Joining us on 23 June is Sarah Mason, a local photographer who sees herself as the storyteller of your day; creating each chapter in pictures. In Sarah’s words – “I am here to capture those details big and small, and to make sure your day is documented how you remember it, and a little bit more…”. We have worked with Sarah before so totally agree; she is very special and so easy to work with, ‘Sarah manages to evoke such a sense of feeling in her work.  She creates photos with soul.’

In our beautiful garden on Sunday 23 June there will be two local outside caterers setting up for you to buy and sample their offerings. One is ‘Go The Whole Hog’ who I really have to say make the most delicious pork sandwiches I have ever eaten. Mandy buys her pork from local butcher Stephen Maskill, slow roasts it in the most amazing juices and accompanies it with her special homemade stuffing, home cooked apple sauce and the crispiest of crackling with the juiciest of gravy….delicious!

The other is the ‘The Milk Bar’ who provide milkshakes for lots of events as an alternative for guests at wedding that don’t drink … a hit with the young of course! You will be able to buy smaller versions of a handful of their best sellers including Dime Bar, Aero Mint and Skittles milkshakes! For your wedding you can chose the menu so come along and discuss your requirements with them.

So there you have it; a snippet of what’s in store for our fourth ‘I DO’ Exhibition which launches on Sunday 23 June at 12pm and continues until 28 July but remember … if you want to meet Sarah, Julia, Sue, Jane and Helen to discuss your requirements then they will only be at the launch on the 23 June so get there early and enjoy!

  1. The Willow Garden made the bouquet for our elopement wedding last year & they were wonderful. They completely grasped what I wanted even though I was pretty vague and I was thrilled to bits with my flowers. I highly recommend them.
