Meet the Supplier: DaisyBell Photography

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help connect you with suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Lancashire based Wedding Photographer DaisyBell Photography.


Tell us more

I am a Lancashire based Wedding Photographer, covering the whole of the UK and destination Weddings. I love colour and happiness and the excitement of all of my couples special days, and I have a relaxed, natural, documentary style approach to photography and I love experimenting with light. 

What makes you different?

My natural and friendly approach I feel really appeals to my couples. I am very laid back and I love the candid style of photography. I will take the more formal photos for Grandma and Grandads to be proud of but I feel my couples really appreciate getting to see all the happy, natural smiles and laughter of their friends and family and special moments they might have missed throughout the day. I stay in the background all day you will not know I am there, waiting for and hunting down those perfect shots.

How did it all start?

I have always had a love of photography since leaving university with a creative design degree in 2006. I started my business after some of my friends asked me to photograph their weddings after seeing my hobby of street photography grow. Since then, my business has grown from strength to strength and I have been fortunate to photography some amazing weddings both in the UK and abroad. 

Why should couples choose you?

I am super friendly and I love to really get to know my couples before their big day as this really helps create a unique relationship between us. We go for coffee at their venue before their wedding day and take a walk around the grounds to discuss where they would like their portrait session. Some of my couples have even become friends! 

Words of wisdom

Take your time and enjoy the run up to your big day. Even though it may seem like a lifetime away, you will never get this time back. Prepare yourself for an amazingly emotional day, cherish every moment and make sure to make memories that will last a life time. Take time out as a couple on your Wedding Day, go for a glass of champagne on your own and just enjoy the moment you have to yourselves.

Meet the Supplier: The Distillery Box

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help connect you with suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce trendy mobile bar company The Distillery Box.


Tell us more

A mobile bar service offering the option of a beautifully converted Richardson horse box which is now a fully functioning bar which can be perfectly placed outside or inside (Marquee/Barn) and/or a rustic style bar which is perfect for indoor events or garden parties. (This comes in either a 6ft or 12ft size).

What makes you different?

We understand how important the bar is for your big day which is why tailor every aspect of the bar creating an everlasting experience.

We will colour co-ordinate the dressing of the bar(s) to ensure its in keeping with your wedding theme. Finally, we feel passionate about our environmental footstep which is why we offer the option of biodegradable plant cups or glassware as well as recycling everything that we use (we even use plant-based ink and recycled materials for our business cards and flyers). 

How did it all start?

Our journey began after working for years in the events and hospitality industry and feeling frustrated that our ideas to improve the services on offer where not being taken on board – so one day we sat down and decided we wanted to do something we were really passionate about. After a couple of weeks of bouncing ideas about we decided to combine our love of working with people with our love of all things distilled, and The Distillery Box was born!

Why should couples choose you?

We have over 25 years experience in customer service and believe in creating an experience that will help realise your vision of your special day or event.

Words of wisdom

Don’t forget it’s YOUR day, you should feel like it is a day that you have created and not a day that has been restricted by too many of … “You can’t have this and you can’t have that” because your wedding day should be full of love, laughter and a happily ever after.

Meet the Supplier: Walsh Films

As part of our brand new series, we’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help you find the perfect suppliers for your wedding day.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce fun-loving & adventurous filmmakers Walsh Films.

What services do you offer?

Cinematic & Personal Wedding Films

What makes you different? 

We build genuine relationships with our couples to create personal wedding films that are unique and driven by their Love Story. They’ll make you laugh, cry and want to get married all over again!

How did it all start? 

It all started when we got engaged! While searching for our perfect wedding, we fell in love with the industry and knew that a move from TV Production to wedding videography would be the perfect next step in our careers!

Why should couples choose you? 

Nervous in front of the camera? Yeah, so are we! We know what it’s like and have a wedding coming up ourselves. So we decided to put making our couples feel comfortable, at the top of our priority list! We stay out of the way, and keep as invisible as possible.

Word of wisdom

Make sure you know who your videographer is (behind the camera)! While it’s important that you like their work, you’ll be spending your wedding day with them! So be sure to get a good grasp of their personality by watching their instagram stories, reading their bio on their website, and definitely jump on a video call with them before you book!

Styled Shoot

A Beautiful Boho Chic Shoot at Worcester Glamping

Photography: Tanya Flannagan Photography

Tanya coordinated a boho chic styled shoot in the beautiful setting of Worcester Glamping. Keeping in theme with pretty pinks, gold candles and organic dyed fabrics – any boho bride would love this whimsical combination!  

“As being “boho bride” is on trend right now, and with the ever growing market of ‘chilled’ and ‘relaxed’ weddings – I wanted to create an idea that you can keep the both classy and elegant look, but with a slight twist in the idea.”

Fun pops of colour, rustic and pretty stationery and a gorgeous bespoke denim jacket provided an unique twist on this shoot that any fun loving girl would totally love.

“We had lovely Perspex signage outside, and organic and vegan dyed cloths for the top table decoration – making the details really stand out against the floristry and centrepieces. Not to mention the amazing bouquets and hoops –  which are slightly different to the usual bouquets for the bridesmaids, giving it a nice little quirky variation to the bride!”

