“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too” Paulo Coelho

We can tailor make your wedding to suit your individual style, needs and budget.

Lets think simple and economical – how about a High Tea with decadent cakes, a garden ceremony and a chocolate bar to end your perfect day.

Pump up the budget and have a lunch with champagne, canapés and a string quartet.

Or go all out, dancing the night away with a full on band, 3-course meal, linen & crystal.
