Carole Gregory Cakes





Call: 01889 579698

Do you do sugar work?
My speciality is her ability to reproduce characters and flowers in sugar icing, so please take your time to browse through our designs

I want something quite unique, is that possible?
Of course, I really enjoy making striking and interesting cakes that are fun and reflect your personalities, so don’t be scared to come to me with something quirky.

What flavours do you make?
I make a range of flavours and fillings, traditional options such as sponge and fruit cake, chocolate, carrot and so on.

The Juci Luci Cake Company





Call: 0843 289 2077



What are you well known for? 

I’m particularly well known for impressive Asian wedding cakes, with personalised arches where you can often see through the cake. My signature flavour is chai latte and banana- I created it, so if you taste that at a wedding you attend, you know it’s a Juci Luci cake! I am well known for my Eggless sponges too, and endeavour to meet a range of dietary requirements.

Can I choose from different couple silhouettes to go on the cake?


I have my own laser cutter, so we can personalise it to you both as a couple.

Do you make none Asian wedding cakes?


I do, yes. I honed my craft in lavish Asian celebrations, so I have an innate understanding of how the weddings work- but I’m happy to make cakes for all types of weddings and celebrations.

I want a tall, well tiered cake, does this mean I have to have polystyrene dummy cakes?


Not at all, each layer of your cake can be real cake inside that you can serve to your guests, and each tier can be a different flavour too.

Do you offer all of your flavours as eggless, or do I have to choose from a smaller menu?


I offer them all! I have used lockdowns and down time from wedding cakes to test and develop new recipes, so I can now offer an equal list of flavours.
We’re also a nut free kitchen, and any cakes with special dietary requirements are made first after a deep clean.

I want to taste your cake flavours, is there a way to do this with current COVID restrictions?


Absolutely, we wouldn’t expect you to choose us without knowing you’re going to be happy. We do hope we’re back to meeting you all in person, as I love getting to know couples. I’m currently sending out samples in the post, and dependent on restrictions and weather, am looking in to outdoor consultations until the more normal ways resume


Nothing But Wedding Cars



Call: 07950 233240

How do you find a reputable wedding  car supplier?

When looking for a wedding car supplier it is important to do your research.  Always look at their reviews on Trustpilot, Google and facebook, if there are no recent ones be cautious. Check to see if they have any reviews from couples affected by Covid19, this will give you a useful incite into how they are able to cope with the challenging situations. Where possible arrange a viewing appointment to go and see the vehicles, this will allow you to check that they actually own the cars they are promoting (believe it or not this does happen) and to check the condition of the vehicles, to ensure they are well looked after and maintained.  If a viewing appointment is not possible, ask them to conduct a virtual viewing appointment or to provide videos of the vehicles you are interested in. Never book just based on photos, these can be misleading as they can be very old or easily enhanced.

How do you decide which type of wedding car?

To help you make the decision on your wedding transport you might want to consider, your theme or styling, if it is a rustic or vintage theme then vintage and quirky cars work brilliantly. Also consider your wedding venue, if it is a barn or rural location, vintage VWs will compliment it perfectly, on the other hand, modern luxury or classic vintage cars may work better with a modern hotel or venue. We also find that for many of our couples, vintage VWs have featured heavily in their lives or that of their family members and so a vintage VW Beetle or campervan is an absolute must.


When should you book your wedding transport?

Don’t leave booking your wedding transport to the last minute, with so many weddings postponed to 2021 and 2022, availability is going to become very limited. We would recommend booking at least a year in advance, you will only need to leave a deposit to secure your dream car, so get researching and book now to avoid disappointment.


How much do wedding cars cost?

You should expect to pay in the region of £300 – £400 for  1 car, if you need more than 1 car most companies will offer you a discount.  Be wary if the price quoted seems too good to be true, it probably is, buying, insuring and maintaining wedding cars is expensive, if the price is too low, listen to those alarm bells, do more research  or walk away.

What is normally included in the price?

