Anyone feeling hungry?  I know, I know, after banging on about keeping New Year resolutions this morning, I go and put a whole load of beautiful sugar in front of you at just after 3pm.  I’m a very bad friend

I’m a very good wedding blogger though, as it’s my job to tell you all about the best suppliers in the business, available in your local area.  Job done.  North West brides: wedding cake:  sorted.

Let’s meet the lady and Brides Up North Featured Supplier behind these delectable confections, the lovely Liz at The Little Velvet Cake Company

P.s. Let Liz know that you found her through Brides Up North and there’s a 10% discount in it for you!

The Little Velvet Cake Company

Hi Liz!  Tell Brides Up North about The Little Velvet Cake Company, yourself and your experience?

Well I wasn’t always a cake maker. In my former life I had completed a PhD in Environmental Chemistry and then I was an environmental consultant, working for an engineering company on big urban regeneration projects. Previous to that, in my early twenties, I had worked in theatres, where I was everything from usherette to stage manager.

I had never really thought about baking, until I jumped off the career ladder to stay at home and look after my two sons. It all started with a few fun baking sessions making cupcakes with the kids, but it soon got serious when I started nudging the boys away so I could do it all myself. They lost interest but I kept going, until one day I found myself offering to make a friend’s wedding cake. I had never iced a cake before, but fancied having a go after watching Lorraine Pascale doing it on her television show. That was it, I was bitten by the sugar craft bug!

I also loved the idea of having my own business based at home, and this was perfect. For me it’s the perfect combination of technical and creative skills. I’m completely self-taught, I got books out of the library, looked techniques up on the internet, and spent a lot of time playing with sugar crafting equipment. Everything I had learned in my previous jobs seemed to give me a good grounding, I don’t even mind the endless washing up as it’s nothing compared to washing glassware in the analytical laboratory where I did my PhD!

The Little Velvet Cake Company

Tell us about your cakes?  What finishes and flavours are available?

My role of creating perfect and personal centre pieces for something as important as a couple’s wedding day is a big responsibility, and so I work closely with each couple to make sure they get the perfect cake for them. Consequently I end up making a wide range of cakes, but I do think they all have the unique ‘Little Velvet’ style about them. I concentrate on clean, elegant designs that are well balanced and never unnecessarily fussy.

Many brides have quite a fixed idea of what they want their cake to be like, others need a bit of inspiration before they decide what they want, either way I try to accommodate this by relating the cake design to the big picture so it complements the styles, colours and textures used elsewhere in their wedding.

I’m going to get a bit technical here, but where cake finishes are concerned there are two main types (forgive me, I’m such a cake geek!). I do traditional ‘rounded’ edges for that classic, smooth wedding cake look, which is very traditional. These cakes are very natural and romantic looking. I also like to do ‘sharp’ edges, which has a more contemporary look where the sides are ultra-straight with a sharp edge along the top. The tiers on these cakes are typically deeper, so the overall look is tall and elegant.

The more tiers you have, the more flavours you can go for! I do all the standard flavours, mostly vanilla and chocolate sponge, but good old faithful fruit cake is often requested for at least one of the tiers. There is demand for less traditional flavours though, with carrot cake and red velvet cake being popular. Last year I made a cake that was not just lemon coloured, but all 3 tiers were lemon flavoured too. I used plenty of zesty lemon curd and butter cream to fill it, and it smelt amazing. This is the beauty of having a bespoke cake… you get to decide your own flavours.

The Little Velvet Cake Company

Tell us about your ingredients?

I’m very fussy when it comes to baking ingredients. I always buy the same organic flour, because I trust it to give me consistent results. Eggs have to be free range, and butter has to be good quality. I believe that if you cut corners with the ingredients, it will show in the baked product. My ingredients are tried and tested, so I’m confident that my cakes will taste the best they can. For example, the quality of cocoa powder varies enormously, so I am brand loyal and get a good quality Fair-trade make that is head and shoulders better than the others. After all, it doesn’t matter how good a cake looks, nobody wants their guests to be disappointed when they eat it.

