July 10th, 2018 | Rachel Parry

As the backdrop and setting to your big day, deciding on the venue can be one of the trickiest hurdles to overcome during the planning process. Couples are often keen to find somewhere that suits their taste, style and personalities – though the absolute cherry on the cake has to be if the venue is new to the wedding scene, meaning that none of their guests will have attended an event there before.

As such it’s a super exciting part of our jobs when we can reveal a freshly launched venue as one of our latest Sponsors – just as we’re doing in this post today. And it’s one for those of you looking to marry in the North West – introducing the fabulous Tilstone House, a stunning stately home located just outside of Tarporley, in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.

This exclusive wedding and event venue officially opened its doors to brides and grooms in the spring with a spectacular party giving guests a flavour of what the luxurious period property has to offer and showcasing its stunning range of ceremony and reception spaces.

For those that weren’t able to make the launch, we’re catching up with the lady who knows Tilstone House inside-out, its wedding and events planner, Charlotte Elise Dodd, who’s giving us the lowdown on this sensational venue whilst filling us on that fabulous party too!

You launched Tilstone House in style with a party titled ‘The Art of the Spectacular’ – how did the evening go?

charlotte says: We’ve been eagerly anticipating the official launch event for a long time and so it was fantastic to see all the hard work and planning pay off.

The launch saw more than 100 guests attend Tilstone House for a theatrical spectacle, involving live actors and a firework display. Actors and performers from Yet Another Carnival, a Storyhouse Theatre associated company, were stationed in various rooms in the venue, each assuming a different role at a fictional 1920s wedding. From the bride and groom sharing a romantic first dance, to Old Etonian baronet and original owner, Sir Gilbert Greenall, returning from a shooting trip, guests were left enchanted by the characters’ anecdotes and mischievous activities.

And what other treats did guests enjoy to during the event?

Canapes were provided by Northern Fields, one of the venue’s official catering partners. Trailblazers in ground-breaking gastronomy, Northern Fields is renowned for its innovative and experimental food offering, and guests were treated to a host of options, including cured salmon and celeriac and tuna tartare with wild garlic and peas.

Live music was performed by international events party band, Under the Covers. With a set-list covering everything from classics to modern hits, guests enjoyed an evening of top quality entertainment from one of the most sought-after function bands in the North West.

The evening culminated with a firework display by Big Wedding Fireworks, who specialise in spellbinding, musically choreographed displays for weddings and events.

All in all, the launch party gave guests an idea of what’s to come at Tilstone House – and now we can’t wait to get started.

For those that weren’t able to make the launch party, please could you describe the look and feel of Tilstone House?

Tilstone House is a luxury wedding venue. It has a Victorian style exterior and many traditional features within, such as fireplaces, staircases, flooring and the tall ceilings, have all been maintained but we have undergone a recent refurbishment to make it more current and contemporary without it being too modern, so it lends itself to all styles of weddings.

And what do you know about its history?

The House was built in 1888 by Lord and Lady Daresbury – it was originally used as a hunting and shooting lodge and was sold and lived in by many different families over the years until the current owner decided it would be a fantastic and beautiful wedding venue.’

Tilstone House (c) Natural Selection Design (3)

Can you tell us about the ceremony and reception areas?

Tilstone House has many different ceremony options – our beautiful lawns and pergola are licensed for civil ceremonies for more than 100 guests; we have a small indoor ceremony room for up to 40 guests, and also a larger conservatory ceremony room for up to 100 guests. We have a large function room has been recently renovated and can seat around 100 guests comfortably for the wedding breakfast and then extra guests in the evening.

We offer exclusive use of the House, so all rooms can be used by guests, no-one lives in the property so no areas are out of bounds. Couples could have an intimate gin bar in one of our drawing rooms and a whisky bar in another if they wish. We have a lovely library room for guests to enjoy as well if they would prefer to be away from the action of the wedding and would like some time to themselves.

What makes Tilstone House a special wedding venue and sets it apart from others?

The exclusive use aspect is really important for us at Tilstone House and myself and my team deliver a personal and bespoke service to our couples leading up to, and on the day of, the wedding.

Brides and grooms will be able to utilise the house and the grounds in any way they fancy – there are no rules as to where you can and can’t go for pictures, there are no rooms that are blocked off. The second the exclusive use starts, couples can rest assured that the only people in that house will be their suppliers, guests, the caterers and my team.

