Many of our brides contact us immediately after the wedding desperate to keep hold of their bouquets because they love them so much. We can't preserve them ourselves but these lovely people at Precious Petals can. They are masters at preserving and framing bouquets. They will arrange collection of your bouquet and you can choose from a huge range of different ways you may want your bouquet to be arranged and preserved whether it be in a frame or a single flower in a paperweight. Tel: 01256882422.


Neil and Kevin provided the music for our own wedding and I couldn’t have picked anyone better. In fact they were so good I’m using them again for my daughter’s 21st! They couldn’t have done more for us and even acted as Master of Ceremonies. Their prices were brilliant too. Neil McManus is a highly experienced, professional mobile DJ and presenter utilising quality audio and lighting equipment to deliver the perfect party atmosphere for weddings, private functions and corporate events for all ages and tastes. Kevin Edmond is a talented singer with a very wide and versatile repertoire, from swing classics to rock legends, suited to a wide variety of events including corporate and private functions, dinner dances, balls and seasonal parties.


Wayne is a wedding singer based in Lancashire. He has been entertaining people for over 18 years as a wedding singer and singing at corporate functions and special events around the globe. From singing in the background while the day progresses to having the whole wedding party bouncing on the dance floor, Wayne will deliver a wedding entertainment package to suit your needs.


Mum and daughter Carole and Sandra have built up an incredible reputation for customer care and attention to detail. They helped me design my own wedding dress based on a bridesmaid’s dress which Carole basically took apart and re-made. She even made a beautiful jacket to go over the dress. They have a great selection of dresses and accessories and make you feel soooooo comfortable. No need to be an anxious bride in their capable hands.


If you are needing bows and chair covers look no further than the lovely and incredibly professional Joanne Smith. Superb quality, huge choice of colours and styles, and incredible service.


The Table Linen Company came to our rescue for our wedding. With one day’s notice they managed to get table cloths and napkins to the venue for us. Superb service.


There are lots of brilliant wedding photographers out there but I particularly love Lottie's style. This is how she describes herself....

"I’m influenced by styles and fashions in wedding photography, but what I do on a wedding day is just my reaction to what happens on your day. I’m an emotional soul who just loves weddings, I have a sense of humour, a very informal approach, and can also be a little quirky. I’m not a trained photographer by any means. I am inspired by details, flowers, shoes, dresses and the visual feast that is wedding!"


And another of my favourite photographers is Kerry Woods. Check out her website. She is booked up a couple of years in advance though so contact her soon! This is what she has to say.....

"Hello, I'm Kerry and I'm an award winning documentary wedding photographer.  I'm fun, laid back, organised, patient and a little bit mad.  I love all things wedding and even though I am currently shooting 80 a year, I still burst through your door on the wedding morning as if it's my first."


For natural, relaxed wedding photography throughout the North West give award-winning photographer Mick a call.

"I photograph weddings with a natural style – capturing the fun and the emotion your special day brings. No awkward or cheesy poses, just stylish documentary wedding photography you’ll cherish for years to come. 90% of everything you see on my website are real moments; captured live and unstaged."


For bridal, evening, party, and prom dresses. This shop in Wigan has a huge range.
