With spring in full bloom, it’s no wonder so many eager brides and grooms decide to tie the knot during this wonderful, blossoming season!

When you are planning for your wedding or somebody else’s, the most important part about the planning is the catering service. The food aspect indeed needs to be perfect at a wedding. Besides the décor and the venue, food is the aspect that most people look up to. Good food can make or break your reputation amongst the guests at the wedding. You might be spending a lot of your money on the catering service, hence always choose the best. There is an array of options from which you can choose one wedding food catering company. Take a look at the qualities that all the wedding food catering services have…

When you’re executing your meticulous plans for the perfect wedding day, as a perfectionist (which most people become when they’re about to tie the knot), you have to think of absolutely everything. First of all, there is the picking of the perfect venue that coincides with your personal style, the décor and ambience, perfectly coordinated outfits for the bride and groom, not to mention the groomsmen and bridesmaids. Then, there are the logistical matters – what kind of wedding feast you want, sit-down, buffet, family style? On top of that, there is the scouting for the perfect band that will have everyone on their feet, as well as the search for the best photographer who will catch the beautiful and candid moments. Finally, there is the devil in the details – the little details themselves.
If you’ve been to a lot of weddings, then you know they can get a little wild. From décor and food to the wedding dress itself, often things are very big, flashy, and over-the-top, and a lot of couples delight in that kind of dramatic flair. And you know what? That’s great. It’s your wedding, and if you want it to be a grand spectacle, that’s something that should only be encouraged. However, with the recent trends, a lot of brides are actually looking for something simpler. Minimalism is becoming popular again, and if you’re not the kind of couple who likes to make a big fuss, it could be just the kind of direction to take for your big day.
The week is at it’s end and for most that’s a great thing, however here at Matthew Oliver we love all things wedding, so we’ve decided to spend our Saturday visiting a stunning venue that we get the pleasure of working with this year, that venue being Aynhoe Park. Can’t wait! Though first I get the honour of introducing Cassie Steele, a freelancer who couldn’t wait to share her tips on ‘Planning the best outdoor wedding’; as lovers of planning outdoor weddings we jumped right on board with her top tips and couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Check them out below;
The day has arrived again, but not to worry it is almost over and soon you will be home with a cup of tea and Netflix, hurrah!
Just wanted to write a quick post about a recent guide we have been featured in called ‘How to choose your wedding suppliers’, written by the lovely Sheldon over at Almost October. It’s a guide into wedding suppliers from his unique position as a Photographer and serves to answer just some of the questions couples wish to know! Hopefully we played our part well and lived up to his expectations!
Well make up your own mind and take a read here (it’s worth it I promise!):

Now go have an amazing week and we’ll speak soon!
These past 2 weeks have really flown right by and now here we are almost halfway into the month of April! I have of course been learning how to do lots of things and have now worked on two proposals for new clients. To create these design boards I first had to go over each brief to grasp what style of wedding and details they are looking for.
We love planning destination weddings and we know there is a lot that goes into making it unique for you and your partner. Although you are planning an international wedding and there are a lot of similarities to planning a wedding in your home country, there are also some significant differences that you need to bear in mind. Here at Matthew Oliver we have therefore put together an infographic to remind you of all the questions you should be asking, to make sure you really get the wedding you always wanted!
I’m Ceri which is pronounced as Kerri. I was born and raised in Barbados and sadly never appreciated the beautiful beaches and lovely sunny weather until moving to UK just over a year ago. At the moment I am still adapting to British culture and learning new things each week with the help of my fabulous uni friends. Today is my first day in the office and of course I woke up excited and nervous. I was greeted in Bradford-on-Avon by a breathtaking view while crossing the bridge on my short walk to the office and then the wonderful Winston as soon as I came through the door. I couldn’t have asked for a better welcome than snuggles, rubs and licks.