Subtle and elegant bridal makeup complimented the theme beautifully. It was timeless and pretty. Stunning accessories added a touch of elegance.

We personally love the food element of this shoot. Luxury tasters including a mixture of canapés, cookies and fruit platters are a treat for the eyes.

“The food was super exciting. It gives an idea that you can add lots of little touches! Of course, the cake was a talking point on the day!”

“I had so much fun on this shoot and had a blast creating a fun, party kind of vibe – but also super sweet. I thought all of this would go well with my light and airy wedding editing, to make it pretty and romantic too.”

You can view our line up of Wedding Fayres here.

Use Pinterest for Inspiration

Pinterest is a great tool for inspiration, especially if you’re willing to get your hands dirty and DIY a few bits & bobs! Start browsing and save some favourites.

Start a Healthy Eating & Exercise Program

If you want to lose some weight or simply tone up for your wedding then why not form a weekly plan on small changes to start right away. You and a friend could go to the gym together, or perhaps some evening power walks.

Introduce / Keep on Top of your Skincare Routine

Makeup artists will always say that your base is so important to achieving a flawless makeup look. A good skincare routine is key. Seek professional advise from a skincare expert as to what you should do to tailor to your specific skincare needs.

Decide on a Gift List

If you have a specific gift list you would like your guests to follow, make one available by enclosing it with your wedding invitations or display on your wedding website if you have one.

And finally… enjoy every minute of your wedding day because it will go so fast! The important thing is that you make all the decisions for you as a couple and not to worry about anyone else.

Meet the Supplier: Precious Pets Micro ID

Introducing our brand new ‘Meet the Supplier’ series. We’re so exited to be interviewing a selection of fantastic wedding specialists. We take pride in recommending the finest in the industry, and hope this series will help you find the perfect suppliers for your day.

We’re thrilled to introduce Precious Pets Micro ID.

Meet the Supplier: Precious Pets Micro ID

What services do you offer?

Exclusive Wedding Pet Chaperone Service

Couples would love to have their dog (fur baby) attend one of their most wonderful and exciting days of their life but struggle with logistics to ensure all of their friends and family members don’t miss out on any part of their wedding day.

This is why our Exclusive Wedding Pet Chaperone Service is so popular.  We plan, co-ordinate and take away all the stress for the happy couple so their dog can be a big part of their wedding day! 

Whether they would like their fur baby to be their ring bearer, best man, bridesmaid or just attend for an hour for the wedding photographs, we are here to make all of their wedding dreams a reality.  

We do not offer set packages as every wedding and their pet care needs are different.  We create a tailor made package to meet the couple’s requirements so that they have complete peace of mind on their special day. 

Wedding Day Pet Sitting

A great alternative to our Chaperone Service …

Not every dog is suitable to attend the wedding due to venues restrictions, their temperament or well being. 

We have also found that friends or family members struggle with pet care whilst attending the wedding.  Some guests have to travel a long distance and want to bring their dog along but again, struggle with pet care options, as they don’t want to miss out on any part of the wedding day.

Meet the Supplier: Precious Pets Micro ID

What makes you different? 

Dog arriving in style to the wedding!

We are popular with couples due to the quirky additions which make our Exclusive Wedding Pet Chaperone Service unique!

Couples love the concept of their dog arriving in style in their own wedding car/vehicle.  They can choose either a Mini Cooper or a Brand New Professional Converted Dog Van.

What is even more special is that the car/van is decorated with our specially patented designed wedding car ribbons and bows!

Dog Ring Bearer mechanism!

We have created a simple but proven mechanism whereby their dog delivers the rings down the aisle in a safe, secure and fun manner.

How did it all start? 

Precious Pets Micro ID is a husband and wife team established Pet Care Service.

In 2018, we decided it was the right time for Adrian to change career direction and pursue his lifelong dream of working with dogs and to train as a self-employed Professional Dog Grooming Stylist.

After three months of commuting to Manchester, Adrian became a fully qualified Dog Grooming Stylist. To subsidise his grooming services and income we decided to set up a number of additional pet care services which included dog walking, puppy visits, cat care at home and mobile micro chipping.

2017/2018 was a very popular time for our friends and family getting married and who all owned dogs.  Kennels was definitely not an option for their dogs on their wedding day, so rather than a gift, they asked us to care for and chaperone their dogs at the wedding, which, of course, we did! 

One evening, whilst putting our business strategy together, we decided to put together a Wedding Pet Chaperone Service and commence a large-scale market research campaign with pet owners and brides/grooms by attending wedding shows and venue showcases and the creation of social media polls.  

The feedback we received was unbelievable and extremely positive. It became very apparent to us that there was a large gap in the market for our Exclusive Wedding Pet Service in the wedding industry, within our local areas and the UK.

It was also very clear that kennels were not an option for many couples (as we had discovered with our friends and family), as the dog was considered to be a precious and important member of their family.  They wanted them to be part of their wedding day but everyone who would normally care for their dog would be pre-occupied either getting ready for the big day or actually attending the wedding. 