Do you cater for special diets?

Yes, I have made cakes without gluten, nuts or dairy products on many occasions. However, my kitchen isn’t gluten free, and not entirely nut free either, so I always state that there is a risk of cross contamination although nuts and gluten free products are stored separately and I take precautions to make sure cross contamination is avoided (again, the analytical laboratory experience comes in handy)!

Last year I made a ‘naked cake’ with gluten free products (which is tiered sponge cake without the icing. This one was filled with jam and fresh cream and dusted with icing sugar). These cakes have to be baked perfectly even and I was a bit nervous using the gluten free flour as it can be tricky sometimes. It turned out great though, you wouldn’t have known it wasn’t the usual wheat flour.

What are the most popular flavours?

Vanilla is the most popular flavour, closely followed by chocolate. I think these are the crowd pleasers.

Tea Time. Supplier Showcase: Wedding In A Teacup PLUS Exclusive 10% Discount For Wedding Blog Readers

December 11th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Wedding In A Teacup

Did you catch our discussion post on wedding favours yesterday afternoon?  After this afternoon’s feature, I think a few more of you might be “in favour”…

If you came along to one of the blog’s fabulous Brides Up North Wedding Exhibitions this year, you will have found some very gorgeous little branded treats in your VIP goody bag, courtesy of our Featured Supplier Wedding In A Teacup.  We do hope that you liked them! (If you missed our Brides Up North Wedding Exhibition season in 2013 – how could you?! – or simply fancy doing it all over again, click here for details of our calendar in 2014… and to get your hands on one of those goody bags). 

Wedding In A Teacup is based down South, but ships their pretty packages (and they are pretty, let me tell you) all over the UK, so whether you live in Leeds or East Lothian, they have it covered.  You’ll be dying to get into their online store and see their treasures for yourselves (especially with an exclusive 10% discount for Brides Up North readers when you enter the code UPNORTH10 at checkout!), so let’s meet the lady behind it all…

Wedding In A Teacup

Tell us a little bit about yourself and how Wedding In A Teacup got started?

Hi, my name is Hester; I live in Brighton and run Wedding in a Teacup from an office near the Pavilion. A little over two years ago I was in my spare bedroom, surrounded by boxes of wedding goodies, staring at the computer screen and biting my nails over whether my tiny company was ready to ‘go live’ yet…

Nine months before that, I’d been working in the fashion industry; I felt I had a good grounding in what was needed to run a small company; I dreamt of going it alone. But what could I do that hadn’t been done to death? Then the man in my life suddenly proposed, and when I got over the shock, I set about planning our nuptials! We’d agreed to get married that same summer so I had to move fast. I got addicted to wedding blogs showcasing real–life brides who’d created their big day with originality and flair, but when I searched myself for the products to re-create some of these ideas I was met with not much more than the usual plastic, white, diamantes and organza…

Wedding In A Teacup

That’s when the lucky penny dropped! Surely there were other brides-to-be like me, slogging round vast on-line warehouses, desperate to find the kinds of quirky, stylish, original goodies I was hunting for. I took the risk, and started Wedding in a Teacup. So far it’s paid off wonderfully. The only downside is that my husband will insist on taking the credit for the original idea…

Wedding In A Teacup

Tell us about Wedding In a Teacup, your mantra and what you are all about?

One of my main aims was to create a great place to visit online – one that will inspire and excite brides to be. We take lots of care with our blogs, blurb and photos – we want to give inspiring, helpful, honest service that way. I would never stock something I didn’t like, just because I thought it might sell. And I’m a lot of a perfectionist. For example, I’ve searched for ‘wedding party’ mugs for ages and I’ve only just found the ones that are ‘right’!

I put a lot of emphasis on ethics and sustainability, buying recycled and made in the UK when I can. We also love the idea that our goodies aren’t throwaway; it’s great to keep using the tea-light holders that glittered at your wedding feast, or to transform a noticeboard into a seating plan board, and then take it home afterwards, steeped in memories of your special day.

Wedding In A Teacup

What sort of products are available to buy in your online shop?

