty, visiting heads of state as well as a host of celebrity clients.

Cake: Cakes by Miriam
A visual focal point of your wedding reception, the wedding cake may have taken several forms over the years, but its significance still remains. Having created my own wedding cake, I personally can’t recommend the talents of Miriam from Cakes by Miriam enough. Get more information here.
Menswear: The Black Tie Showroom
In recent years, grooms have been taking their wedding day attire much more seriously, which has led to a massive expansion in the range of suits available. Gone are the days of limited options, with endless cuts, colours and styles now available. And one place which is easily meeting this demand is The Black Tie Showroom. Get more information here.
Stationery: The White Letter Wedding Stationery
Another wedding vendor that we choose for our own wedding is The White Letter Wedding Stationery. The company specialises in matching stunning contemporary design with original use of type to create fresh, eye-catching stationery. Bespoke finishes such as foil keeps invites distinctly modern.
