VM Bespoke

The Giant Wedding Show

Verity and Matt started VM Bespoke a few years ago as a small project running from their garage while the children were still young and at nursery. Verity was a stay at home mum and Matt was an IT consultant. After seeing how popular some of the products were, we decided to expand in 2015 and focus on weddings. Since then, VM Bespoke has grown significantly with 12 employees currently and are about to open a second workshop in Suffolk in addition to relocating the main workshop in Ripley, Derbyshire to larger premises.

The Giant Wedding Show

We will be supplying around 7% of all weddings in the UK this year with items ranging from personalised wooden place settings to bespoke cake toppers and bunting.

The Giant Wedding Show

All the products on vmbespoke.com are priced sensibly as we understand the financial pressures from a wedding (from first-hand experience!) and we try to make the order process as simple as possible. We pride ourselves on being flexible and always happy to help out with specific requirements or last minute guest changes.

The Giant Wedding Show

All visitors to the stand will be able to take away a sample name along with a discount code to receive 50% off their purchase of wooden names.

Sarah Ellen Jewellery

A jeweller at The Giant Wedding Show

Tell us all about you!

I am a designer jeweller, based in Stoke on Trent, with a love of design; style and timeless fashion.

The Giant Wedding Show, Ashbourne

How did you first get your business started?

Following my degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing I set up my workshop, at home, with the intention of being able to balance work-life and motherhood. Having raised my family I now look forward to nurturing my jewellery business to greater heights.

The Giant Wedding Show, Ashbourne

What makes your business different?

My business is unique because I have combined my love of jewellery design with my passion for fashion and dressmaking, to produce a hallmarked sterling silver collection of Miniature Clothes and Accessories manufactured from sheet silver.

I offer the opportunity for clients to commission a beautiful miniature replica of the bride’s dress, or other wedding attire, in the form of a brooch or pendant; a commemorative memento inspired by their own wedding.

In addition to the Miniature Clothes collection, I also offer the Silver Wedding Hearts which are ideal for thank you gifts. Within the heart shape, I produce the neckline of the dresses worn and the lapels of the gents’ jackets. The shaped hearts lend themselves perfectly to be worn as ear studs; earrings; cufflinks etc., but more importantly, as a romantic reminder of the wedding at which the original clothes were worn.

The Giant Wedding Show, Ashbourne

Kemp & Kemp Catering

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Kemp & Kemp Catering were set up by husband and wife team (Richard & Karen) in 2010 after they suffered 4 weddings in a single year, of their friends where the food was so typical of wedding food – and you know what we’re talking about because we’ve all suffered it – bland, luke-warm, characterless, lacking in colour, excitement or taste.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

They reckoned their combined talents as a creative cook (her) and award winning project manager (him), that they could fill a massive gap in the market by providing simple, FABULOUS, homemade food for weddings.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

They also decided they would never create set menus, never limit their clients in what they could eat and never buy things in (they make everything themselves from scratch). This means that each client has the opportunity to add their own creativity and can personalise their wedding food. They also decided they would never have hidden extras, never charge corkage, and always remain calm, nice, responsive and very, very well organised with zero last-minute panics.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

This approach was born from their natural instincts and both now feel that it was their lack of training in ‘the catering industry’ that meant they could abandon the rule-book, since neither knew what was in the rule book! It has worked too – for three years (and having clocked up close to 300 weddings now) the Company have been voted (by their loyal and well-fed clients) ‘Wedding Caterer of The Year in The West Midlands’ in The Wedding Industry Awards.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

The company is purposefully small so that they never loose the intimacy or attention to detail that comes from knowing every client as a pair of unique individuals, with their own priorities and needs – so for example big caterers fix mass tastings with hundreds eating together – – whereas Kemp & Kemp will cook a selection from each client’s menu, so couples can see precisely what the food will look like and taste like on their day.

The Sugarpod Cakery

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Tell us all about you!

The SugarPod Cakery, situated in Melbourne in South Derbyshire, was just my childhood dream until 2013, when my dream became a reality.  I am a true lover of cake and have been an enthusiastic baker since I can remember and, for many years, held the title of ‘official cake baker’ for all family events.
I have come a long way since my childhood days, having undergone a series of sugarcraft courses, and am now locally renowned for creating charming wedding cakes.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

How did you get started in the wedding business?

In 2006, I was diagnosed with a wheat intolerance. Having tried many of the gluten-free cakes available in supermarkets and experiencing disappointment in them all, I decided to develop my own recipe that would create a cake that was both deliciously moist and tasty and that had a delightful texture.  I now have a range of tried and tested recipes and can bake the finest gluten free cakes that rival any other cake. After developing my range, I was eager to share my bakes with everyone and The SugarPod Cakery was born.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

What makes your business different ?

I am passionate about designing, baking and decorating unforgettable cakes. I love what I do; I care about each and every cake that I make and only ever strive for perfection. I believe that this shines through in my finished products. The SugarPod Cakery is not a high volume business and as I concentrate on just one order at a time, I can be sure that each cake will be made with the upmost care and attention to detail and will be absolutely perfect. Each individual aspect of my wedding cakes are handmade and only the finest ingredients are used to make each cake, so I can be certain that they will taste wonderful. I recognise that such a momentous day in a person’s life deserves a very special cake and that is why I go to great lengths to ensure that every wedding cake is amazing.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

What do you love most about weddings?

