Its Ryan here from All Art Displays, I was the best man at my mates wedding on Saturday in the Sapphire room.
Just wanted to say thankyou to you both for making the day such a special day for the bride and groom.
The staff were very professional, the food was superb, the DJ was great and the general run of the night went extremely well.
Thankyou for being patient with us at the start of the ceremony as we were waiting on some late guests to arrive.
Thanks and again and take care.

Where better to find inspiration for your perfect wedding hairstyle than from some of the world's biggest celebrities?
Isla Fisher's Flowing Locks
Give your hair a gentle wave and sweep over one shoulder for a wedding hairdo that harks back to the heyday of Hollywood glamour. Pair the look with red lipstick and you'll look stunning and elegant when the big day rolls around.
Uma Thurman's Sleek Knot
Scoop your hair back into a sleek knot at the nape of the neck for a minimalist yet stunning look. This works best if you either don’t have a fringe of you're able to slick it back, and is ideally complemented by dangling earrings.
Marion Cotillard’s High Bun
If you're planning on wearing a veil, this could be your dream hairdo. A simple style with a high bun at the back of the head, this can work well for both straight and curled hair. Adorn the bun with jewels or flowers for a magic touch.
Jessica Hart’s Twisted Up Do
This is a fantastic look for brides who want to exude a chilled out and beautiful bohemian vibe. Create a small quiff at the front and twist and pin the rest of your hair at the back, allowing a few tendrils to float free.
Cheryl Cole’s Loose Braid
Both romantic and relaxed, the loose braid is a wonderful choice for any beach bride. Fasten with a simple band and let the ends curl up naturally for an effortlessly look.

Aside from the vows and the rings, many traditional wedding customs are now not included in modern weddings. Enjoy a magnificent, modern wedding by making sure you are up-to-date with a few of the new rules of contemporary weddings.
Costs Are Split Fairly
There was once a time when the bride's parents were expected to pay for the majority of a wedding, leaving only a few fixed fees for the groom's family. Now, it's far more likely that the couple will contribute the lion's share and will be helped by all parents equally if need be.
Let Them Not Eat Cake
If you're not a big fan of cake, you can say goodbye to the traditional tiered wedding cakes of old and choose some alternative treats for your wedding guests. Whether you'd prefer individual pecan tarts or a selection of delicious sorbets, all you need to remember is that the choice is yours.
You Don’t Have to Wear White
Possibly one of the best rules for modern brides, wearing white on your wedding day is no longer the done thing. Whether you choose red, crimson, electric blue or yellow, whichever colour you choose for your wedding dress will be unique because it’s your big day.
Mix Up Your Wedding Party
Know that you're spending your favourite moments with the people who are closest to you by abandoning the rules of the wedding party. You don't necessarily need a male best man or a flower girl to join you down the aisle – prioritise the importance of your relationships not old conventions.