We reckon we stock just about everything apart from the cake, the ring, and the dress! We have a vibrant Stationery section, with unusual and original invitations. Favours are big for us – we think the divine is in the detail, and that those little finishing touches are all-important. Brides love the personalised touch, and many of our favours carry the couples’ names and dates. We’re thrilled that we’ve made the final for the Wedding Ideas Awards 2014 in the category of Best Special Touches!

Wedding In A Teacup

Our Gifts section is eclectic; some hand made for us, or specifically for the customer, some bought in; and we search out unusual and fabulous decorations everywhere we can.

But maybe what sets us most apart is our strong “Get Creative’ section, where the creative, handy bride can find everything she needs to fashion her day, her way – and get support from us in how to do it.

Wedding In A Teacup

Wedding In A Teacup

Tell us a little about your favourite products…

Favours? I’m going to choose the personalised badges here, because they really punch above their weight! As place settings, then ice breakers, and then lovely take home favours, they’re original and fun. Whenever we make a batch of badges, we goo over “nanna’ and “emily and bump’ and giggle over the ruder ones – you can really picture how a wedding is going to be, from the list of names you get sent.

Wedding In A Teacup

Stationery? I’ll shamelessly flag up our two new invitations here. I’m delighted to add a fourth member to our unique charm invitations – this one with a lucky horseshoe charm. And in complete contrast, our stylish blackboard invitation, complete with lover’s arrow.

Wedding In A Teacup

Décor? We’re currently gunning for paper – it’s light, bright, economical and ethical too! From candle bags that spell out the couple’s names to bold tassel garlands, from cute little owls to retro chains and bunting, we’re covered in paper …..

Wedding In A Teacup

Gifts? We’re very happy that our jewellery section keeps growing. We search out lovely sterling silver necklaces and then design a classy and exclusive card to present them on; for the bridesmaids, the flower girl, or just that someone special, all presented in a lovely brown kraft gift box.

Wedding In A Teacup

Get Creative? It was a big thrill when we realised how versatile the old-fashioned doily was, and found the perfect NY supplier of some very stylish ones in white and metallic! Plus we’re keen on ribbon and are currently adding four fab new designs– seascape, magic keys, music notes and real bees – to this section.

Wedding In A Teacup

Wedding In A Teacup

What is your bestselling product?

It is hard to pin down one bestseller as things seem to go in waves! All of our personalised favours (seed packets, stickers, jam jars and badges) do very well, and our lovebirds stationery design is a firm favourite.

Wedding In A Teacup

Wedding In A Teacup

We love your “Inspire Me” section – tell us how that works?

Thank you! Themes began to emerge with the products we were choosing and creating – seaside, love birds, travel and so on – so we grouped these together under suitable headings. Not at all ‘matchy’, just a place where brides can browse and get ideas for how a light-hearted, themed effect might be created and see all of these products presented together. It’s also where we showcase our growing classy hen do collection!

Wedding In A Teacup

Tell us a little about your blog and what Brides can find there?

We really love doing the blog, and wish we had time to do it more often! It’s really what our site is all about – collating ideas and inspirational images that suggest ways to use and present our products. One of my favourites are the mood boards – it must be my fashion background! I always create a mood board before designing a new invitation – it inspires me and spurs me on. Increasingly, brides are kindly sending us photos of their day which is such a thrill, and I love blogging these too. We also give recipes and creative DIY ideas, we’ve written about the history of the horseshoe in weddings, and we’ve shared our passion for bees! Basically, we hope our blogs give ideas, share information, and are fun to read!

Wedding In A Teacup

Wedding In A Teacup

What stationery and décor trends have been popular in 2013 and what trends do you see emerging in 2014 and beyond?

I’m not a huge believer in following trends on your wedding day – it’s your day so it should reflect you as a couple, not what is trendy at the time! Having said that, there are always new things that come through and take off simply because they are gorgeous and a great idea. I think tassel garlands will overtake bunting in 2014, and that the handmade vibe will still be going strong; because the personal touch will never go out of fashion!