There is nothing that we can’t do for our clients – we will be working the morning of the wedding to dress the venue, put everything out and meet with the suppliers as they arrive to set up – so couples and their guests will not need to lift a finger.

I truly believe Tilstone House is going to become the best venue in the North West – the services, care and wedding couples will receive at Tilstone House will be second to none and nothing will be too much trouble for us. There are no limits as to when we can have meetings; we can meet daytime, evening, weekends – as many times as the bride and groom would like leading up to their wedding, again, a bespoke service that not all venues offer.

What sort of bride would be a Tilstone House bride?

A bride who wants their wedding to be the absolute perfect day where they don’t need to do everything themselves – we can take care of everything. Also, a bride who likes the option to utilise so many different spaces and styles for their wedding day, including outdoor and indoor options.

How can your staff help to make the planning process easier and the big day amazing?

Charlotte Elise Weddings and Events will be managing all weddings exclusively at Tilstone House – we won ‘North-West Wedding Planner of the Year’ in the 2017 Wedding Industry Awards. We know how to run a wedding, how to plan a wedding and have worked at so many different venues so couples really are getting very experienced planners.

We will supply couples who book their wedding at Tilstone House with a personalised ‘supplier recommendation’ list, which will be tailored based on the conversations we’ve had regarding the style of the wedding.

Charlotte Elise Weddings and Events are also offering their Full Planning Wedding Package at a discounted rate for Tilstone House clients, so brides and grooms can relax knowing a professional is taking care of everything and that their day will run extremely smoothly.

year-round beauty. four seasons in one day for an inspirational styled shoot at stock farm

March 20th, 2018 | Laura McDonagh

Stock Farm (c) Stephen McGowan Photography (17)

Believe us, it’s tricky task to deliver one gorgeous styled photoshoot in just one day, which is why we were so impressed when a dynamic group of industry suppliers from the North West upped the ante recently and pulled off what was essentially four different styled shoots – yes, you heard us, four – in 12 hours.

The backdrop for the shoot is the stunning Stock Farm on the Tatton Estate in Cheshire, where we will be hosting a Pop Up Wedding Festival on Sunday 8th April, 11am to 3pm, FREE ENTRY. We will be joined there by a collection of the area’s top wedding suppliers, including a few that feature in this very shoot, to help inspire your big day while giving you chance to view this gorgeous venue first-hand.

Falling in love with the venue’s country charm, the creatives behind today’s shoot were on a mission to prove that choosing a farm or barn as your wedding location doesn’t automatically equate to a rustic theme. And with looks and styling as diverse as ultra-glam makeup, edgy bridal separates, urban-style neon lighting and luxe candelabra floral arrangements, we’ve got to say – we’re in agreement.

The professionalism and skills of the team involved here is quite simply phenomenal and if you’re planning a wedding in the North West, we think you’d be incredibly lucky to have any of these guys on board! Over to the lovely Jacklyn now from Precious Things Event Styling to tell us more.

jacklyn says: As a new venue, Stock Farm were keen to show the versatility of their barn, and so the idea for a ‘Wedding For All Seasons’ shoot was formed. It’s such a beautiful new venue and has been deliberately designed as a blank canvas. We worked in the big barn but also in the outside areas and another smaller barn. We wanted to illustrate how the setting could suit each season and how it could be adapted for any style and theme; from rustic to glamorous.

Stock Farm (c) Stephen McGowan Photography (1)

We used different flowers and styling approaches for the different seasons, of course, to create a range of completely different looks. The summer colour scheme was soft golds, ivories and blush pinks, complemented by avalanche roses and lisianthus nestled at the centre of a gold candelabra, set against a background of eucalyptus nicholii, pink grevillea and gold-dusted eucalyptus cinerea. We dressed the chairs with ivory sashes and gold tulle flowers, used an ivory carpet and positioned ivory lanterns to dress the aisle. Love Lights The Way‘s rustic neon heart finished off the ‘relaxed glamour’ look perfectly. Hattie, our model from Boss Model Management, carried a hand tied posy bouquet of roses, hydrangeas and lisianthus and James, our groom, wore a pink rose buttonhole detailed with lisianthus and gold wire around the stem. The beautiful five-tier cake by Marie Antoinette Cakes complemented this colour scheme perfectly with its soft pink and gold detailing.

Hattie wore a gorgeous boho dress – the Lea by St Patrick – with a chiffon skirt, an open back and an overall light and airy look. 7th Heaven Bridal provided all of the dresses for the shoot and they were real beauties. James wore an Italian stretch fabric jacket by Circolo, a blue shirt, navy Jacob Cohen jeans and shoes from Joseph Cheaney & Sons, all provided by Stephen Muldoon Bespoke.

