I am so excited to let you know that February 2017 marks 15 years in wedding planning for Stylish Events.
We launched Stylish Events at the National Wedding Show in February 2002. My goodness how the wedding planning world has changed over the years.
Wedding Planning was still very new to the UK and there were very few wedding planners. There was also no social media in those days!
To celebrate our 15th Anniversary, each week we will be featuring one wedding or event we have organised, as a thank you to lovely couples and clients we have had the privilege to help over the years.
I won’t be doing it in chronological order, but I have to start with the very first – lovely Hannah and Giles in September 2002.
Over 200 guests were invited to the ceremony at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on a beautiful September day. After the ceremony the Bride and Groom travelled by horse and cart to the reception at Lilliebrook Manor. Guests first enjoyed canapés and a barn dance in the 18th Century barn, followed by a grand dinner of pig roast and fine wine in an opulent marquee. After dinner they were entertained by an Abba tribute band and a 10 minute firework display.
Since the wedding Hannah and Giles have become close friends and we see each other regularly. They are very special clients, as they were the first to trust us with their precious day.
“It was the best day of our lives. Thank you so much for everything Dominique.”

The photographer was Adrian Neal, from The Studio Without Walls. In fact, Adrian and I have worked together on many weddings over the years and he will be with me on a large 2-Day Indian wedding this August. Working with great suppliers is hugely important in this business and we love working with Adrian.
I will never forget this wedding. It has a very special place in my heart.