Wedding In A Teacup

Can you do a discount for Brides Up North readers?

Yes! We can offer 10% off for your readers – simply enter the code UPNORTH10 at checkout. 

What can Brides Up North expect when they use your site and service?

They can expect to be inspired and delighted, to browse with ease and pleasure, and then to order with confidence. Any questions they have, they can expect a fast and helpful response. Then they can expect a beautifully wrapped parcel of goodies to land on their doorstep!

Wedding In A Teacup

To Favour Or Not To Favour? That Is The Question.

December 10th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Wedding Favours - Lissa Alexandra Photography

As it’s the season for giving, our regular guest blogger Rachel is back to talk wedding favours. 

An age-old wedding tradition, favours originated in Italy in the form of five sugar almonds which were given to guests as a thank you for attending the wedding and as a symbol of good luck. Each sweet almond was said to represent a different quality that the couple would hopefully experience as husband and wife – health, wealth, happiness, fertility and longevity.

But just like many other wedding traditions, the favour has evolved over the years with many of today’s couples ditching dated sugar almonds in place of creative and individual gifts for their guests.  Rachel makes the case for tradition. 

Wedding Favours - Lissa Alexandra Photography

She says:  Just this week a friend of mine was telling me how a male colleague, who is due to get married next year, was having a moan about wedding favours.  His outburst went a little something like this: “Now she’s talking about what favours we should get the guests – I tell you what favour I’m getting them, a three course meal, wine and evening buffet – what more do they want?”

He makes a point I suppose, but done right carefully chosen favours can add an extra element of enjoyment and/or serve as a wonderful reminder of the big day.

Wedding Favours - Chris Milner Photography

The budget will obviously need to be taken into consideration when selecting favours and couples will have to decide if they want to buy, make and/or personalize their gifts.  Whether couples choose to blow the budget on special keepsakes, or take the cheaper novelty route, there are plenty of options to choose from (without an almond in sight):

Something to Eat

Perfect for food lovers this is a simple idea that can be as thrifty or indulgent as couples like.  A tasty treat is always greatly received by guests and can be easily personalized to fit in with the chosen colour scheme or theme.

Popular choices include handmade chocolates, cake pops, macaroons and Pic-A-Mix style bags of sweets.

Another foodie option is for couples to make and jar their own preserves such as jam, marmalade, chutney or honey, which can be individually decorated and stamped with the wedding date.

Mints served in personalised tins puts an individual twist on a classic idea while movie lovers can opt for popcorn served in bespoke containers.

(For those really wanting to impress their guests, I recently came across a company that will decorate gingerbread men to look like your guests, or alternatively you can order a DIY kit to give it a go yourself. While this involves a fair amount of organization the reaction from your guests will be well worth it.)

Wedding Favours - Peter Boyd Photography

Something to Drink

This can be a way of buying your guests a drink without having to offer a free bar. Brides pick miniature bottles of their favourite drinks to give to the ladies while grooms choose their top tipple to give to the men. Popular choices include mini bottles of wine, spirits or champagne. Miniature bottles of alcohol can also double up as name places by tying a simple name tag around the bottle neck with decorative ribbon. For those who would prefer a non-alcoholic option, fruit teas fit in well with organic and country style weddings while specialty coffee will be greatly appreciated by guests the morning after the wedding. Those with a sweet tooth may prefer to give cocoa or hot chocolate mix.

Wedding Favours - Peter Boyd Photography

Something to Grow

An ideal option for eco-friendly brides and grooms who want to give their guests a lasting reminder of their big day. Top choices include pretty packets of wildflower seeds or tree saplings for guests to take away and plant in their gardens. An alternative for foodies is to give locally grown herbs planted in recyclable glass jars dressed up with a ribbon.

Something to Break the Ice

Some couples like to mix up their guests on different tables encouraging them to get to know one another, in which case icebreaker favours are perfect. This type of favour is also ideal for couples who don’t take life too seriously and want to inject some humour into their special day. Options include old-school origami fortune tellers, table trivia and quirky wedding badges with statements such as ‘I love the groom’, ‘I’m next’ and ‘The bouquet is mine’. Couples choosing to have a fun photo booth at their wedding may want to give favours in the form of masks or fancy dress items which double up as great props for the booth.