The menu, created by Top Table Wedding and Event Catering, was dreamy – prosecco, plus canapes of slithers of rare Angus beef on rocket crostinis, lobster mac n cheese, tiger tail king prawns with a Pina Colada dip and strawberry and white chocolate cheesecake.

Stock Farm (c) Stephen McGowan Photography (25)

For our spring photoshoot, seasonal flowers dominated (obviously!) Mixed tulips, anemones and ranunculus were set against a background of sword fern, eucalyptus nicholii and asparagus fern. Hattie carried an elongated bouquet and wore an asymmetrical flower crown while James sported a parrot tulip buttonhole detailed with an oversized bow. The spring table setting was a tulip tree with an abundance of sword fern and rainbow tulips, which were simply gorgeous on their own. Dusky pink chiffon ruffles transformed the chairs and the subtle, elegant table stationery by Inspired by Lisa had just the right amount of sparkle.

For this shoot, Hattie wore some super-cool separates by Charlotte Balbier – the Lyric topper and the River skirt – provided by 7th Heaven. Her makeup, created by Gemma and Amy at Dollface Makeup, was soft and fresh with subtle pink and lilac hues on the eyes and bold matte pink lips. They styled Hattie’s hair in natural, soft and textured boho curls, providing the perfect base for the flower crown. James donned a blue check suit and silk tie by Pal Zileri and a white shirt from Eton.

The canapes were heavenly: mini vegetable garden filo baskets with a red pepper hummus and pine nut pesto, broccoli and Gruyere soufflé tartlets, ham hock and cheddar cheese terrine and lemon and lime panna cotta garnished with a chocolate shard.

Autumn was unanimously our favourite season to shoot – and the mix of burgundy anthuriums, trailing red amaranthus, plum astrantia, blue eryngium, dusky pink cymbidium orchids, dusky pink chrysanthemum blooms, green hellebores and blush pink spray roses set against a background of mixed, berried foliages was just stunning. Pheasant feathers and hydrangeas also featured. We shot autumn in the outside barn area and lit the archway with vintage Edison bulbs and rustic love letters. Hattie carried a relaxed, unstructured trailing bouquet and wore a headpiece of hydrangeas, feathers, leucadendron and skimmia. James wore a boutonniere of spray rose, astrantia, hellebores, berried eucalyptus and feathers dressed with raffia as well as a very elaborate bow tie made of pheasant feathers! The stag-themed, rustic table plan fitted perfectly with this look with its hessian backing and vintage embroidery circles and the stunning hand-painted cake – another of Marie Antoinette Cakes’ creations – beautifully captured the warmth and depth of this beautiful season.

Hattie wore Justin Alexander 8925 with its adorable sweetheart neckline and lace applique. The makeup was bold, with deep burnt orange and bronze shades, black smudged eyeliner and fuller lashes. Matte skin and defined brows were finished off with a dark plum matte lip. Dollface Makeup styled her hair in a lightly structured side bun and some textured curls, while feathers and flowers created a statement feature to complete the look.

Top Table served mini toffee apples, fish and chips with tartare sauce, crispy duck spring rolls and quail scotch eggs with black pudding and homemade piccalilli – divine!

alternative edge. a country-chic styled shoot at stock farm, tatton estate

October 16th, 2017 | Rachel Parry

A Boho Wedding Styled Shoot at Stock Farm (c) Chiascuro (1)

We’re now nearing the end of our autumn season of Luxury Wedding Fairs across the north of the country (though five still remain, check them out here!) and we have to hand it to the suppliers that have exhibited with us – they rock!

Keen to introduce brides-to-be the very best talent in the north, we always encourage our exhibitors to pull out all the stops on their stands to showcase their talents and inspire visiting couples – it’s amazing what’s possible through hard work, skills and creativity!

We were therefore thrilled to hear that a group of suppliers at our debut Stock Farm wedding fair in September, had seized the opportunity to style up a shoot onsite at this fabulous Cheshire venue, which really made the most of their incredible efforts.

Prepare for some crazily cool dresses, a to-die-for ceremony backdrop and delectable details as we let Emmylou Kelly, owner of Manchester-based photography and styling company Chiascuro, take over the blog to tell how she and the team achieved these truly stunning images

Diary Date: Our next Pop Up Wedding Festival Fair at Stock Farm takes place on Sunday 8th April 2018! We’ll see you there then!

