USEFUL LINKS & INFORMATION

A LIST OF SOME OF THE WEDDING SERVICE PROVIDERS RECOMMENDED OR KNOWN BY ME

Useful Information

Over the years I have collected a number of contacts within the wedding industry & have decided that it’d perhaps be a good idea to share them with you.  I will keep adding to the page every now and then when I collect new providers.  The list isn’t by any stretch exhaustive, but it is compiled of wedding providers from the United Kingdom and further afield and all of them have contributed to weddings I have captured, so I have seen their work or product with my own eyes & feel they offer a level of service you would expect at your special day.  I have broken them all down into their respective categories to make life a little easier.

Choosing your wedding suppliers isn’t an easy take and the choice and quality vary immensely, so I have only included those suppliers where my clients have recommended them too.  If you do use any of them as a result of seeing them listed here, please tell them where you found them as we all rely on word of mouth for our business success.

There are more than 80 lesser rooms and numerous halls, corridors, bathrooms and service areas. The lead roof extends to three quarters of an acre, restoration and rebuilding of which began in 1983 and took nearly ten years to complete.
