About Fields of Pressed Flowers:

Wedding flowers, in particular the bouquet, play an important role in your wedding. They can help show your personality as a couple, add atmosphere to your venue, and convey sentiment and memories through the use of certain flowers.

That allows us to agree what you want before the big day happens to ensure you get the shots you require. You will hopefully see that I am very passionate about every part of this job and most importantly the social aspect of working with client/s. I love the idea packaging together an experience of a lifetime my clients, something to always remember.

From the moment you enquire, right though our initial first meet to talk about your aspirations to the moment I snap on your special day. You will feel at ease and relaxed as I take control of all your photography needs.

So don’t hold back, reach out and make an enquiry and lets discuss YOUR BIG DAY.

The Little Details Company

The little details company was born out of a wedding day panic. You know the type of morning when everything is going wrong, the bride can’t know, and her friends jump in to save the day? Yes that. I (Kate)  was one of those friends and as a big fan of weddings, decided that no friend or family member (and certainly no bride or groom) should have to undergo such stress when it should be a celebration. So, way back when in 2004 I rocked up at a wedding show with eight chair covers and sashes, one centrepiece and a passion for style. Little did I know that I would be booked that day for a wedding that was the weekend after, and the business would go from strength to strength.

I later made the move from Hampshire to Northamptonshire in 2012 (funny what love makes you do!) and met Katie in our day jobs working in the event industry. We worked well together, complimented each other’s strengths, and found we had the same big ideas about wedding venue perfection (although Katie is more of a faffer than me!) we decided to team up to be able to bring the little details company to Northamptonshire whilst still growing it in Hampshire.

The little details company is a real family business, with our husbands often pitching in when their engineering and mechanical design strengths are needed, and our children being taught a positive work ethic… although they aren’t quite trusted to tie bows yet, but they have worked out they could earn some serious cash! 

We’d love to work with you on your wedding helping you create the day of your dreams so check out our socials page for inspiration and drop us a message to chat things through.

Eddie Young Magic

Firstly, congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

When you plan your big day, you want it to be remembered for years to come. Have you thought about who will keep your celebrations on track, who will do all the announcements and who is going to wow your guest on the day?

Well, that’s me your Wedding Emcee. What’s an Emcee, I hear you cry.

Think of me as your modern-day master of ceremonies. 

I welcome your guests, introduce the key stages of your day and make sure everyone’s in the right place at the right time (you don’t want Grandad missing when the photographer’s ready to roll). 

Then imagine a toastmaster who comes with a quaint brand of humour and memory-making magic

As your wedding emcee I do everything you’d expect from a traditional toastmaster but without the formality and the red tailcoat (so 80’s, don’t you think?). 

In a contemporary twist, I use comedy and magic to provide a relaxed energy that creates new friendships and brings families together.

I’ll help your day run smoothly and give everyone lots of laughs and breathtaking moments along the way.

I’m Louise, a cake designer who loves creating beautiful and delicious cakes that add the perfect sweet finish to your special day.

I love working with my couples to create the cake of their dreams, whether it’s more traditional with hand made sugar or fresh flowers to match the bouquet, or something more quirky with figures that hold special meaning for you. It’s your wedding cake and you get to choose how it looks.

But looks aren’t everything, what’s on the inside counts too and your wedding cake really should provide the perfect sweet finish to your special day.  You can have different flavours for each tier, so you can keep granny happy with a small fruit cake on the top if you need to, then the rest can be your own favourites – chocolate, vanilla, lemon, red velvet, carrot, salted caramel… the possibilities are endless and absolutely delicious!

Please take a look at my website and social pages, and do get in touch if you have any questions or would like me to create your dream cake. 

About me: 

I’ve always loved baking and decided in 2015 to learn the decorating side before setting up Louise Cannon Cakes in 2016. My specialty is sugar flowers and working with sugar paste (fondant), but I’m equally happy making semi-naked or butter cream finish cakes.

Our neons are all mounted on acrylic and stand-alone on rustic custom made copper frames. This means they can be placed almost anywhere and be decorated how YOU want. They will offer fantastic photo opportunities for your Instagram loving friends. 

All of our neons are made from LED Flex and replaces the traditional glass neon signage. They produce relatively no heat at all and no risk of the glass shattering/breaking like usual neons, making it safe for all your guests.

To make things easier for you, we offer delivery or collection. Get in touch to hear about our current deals and offers.

Hi my name is Jennifer Grant and the doors of Grant Your Wish Cakes opened in 2016.   I am a Liverpool lass and travel all over the Northwest and further with my Wedding Cakes.  I love creating big, bold, unconventional colourful, textured, modern designs.

I learnt to bake with my Mum on Sundays making scones, cakes, jam roly poly.  This passion for baking continued into my own motherhood with my 4 children creating treats and birthday cakes.

So when I was unable to continue working as a Nurse my passion and creativity for baking turned into my cake business, using all my tried and tested recipes I baked with my Mum.

I feel a Wedding cake is a huge part of your day. It is a statement about you as a couple , unique.