So we launched our Exclusive Wedding Pet Chaperone Service (Dogs at Weddings) and the rest is history.  We have been overwhelmed by all the bookings, couples’ testimonials and wedding venue collaborations.

Words of wisdom

If you are considering having your dog at your wedding, check out these Dog Friendly Wedding Top Tips

Important Considerations:

  • If you wish to include your fur baby, ensure that you book a dog friendly wedding venue or one with an outside area for photographs
  • Ensure that all guests will be aware that a dog is attending the wedding, in case of allergies. A lovely idea is to send out a ‘save the date’ card featuring a photo of your dog
  • You may wish your dog to simply be a guest of honour at your wedding but if you would like them to play a specific role in the ceremony, think carefully about how this will work. Popular choices are a dog ring bearer or a dog flower girl but ensure that your pet has the right temperament to cope with all the attention
  • Rehearse as much as you can with your dog before the big day and leave ample time to practice during the actual rehearsal
  • If you are considering a special dog wedding collar or accessory, make sure that it is safe and comfortable for your dog. Certain flowers or foliage can be poisonous to dogs so it is vital to check
  • Let your wedding photographer know that you are planning on bringing your dog to your wedding. This will ensure that they are ready to capture your adorable pet in action and come up with some great fun ideas for wedding photos
  • At busy times our wedding pet chaperoning service is very much in demand. To avoid disappointment we would advise getting in touch as soon as possible. We would love to chat to you about your exciting plans and how we can help you have a real furrytail wedding!

How To Prepare for a Wedding Fayre: A Guide for Exhibitors (Part 1)

We were thrilled to be guest speakers at the recent Wedding Industry Supplier Network event. We spoke about how to get the most out of exhibiting at a Wedding Fayre, sharing all our insider tips including the essential dos and don’ts.

Following this talk and the great response from the event, we decided to create a series of blog posts highlighting the most helpful points.

Each post in this series will cover the following topics:

  • How To Prepare for a Wedding Fayre
  • The Dos and Don’ts of Exhibiting at a Wedding Fayre
  • How To Increase Chances of Bookings at a Wedding Fayre

This post is all about preparing for a Wedding Fayre, and what you can do to ensure every box is ticked to give you the best possible chance of securing those all important bookings.

So, you’ve signed up to attend a Wedding Fayre… now what?

Branding & Literature

Branding is super important because not only is it what makes a memorable impression, but it allows your customers and clients to know what to expect from your company. Your logo is the most important element of your branding because it is the face of the company, so it should be memorable and used across your promotional material. Colours and themes should also remain consistent throughout.

I would strongly advise having the following literature & promotional material featured at a Wedding Fayre:

  • A large promotional banner
  • Business Cards
  • Flyers / leaflets with a special offer or incentive included

I’ve seen exhibitors offer a sweet treat or incentive with their business card attached. This is a very good idea to help Brides remember you, and you’ll stand out for all the best reasons.

It’s also a good idea to have a treat available for children as they’re often brought to Wedding Fayres, and this is always massively appreciated by the parents because it keeps them quiet!

All the items you hand out should include your contact details and website to make it easy for Brides to get in touch following the event.

Stall Appearance

When you are exhibiting alongside top industry professionals and your competitors, you must at all times strive to outshine them. Your exhibition space should be eye catching and completely irresistible for visitors to approach.

It’s essential that visitors recognise the kind of services you offer as soon as they see your stall. Your key message should strike a chord with your audience. It should summarise what you are offering and why your consumer needs it. There are often 30+ different exhibitors at a single Wedding Fayre, so it’s very easy for brides to get distracted by the variety. Don’t leave them confused about what you do because they’ll give up guessing very quickly.

It’s well worth checking with the organiser what is already included with the purchase of your space. More often than not, you’ll find that a trestle table and table cloth are provided for you.

I’d highly recommend setting up a mock stall at home. Being prepared in advance to the show means you’ll have time to play around with your space, and you’ll have a list of exactly everything you need to bring on the day, avoiding bringing any unnecessary items.

Goody Bags

Goody bags are something we know Brides love. We offer the first 100 Brides a goody bag on entry to all our shows. These goody bags are filled with special offers and discounts from exhibitors, as well as other treats including the latest copy of a top bridal magazine.

Take the opportunity to include your items in the goody bags. We don’t charge a fee and 100 Brides will walk away from the event with your details which is so valuable.

Special Offers / Incentives

One of the top reasons why Brides like to visit Wedding Fayres is to make the most of the exhibitor special offers and discounts.

Having a booking incentive at a Wedding Fayre can hugely increase chances of bookings, so it’s important you think carefully about what you could offer. If you don’t want to discount the price of your service or package then you could throw in a freebie instead. Either way this acts as a great incentive and will encourage visitors to engage in conversation.

I’d recommend extending your special offer for up to a week after the Wedding Fayre because some Brides prefer to book after the event once they’ve had a chance to look at your services in more detail.
