Sophie & Phil – Hexham Winter Gardens

Couple: Sophie & Phil
Date: 4th July 2015

Sophie & Phil married at Hexham Winter Gardens which is a totally DIY venue. They hired vintage milk jugs for flowers from me and mis-matched dinner plates for each guest. Sophie hired sequin table runners that added glamour to the long tables.

I also helped with running the days events as an on the day coordinator. I arrived on site early in the morning to ensure everything was set up on time. I liaised with suppliers and acted as a point of reference for any questions so that the bride and groom could relax and enjoy their day.

For our wedding, we wanted a vintage look – finding Karen’s website and using her collection of mismatched vintage dinner plates and cups and saucers was amazing! The crockery looked so beautiful in our venue and Karen’s selection is brilliant. Hiring Karen to co-ordinate things on the day was the best thing we could have done! Hiring a hall and basically DIYing everything ourselves seemed a daunting task, so finding someone as reliable and talented as Karen was just perfect. Having a meeting prior to the day, as well as email contact in the run-up to the big day, was really reassuring for us. Using her wealth of knowledge and expertise, Karen was able to help us plan the finer details of our day – Karen really helped us go through the day in detail and ensured nothing was missed! Karen’s on the day service was also absolutely fantastic – from being at the venue early to take deliveries and coordinate suppliers to announcing us into the room as ‘bride and groom’ (not to mention ensuring our glasses were always topped up!) there was nothing Karen wasn’t able to do! She really went the extra mile for us; we have had lots of compliments on how well they day went – we definitely owe this to Karen! We would definitely recommend Karen’s services to other brides and grooms, and just want to say, thank you so much! Sophie and Phil x