Wedding Favours - Petals & Peonies

Something for the Little Ones

A couple’s choice of favour might not suit all ages so separate gifts for younger guests may be required. While sweet treats generally always go down well with children it’s a good idea to give a favour that will keep little ones entertained during less active parts of the day such as the meal and the speeches. A goody bag including a small present, puzzles and colouring pencils is a great solution.

Wedding Favours - JP Photography

Something to Keep

For some couples the whole idea of a wedding favour is to give a gift that will act as a lasting reminder of the big day. Popular options include personalised tea towels, coasters, mugs and pens featuring the couples name and wedding date.

A mixed CD made up of songs played during the wedding day is perhaps one of the best keepsake favours that will instantly evoke memories of the wedding.

For something a little different, couples tying the knot during the festive period could give a personalised Christmas tree decoration that will provide a reminder of the special day year after year.

Wrap Yourself In Love! Supplier Showcase: Pashmina Rainbow

August 15th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Pashmina Rainbow

.

.

Today’s post was a bit of a funny one for me to put together, not least because that’s my own mug staring back at me from most of the pictures, and also because I am interviewing my best friend, Jane, about a little project that we decided to work on together what seems like eons ago now!

.

Whilst Brides Up North (the blog, brand, events and related products) takes up 99% of my working time whole life, I sometimes put my beloved wedding brand aside to help Jane out with a pretty little labour of love that we like to call Pashmina Rainbow, a gorgeous online shop stocking soft scarves in all the colours of the rainbow, borne out of a frustration that dates back decades.

.

It seemed that whenever I wanted a coloured wrap for a race day, wedding or evening event, I just couldn’t find what I was looking for – something affordable, complimentary, of good quality and that would just ruddy well match my outfit!  Many market visits turned up poor quality products and the high street was almost as bad, just ten times more expensive: it was the pashmina problem

.

After failing to zip up my suitcase after a rather large haul of a year’s personal supply of rainbow wraps one summer in Spain, I aired my frustrations to my bessie, and voiced the immortal words “Gah!  It would be so much easier if we could just buy these online!”.

.

And with that, an idea took seed… so I’ll pass you to Jane, who sits at the day to day helm of our lovely little online shop.  But before I do, let me assure you that the pashmina problem has been solved.  Forever.

.

Hurrah! 

.

.

Colourful pashmina wraps - Pashmina Rainbow by India Hobson Weddings

.

.

Jane says:  As girls on the go, Julia and I love fast fashion and mixing up our outfits with bright accessories.  We love the versatility that the viscose pashmina offers: you can wear it as a scarf, a shawl or a wrap, dressed up or down, in all seasons, at home and abroad. It will literally take you anywhere, and won’t break the budget!

.

We know from experience that finding that perfect colour of pashmina wrap in a one simple shade can be difficult: We’ve both spent many hours trawling the shops and markets (at home and abroad – much to the disgust of our husbands and holiday companions!), and often been disappointed by price, choice and quality.  We spent almost a whole year comparing samples and searching for a reliable UK stockist before launching our online pashmina shop

Pashmina Rainbow was created to offer wraps in a spectrum of colours – with new shades being added all of the time – to complement and match our customer’s outfits… not to mention their budgets.  It was vital to us that Pashmina Rainbow provided quality products at affordable prices.

Candy Floss Kisses! Supplier Showcase: Love Is Sweet Company PLUS 15% OFF For Wedding Blog Readers!

August 1st, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Yesterday, after a virtuous early morning workout at the pool, I took a two mile detour on the way home to stop at the corner shop for a mix-up.  Not so virtuous, I know, but maybe there is something psychological left over from my swimming lessons days which tells me I need candy just after swimming lengths!

.