I love the chance for people to get together and share in the special day of two people that they love and care about. Unfortunately for me, I generally don’t get to see the reactions of the Bride & Groom and their guests when they see their wedding cake, but I do have a chance to help make a couple’s day so special. I am honoured each and every time that I am chosen as cake maker. I love meeting my new customers and hearing stories of romantic proposals and exciting honeymoon plans. I feel so lucky to be able to be involved in so many life changing days.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Any tip for brides looking into your type of service?

It can be difficult to know where to start when choosing the design of your wedding cake. Start by creating a mood board of colours, patterns and themes that you would like to run through your wedding. Then have a look around at lots of different wedding cake designs and borrow the best features of the designs that you like. It is by mixing and matching these various details, designs and colours that you will be able to start a cake design that suits your own tastes and preferences. As well as being a delicious perk of choosing a wedding cake, it is really important that you taste samples of the cake that you will be serving to your guests. Insist on tasting different flavours, fillings and frostings so that you know what to expect your finished cake to taste like. If it is too difficult to choose just one flavour, it is always possible to choose a different flavour for each tier of your wedding cake.

The Giant Wedding Show, Derbyshire

Anything else you’d like the world to know?

I offer complimentary wedding cake consultations throughout the week. From tiny crumb to tiered cake, we will discuss each part of your cake in detail to ensure that it is as perfect as you ever hoped it would be. You will also have the chance to taste a range of delicious flavours and decide whether you want to choose the more traditional or something with a bit of a twist!

Esther Marie

EstherMarie Makeup

Esther Marie makeup

Tell us all about you.

Hello I’m EstherMarie an Independent Professional Makeup Artist and I just love to inspire your Makeup. From a little girl I will always remember watching my Mom apply her makeup in the mirror and just loved how it enhanced her natural beauty. Most of the time I’m based at my Ashbourne makeup studio doing makeovers and running workshops but love traveling to locations all over the UK. I totally understand that everyone has their own makeup style and its very important that I work with every client to achieve this.

image018

How did you get started in the wedding business?

It’s really simple, I had a client who asked me to do their wedding makeup and I’ve never looked back. I was amazed at all the planning and preparation that was needed and simply loved been part of her big day. I found myself helping her into her dress, taking the stickers off her shoes and held her dress when she had to get in to the car. Working as a makeup specialist on photos shoots, TV and magazines got me more heavily involved in the wedding industry. This is how I truly know how to make you look fabulous on camera without layers of heavily applied makeup.

image019

What makes your business different?

With almost 30 years in the makeup, skincare and fashion industries I’m at an age that I feel I can relate to any age group. This I find valuable when consulting with your wedding party – flower girls, brides, bridesmaids and the mother of the bride and groom. I’m also a Qualified Trainer so very fortunate that my work takes me all over the world. To see how makeup is applied and shades used vary in different Countries it’s very interesting and diverse. I’ve had my own skin problems and know how important it is to allow makeup to promote your best features whilst being comfortable and caring on your skin. In fact, the biggest compliment I get from my clients is that their skin feels like they are not wearing makeup and it lasts all day.

image020

What do you love most about weddings?

Every wedding is unique that’s what I love, starting from looking at photos and creating a look, it’s a very bespoke service and it gives me so much joy to be part of planning and creating it, All of my brides, bridesmaids and other wedding guests still stay in touch. I am very lucky that all of my work is from referrals and I have often been to weddings where the bridesmaids have now become the Bride and I feel like a member of the family. I also love that there are so many passionate people involved in the wedding Industry that are highly professional and really do care.

image021

Any tips for brides looking for a makeup artist?

Weddings are definitely a service that experience and knowledge really do count. Looking at referrals and client comments on social media and website will tell you a lot. Some makeup artists have their own preferred look, so do ask, I can create all looks from Vintage, glamour, to very natural. Insurance ask for a copy, they should have full business insurance and professional qualifications in wedding makeup at the least. Remember that you may book months ahead so make sure its valid for your date. I do believe everyone considering having their makeup done on the wedding day should have a trial. It offers the best service and removes any stress on the day. Finally, photos speak a thousand words, build up a collection of photos of looks and shades you like, sometimes it’s easier to list what you don’t like rather than what you do

image022

Anything else you’d like the world to know?

I’ve only entered one Industry award, in 2014 where I won the Midlands, UK, and Worldwide most popular wedding makeup artist. I was blown away with the hundreds of emails and comments that I received and how many clients’ voted for me I’m on the wedding Industry worldwide role of honour. This is a great privilege as the votes are from other wedding professionals To get your skin in great shape I offer a facial service before your wedding date. I’m fully qualified in eyebrow definition, application of all types of lashes. Also camouflage makeup should you have a scar or tattoo that needs covering.

image023

For the first 100 EstherMarie wedding makeup enquiries receive an EstherMarie handbag brush and bag. Also if you pay your booking fee to secure the date by the 31st May 2016 receive £50 worth of professional makeup, skincare of brushes of your choice from the brands stocked by EstherMarie
