Suppliers of great wedding products in Shropshire, Staffordshire

Suppliers of great wedding products and services in Shropshire, Staffordshire & Cheshire

Here are a few wedding suppliers that I have worked with in the past and I have had brides say how great they have been. When you are planning your special day picking the right supplier is always daunting as you want the best. So I thought I would display some suppliers details that may be of help to you when booking your wedding.

Always and Forever Wedding Cars
Turn back the clock and travel to your wedding in a beautiful hand-built Beauford car (“The Baroness”) of a 1930′s design…a bygone period of style and elegance.
“Always & Forever” is a family business based in Stone, Staffordshire, and their aim is to make your special day even more special. I photographed at the first wedding of “The Baroness” and it was a real head turner. They cover the Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stafford and South Cheshire regions, and they make sure you arrive in true style on your most important day.

Slaters Country Inn
I have photographed many weddings at Slaters and it is one of my favourite venues. The wedding co-ordinator (Julie) is a lovely lady and very knowledgeable and helpful and will be there to help you with any queries you have. Slaters is nestled in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside and yet only 10 minutes drive from the Potteries and major motorway connections so it is an ideal location and complete wedding venue. Your ceremony will be conducted in the newly built Wedding House and your reception held in The Briar Suite
which is tastefully converted from 18th century farm buildings, and exudes "olde worlde" charm with beamed ceilings and an open fireplace. French doors lead to the private gardens where, weather permitting your guests can enjoy drinks under the gazebos. The food and the service are great too!

The Staffordshire Toastmaster - Wayne Shelton - Professional Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies
Some venues may say that they have a Master of Ceremonies included in the price of your wedding package, however, with all due respect to the venue this is usually the hotels duty manager who is looking after your reception. There is nothing like the grandeur of having a 'proper' Master of Ceremonies/Toastmaster to ensure your day runs smoothly and Wayne will certainly do that ... and he is a really nice guy!
After leaving the Royal Air Force after 26 years and then working for the UN, Wayne attended the prestigious United Kingdom School of Professional Toastmasters in 2007 to gain his qualifications as a Professional Toastmaster and has stood in many and varied functions since his graduation ... and boy does he look the part too! Take a look at his website by clicking on his name in the title above or give him a call on 01889 271655 or 07905 662246.

Vitaliano's Delicious Ice Cream
An ice cream man with an ice cream bike! Vitaliano is a really happy, lovely person who has the most delicious ice cream (I can definately recommend the Caramela and the Mint Choc Chip flavours). Even if you are having a wedding with few or no children then this is ideal as everyone loves an ice cream no matter what their age ... don't they?

The Three Horseshoes (Nr Leek)
The Three Horseshoes is a great place for a wedding, the staff are helpful and friendly, the food is great, the gardens are lovely and good for photographs with a view to die for out over the Roaches!
There is accommodation so the bride can get ready at the venue (or stay the night before with her bridesmaids) and the bride and groom and guests can stay the night of the wedding too so not to worry about transport.
So if you are planning your wedding, then take a look at The Three Horseshoes Nr Leek, you won't be disappointed.

J & J Designs - Bridal
Pop in to their gorgeous boutique on London Road in Newcastle Under Lyme to see the most beautiful dresses in the area. They have such a range to choose from and alterations can be made on the premises so you don't have to worry! Judy , Amy and the staff will look after really well ... AND they also have a Gents suit department too !

Stantons of Stoke - A Big Red Double Decker Bus
I'm always very happy when I know that my bride & groom have booked one of these buses as they always bring a smile to my face, it's such a great way to get your guests to and from your venue(s) especially if there is limited parking. Their vehicles are presented to the highest standard for your special day, whether for transporting the bride to the serivce or for your guests between venues they can travel all together at ease with a novelty factor.

Decorative Cakes by Donna
The most lovey tasting and looking cakes ever !!! Donna is so creative you really need to look her up and see what she has to offer. She is in demand and limits herself to a certain number of cakes each week so she can give each cake a high level of care ... so book her ... quick !!!

Carole Renshaw - Civil Life Celebrant
Imagine a Wedding or a Renewal of Vows ceremony that’s designed entirely around your ideas and wishes. Carole conducts personalised and creative ceremonies that can be held anywhere and at anytime. She specialises in providing an experience that promotes choice, professionalism and complete freedom to make something quite special happen for you. Carole is based Nr Stafford but she travels to carry out ceremonies all over the country.

Joy Bailey Video
Joy and Cary Bailey are two of the nicest people I have worked with on a wedding. They are fun whilst remaining professional and produce great results. Their company is based on the same beliefs as mine and that is that the needs of the customer are of the utmost importance. Their entire team is committed to meeting those needs and as a result a high percentage of their business is from referrals. Joy and the team are based in Stoke-on-Trent but do travel so don't worry if you are further a-field!
