Grittleton, Chippenham, Wiltshire, SN14 6AP
This beautifully old jacobean house is nothing short of gorgeous. Its my all time favourite wedding venue, oozing class and sophistication it’s nestled in the Wiltshire Cotswolds, whats not to love!
From the moment you step through the wrought iron gates at the head of the estate driveway you will be blown away by its grandeur and beauty. I could go on for days about this venue but all I can say is if you are looking for that perfect venue where you want to be hosted by profesionals and treated to the wedding day of your dreams then give them a call. Go and see what I’m talking about. It ticks every box, grand reception rooms, sweeping staircase, rich colours and it has an orangery! Don’t get me started on the italian gardens. As a photographer, its pure joy.
I have the absolute pleasure to say I have become one of their recommended suppliers, quite chuffed about that!

This breathtakingly beautiful wedding boutique simply took my breath away when I walked through the door. Elegant, pretty and oozing class are words that came straight to mind.
Victoria is one of those people that you instantly gel with, she is warm, knowledgeable and incredibly passionate about getting the right dress and fit for her brides. I think its fair to say she is in love with her boutique and everything about it…..I would be too x
Willoughby & Wolf is quite different to any bridal boutique I’ve visited before. To use Victoria’s own words she describes her luxe bridal boutique as “a little bit rock and roll with a modern contemporary twist” . Gorgeous.
When I met Holly for the first time I was really impressed with her knowledge of precious metals and diamonds. She doesn’t get you a ring you’ve picked out of a catalogue, she creates it uniquely for you. Holly has a network of goldsmiths and diamond suppliers all ethically sourced and made from scratch. She’s a touch of class, some may say ‘a little diamond’!! Sorry couldn’t resist 😀
Holly will travel to you, bring you examples of her work, suggest design ideas and don’t worry, she’s pretty good at keeping that engagement ring a secret too! No more trudging around city centre shops, give Holly a call, she’ll either meet you at a lush coffee lounge or come to your home. She’s lovely, bubbly, knowledgeable and a unique service.
She is UK based but primarily covering Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bath, Bristol & South Wales.
Rachel is so good at what she does. She is warm, friendly, full of ideas, creative and an all round lovely person. She is my ‘go to’ hair and makeup stylist for bridal boudoir shoots, she always makes her clients feel completely at ease.
Rachel works from her base in Chippenham and travels within an hour of her home. If I were getting married again, she would be my first port of call for sure. She gets booked up very quickly so I’d hurry if I were you.
Judy is a pure genius with flowers. She creates the most wonderful displays for just about any occasion. Her wedding floristry is absolutely beautiful, from bridal bouquets to table centre pieces, grooms button holes to door archways. There is nothing this lady can’t do with a flower!
She is such a lovely lady too, talking to her you will soon know she will WOW you on your big day or special occasion.
Sarah’s cakes are mouthwateringly heavenly! Being stood next to her stand at a wedding fair for the whole day is pure torture! Her red velvet cake is my personal fav but saying that I’m pretty partial to a lemon cake too.
Sarah makes all of her wonderful cakes in her own home, in her family kitchen. She is one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met, warm, understanding and the most experienced cake maker I know and I’ve met a few in my time! She just gets it, she knows what you might like and there is no end to her creativity. She’s good, I strongly recommend you call her and quick, she books up super fast!
Kim is one very talented young lady. I’ve been wowed by all the different cakes she has made for birthdays, parties, wedding and special events.
Always going above and beyond to create that perfect cake for any occasion, if you don’t believe me, take a look at her website, they are amazing.
Kim will walk through all your ideas and creatively turn them into reality. Give her a call, you won’t be disappointed.
I met Louise a few months ago through the Whitewed.directory whilst working on a styled photography shoot. I was totally impressed with her energy and creative skill. She always goes the extra mile to help you out.
There are several examples of her floristry on my own website, one of which that stands out in my mind is my asian styled shoot at Grittleton House. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean, she’s awesome.
I’ve met Jack a few times and always find him great fun to be around. Who wouldn’t want magic at their special event, especially Jacks. He is pure class.
Go take a look at his website and you’ll see what I mean. He entertains guests with the most brilliant magic. I have no idea how he does it but he leaves you spell bound and wanting to know more. He is the kind of guy you want at your wedding. Classy, stylish and a pure gentleman. He’s fab.

Catherine Blades Couture was the very first bridal designer I’d ever met. I was totally intrigued to discover how Catherine custom designs and creates her own gowns for each and every bride. She is bursting with ideas and exceptionally talented at being able to visualise the dress each bride has pictured in her dreams.
Nestled in the heart of the Berkshire countryside Catherine invites all her brides to visit the studio for a personal design experience they will never forget. Your unique gown will turn heads on your special day.
The beautiful sound from Angela’s harp gives me goosebumps. It sounds like fairies are tip toeing over the strings making such a romantic sound. She is a very talented lady with a very impressive knowledge of music. Her experience is incredible, she has played for orchestras such as The Royal Ballet, Covent Garden and The London Philharmonic Orchestra to name but a few.
I’ve worked with her a few times at weddings where she sits and creates that romantic sound with her elegant golden harp. Can you just imagine walking down the aisle to that magical sound. As a photographer standing right next to her I even had a tear in my eye, she’s amazing. Talented doesn’t cover it.
The Manor at Weston-on-the-Green, Oxfordshire. OX25 3QL
I am proud to say that I have been lucky enough to work at this gorgeous venue a few times and am now one of their recommended suppliers. The Manor is set in the Oxfordshire countryside and exceptionally well positioned close to the M40 and Bicester making this venue choice an easy one for you and your guests, especially if you live a little further north than Oxford.
I was chuffed to bits to find my images all over their weddings page. Go take a look and you’ll soon find that this venue is yet another stunning place to tie the knot and become the new Mr & Mrs.
Venues Covered will transform your venue for your perfect wedding day or event, your venue will look amazing and just perfect for your big day.
The awards they’ve won are due to all the extra care and attention spent for each and every client. Nothing is too much trouble for your big day. Give them a call, Steph and her team are lovely.
Georgia is a breath of fresh air. She has an eye for detail, nothing is too much trouble and if you want something a little different Georgia is your girl. She loves a challenge and cannot wait to get stuck into any kind of stationery designs. Her wedding stationery is divine, very different and unique to every client.
She loves to chat with you to find out exactly your vision for your big day or special event so she can create you something that no-one else has got. Yep totally unique. Give her a call you won’t regret it.
Royal Wootton Bassett, Swindon, Wiltshire
I originally met Natalie through the Whitewed Directory. Natalie is one of the nicest people I have met in a long time, she is bubbly, bright and full of energy. Her professionalism is second to none and as for organisation you will find yourself organised before even you know it!
Who she doesn’t know in the wedding industry isn’t worth knowing! In fact she is the owner of the Whitewed.directory so has access to a huge number of profesional wedding suppliers, one of them of course, is me!. She is impressively recommended by previous clients so if you want a wedding planner look no further, I know you will not be disappointed but do book early as she is one of the most sought after planners and gets booked up very quickly.
