I met Vicky and James at a wedding fair and after talking in lengths about the services we offer, they wanted to go the whole hog with us and enlist our help tp bring their wedding to fruition. They shared their many passions with us, including birds, owls, literature and travel and it was our job to work through the Sparks in order to come to a styling palette that could bring some of those loves together without being over the top.
Once we had the styling decided we then moved on to design their invitations. We created chalkboard style invites and brought in their love of calligraphy and coral. Once the invitations and wedding branding was completed we then transferred this on to their own wedding website.
We worked closely with their florist to style the flowers in a way that worked with the table decor and styling in general. Bags of locally picked cherries in printed kraft bags sat as place settings and a special table plan installation using a wooden ladder and some hand-made moss nests with faux birds made a great talking point. A hand-drawn chalkboard by The Chalkspot mimicked our design from the invitations and greeted the guests as they arrived at the venue.
Finally, we were there on the day to set everything up, arrange flowers, props, the cake table and the table dressings themselves.
"‘We found Bellaboo & Beau at the Scotney Castle Wedding Fair and it was the best decision we ever made to work with them in the run up to our special day. Jenny and Leanne had amazing ideas and we made use of so many of them, from the design of the stationary to the styling of the venue - everything they did was fantastic! However it wasn't just the ideas, the amount of time they committed to us made such a difference - it was such a weight off our minds to know that everything was receiving their full attention. Our guests were constantly telling us how incredible our venue looked!"
