We only work with people who we know are going to exceed your expectations on your special day. If you need a little extra help Steve from Festoon Events can help prevent endless internet searches, pondering on Pinterest pics, shopping for the right decorations…. Just some of the time-consuming tasks needed to organise a wedding. Fear not, Festoon Events can take care of it, with the expertise, the contacts and the passion to turn your vision in to a reality. From an hour slot to help take pressure off if you’ve hit a brick wall, to managing ‘The Big Day’ to make sure everything goes just as you planned and can be as flexible as you like.
Brian & Christine who run Satin & Lace Weddings Ltd in the Royal Forest of Dean can supply everything apart from your cake, dress or your man (but what they don’t do themselves – they will know someone who can).
Satin & Lace are only a 5-minute drive away from our fantastic Wedding venue. After having a look around Hillside Brewery and our event space, you can go and see how this venue can be decorated in their award winning showroom .With very flexible opening times you can see first-hand the wedding cars that they can offer for hire, their wedding venue styling options and the bespoke stationery and flower packages that they can supply to help make your wedding day extra special and fit for your needs.
We also work with the incredibly talented Zoe & Sam from Your Special Day, who really do help create a wedding with a difference with those finer details. From chair covers and chair sashes to table decorations.
Flowers can help bring your whole wedding day together and enhance not only the your dresses through a well crafted bouquet but also through the venue dressing. Louise runs Country & Formal Flowers/Venue Dressing who have won ‘Best Florist’ in Gloucestershire and the Overall Winner for the 3 Counties Wedding Awards – so you will be in safe hands for all of your flower and floral venue dressing needs.
We have a range of wines wet your whistle. We have a range of wines which can be customised to fit your needs and make sure the wine you want is perfect for your special day.
On of the most important parts of the day is the food and we ensure quality and consistency in everything we do to the people we work with.