Personal psychoanalysis aside, one thing is for sure – I am a big sweetie fan – so when I met Featured Supplier Rachael of Love Is Sweet Company at the last Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition, I knew it was going to be a lasting relationship.  Rachael was even kind enough to fuel my North East Tweet Up wedding industry event with sugar spun candy floss (she was a big hit!) and I can’t recommend her sweet services enough.

.

Let’s meet the lady holding all the love hearts.

.

.

How did Love Is Sweet Company begin?

.

Love is Sweet Company began after planning my own wedding. I absolutely loved being involved with the wedding industry! I was just finishing my BA (hons) degree in Textiles and Surface design at the time, so thought I’d put this to use in creating decorative and beautiful sweet displays.

.

Sweet bars were fast becoming the new trend for brides and grooms to be. But I found there was a gap for really decorative and personalised designs.

.

.

Tell us all about your sweetie table and candy floss cart service?

.

I’m passionate about giving my brides and grooms a really personal service to create beautiful sweet displays. Most of my glass wear is uniquely sourced so no two sweet bars are the same! Sweet bars are designed to match colour schemes or themes, I can add items from vintage tea cups and tea pots to candelabras and flowers and bunting. Give me a theme and I’ll design something to match.

.

For a personal touch I add traditional sweet cones to every bar with your big day details on them, these make fab little favours for your guests to take home.

.

Everyone loves candy floss! Bringing the fun of the fair right to you, our fabulous cart is perfect for every occasion. The cart is hired by the hour and supplies you and your guests with as much floss as you can possibly eat! Freshly spun in front of your eyes, it’s like magic!

.

Why not try our gourmet package? This allows you to get create and add tantalising flavours to your floss. From strawberry and cherry to watermelon and blueberry, yummy! And to top it off you can add popping candy to the top of your floss, for a real exploding experience.

.

.

What can a bride and groom who book Love Is Sweet Company expect?

.

Every bride and groom can expect a truly unique and personal service. I’m passionate about customer service and feel getting to know my customer is an essential part of this.

.

And of course you can expect that your wedding will be a ‘sweet’ one when hiring Love is Sweet Company.

.

.

What sets you apart from your competition?

.

I offer a number of services all in one place from the sweet bars to candy floss, popcorn to sweet favours.

Unlike some other sweet bar companies I stay with your bar for the hire period to make sure its clean and tidy from beginning to end.

.

I provide my clients with a memorable and personal experience.

.

.

.

Why is booking Love Is Sweet Company a good alternative to wedding favours?

.

Just like the sweet bars I can match your favours to colour schemes and themes. They all come personalised with your guests names on too, which double up as unique place settings.

.

You can order jars filled or empty. Our empty jars work fabulously alongside our sweet bars, allowing guests to fill up their own jars from the bar.

.

We All Scream For Ice Cream! Supplier Showcase: Scoops Of Delight PLUS 10% DISCOUNT For Wedding Blog Readers

May 7th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Scoops Of Delight

.

.

Although its not exactly tropical this May Bank Holiday, I’ll never say no to a double scoop of traditional Yorkshire ice cream.  This afternoon I talk to Brides Up North Featured Supplier Adam of Scoops Of Delight about treating your wedding guests to a cone or two! 

.

Make mine a Chocoholic with extra sprinkles…

.

.

How did Scoops of Delight begin?

.

Scoops of Delight (backed with five years experience with catering & weddings) began from a visit down South. I noticed a man serving ice cream to the locals from an ice cream bike like ours and thought it was a fantastic idea that could be developed to suit weddings. So that was where our mission began and since then we’ve been serving our ice cream at weddings across Yorkshire to provide the best service and Ice Cream possible for Brides & Grooms. We strive to be the best at what we do and love being a part of your wedding day!

.

.

How does Scoops of Delight work?

.

You decide if you require one or more of our traditional 1950’s style ice cream bikes on your wedding day. Then you choose 4/5 flavours of ice cream (depending on your package), and we will offer a selection of sauces & toppings too. It’s all down to what you would like as we want your experience with us to be individual and special for you.

.

The ice cream we use is from Brymors Ice Cream Parlour in Masham. We give you over 30 choices of their luxury ice cream to choose from and all of the ice cream we serve is gluten free.

