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.

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.

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!

Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Morris

We’d like to wish a very happy first anniversary to our beautiful ‘Better Together’ couple – Emma and Andy – who were married in a gorgeous ceremony in Laugharne on 4th August 2012, followed by a vintage garden party celebration at Broadway Country House, for which we had the pleasure of assisting with the design and coordination of this lovely, lovely little affair. We hope you two have a gorgeous day together drinking plenty of champagne!

www.ohsoperfect.co.uk

Looking back to last year, I remember sound of the rain slamming into the sides of the marquee as we set up that morning – I must admit I was starting to worry! – but by the time the afternoon set in and the guests began to arrive, the rain cleared up and the sun shone so brightly, there was nothing to worry about in the slightest, and a beautiful day was enjoyed by all!

We had meters and meters of bespoke bunting custom made for Emma and Andy which not only went all around and across the marquee, but also adorned the conservatory, walk ways and a little romantic outdoor pagoda, with a few spare strands to decorate the bridal suite too. Emma and Andy were also the first Oh So Perfect couple to request our hand made paper pompoms, which have since become a popular feature at OSP events having been requested by our couples time and time again after seeing these lovely purple ones!

Here’s a little look back at some photos of the set up of this pretty purple reception; stringing up all the bunting and pompoms with the help of my two assistants Christina and Mark…

Oh So It’s Your Birthday!

Well don’t mind us while we just wish ourselves a big, fat, fabulous

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

One year ago today not only did we launch our official website www.ohsoperfect.co.uk but we also brought you our first little blog post… ‘Oh So it begins…’

We can not believe a whole year has flown by since Oh So Perfect became oh so independent, established, professional wedding planners and what a wonderful year we have had…

So, don’t mind us either while we say a big, fat, fabulous THANK YOU! to everyone who has supported us on our journey so far… the suppliers, followers, friends, family and of course our gorgeous, gorgeous couples… you have made this year marvellous!

So how will we be celebrating you wonder? Well there’s no time for a big party this year (we’re just oh so busy these days!) but next Sunday sees the 2012 Welsh National Wedding Awards and we’re delighted to have been shortlisted for two awards… so our table of 10 will be wined, dined and entertained as we join the best businesses in the country to celebrate all things amazing in this super-talented Welsh wedding industry… and whether we come home winners or not, we’ll certainly be toasting to an Oh So Perfect first year!

In celebration of our 1st year on the blog, here’s a few links to some of our favourite posts from the last year for your pleasure:

Dilly Daydream Cakes

Grab yourself a cup of tea and a slice of cake – you’ll certainly be fancying something sweet after you’ve read this delicious little catch-up with wedding and celebration cake-maker, Heather Harris, from Pontarddulais cake shop Dilly Daydream Cakes

Based on St Teilo Street, Pontarddulais – one of the most popular streets with brides in South Wales – Dilly Daydream bake delicious cakes using great quality ingredients, including free-range eggs.

One of the most common compliments I get is, “your cakes taste like cakes used to!”

The majority of Dilly Daydream’s customers come from the Swansea, Llanelli, and Ammanford areas, or from brides further afield who are coming home to tie the knot, and Heather has even sent her wedding cakes as far as Spain!

Most brides say they have chosen me over others, because of the taste of the cake samples they have tried. They also have confidence in my abilities to provide them with a perfect finish , and my attention to detail.

Heather loves to design something new for each customer. Every couple is different, and Dilly Daydream believe a cake can reflect your personality and taste fantastically! Weddings are a large part of Heather’s business – she considers providing couples with a unique cake that has the ‘wow’ factor for them and their guests as a true privilege.

I have quite eclectic taste, so enjoy designing cakes in different styles, from handmade sugar flowers, pearls and lace, to humorous character cakes.

Dilly Daydream cakes appeal to the bride and groom who want something unique and delicious – I have been delighted with the amount of brides who have booked their wedding cakes with me, I even have bookings for 2013.

Described as ‘friendly, delicious and unique,’ Dilly Daydream have certainly set the standard for wedding cakes in South Wales, but Heather happened upon her business venture as something of an unplanned series of events…

I did not set out to start a business, I have always enjoyed making and decorating cakes for my children, friends and family members, when friends of friends started asking for cakes, it evolved into a business.

It all started with my eldest son’s first birthday cake, he’s now 32! I had no formal training, it’s all practice and passion.

I consider myself very lucky, to be able to do what I love for a living , despite the very long hours, I would not swap it for the world.

And 32 years since that first birthday cake, Dilly Daydream has grown into a massive success, with Heather adoring every moment spent in the busy bakery.

Weddings are just the icing on the cake, if you pardon the pun, nothing beats the feeling of seeing  the cake you have worked so hard on , set up at the venue. Except maybe the thank you card from the delighted bride, some of which have reduced me to tears.

What makes a wedding Oh So Perfect? A happy couple, oh, and a fantastic cake!

Dilly Daydream Cakes is located at 130 St Tielo street, Pontarddulais, SA4 8RE or visit their website for more photos, information, and to get in touch www.dillydaydreamcake.co.uk
