You know what? It’s just the perfect time to get cracking with your wedding plans. During the summer couple’s don’t always tend to be planning their weddings, there are holidays, events and weddings to attend, so often planning is shelved until the winter months. But if you get organised and start booking in your wedding suppliers now, then you will be sure to get in there before everyone else to secure your wedding dream team. In my opinion there is nothing worse than setting your heart on a particular wedding photographer or wedding venue for example and then learning they are booked for your date.
Well let me introduce you then to some of our newest and very finest wedding suppliers who you can find in our Supplier Love wedding directory. Here at Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, we think they are all totally awesome!
Different. Clever. Creative.

In the heart of England your table is laid, ready for you to gather together the people who matter most. 45 acres of woodland, a daffodil dell and walled kitchen garden envelope this Neo-Tudor Gothic house. Just down the garden path lies the sleepy village of Hampton-in-Arden, a 15 minute train journey into Birmingham, and one hour from London.
Inside, the family owners have paid homage to the Manor’s Arts and Crafts history. Floors are lined with original Minton tiles, hand-painted stained glass sits in the windows, and hand-carved oak banisters wind their way up to the bedrooms bedecked in William Morris prints. But Creative Director Fjona has made the Manor a home away from home, pairing its historic features with sink-into-sofas, reading corners, and contemporary geometric patterns.
Food and drink is their main event, with menus inspired by Michelin-starred, four AA-rosette awarded restaurant, Peel’s. Your wedding breakfast includes the best, locally sourced produce, cooked using modern techniques. Meanwhile, the Wine Director and Sommelier introduce you to natural and organic wines that evoke a sense of the vineyard and, most importantly, taste great!
It’s rare that a Restaurant with Rooms has the space to seat 120 guests. The Courtyard was once the turning place for coaches. Today you can still see the grooves where the horses’ wheels scraped the stone walls, and spot the clock-tower overhead, but the space has been transformed into a bright and contemporary atrium, set to melt the hearts of your friends and family.
They know that it’s the atmosphere that will make your day one your guests will never forget. That’s why the team have made serving you their craft. The house was built for throwing your perfect party.

Currently travelling around Europe in a camper van with my family, I’m taking bookings for European destination weddings, or weddings back in the UK from next spring. As a romantic at heart, being a bit of a nomad has appealed to me, and my wanderings through Europe have stirred my passion for photography even more. I enjoy capturing the feeling of a place or moment, as I always have with weddings. Love is an amazing thing to experience, and creating images with expression, and emotion, are central to my photography.