With images by Chiascuro.

emmylou says: As Stock Farm is a brand-new wedding venue, the team involved in the shoot were all eager to work in partnership with the venue on future weddings.

The Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Fair presented an ideal opportunity to arrange a styled shoot (at the end of the event as the day was so busy!) as we would all be in the same place at the same time and so could collaborate on a joint project.

A Boho Wedding Styled Shoot at Stock Farm (c) Chiascuro (7)

When arranging such shoots, I like to ask suppliers to showcase their best pieces or to bring/create something that is true to their company and their own style which allows the shoot to look versatile, whilst still flowing as a collective.

The shoot was based around the dresses supplied by Wilderness Bride and Ghost Orchid Bride, which were a mix of ultra-stylish and discreetly modern designs. Our model, Stephanie, who is also owner of Wilderness Bride, had a cool rock vibe going on, so we went with this look for the styling. We then mixed things up a little with leather jackets and veils to give the look an alternative vibe.

Having the beautiful and stylish flowers from Sassflower to work with made it easy to create a look that will be the envy of 2018 and 2019 brides. I tried to envision what Stock Farm’s future brides would choose for the wedding. A little bit of country rock chic?

A Boho Wedding Styled Shoot at Stock Farm (c) Chiascuro (31)

The venue is situated next to a wheat field which couples are able to use for photos. Even though the field had been harvested, I knew it would be a beautiful backdrop to photos and would show off the venue’s beautiful farming landscapes and surroundings. The backdrop also complemented Sassflowers’ stunning ceremony backdrop.

The ceremony arch was dressed with pampas grass, nude Sahara roses, white gladioli, vanda orchids, chrysanthemums, acacia and eucalyptus spray as well as spray roses. The bouquet complemented the backdrop and was made up of vanda orchids, quick sand carnations, astrantia, grasses, spray roses, scabiosa and black seedheads.

Other dreamy elements of the shoot included cake designs by Yolk, stationery by Artsynibs and lighting by Love Lights The Way.

Overall the shoot went really well and we were delighted with the results! It had been raining on and off all day but the Cheshire sun came out for us at 4pm and gave us that beautiful golden light that I love so much. We utilised various spots around the farm as the wedding fair was still taking place so we were able to showcase different looks, themes and styles as the venue offers so much will appeal to so many different types of brides.

With big thanks to Brides Up North for bringing us all together!

new venue alert: tilstone house

August 22nd, 2017 | Rachel Parry

Tilstone House (11)

One of the biggest tasks of wedding planning has to be the venue search – finding that one perfect place that will set the scene for your big day celebrations. As such, we love to hear about new venues that are set to open their doors to brides and grooms, extending the already fabulous offering that we have here in the North.

Today we’re sharing details of a brand new wedding venue to the North West  the beautiful Tilstone House, located just outside of Tarporley, Cheshire.

A stunning stately home in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, this splendid setting is available exclusively to couples and boasts a stunning range of ceremony and reception spaces, both inside and out.

In addition to use of the wonderful House, couples marrying at Tilstone will also receive exceptional service and assistance planning their big day courtesy of Charlotte Elise Weddings and Events, who will be managing all weddings at the venue.

Better still, as a special introductory offer, the venue’s team are offering the first ten couples who book Tilstone House, 10% off their venue fees. So, if you like what you see ladies, act fast, and you could increase your dress and accessory budget with the money you save. Jimmy Choos anyone?

Tilstone House (9)

Can you tell us a little about the history of Tilstone House?

charlotte says: The House was built in 1888 by Lord and Lady Daresbury – it was originally used as a hunting and shooting lodge and was sold and lived in by many different families over the years until the current owner decided it would be a fantastic and beautiful wedding venue.

How would you describe the look and feel of the venue

Tilstone House is a luxury wedding venue. It has a Victorian style exterior and many traditional features within, such as fireplaces, staircases, flooring and the tall ceilings, have all been maintained but we have undergone a recent refurbishment to make it more current and contemporary without it being too modern, so it lends itself to all styles of weddings.

Tilstone House (5)

Can you tell us about the ceremony and reception areas?

Tilstone House has many different ceremony options – our beautiful lawns and pergola are licensed for civil ceremonies for over 100 guests; we have a small indoor ceremony room for up to 40 guests, and also a larger conservatory ceremony room for up to 100 guests. We have a large function room has been recently renovated and can seat around 100 guests comfortably for the wedding breakfast and then extra guests in the evening.

