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.

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”

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!

Alicia and Tom ~ Roses and Daffodils

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

Oh So Perfect Samantha Imbimbo www.ohsoperfect.co.ukThis absolutely stunning South Wales wedding was styled using a classic, elegant black and white theme, and the addition of two accent colours – yellow daffodils for a Welsh bride, and red roses for an English groom. The overall affect was clean cut, classy and above all, patriotic.

The church in the bride’s home town was filled with yellow daffodils, which glowed throughout the ceremony as the sun shone upon them through tall stained glass windows.

The marquee overlooking the Gower estuary was lined in an elegant, classic black and white theme, each then table decorated with large plumes of simple yet stunning red roses.

Mirror table tops assisted in reflecting light, geometry and colour around the room, while the red charger plates helped highlight the deep red of the roses. The marquee was lit with 3 large diamond chandeliers, and the entrance to the wedding breakfast was adorned with Welsh Dragon and English Lion ice sculptures. Yellow daffodil charity pins were offered to guests as favours, incorporating the couples’ charitable nature and their theme perfectly.

Guests were entertained with a string quartet, male voice choir, Dixie jazz band, harpist, and singing waiters throughout the day. The night rounded up with a live band and DJ.

Our best wishes and love go to Tom and Alicia for their future together as husband and wife, and thanks extend to all the family for the careful planning of such a glorious day. Oh So Perfect were honoured to be involved in the coordination of this beautiful wedding.

2014 Wedding Season… ready, steady, oh so go!

We’re oh so excited up at Perfect HQ this afternoon as the sun is shining in through the office window and there’s only two days to go before our first wedding of the 2014 season kicks off – hooray!

www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

 

We’ve been a little slower starting our season this year compared to last; last Spring saw us with two weddings in April and now gearing up towards our third, but this year we’re starting a little later with our first date in May. That said though, we also squeezed in three glorious winter weddings at the end of 2013 so it doesn’t feel quite as a long a gap between the seasons as the year before last!

Don’t be fooled though lovelies, starting our first wedding of 2014 a little later certainly doesn’t mean that we haven’t had a busy few months at Oh So Perfect this year already. We’ve been at our desks since January working hard on the year ahead, not only changing things within the business and updating our website (we relocated to Buckinghamshire a few months ago, did you hear?) but also writing editorial for Your Berks, Bucks and Oxon magazine, making contact with new suppliers, and of course not to mention the thing we do best – wedding planning!

www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

We’ve been busy working hard with international couples this year, assisting with the full planning of one very big wedding due to take place in July, and a huge family gathering (Oh So Perfect don’t just work on weddings either!) taking place at the end of this month too. We also helped a lovely Welsh couple to source a marquee with our Oh So Helpful as and when wedding planning service and held a few meetings with brides here and there to help them along their wedding planning way. Plus, next month our very own wedding planner Samantha is hanging up her clipboard for a day as she takes on the role of Maid of Honour for her best friend, so we’ve dipped our toes into the glamorous world of organising  hen parties too in recent weeks!

So, with the first big wedding of the year only 2 days away – and oh yes it’s certainly a big one (did someone say 400 guests in a marquee on the Gower peninsula….?)  – we’re busy, busy finalising schedules and plans, updating emails, and preparing our clipboard for the coming event. My fabulous South Wales assistant Anthony is gearing up his clipboard too to assist with organising and overseeing all the events at the marquee on Saturday morning as the suppliers arrive and set up, whilst Samantha will be working closely with the bride at her home helping her and her attendants get ready and arrive at the church on time. This bride has cleverly made the most of our newest package the Oh So Lovely – Bride’s Best Friend to ensure maximum support throughout the morning, afternoon and evening too.

04

Later this afternoon I’ll be taking out the Oh So Oh No! emergency pink kit box and ensuring that it’s once again full to the brim with everything a good wedding planner could possibly need to help with any hiccups on the day… not that there will be any hiccups, this is an Oh So Perfect wedding after all! We’ve already loaded the car with our big white bridal brollies just in case, though with the current weather forecast showing blue sky and sunshine here’s hoping we won’t need them, but better to be prepared!

