Sarah and Rob One Year On – and a little video to celebrate

DSC_0519

My, my how time does fly! It’s been a whole year since we assisted the gorgeous Sarah and Rob Knott with their wedding on Gower, on a scorching summer’s day hitting almost 30C outside their marquee. We hope they’re enjoying the heat this year for their first anniversary too!

We’d like to wish this lovely pair a very happy first anniversary, and thought we would celebrate today by sharing Aurora Video’s incredible film of Sarah and Rob’s wedding to enjoy for yourselves as well. It really is just stunning, I’m sure you’ll agree…

The shabby chic inspired wedding stationery was designed and produced by Something Kinda Cute.www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

You can’t beat an Oh So Perfect pompom! We made these handmade pompoms especially for Samantha and Daniel the night before the wedding to be hung in the wedding breakfast marquee. The colours matched the carefully chosen colour scheme.www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

The bride designed her own place cards, using luggage tags and lace. We clipped these onto each guest’s napkin with a little heart.

The boys were given a little moustache on a stick for their wedding favours, whilst the girls had wooden hanging hearts. Everyone also had a homemade cupcake on their table, all piled high on vintage cake stands. www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

Grandma’s and Grandpa’s even had a little something extra on their place setting!www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

Tables were named after inspirational couples in film, television and history. www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

Guests enjoyed a wonderful view over Oxwich Bay as they tucked into the main meal – what a glorious sunny day for it too! www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

Samantha’s grandparents featured on the list of inspirational couples too!www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

The centrepieces were made up of birdcages filled with flower petals, supplied by Enchanted Décor. Samantha had also cut a square of fabric to sit underneath the centrepieces, all of which matched the handmade bunting on the top table and cake table.  www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

The Vintage Tea Party Company provided a mix match of vintage china side plates, tea cups and saucers, which were used for the tea, coffee and cupcakes at the end of the meal. www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

The top table included the words ‘Mr & Mrs Morgan’ in wooden letters, along with a floral display, wicker heart and beautiful bunting hand-made by the DIY bride herself.www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

Fresh roses were added to the wedding cake, and later in the evening we moved the bridesmaid’s bouquets around the base of the cake for added effect. So pretty!www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

And what evening reception is complete without a sweetie table – this popular trend just keeps on coming back!

The bridesmaids’ bouquets were made up of fresh flowers, but Samantha’s own bouquet was designed and created using a mixtue of crystals, pearls, broaches and jewellery, which perfectly complimented her fitted lace dress.www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

As a little surprise for Samantha and Daniel, the bride’s mum had arranged for doves to be released during the drinks reception. www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

The couple were so lucky to have the sun shining down on them as they took to the beach for their photos with photographer Maria Farrelly and Richard Shelton of Aurora Video.www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

What a glorious wedding, and such a pleasure to be a part of. The bride smiled all day long, and the groom looked so pleased to see everyone enjoying themselves! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Morgan!

Sarah and Rob ~ Testimonial

Oh So Honest – Client Testimonial

We’d like to say a big thank you to our lovely couple, Sarah and Rob, for writing such a kind testimonial of Oh So Perfect‘s work at their recent ‘Gower Romance’ wedding. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of their special day, and one we won’t forget!

Rob and I were lucky enough to have won Oh so Perfect’s ‘On the day wedding coordination’ package after entering a competition at a vintage wedding fayre a few months before our big day. I can honestly say that this was possibly the best thing that could have happened to our wedding and if I had only known what I know now, I would have booked Samantha immediately after first meeting her at that wedding fayre!

We met Samantha for our first consultation a few weeks before the wedding and right from that initial meeting we were immediately impressed. Samantha was so thorough with her questions and details and was extremely attentive, making us feel like she wanted to get to know us as a couple, as well as getting to know our wedding. As any bride and groom will tell you, the final few weeks before your wedding are ridiculously busy and stressful (no matter how hard you try for them not to be!) so we were so happy to walk away from that meeting relaxed and confident that our wedding was in good hands. No stone was left unturned and going through all the final details made us even more excited for the day to arrive!

As for the wedding day, I cannot sing Samantha’s praises enough and will forever be grateful for everything she did for us! Samantha managed every aspect of the day from start to finish calmly and confidently. It was only after the wedding that I found out some of the ‘hiccups’ that took place on the wedding morning from family members – but on that morning, I was completely oblivious to it all! Samantha dealt with everything in her stride, without me even realising there was a problem – something I know both my mum and mum-in-law were very grateful of!!

One thing I am especially grateful for is that Rob and I were able to enjoy EVERY minute of the day without having to deal with all the little stresses that inevitably occur; no matter how meticulously you have planned it. Samantha took all the pressure from us and throughout the entire process, nothing was too much trouble. Not only is Samantha one of the most creative and professional people you will meet, but she is also an amazingly lovely lady!

We were lucky enough to win Oh So Perfect’s services, but both my hubby and I have said if we were to plan it all again, hiring Samantha would definitely be one of the first things we would do and we would recommend her to anybody planning their own wedding!

Sarah and Rob ~ Modern Romance

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

On Thursday 26th July 2012 Sarah Thomas married Rob Knot in an exquisite wedding held at Oldwalls Leisure in the Gower, South Wales. Oh So Perfect were delighted to be involved in the the set up and on the day coordination of Sarah and Rob’s big day…

The happy couple minutes after their marriage!

We made some pretty tissue paper floofs to decorate the outdoor swing ready for Sarah and Rob’s photos – they ended up being enjoyed by the guests as well!

The table plan was made up of vintage-style photo frames mounted on an easel, and a photo of our couple with their initials for decoration.

Sarah and Rob choose a predominately white colour scheme, with touches of black and the natural green of the floral centrepieces.

With temperatures reaching the high 20s we were lucky enough to be able to open up the marquee walls for the whole event!

The favours were sugar coated chocolates in a pretty jar adorned with lace and twine. 

Love birds on the bride and groom’s dining chair – it’s the little touches that make the difference!

The cake was made by the mother of the groom and her sister, Rob’s aunt, so pretty!

All the cupcakes and cake-pops for the evening’s desert table were made by the groom’s mother, aunt and sister.

And there were even some special guests invited to come and stay too!

A Sunday Afternoon Trip to the Gower

Diary of a Wedding Planner

Today I took a little trip down to one of the most beautiful areas in Wales, the Gower, for a final details meeting with one of my couples at their wedding location.

Despite the unfortunate looking weather forecast, the sun stayed out long enough for us to enjoy sitting outdoors throughout the meeting, while we discussed all their wedding plans and styling for their big day later this month.

I can’t wait to co-ordinate this wedding – the colour scheme is a lovely contemporary mix of black, white and green, with romantic heart details, and peonies and roses selected to adorn the bouquets. The venue is beautiful too, with meadows, rivers, lakes, and a pretty little swing; perfect for photo opportunities. There was even a horse and her foal welcoming me on my way in!

It looks set to be an absolutely stunning day – let’s just hope the sun is shining on the big day too!
