Stylish Events Celebrates 20 Years in Wedding Planning

I am so excited to let you know that this month we are celebrating 20 years of planning weddings for our wonderful couples.

I launched Stylish Events at the National Wedding Show in February 2002 and our first wedding was for lovely Hannah and Giles in September that year at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

My goodness how the wedding planning industry has changed over the years!

Wedding Planning was still very new to the UK at that time and there were very few wedding planners. There was also no social media in those days!

To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we have created a little video to highlight our journey in the wonderful world of weddings.

A huge thank you to the amazing couples who have trusted us with the most important day of their lives. We will never take your trust for granted. I wish I could include you all in this video, but then it would be hours long!

In 2009 lovely Gemma became our first intern and since that time we’ve had so many interns. I have loved having you all on my team and could not have done it without you!

I would also like to thank the fantastic venues and suppliers we have had the pleasure of working with over the years for helping us create these weddings.

A special thank you to the photographers for providing the images in the video: Kate Nielen, Adrian Neal, John Nassari, Simon Carr, Francis Carlisle, Ann Kathrin Koch, Craig Mitchell, Sergio De Riccardis, Nick Redman, Colin Ross, Paula Broome.

Here’s to the next 20 years!!!

Love, Dominique

“The best two-day English-Indian wedding I have EVER seen” as quoted on Rock My Wedding

Lyndsey and Kayyor’s wedding at The Olde Bell and Hedsor House

We first met Lyndsey and Kayyor 9 months before their wedding and helped them design and co-ordinate a two-day spectacular wedding weekend.

DAY 1

The first day of this two-day adventure was at The Olde Bell, in Hurley. The historic barn sparkled with elegant, rustic charm. The ceremony was followed by an intimate dinner for close family and friends, followed by a party with music from the Dapper Dudes, fun with magician Etienne and a fabulous 4-tier cheese tower from Churchmouse Cheeses. As a special treat the ladies (and some men!) had their hands adorned with henna art for the following day.

DAY 2

On the second day the atmosphere became a riot of colour and a fun when we moved the festivities to Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire.

A Hindu wedding full of spiritual symbolism took place under a stunning mandap from Jay & I Events, amazing food from Rhubarb, music and dancing (Bollywood et al) was provided by Mighty Fine Entertainment.

The spectacular flowers for both days were created and designed by the lovely Chantal Flores.

The 170 guests were asked to come in traditional Indian Dress, which made the day so special and colourful.

This was without a doubt a fantastic wedding and one of our all time favourites. The unseasonal snow (it was in late March), which at first appeared a challenge, made the day even more magical.

It was such a pleasure to work with this lovely couple.

The wonderful photographs from this wedding were taken by Ann Kathrin Koch. To see even more photos from this wedding, please visit her blog here.

“Stylish Events really understood and helped us in creating our wedding.

We wanted a two-day English and Indian wedding day and for the two days to be completely different. They were instrumental in making sure this happened and our guests and family from all over the world had an absolutely fabulous time!”
