Henrietta & Craig – DIY Spring Barn Wedding

   Henrietta married Craig in a sweet ceremony in Gloucestershire, on Friday 17th April 2015.

Following the ceremony, the bride and groom, and their guests, arrived at Prior’s Court Barn in Brockworth, to continue celebrations on into the afternoon and evening. 

Henrietta and Craig took their theme to the extreme, creating a DIY wedding like no other. Not only did the bride and groom along with their team of hands-on-helpers, ushers and bridesmaids, decorate the barn from top to bottom with home made, hand made decorations, including everything from paper mâché hot air balloons, to hessian table runners; this incredibly talented bride even baked her own wedding cake, full dessert table of scones, tarts and brownies, and provided all the canapés on the day, whilst the groom provided guests with home made bottles of red wine ready on the tables for dinner. 

For dinner, guests were provided with chef hats and aprons, and one designsted person per table was given fun instructions to carve and serve the delicious roast lamb to those sat around them. 

Their guests didn’t exactly escape the DIY theme either, not only was the wedding breakfast a hands on celebration of food, fun and laughter, they were also invited to bring an array of sweet and savoury home baked delights to be judged in the wedding’s very own bake off competition that evening, and later on all the home cooked offerings were used for the evening buffet. The attendees were also invited to send back their best-kept-secret family recipes with their RSVPs which the happy couple had made into personalised cookbooks for the winners on the night. 

Oh So Perfect were delighted and honoured to provide on the day coordination for this very hands-on, elegant affair. Congratulations Henrietta and Craig!

“Samantha,

I want to say THANK YOU for all of your help and work you did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have done it without you! The thought of planning a wedding overseas was always daunting, and for the past year you have perfectly guided us. Through expert recommendations (I couldn’t have asked for a better or more talented group of vendors), keeping us organized and on track, and coordinating every last detail on the day – you helped ease so much of the burden and stress. The church and the venue all looked stunning, and it was everything I had hoped for and more! You were such a delight to work with!”

Laura and Rob – Testimonial

Picnic hamper and wedding cake-off wedding - Oh So Perfect www.ohsoperfect.co.uk“Dear Samantha,

We’re finally settled back at home, so I want to take the time to say thank you ever so much for all of the hard work you did in pulling our wedding together: not only on the day, but for your support on the phone and email leading up it.

Having you there gave us such peace of mind, putting everything in place and being ready to change plans as swiftly as the weather did. Knowing that you were fully in control of it all allowed me to relax and enjoy myself – no mean feat!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the rest of the summer; it definitely feels over now with all of this horrible rain!

Love and thanks,

Laura and Rob”

Laura and Rob – Picnics and Wedding Cakes

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

Picnic hamper and wedding cake-off wedding - Oh So Perfect www.ohsoperfect.co.ukLaura and Rob were married on Saturday 2nd August 2014 at Plas Glansevin in the Brecon Beacons.

The happy couple catered to an informal afternoon party for their closest friends and family at a large manor house in the country, with a scrumptious picnic lunch laid out in a small tent following an outdoor ceremony under an oak tree.

Everyone chipped in to make this wedding so perfect….

The centrepieces on the tables which were sourced using flowers from the bride’s mother’s garden and lots of collected pots and jars donated to the couple.  Laura’s mother and aunts spent the morning chopping and trimming homegrown hydrangeas and roses for Oh So Perfect’s Samantha to put out on the tables ready for the wedding breakfast.

Laura and Rob worked with Charlotte Roskill Catering Limited to design and serve hampers of hot meat, salads and potatoes to their guests in the style of a posh picnic, with one lucky person on each table elected as ‘masterchef’ to serve the meal to those around them – wearing a chef hat and kitchen whites to do so too!

After the dinner, Laura and Rob judged the ‘Great Wedding Bake Off’ together, making short work of sampling each of the cakes that had been lovingly baked and decorated by their own guests at their invitation, before dishing out prizes for the top bakers and allowing everyone else too grab forks, spoons and plates to dig in!

The evening was rounded off with a Ceilidh band for entertainment and guests stayed over in the accommodation on site ready to be served breakfast together again the morning after – a perfect wedding weekend for a perfect couple!

Oh So Perfect were delighted to assist in the on the day coordination of this wedding, and also provided several hours of ‘as and when’ planning support and creative design to bride Laura in the months leading up to the big day.

Rhiannon and James ~ Testimonial

Rhiannon & James Wedding - Oh So Perfect (81)Following their wedding earlier this summer, Oh So Perfect were so delighted to receive a full testimonial from Rhiannon and James following their wedding in July. Here’s the final paragraph of what they had to say, summing up our involvement in their wedding day…

“Samantha was incredibly efficient, organised to the minute, not to mention friendly and approachable. All of my requests were met, and as Id included a lot of personal details, there were numerous. I cannot thank Samantha enough for her reassurance, hard work and flexibility. I would highly recommend Samantha and her services. When we were planning, I was determined that I didnt need an event manager to over see things on the day, but she was completely invaluable. The day certainly would not have been as enjoyable, or as seamless as it was without her services. I was completely relaxed knowing that she had everything running perfectly. She really did help to make our day the best day for us.”

Thank you Rhiannon and James for your kind words, it was a real pleasure to be part of your special day!