.

A few of our 30+ range of flavours:

.

Deluxe Natural Vanilla – Natural vanilla flavoured ice cream.

Strawberry – Strawberry based ice cream with strawberry pieces.

Chocolate – Soft milk chocolate flavoured ice cream.

Clotted Cream – Ice cream made with real clotted cream.

Rhubarb Crumble – Rhubarb and cinnamon biscuit crumble.

Fudge Brownie – Vanilla ice cream with brownie and fudge pieces.

Praline Pecan Delight – Vanilla ice cream with praline pecans and caramel sauce.

Chocoholic – A rich dark chocolate ice cream swirled with white chocolate sauce.

Raspberry Cheesecake – Raspberries with a chocolate biscuit crunch in a cheesecake flavoured ice cream.

Espresso – A rich coffee flavoured ice cream.

.

As well as ice cream, we’ve had even more requests recently to serve sorbets too. We now give you the option of 10 delicious sorbets, which can go alongside or even instead of our ice cream.

.

For our sauces & toppings we supply you with the standard choice of sauces & flakes. We also give you the option of our ‘extra special touches’ which are a select few toppings chosen specially for their high quality. Some of these are Cadburys own chocolate toppings like Flake swirls, Crunchie pieces and caramel barrels… or our special hot chocolate fudge/caramel sauce. You and your guests are guaranteed to love them!

.

.

Scoops Of Delight    Scoops Of Delight

.

.

Why should Brides Up North hire you for their big day?

.

Our ice cream bikes are eye catching and create a unique talking point amongst guests on your wedding day. They can also be used as a wonderful backdrop to the pictures of your special day.

.

Our staff are traditionally dressed (to match the bikes) and as well as being polite and friendly they are trained in the art of serving perfect scoop portions!

.

Most importantly we have a passion for ice cream and weddings. We love seeing the happy faces of just married Bride & Grooms and being able to be a part of your day.

.

.
What can a couple who book you expect on the day?

.

We arrive on your wedding day with one (or more) of our traditional 1950’s style ice cream bikes, your chosen flavours of ice cream & toppings, an attractively dressed table for your toppings to be displayed on and a curved chalkboard listing your chosen flavours.

.

We have three packages that have been adapted to suit you. Of course all of our packages can be personalised and changed to suit you and your day even more, we always do our best to make your experience with us perfect to the last detail.

.

Our first package is our ‘classic package’ priced at £300, this includes:

.

Two hours of service for 100 guests.

Crunchy medium waffle cones and/or eco friendly tubs with Spoons.

Your own choice of four ice cream flavours (one serving & enough for seconds!)

Chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce & raspberry sauce.

Cadburys chocolate flakes, Cadburys chocolate chips, honeycomb pieces.

.

.

Scoops Of Delight

.

.

Why should Brides Up North choose Scoops Of Delight over other similar companies?

.

There are a number of reasons why we should always be a first choice. Firstly our traditional bikes are kept traditional at weddings. We feel our bikes are unique and should not need to be dressed up on your wedding, they deserve to be appreciated the way they are! However the side table can be dressed to match the theme of your wedding or it can be left in its contemporary style. In the evenings we add small bright lights to the inside of the top of the parasol on the bike, this adds a cosy feel to our ice cream serving. For winter weddings or those unfortunate rainy days, we provide a matching gazebo for you and your guests to enjoy the ice cream in.

.

Since our packages can be personalised this allows pricing to be flexible.  We will not charge you for guests that aren’t going to be there!

.

.
Can you do a discount for Brides Up North readers? 

.

Yes we can! Once you contact us just quote “Brides Up North” by the 30th June (giving you plenty of time to decide what you would like) and we will give you a 10% discount on any package!

.

.

Scoops Of Delight

.
How can Brides Up North get in touch with you/ find out more?

.

For full information on what we do you can visit our website: www.scoopsofdelight.co.uk where you will find a downloadable booklet on all of the information to do with our packages.

.

