The Dairy are really going to town with a wonderful and imaginative approach for their wedding showcase event: as recommended suppliers we've all been asked to promote our services in an exciting dynamic new way. This means very few trestle tables, or the overly static approach of most wedding open days, and I and the other exhibitors have been asked to inspire, interact, create and demonstrate our talents in a completely fresh way, whilst showcasing the Dairy's wonderful possibilities for couples planning their special day.

I've invested a lot of my time in coming up with my new retro display stand that is totally different to anything I use to exhibit elsewhere ; it certainly involves a lot more glitz and is a real wow factor! To see the results of my own and the other exhibitors' presentations, make sure you attend the event on Sunday 13th March 2016. I'm really looking forward to attending this showcase event, this is only the second time the Dairy has held their 'Wedding Inspiration' day. I understand the show will be even bigger and better than the last one (this takes some doing), this is definitely the grandest wedding event in Buckinghamshire this spring!

Everything you need to plan your perfect wedding day
Join us for our first Wedding Inspiration day, an exclusive wedding event showcasing over thirty of the industry's finest local and regional suppliers and wedding experts, held in the beautiful setting of the Dairy Lakeside Pavilion, on the Waddesdon Manor Estate.
The day is designed to eliminate the stresses that organizing a wedding can bring, adding a unique touch of Waddesdon luxury and a lot of fun to your wedding planning experience, making it a must for anyone looking to make their dream wedding a reality, whether at Waddesdon, elsewhere in Buckinghamshire or further afield.

What to expect
On arrival you will be greeted with a very warm welcome from our expert wedding team and a complimentary cocktail or glass of prosecco.  We’ve plenty in store with a hand-picked line up, including luxury designers, photographers, entertainers, gastronomes, professional wedding planners and a number of interactive areas and creative workshops for both the bride and groom.

Visitors are also invited to explore the Waddesdon Estate’s enchanting choice of wedding venues, created for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the 19th century, including the (until now) hidden Secret Garden for intimate ceremonies.

All couples will receive an exclusive Wedding Inspiration day goodie bag and a Wedding Inspiration day passport.  Get the passport stamped at each designated area to be in with a chance of winning a magnum of Waddesdon Champagne.

I hope to see you at the Dairy's 'Wedding Inspiration at Waddesdon' event on the 13th march. If you are planning your wedding for 2016/17,  this show is definitely one not to miss!  Not only is it one of the most 'wow' venues in England, the way this event is being presented is pretty amazing too! On the day you'll also be able to see my new Dairy display album, plus 4-5 other new display albums. Some of the page designs for my new Dairy album can be seen below, these were all captured over the past two years. Over the past 16 years I've attended over 180 weddings amazing lakeside venue.

Enjoy your week!


As I'm writing this blog it's gorgeous blue skies outside, long may it continue into 2016! Once again it's time for me to exhibit my portfolio at this years wedding fairs, these are probably some of the very best local shows to attend if you're planning your special day for 2016/17. All of the shows are held inside these beautiful historic venues, admission is free of charge. You'll get the chance to meet about 20-35 local suppliers at each event, I'll be showcasing my work too.