I always strive to provide this unique bespoke service to each couple, creating a Wedding Cake as unique and unforgettable as they are.

I only use fresh ingredients sourced locally. I use free range eggs and make my own curds, toffee, caramel, jams. This provides the yummy home baked taste that I learnt from my Mum.

I have regular release dates for tasting boxes to help you choose your flavours.  Consultations can be booked by e-mail or on my social media platforms. On my Website there is a initial inquiry form for brief details and to see if I have your date available to save with a deposit.  We can then get together on Zoom or in person to begin to design your cake and sketches can be provided.

Tips for Hosting Children on Your Special Day

The topic of whether children should be invited to weddings is very contentious. Some people firmly believe they have no place and do not invite them, however for other couples it would not be the wedding of their dreams without their children or the children of people they love present. It is fair to say that kids can sometimes find weddings boring or become overstimulated, and either scenario can cause issues. So, this blog assumes you do want to include children on your special day and looks at ways you can ensure they have a fantastic time and there is no stress for the bride and groom and anyone else at the wedding party.

Set Your Expectations

Start by agreeing as a couple the expectations of children being part of the day. Some people have an open event, but others respectfully ask that children be excluded from the formal ceremony but welcomed at the meal and following celebrations. Once you have it in your head how they fit in, making plans for them becomes much easier.

Rehearsing Helps Kids

If some of the children at the wedding will form part of the ceremony, a flower girl, ring bearer, etc., then try and schedule a rehearsal. We have all seen videos of little ones crying or refusing to cooperate at the crucial moment. This is a big deal for them, so knowing what will happen makes it more accessible. Also, make sure what they are wearing is age-appropriate or let them change after the ceremony if you don’t want them crawling on the floor in a pretty dress, and make sure they are warm enough if the weather turns.

Kid-Friendly Eating

Feeding your guests is expensive, but most caterers can add a cheaper, less fussy kids meal that makes things run smoothly. It gives the parents peace of mind, too; trust us, no one wants to be the red-faced stressed parent trying to deal with a child who hates the food and won’t eat. Also, consider incorporating a goodie bag with the kid’s meals. Something to colour and some crayons, a small bag of sweets, a little pocket game, anything that helps them stay entertained. It can be a long time for a child to sit still and stay in one place! Sit your older teens together; they really won’t enjoy adult chat and will much prefer to be with people their age even if they don’t know each other before the day.


The other option is to look into activities. Some venues have a room set aside and can help organise a children’s entertainer to take over at a certain point, especially if there is going to be a lot of waiting around, or perhaps during the speeches. Other venues will be happy to arrange a big screen where you could leave kid-friendly movies running for any time they need to escape the main party. If you have entertained the children in the day, there is also nothing wrong with putting a curfew on the evening party and requesting that kids are taken home or collected by grandparents for the last few hours – by that point, the parents will probably thank you as they get some time to themselves!

Unique Wedding Guest Book Ideas

Unique Wedding Guest Book Ideas

Having a guest book for everyone to sign is a traditional part of your big day. It is a lovely way to create a book of memories that you can look back over at any time and remember the magic of the moment. Sadly though, what tends to happen is that this book is placed in a cupboard or drawer where it gathers dust and is rarely looked at. If you want to create something that can take pride of place in your home and serve as a daily reminder, bringing smiles and warm fuzzy feelings while offering a unique take on the guest book idea, here are some alternatives you may want to consider.

Instant Camera/Photo Booth

Photo booths have gained much traction in the wedding world. The equipment, which includes a polaroid camera booth and lots of funny hats, feather boas, wacky glasses and signs, is delivered to the venue, and guests can enjoy snapping creative pictures. One way to create a guest book is to make a coffee table scrapbook of these images or frame them all in a large clip frame. You can even get the guests to design the layout by having the scrapbook on hand and some simple instructions asking them to snap it, stick it and sign it!

Fingerprint Trees

Ahead of the big day, commission someone arty to paint a large, bare branch tree onto an A2 or A1 canvas. All you need then are some ink pads in various colours. Ask your guests to take a finger or thumbprint and place it on a branch as if it were a leaf, and once more, get them to sign it, so you know which print belongs to each guest. It is fun and unusual and makes a gorgeous piece of wall art for your home once the big day is over.

Jenga Blocks

This has to be one of our favourites. Jenga is a popular brick stacking game, and these small wooden blocks are perfect for getting the guests to sign. Each block can be signed by an individual, couple or even family group as it has four sides. It is a talking point and will help you immortalise your guests loving thoughts forever. Depending on your personal choices, there are plenty of ways to stack it for display, either as they are or fixed into place in a frame or abstract structure.

A Box of Blessings

Finally, you could choose to create a box of blessings. Small cards are left with a box for guests to leave their blessings and words of wisdom on your big day. There is much scope to make this unique, from the container you choose to the shape of the paper or cards. Some people opt for a traditional message in a bottle rolled scroll; others pick a heart-shaped card. There is no right or wrong here!

Any suggestions we have included can be customised to suit the two of you perfectly and give you a guest book that will bring you joy forever.
