I have a real treat in store for you this week. As I'm out of the country for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (on a much-needed holiday before the wedding season really kicks in) I could not resist rounding up a little creativity and inspiration for those of you who want a little Jubilee fun!
I know we said we would post about choosing your perfect venue this week but I am sure you wouldn't want the festivities to pass by without a bit of wedding jubilee action.
Whether it's a party or a wedding, here are some great ideas to help set your themed party off with a bang. I would defy you not to be completely inspired! This is a collaborative photo shoot to wow you! I certainly loved it. There are some very talented wedding suppliers out there.
Try serving drinks in paper cups decorated in red, blue and white. How about very elegant sandwiches, fresh cream scones with blue berries and strawberries, and Victoria sponge cakes or a large statement like the one in the shoot. The photos below show the most amazing sponge cake I have ever seen. Think bunting hung around trees and what about a crown for the bride or a top hat for the chaps! It's all here!
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did. The time and effort that has been put into this shoot really has paid off. It is a total inspiration fest! It just goes to show what you can do if you think outside of the box.
Remember most wedding suppliers want to create your dream wedding day vision. We all love it when you push us to be creative and we can really deliver for you.
