Hi Guys, Firstly i just wanted to say a massive
Or if you would prefer it in welsh??
As a business we've had a fantastic but tiring weekend and few days. Firstly, Saturday we were privileged enough to help out at A Hero's Wedding. Saera and Matthew are such a lovely couple and couldn't have been more thankful for the support they received on their big day! Thanks for having us guys!!!
After all the celebrations on Saturday, we were back hard at work exhibiting at a wonderful wedding fayre put on by A Savvy Welsh Wedding. There was a fantastic turn out and plenty of fun had by all!
Monday, we dressed one of our preferred venues, Pontypridd Golf Club for a Photo shoot!! Cheers Fran!! ;-) *** This is also the venue for our next wedding fayre!!! Come and See Us!!!***
And Today, we what can i say? Fantastic meeting this morning followed by Jemma and I giving our official notice! On St. Dwynwens Day!!! Completely unplanned I promise - could this be a sign?
Please leave comments - We'd Love to know how everyone else wedding planning is going!!
Tonight we had the pleasure of helping out at Saera and Matthew's Dream wedding at the New House Hotel, Cardiff. I won't go into it, but Saera and Matt have had an extremely difficult few years so nobody deserves this more than them. This really was a 'hero's wedding' and we were so pleased and honoured to be able to donate our services.
Thanks very much for all of the positive comments and feedback on the first blog post, this could become a regular thing.
This is aimed at all the brides and grooms out there just starting to plan their big day! Below i have attached a list of some of the most awesomely amazing suppliers we've met along the way.

Hi Guys, you will probably guess by the time you've read this, but I've never ever written a blog before! I'm assuming i just need to write loads of stuff? The occasional Joke? professional hints tips and pointers on wedding planning? - PLEASE Enlighten me if I'm wrong!
Ok, so......some background info on Jemma, I and the Company. Jemma and I Met in EE (T-mobile) where we both worked for a horrifically long time, however there was a plus - We Met!
We got together, Moved in together blah blah blah, and then i decided on her birthday last year (New Years Day for those of you that want to add it to your calendars) to take the plunge, One knee and everything! I proposed!!!
Obviously she said yes or we wouldn't be here!
So without delay, we went off on what felt like the 'never ending' search for a venue! Needless to say I've now seen enough Castles, Golf Clubs, Stately Homes and Manor bloody houses to last me a lifetime - or so i thought!!!
Now, after the venue and Date were set we turned to look at Venue Dressing. (This of you who know me will not be surprised!!) I am quite possibly the tightest man in South Wales, so, rather than look to RENT things like a sweet cart, Table Centre Pieces, LED LOVE Letters, etc. i decided we need to BUY them! (Cheaper in the long run see ;-) )
Now - if anyone reading this got to the same point, though process or just idea - DON'T!!!
'Why?' I hear you ask. 'Good Question!' I Reply - 'Because you end us starting a bloody wedding business because you cant get in the spare room!!!! Thats Why!!!!'
I'm Joking - we both absolutely love what we do, and we wouldn't change a thing for the world!
Since then, The business has gone from strength to strength! we have grown from One small Sweet cart to Four! We now offer Chair Covers, Table Decor, LED LOVE Letters, Starlight Backdrops, Popcorn and Candy floss Stands, BBQ Catering and Hog Roasts to name just a few!!
Right then - Thats Her, Me and Us. I Hope all readers enjoys and that it made sense most importantly!
There will be a follow up to this very soon! I intend to talk more about our journey both through Celebration and Party Supplies and planning our own wedding! Also adding Links and Introducing some other suppliers that we are using and have met along the way!!!
Until Then, Happy Wedding Planing!!!