The flowers you choose for your wedding day will mean a lot to you, so why not dry and preserve a few of the blooms from your bouquet, your groom's buttonhole or from your table displays so you can enjoy a lasting reminder of the big day? Watch this video for tips on how to preserve your wedding bouquet.
Preserving your wedding bouquet is as simple as hanging it upside down in a cool, dark space. Whatever you do, don’t cover up your bouquet as this will likely create mould around the blooms. Check on your bouquet every once in a while to make sure it’s drying to your liking.
Keep in mind that the dried bouquet will not look the same as it did on your wedding day, as the colours are likely to have diminished quite a lot and won’t be as vibrant. Your flowers might also shrink just a little, but will still maintain their basic shape.
Once you’re bouquet has been preserved it’s up to you how you choose to store it – whether as part of a few wedding keepsakes in a glass cabinet, or in its own individual glass terrarium.
If you aren’t confident in preserving your flowers yourself, you can book an appointment with a professional flower preserver to preserve your bouquet for you.Leave a comment »
Choosing the colour of your bridesmaids’ dresses is high up on the list of decisions you’ll need to make when planning your wedding. Lots of your attention will naturally be focused on the wedding dress you'll be walking down the aisle in, but be sure your bridesmaids get a chance to shine (not too much!) by choosing the right dress colours.
The trick to making sure your bridesmaids are happy on your big day is to choose dresses that are universally flattering. This means saying no to eye-catching but ultimately difficult shades, such a lime green or neon pink. Avoid colours and patterns that can leave people looking washed out, focusing on bold, block colours instead.
Dark shades, such as navy, deep purple and even black, are great for suiting a wide variety of skin tones and are likely to please many of your bridesmaids. Other great choices are crimson, fuchsia and teal. Blue is often an excellent option, as it tends to suit different complexions.
Of course, you'll want your colour choice to complement your wedding theme and venue, but just remember that while pale or pastel flowers and décor can look beautiful, they may not translate well to your dresses. If you're hoping for understated style, try silver tones, perfect for both traditional and modern weddings.Leave a comment »
Do you yearn for old-fashioned romance? Is your idea of the perfect party one that’s packed with up to date tunes and designs? These are the kinds of questions you should be asking yourself when you start planning your wedding. Work a vintage vibe or enjoy a magnificently modern wedding, the choice is yours.
Why Choose Vintage Styles
When done well, vintage weddings will leave you feeling as though you’re in your own fairytale. There’s nothing like a touch of traditional glamour to make your wedding feel like something out of a storybook. Think whites and creams, roses and big blooms, lacy dresses and gorgeous black tie suits. For real vintage chic, keep your music traditional, your wedding cake tiered and your setting softly lit.
Why Pick Modern Inspirations
If you’re tired of the vintage theme, why not consider throwing a modern wedding? The beauty of modern weddings is that the theme is so versatile it can include just about any element, as long as it doesn’t have a shabby or antique edge. Think geometric designs, bold colours, sophisticated table centrepieces and whatever kind of entertainment you fancy – whether it’s a rock band or DJ.

Every bride wants to look and feel like royalty on their wedding day. Where better to find inspiration for your ideal wedding dress than by checking out the work of these iconic wedding dress designers.
A fashion protégé, Monique Lhuillier’s mother inspired her to begin designing wedding dresses at the tender age of 11. Skip forward a number of years and the designer is now creating high-end wedding gowns beloved by brides all over the world, most notably celebrity brides.

Regardless of whether you decide to have a winter or a spring wedding, all wedding ceremonies and receptions are beautiful in their own right. But to be on the safe side, if you are thinking of having a winter wedding, make sure your mind isn’t plagued by the following winter wedding myths.
Winter Brides Have Limited Dress Choices
The notion that winter brides can’t possibly wear a strapless gown is completely false. Come rain, hail, snow or sunshine, it’s your wedding day so you should wear whichever style you choose. If you are worried about being chilly, choose an indoor venue or hire extra outdoor heating to keep your reception area warm.
You Won’t Be Able To Get The Flowers You Want
While there may be a trace of truth to this statement, it only applies to traditional wedding bouquet flowers such as roses, calla lilies, sweet peas and peonies. If these flowers aren’t on your favourites list then winter shouldn’t be a problem. Popular winter wedding flowers include tulips, hydrangeas, poppies and lisianthus.
Winter Wedding Colours Are Quite Dull
On the contrary, there are hundreds of colours to choose from when planning a winter wedding. Cherry red, silver, dark chocolate, midnight blue, crimson, ivory… whether you are after a definitive dark winter colour palette or something more upbeat, there is a colour to suit every wedding style.
You Won’t Be Able To Have An Outdoor Wedding
With the right wedding venue you will! Wedding reception venues have become so flexible; the weather on your wedding day is now an afterthought. Make sure you choose a wedding venue that offers both indoor and outdoor function areas, and has back-up facilities in case the weather turns.
