Hollie and Andrew ~ Choccywoccy Wonderland 

  
Hollie married Andrew on Saturday 29th August in a ceremony at the Woburn Hotel in Bedfordshire, followed by a reception for friends and family at Flaxbourne Gardens, Aspley Guise. 

The guests were treated to a day of Alice in Wonderland themed delights intricately woven into the set up with sweet touches such as a miniature magnifying glass table plan, tea party hand made teacup centrepieces, a cookie jar buffet, and nonsense arrows and riddles dotted about the room. 

The piece de resistance of came in the shape of a novelty, dormouse tea party cake made by legendary chocolatiers Choocywoccydoodah, which formed a central focus for many guest photographs throughout the afternoon!

Oh So Perfect we’re delighted to work with bride Hollie on an ‘as and when’ basis whilst planning her wedding, assisting with supplier meetings and some simple idea forming, and were ultimately thrilled to provide the on the day coordination for this special day.

Anna & Jeremy ~ Suitcases and Canoes 

 Anna and Jeremy were married at St Cynog’s church, Boughrood on Saturday 15th August 2015, followed by a reception and wedding breakfast at Felin Newydd House, Llandefalle.

The theme of the wedding was elegant, rustic, with a hint of travel – a nod towards the many countries Anna and Jeremy have visited around the world together, both with work and leisure, and a tribute to their expat life in Grand Cayman.

Anna, Jeremy and Oh So Perfect’s wedding planner Samantha worked very closely together for several months to create and perfect the style of the day, pulling together ideas and designing feature displays which included vintage suitcases, rustic crates, flowers, candles and an old map of the world hosting the table plan.

Together we designed an outdoor breakout area, which centred around a rustic canoe and old whiskey barrels. During the day, the canoe was filled with beers from around the world for guests to enjoy at their leisure, and in the evening we converted this display into a feature whiskey, port and cigar bar.

Guests were given little bottles of cocktails at their tables, individually designed to match the country the table was named after, and handmade wooden napkin rings whittled and produced by the father of the groom were offered out as keepsakes. The wedding cake was lovingly made by a cousin of the bride.

There was a relaxed vibe to the whole day, with dinner and music, and a special treat performance of a brass quintet with the groom himself playing the tuba. The next day, guests rekindled on the grass outside Felin Newydd House for a hangover-hog roast, enjoyed by many!

Oh So Perfect were delighted to have assisted in the overall planning, styling and design, and weekend coordination of this beautiful wedding, working from people afar with our international couple based in Cayman for 9 months leading up to the big day….
Congratulations Anna and Jeremy! X

Charlotte & Nick ~ Elegant florals in the barn

  Charlotte & Nick were married on Saturday 5th July 2014 in a church ceremony followed by an utterly divine wedding reception in Buckinghamshire.

The wedding breakfast barn on a listed farm property, was in every way filled to the rafters with fresh flowers; an abundance of different types of rose and peonies at various stages of blossom adorned tables littered with glassware, teacups, and hurricane vases and tall candelabras. Cherry blossom grew up the listed barn walls, and a cherry blossom tree offered guests a clue to where to sit. 

Oh So Perfect were delighted to work with this beautiful family for a second time, and provided on the day coordination for the happy couple.

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!

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.
