Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Jo Winfield-O'Hare / Wendy Thompson
From the first consultation with a couple, finding out what they want and offering suggestions if they don’t know, to the final day when all the planning comes together. When we look at the end result of a dressed room, it gives us a feeling of great pride, knowing that in a small way, we have made memories for the happy couple to treasure. We are passionate about what we do, always looking for new ideas and inspiration that we can share with others.

Absolutely Stunning Creation
Jo and Wendy were truly fabulous!! They transformed the venue in the most spectacular way! We visited them on a few occasions at their studio to have a look at what they had and to get some ideas of what we were looking for and we couldn’t have been more impressed with the result!! The colours from their styling, with our florist arrangements matched so perfectly that, had we not known different, we wouldn’t have been able to tell they were from two different suppliers. They were wonderful on the day, setting up nice and early, and with the extra moving. We had our ceremony and reception in the same room and Jo and Wendy did amazingly well changing the room around in such a short time period! We were really really pleased with the results and it really did tie everything together beautifully! Choosing Make it Special Events was a fantastic choice and we will be forever thankful to them for helping make our day special!

I cannot begin to explain how brilliant they are
I cannot begin to explain how unbelievably brilliant Jo and her team are. Jo from the beginning was fantastic! She made me feel relaxed and that I could trust her with my important day. You can tell how much she loves her job and how she has such an eye for detail. She understood exactly what I was looking for and made all the visions I had in my head come true. She even visited my venue two weeks before to trial her ideas and in doing so suggested much more beautiful ideas which I had never thought of. She never once was too busy for me if I wanted to pop over and discus a few bits (which I did more than once!). Everyone commented on how fantastic everything looked, especially the ceremony hut which when I first saw, nearly made me cry it was so fantastic. To Jo and the team, Thankyou so so much!! ❤️

What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?

Too many to select just one.

What are the decorative trends with brides currently?

Pantone’s colour of the year is ‘greenery’. Centrepieces and décor with an abundance of foliage and leaves. Faux trees are an ideal way to tie this into your décor. Compliment with white and silver accents. Rustic wedding are still very popular. So greenery and wooden decorations fit perfectly with a rustic theme.