We offer exclusive use of the house so all rooms can be used by guests, no-one lives in the property so no areas are out of bounds.

The exclusive use aspect is really important for us at Tilstone House and myself and my team deliver a personal and bespoke service to our couples leading up to, and on the day of, the wedding.

Brides and grooms will be able to utilise the house and the grounds in any way they fancy – there are no rules as to where you can and can’t go for pictures, there are no rooms that are blocked off.

glorious food: introducing belle epoque bespoke

November 23rd, 2016 | Rachel Parry

belle-epoque-bespoke-c-jonny-draper-14

As couples become more creative with their big day plans, the wedding menu is one element of the proceedings which is being given somewhat of a shake-up, with options beyond the traditional sit-down meal growing in popularity. So whether you want a menu to reflect the theme or season of your wedding, or you simply want to serve up your very favourite dishes, you’re going to need some experts who can produce food that tastes as good as it looks.

Fortunately, we have news of a new catering service in the North West, that can do just that…

For the first time in its 43-year history, Knutsford’s The Belle Époque, is to offer fine dining outside of its historic walls, providing event catering to external functions and events in the form of “Belle Époque Bespoke”. As one of the North West’s leading culinary beacons and wedding venues, The Belle Époque has attracted discerning diners, sporting stars and celebrity guests for more than four decades, securing its place within the top 5% of UK restaurants. Having just sampled this foodie gem’s delicious cuisine (and plenty of bubbly!) last night at a North West wedding industry dinner, we can certainly see why (we’re still dreaming of the dessert now).

Whether for events at home, in a marquee or in an external venue, and whether for 20 or 500 guests, The Belle Époque fine dining team will be bringing the same attention-to-detail that has helped maintain its place within the Michelin Guide for a staggering 38 consecutive years.

So for all you foodies out there, we’ll hand over the blogging reins to Kelly Angus, wedding and events manager at The Belle Époque, to give us more details about the delicious new venture.

Why has The Belle Époque decided to extend its services to outside catering via Belle Époque Bespoke?

kelly says: After providing award-winning food and dining in-house for more than 40 years, we now feel the time is right to extend our offering to people in their own setting. We have a highly experienced outside catering team who can offer exceptional food, service and planning, so it really is the perfect time for us to expand what we do.

What types of dining will Belle Époque Bespoke offer for weddings?

We can offer formal dining, canapes parties, sharing platers, barbecues, afternoon teas, and in fact, we pride ourselves on offering a totally bespoke service, so if you have a wild and wonderful idea we would love the challenge of creating it to our very high standards for you.

belle-epoque-bespoke-c-jonny-draper-2

Can you tell us a little about the Belle Époque Bespoke team and their experience?

Our team of fine dining chefs is headed up by Paul Wright. As a former protégée of Simon Radley, Paul trained at the Michelin-starred Chester Grosvenor restaurant. He’s cooked for members of the royal family, along with many of the North West’s most discerning diners. Paul is incredibly excited about The Belle Époque’s expansion into outside catering, and has set his sights on creating one of the finest catering businesses in the North West. Paul and his team have crafted outstanding event and wedding menus for you to choose from.

What would you advise brides and grooms to look for in a catering company for their big day?

Flexibility to create the menu you want, quick response times to your queries and a willingness to take time to understand what you want with a clear plan on each stage of the planning until the day arrives.

belle-epoque-bespoke-c-jonny-draper-16

What sets Belle Époque Bespoke apart from other wedding catering companies?

At The Belle Époque, we hold our outside catering services to the same high standards as our fine dining restaurant. We’re proud to have been awarded two AA rosettes, placing us amongst the top 5% of restaurants in the UK. Our numerous awards and accolades give you the assurance that your event management is in good hands.

Beyond the food what other services does Belle Époque Bespoke offer?

As a popular wedding venue, we know how to make sure that events run smoothly. Event management is what we do, so we’ll ensure the process is as easy and stress-free for you as possible. We want you to enjoy your big day, not be worrying about the canapes.

Whether you’re planning your wedding, or event managing a team away day, you want to know that you can trust your caterers to deliver outstanding food for each and every guest. We’re a family business and are proud of our reputation for excellent, friendly customer service. Over the last forty years, we’ve built up a solid reputation for fine dining and event management and have been recognised by the Michelin Guide for more than 35 years in a row.
