A Sweet and Pretty Year

Well it's almost the first anniversary of Sweet & Pretty launching and what a fantastic year it's been.I thought I'd share a little recap of the highlights of my year as a Bristol Wedding Planner.

I've had the opportunity to be involved in 23 amazing weddings and events and my diary for 2014 already has over 20 entries so it looks like 2014 is going to be even busier.

I started off by launching my new brand and products at the fabulous Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair. My jam jar wedding favours proved an immediate hit and have graced many weddings since.


Candy buffets have also been popular this year proving they're a trend that's set to stay. Here's a look a some of my work. I think this year I've really honed my signature style and tried to set my sweet tables apart as offering something a bit different for the style conscious couples.





It's also been fantastic to focus more on wedding coordination and planning this year. I've been lucky enough to work as a freelance wedding coordinator at two unique Bristol wedding venues.

The first is St George's Bristol, an amazing music venue just off Park Street with gorgeous grounds, a stunning hall and its own underground crypt bar. It's been a pleasure working with the couples who had their receptions there and the team at St George's. 




The other venue is the seemingly unusual wedding venue Arnos Vale Cemetery. If you've not thought about getting married in a cemetery (I wouldn't blame you!) then you'd be amazed quite how beautiful and  serene Arnos Vale is. 



After working at several weddings there I have to say I was a little unsure if it would feel spooky or strange but it honestly doesn't. It really is stunning with the historic Anglican Chapel and Spielman Centre. You also now have the opportunity to marry legally outdoors in a woodland setting at the new Underwood Centre. I'm looking forward to my first woodland wedding soon.

I've also been busy with on the day wedding coordination at some fantastic venues.

Here's a few other shots from some of the venues Sweet & Pretty have visited this year. These include Corsham Town Hall, The Roman Baths, The Four Seasons Hampshire and Bath Guildhall.







Here's a few more fun things I got up to. Here's one from the Orangery at Tortworth Court and a movie night themed candy buffet for a James Bond premiere themed school prom I planned for Broadlands Academy.




Phew! What a great year. I can't wait to get stuck into some amazing weddings and parties in 2014. I have just a few summer weekends free if you need any help planning your event or want yummy candy buffets or favours.
