Wedding photographer review

We felt very relaxed with having Joss part of our day and felt very comfortable with him taking our photos. We are absolutely in love with the images and feel that Joss has captured the day so well.

We would highly recommend Joss, he was just amazing from our first meeting we had with him. He genuinely felt like a friend and it was great having him at our wedding. Joss was so organised from when we first booked with him and throughout. He has given us the most amazing photos to treasure for years to come.

Venue name + review

The Venue Bowers Mill

We got married at the Venue – Bowers Mill. This was the only venue we looked round, we walked in and instantly fell in love with it. The venue was so different with its industrial feel and very relaxed vibe and we just knew straight away it was the right place for us to get married. We would definitely recommend this venue, everything was perfect and the staff were amazing. We had eaten here on a few occassions before our wedding day and we knew the food was going to be fantastic which it was.

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

I visited Off The Peg Bridal a couple of times, the first time I didn’t quite find the right one but on the second visit I found my dress. All I can say about that is that I tried it on and just instantly knew that I loved it and still felt like me.

Florist name + review

The Flower Box Meltham

I walk regularly past our local florist and so one day just popped in and spoke to the florist about our wedding. I explained what I like/don’t like but then said that I would leave it up to her to put together what she thinks (as she’s the expert, not us). Our florist was amazing and I couldn’t have been happier with the flowers. They felt elegant and looked beautiful and got lots of complements.

Cake maker name + review

Well Vicky and her family have an obsession with M&S Colin the Caterpillar cakes (who wouldn’t), James has also got on board with the love of them. So we just thought, why not.. a giant Colin and Connie beat a fruit cake anyday. We had loads of complements on the cake and we’re so pleased we went for them, it was another talking point.

Any crafty projects or homemade styling touches?

We bought charity badges for Dementia UK for all our guests in lieu of favours. This felt a special touch to both of us due to personal circumstances. We used place names for our tables that were special places to us, we put a photo of us at the place on the table and either a funny story or why that place was special to us.

Wedding entertainment

We felt that our venue cried out for a band due to the size of the space there. We had ‘Southwest Band‘ who were amazing! Again, like we’d said to other suppliers we left it in their very capable hands of what to decide to play as they’re the experts after all. They were absolutely incredible and the dancefloor was full all night.
