As 2023 draws to a close I thought it was time to share some of the wonderful weddings we have helped to style over the past year, styled shoots we have been a part of & what we have planned for 2024!
We have styled 58 weddings & provided prop hire and linen hire to many more. It has been a dream to be a part of so many amazing weddings and help bring your visions to life.
We have worked across a variety of Isle of Wight wedding venues. From styling blank canvas marquees to woodland ceremonies and beautiful hotels to rustic barns. There really is a huge range of wedding venues on the Isle of Wight and it gives our couples the opportunity to pick what really suits them as a couple. It also gives me a wide range of creative experience, I really do love it!
My wedding stationery design has really taken off this year. I've been creating a range of modern designs that incorporate luxury card and extra finishing touches to make it bespoke to you and your wedding design. I'm working on wedding stationery with lots of couples next year and can't wait to get creating!
What am I looking forward to in 2024?
First up - I love wedding fair season!
My must attends for couples planning are:
Firstly at Northwood House on the 13th & 14th January, make sure to book your free slot. We are styling tables for this fair along with showcases from a range of selected suppliers.
Secondly the Wight Events wedding show at Medina Leisure Centre on the 28th January. This fair always ensures a wide variety of suppliers and is a great opportunity to window shop.
Thirdly we will be styling tables at the East Afton Farmhouse wedding fair on the 18th February. A great opportunity to see over 80 suppliers exhibit as well as view a stunning venue.
There is also a brilliant fair by Wight Wedding Days on the 3rd March at Ventnor Botanic Gardens but we sadly won't be attending because we'll be having some family time in the sunshine!
Secondly - Styled Shoots!
I absolutely adore the creativity that styled shoots bring. It's a brilliant opportunity to bring creatives together to do what they do best whist curating a vision together. I've got a stunning one planned for January... watch this space!
Thirdly (and most importantly) our couples big days!
The reason for all of our hard work is to give our couples the beautiful weddings they've been envisioning. I have some absolutely stunning weddings to come in 2024, in some of the Isle of Wight's best wedding venues, I cannot wait to bring them to life.
On a personal note - I'm planning some exciting new aspects to bring to Finishing Touches for the 2024/25 wedding season to continue growing. I cannot wait to share more details with you! Make sure you are following us on social media to keep up to date with all of our news.