Happy Hens & Cool Kids! Supplier Showcase: Life’s A Celebration

February 26th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

What a day!  I’ve had a fantastic day at the Brides Up North Wedding Exclusive at The Mansion, Roundhay Park today – thanks to all the amazing exhibitors (it was a complete sell out of fabulousness!)  and all you gorgeous brides and grooms who made the day so special.  I can’t wait for the next one.

.

Whilst I take a breather (and inhale a large glass of wine), lets talk party bags – amped up!  We do like everything bigger and better don’t we Brides Up North?! 

.

Let’s meet Featured Supplier Maxine from Life’s A Celebration!

.

Life's A Celebration

.

.

How did Life’s A Celebration begin?

.

Life’s A Celebration began as a business providing Party Boxes for all kinds of celebrations for both children and grown-ups. We have milestone party boxes, children’s party boxes, baby shower party boxes and much more. The idea behind the party boxes is simple – you tell me how many guests you have coming and I box up a party and send it to you.  The business has expanded its range massively since I started and this has been as a reaction to my customers asking for new products.

.

In November I launched my fantastic Wedding Activity Bags. These products are designed to keep all the children entertained on your wedding day.

.

.

Life's A Celebration

.

.

Tell us about your wedding activity packs for children?

.

My Wedding Activity Bags are a product I am especially proud of. These bags are totally unique and are crammed with gorgeous fillings that have all been tested with children so I am confident they will keep all the children entertained on your big day.

.

They have been so well received and provide each bride with something unique to give to the children at her wedding. I have a full range of bags to suit boys and girls of all ages with each tailored to the child’s age. For example our Boys bags for the over 6s has a great shield design on the front and is crammed with an aircraft carrier model kit with planes to make, a Roald Dahl reading book, an activity book, colouring pencils, a wooden vehicle puzzle, a noughts & crosses game and some fabric pens for colouring on the bag. Our girls’ bags for the 4-6 year olds come with a delightful floral design and contain a Pinkie Girl Memo Pad, a Pop Crayon, a Princess Sticker Book, Beads in a Tin to make a necklace and bracelet and some fabric pens for colouring on the bag.

.

The bags have been designed by Helen Oswald of What A Do Weddings and what makes them even more special is that they can be personalised too. So they can be used as a name place that is a little bit different and is certain to amuse the children.

.

.

Life's A Celebration

.

.

What other services/ products do you provide?

.

I provide a range of Hen Party Boxes to suit all tastes. These contain everything you need for a fabulous do. We have our Wild Night Hen Party Boxes. These contain everything you need for a lively fun night with the girls — these party boxes contain novelty shot glasses, sashes, tiaras, banners, badges, games with prizes, plates, cups, napkins, wine glasses, swag bags stuffed with novelty items for everybody to take home and much more.

.

The Girls Night Hen Party Boxes are for those brides to be that want a slightly quieter night with her friends and these boxes contain games, prizes, novelty items, a DVD, gourmet popcorn, tableware, wine glasses, swag bags for everyone to take home and much more!

.

I also have my unique Pre-Wedding Party Boxes which are designed for the bride to say "Thank you!" to the important ladies who have helped organise her special day. The party box will allow everybody to relax, calm their nerves and get ready for the big day. It comes with games, prizes, a romantic DVD and gourmet popcorn along with delightful "Appreciation Bags" — these are filled with novelty tokens of love and affection and will let the bride show her guests how much they mean to her.

.

.

Life's A Celebration

.

My wedding activity bags start from just £16 and my party boxes are only £10 per head.

.

Life's A Celebration

.

.

Why should Brides Up North choose Life’s A Celebration?

.

I pride myself on good customer service. I am friendly and flexible and I totally understand that your wedding day is the most important day of your life. I will work with you to give you exactly what you want. For example, with my Wedding Activity Bags if you know that the girls that are attending your wedding are Hello Kitty fans then let me know and we’ll change the fillings to reflect that.

.

My products are totally unique and save you so much time and money on sourcing these good quality items leaving you time to concentrate on organising the rest of your big day.
