[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Whether you’re having buying a wedding package from a venue, or you’re going down the more bespoke route, it’s always worth having recommendations. As a wedding photographer I can attest that every wedding really is unique. We all make different choices to suit our budgets and tastes, but there are some things that are staples of every wedding. Flowers, dresses, rings, invitations, and something to eat. These items are wedding essentials, so I’ve put together a list of wedding vendors for you to browse and help you plan your perfect wedding day.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Prim & Glad Designer Stationery

It’s one of the first things on the check list – save the date cards and invitations. Prim & Glad is run by Samantha, and she’ll work closely with you to form a brief that suits your requirements. She’ll then go away and do some awesome techy stuff on her computer, before checking the final design with you and getting it printed. She’s super friendly and efficient, and her work always reflects her clients.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2175″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.primandglad.com/”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2176″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.minna.co.uk”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Minna Bridalwear

I visited Minna in February with my sister as she was hunting for her wedding dress. Minna is a bridal wear boutique in a cool little studio above a church. They do have an online store but honestly I’d recommend making the trip down there. It’s wall to wall lace and you can have a one to one appointment with a dressmaker. It’s so chilled in there and not at all like most bridal boutiques, so if you’re after something a bit boho but still timeless, check them out. They’re online (link above), as well as having a boutique in London.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

D&D Events

D&D (which stands for Dog and Dragon) work at weddings and events around Cheshire providing delicious Cheshire Farm ice cream, pop up bars and giant picnics. They’re really well suited to outdoor receptions and everything is delivered in style. Having had an outdoor wedding reception myself, I know just what is involved in the clean up (especially when certain guests decide to have a cake fight – I’m looking at you, Brad). But with D&D it’s not your problem, because they’ll clean up after you! What more could you ask for?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2177″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.dndevents.co.uk/”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]So there’s a quick run down of some of my favourite people to buy from and work with. When you’re planning a wedding you probably have a huge, ongoing list of jobs to work through, and hopefully the companies I’ve mentioned should help you along with your planning.


Happy planning!
