The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

How did you first get your business started?

We were both on holiday in Thailand – drinking cocktails and had a brainwave! We had never come across this concept before so decided to buy a caravan there and then!

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

What makes your business different?

The fact that we aren’t just a standard photobooth, the photobooth is inside the caravan and The Little Creative Caravan is a creative space perfect for any event. The decor has been designed to suit all occasions and genders and offers a wide range of services, but essentially it can be anything you want it to be.

We can be with the client every step of the way and be involved as much as they need us to be. If they need us to create something new or source props and decor then we can do all that too.

Any tip for brides looking into your type of service?

There are lots of photobooths out there but we feel our photobooth is unique and we go the extra mile to make it as personalised to the couple as possible! We can put picture frames of them in the caravan! Do a personalised frames with there married name, make props to suit their theme! Having a photobooth in a caravan means we have a lot more to play with and we can be as creative as you’d like. So our top tip would be to choose us and make the most of what we can offer. Tell us you ideas and we can do our best to create it for you. We love trying new things!

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Any tip for brides looking into your type of service?

When booking a makeup artist take a look at their previous work, their reviews from previous clients & the social media & website, you can tell a lot from these & if this makeup artist is for you.

Check for qualifications & insurance there are so many that don’t check this & in turn the makeup artist they book can’t deliver the desired results or doesn’t turn up! I’ve had many distraught brides call me on the wedding morning when there artist hasn’t arrived.

Have an idea of what makeup you want, if you don’t, have some pictures of styles you like, look at Pinterest & Instagram for ideas & inspiration.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Are there any special offers available for the wedding show?

There will be offers available & goodie bags for those that choose to book on the day.

Our Wedding Videographers

Logo for Our Wedding Videographers

Tell us about you!

I’m Geoff, I’m 30 years young. I started my wedding videography business in 2008 (Our Wedding Videographers) I’m based in Long Eaton, Nottingham. In my free time away from filming/editing I enjoy eating out a lot, playing the drums, going to the gym and seeing live bands.

Photo of Geoff from Our Wedding Videographers

How did you first get your business started?

I’ve had a video camera in my hands since I was 14, I went on to get BSc in Multimedia production at Nottingham Trent Uni. I graduated in 2006 and on a trip to California in 2008 I helped film some weddings with an American wedding videography company, I created the first ‘Our Wedding Videographers’ website on that trip and I’m still filming weddings in 2016.

What makes your business different?

My couples have said that the stand out aspect of my films is the attention to detail with the editing. I am a perfectionist and the highlights film has to be just right. I start each film with a fresh perspective and craft them to be individual and personal to each of my couples.

What do you love most about weddings?

I feel very privileged to have been invited to capture the most intimate and special moment of my couple’s lives, it only happens once and they chose me to film it. Sometimes after I’ve filmed a really great shot I’ll show my couple a sneak peak there & then and the reactions I get are priceless!

Any tip for brides looking into your type of service?

It’s a very personal service; we often start filming in the morning during the prep so I think it’s good to get to know who’s filming you before hand. You’re spending the whole day with your videographer so it’s important to feel comfortable around them.

Two things that are overlooked is the quality of the ‘full length’ film and the actual sound captured on the day. Make sure the ‘full length’ film matches up to the quality of your highlights film. When you’re listening back to your vows and speeches you want to hear the person speaking clearly without the background noise.

Country Garden Weddings

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Tell us all about you, where are you based, what are your loves in life?

 We’re Mary and Philippa, a mother-daughter team from Mayfield, just outside of Ashbourne on the edge of the Peak National Park.

Mary is at the helm of Country Garden Weddings. She’s an expert treasure seeker and manages to source (and even make!) all sorts of gems for our collection of decor and accessories. She got married in July 1977 with the most classic of country garden weddings – the only hitch was that the cake collapsed! Mary’s great loves in life are her family and friends, the valleys of France and the mountains of Scotland and her garden. In another life, she’d have made a superb member of the Groundforce team.

Philippa manages the marketing, social media and the business development side of things – basically, her favourite thing is making new friends! She’s always been the creative and entrepreneurial type, so if you’ve got an idea, the chances are she can make it a reality! She got married in June 2015 and hasn’t looked back since. Philippa’s dearest ambition is to be awarded a Blue Peter badge (sadly not yet forthcoming!) and her great love in life is the theatre. She’s got a flair for the dramatic…

Together, we think we make a good team for all things wedding!

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

How did you first get your business started?

We set up Country Garden Weddings after planning Philippa’s ‘at home’ garden wedding in June 2015. With a healthy dose of fun and imagination, we worked with lots of family and friends to collect and design all sorts of decorations and accessories to create a unique, personal and quirky country garden wedding. We quickly realized that friends and family wanted to borrow the things we had made and collected for their own events, or to come us for advice as they were designing their own weddings. We also realised that we LOVED helping other people bring their wedding day to life, and so over a glass (or two!) of wine, Country Garden Weddings was born!

 The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

What makes your business different?

We like to think that a combination of our unique (and often very quirky!) accessories, our bespoke range and sourcing service, and an incredibly personal approach make us a different kind of company to work with. Every wedding is different, and every marriage is different, and we like to make sure we can help every bride and groom design a wedding day that reflects their individuality and their future together.

We also are very proud of our bespoke service, and love working with brides and grooms to create décor and accessories from scratch that are completely and utterly unique.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

What do you love most about weddings?

Philippa is very clear on what she loves most about weddings, and it’s probably not what you’d expect from someone who’s involved with a décor and accessories business (hint: it’s not the décor and accessories, though they are one of the fun bits of the planning!).

It’s actually the bit in the service where the registrar or vicar asks the couple to declare their commitment to each other, and then asks the family and friends of the bride and groom to support the couple in their marriage. That’s the bit that reminds you that it’s not just two people making a promise, it’s a promise made in front of all the people that are most important to you, and that have supported you in that journey towards each other. You declare in front of them that – despite the ups and downs that will come your way – you’re going to commit to each other for the rest of your lives, and those friends and family in turn promise to support you both to do that. No man is an island, so they say, and no marriage either. It’s a beautiful, wonderful and very inspiring thing.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Any tip for brides looking into your type of service?

Lots of tips, but mostly work with suppliers that really “get” the kind of wedding you’re planning. Not every supplier will specialise in the type of event you’re putting together, and that’s totally cool – but pick someone who understands your vision and will help you realise it!

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Are there any special offers available for the wedding show?

Absolutely! We’re offering all brides and grooms planning a 2016 or 2017 wedding 15% off any order with Country Garden Weddings, as well as the opportunity to win a “mini-moon” in the Peak District!