The 2014 season is about to kick off, and we have weddings taking place through May, June, July and August already on our books, but it’s not too late to add yours to the mix too so if you’d like any help with some Oh So Supportive – On The Day Coordination for your wedding day in England or Wales this year, make sure you get in touch quick to make the most of the wonderful packages and services we have to offer!

Until next time, lovelies….. xx

Kayleigh and Mark ~ Love Birds

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

Goodness me, it seems we forgot to post this wedding up last season – goodness knows how as it was beautiful! But luckily we have realised today, and as such can share some lovely real-life wedding snaps from one of our weddings on the blog for you this afternoon!

www.ohsoperfect.co.ukOn Saturday 13th September 2013, Kayleigh married Mark in a ceremony at Treberfydd House, near Brecon, followed by a marquee reception in the manor house’s glorious gardens. Kayleigh and Mark refer to eachother as bird – what better pet name for two love birds – so elegantly reflected in their pretty, vintage theme.

Oh So Perfect were delighted to provide On The Day Coordination for this pretty pair!

Oh So Perfect – Wedding and Event Portfolio

www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

On Saturday 27th April 2013, Samantha Wills married Daniel Morgan in a ceremony at Mumbles Methodist Church, followed by a reception at Oxwich Bay Hotel. Oh So Perfect were delighted to be involved with the On The Day Coordination of this birdcages and bunting themed vintage fabulous wedding.

www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

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.
www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

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!
www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

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!

Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience – the day is done!

So, here I am as promised following on from my previous blog post about Oh So Perfect‘s involvement in series 4 of Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience.

Samantha, Rhod and the film crew play with the photobooth.

Samantha, Rhod and their big pink boxes!

Samantha, Rhod and their big pink boxes!

I’m not going to say much though, as I think some things are better left unsaid for now – instead I shall keep you waiting until later on this summer when the programme hits our screens here in Wales and iPlayer across the border!

But to summarise – wow what a wedding! The day was fabulous, the room looked incredible, Rhod not only rolled up his sleeves and got stuck in in-front of the cameras, but he genuinely took a shine to my couple and joined in with helping me to deliver the greatest day they could have even when the camera stopped rolling.

But most important of all, on the day itself my couple were smiling: and not just ‘oh this is nice’ smiling but really, truly grinning their socks off, big cheesy grins from ear to ear! Rhod and the crew did such a cracking job of arranging a handful of extra surprises on the day that my couple’s wedding went from being incredible to ‘oh my!’ in a matter of minutes; and the bride, groom and their family couldn’t have been more thrilled to say the least.

But that’s it. Shhh! I’m not saying any more, you’ll simply have to wait to watch the show and see all the shenanigans that went on behind the scenes later this year!

That’s all for now!

Peter and Margaret Randall ~ Testimonial

Oh So Honest – Client Testimonial

We are delighted to be able to share this testimonial with you from the parents of the bride at our recent Caerphilly Castle wedding for which we had the pleasure of providing Oh So Supportive – On The Day Coordination.

Dear Samantha,

The smooth running of the Wedding Day was due in no small part to your professionalism, efficient and yet unobtrusive organisation. Eleri and Tim had worked so hard for over a year to get every detail right but your contribution on the day was critical to the very successful coordination and implementation of the range of activities involved. With such a large and impressive event it is difficult for members of the wedding party to manage all the matters needing attention in a detached and dispassionate manner. You provided that cool and caring attention in a relaxed, friendly and approachable manner. Your role was an important contribution to the great joy and happiness we all experienced on the day. It took all the pressure off the family and we were able to enjoy the day without a worry.

The photographs that you took were lovely…they clearly illustrate your flair and artistic ability.

Many many thanks

with kindest regards and best wishes

Margaret and Peter Randall