The cost for your wedding car will usually include, your transport from your pick up address to the ceremony, and then on to your reception, with time for some photos. In most cases there is normally a mileage or time allowance, for a small additional cost you can usually increase either or both. The cost paid will also include ribbons and bows on the car in ivory, or in some cases in the colour of your choice. At Nothing but Wedding Cars we also include: choice of rustic wooden signs to hang on the campers for the photos, a basket of useful items for the passengers to use (includes: water, mints, tissues, hairspray, deodorant, nailfile, sewing kit, hand wipes etc etc), Bollinger champagne crate & glasses to use (wedding car companies cannot legally supply alcohol as they do not have drinks license)


How many cars will you need?

The number of cars you will need is largely governed by the number of people you need to transport, so if you want to travel with your bridesmaids something like a vintage style Regent Landaulet or VW campervan is a great option, as either can carry up to 6 passengers. If you have a slightly bigger party or you want to travel separately from the bridesmaids, it may be possible to do multiple journeys or pick ups  if you locations are close enough  together, this can also reduce the potential cost as you may only need  1 vehicle. Speak to your wedding car company, they will be able to advise on what is possible or could work best for you.


If you are staying at the venue, do you need a wedding car?

Many brides decide to stay at the venue with some of the bridal party, the night before the wedding  and as a result think that they do not need a wedding car. It is always such a shame to miss out on a car as it creates an amazing backdrop for the photos and a prop for the photographer to create some truly memorable photos. In such cases you may want to consider, the car picking up your fiancée and bringing him/her to the venue, or alternatively book the car to take you and your partner for a romantic drive after your ceremony for some private one on one time, in both cases you will then have the benefit of having  the car for those fab photographs too.

Who travels with who?

Traditionally the bridesmaids and mother of the bride travel together, with the bride and father of the bride travelling in a separate car. You may also want to arrange a car for the groom and the groom’s party to the ceremony too. Of course, as with all wedding formalities, there are no rules and you should always do what works best for your day!

Call: 01922 647721Do you tailor your suits?You can even choose your cloth, and have made to measure suits made through Etch.Do you hire suits too?

Yes, we do hire suits, and have specialised in formal hire and fine menswear since 1956, with our tailoring history stretching back even further.What sort of suits do you stock?

We carry more casual Lounge suits, and of course the ever more popular tweed. Tailcoats are still a popular choice, and we stock more formal Evening wear suits too.What about younger members of the wedding party?We cater for all shapes and sizes, including children too.
Flissy G Millinery


Q: What style of hat will suit me?
I’m aware that not everyone has experience of wearing hats, and may not know what style to go for… during the initial consultation, you will have freedom to try as many styles as you like. I am honest, and help you to find something you not only feel comfortable, but also flatters your face shape and outfit style. I believe there is a hat for everyone… we will find it together.
Q: Do you make bridal headpieces too?
Yes, I’m happy to take on any challenge! If you have something in mind – a piece you’ve seen on a celebrity or catwalk, I’ll happily work to a brief. I will never copy something directly, but will allow it to lead my design aesthetic. I also make historical pieces and theatrical ones.
Q. I love hats, but don’t have an occasion to wear a hat for… do you make casual hats too?
Yes! I make a Daywear Collection every winter; fedoras, cloche hats trilbies and berets that can style up your winter coat for shopping trips and days out. I also make summer sun hats, so you definitely don’t need an occasion to buy a hat!
Q. How do your hats and fascinators fit on the head?
This is something we discuss during the consultation process. My smaller fascinators grip into your hair with a toothed crocodile clip – very secure and comfortable. My perchers usually attach with a headband, of differing widths and materials. My aim is that the headpiece should be light enough to require minimal attachment, and the attachment should blend into your hair and be nearly invisible.
Q: I don’t know whether I should wear a hat or a fascinator – what would you recommend?
Sometimes it becomes clear very early on in the consultation what you will work best for you. However, I also create hats with detachable fascinators. These are perfect for Mothers-of-the-Bride/Groom who want something formal for daytime, but would still like to wear something for the evening celebrations. The fascinator simply clips off the hat, and into your hair. Easy, and gives you a while new look for evening!
Q: I have 2 events coming up… could I wear the same piece for both?
Of course! I am also happy to re-trim a hat made by me for a lower fee than having a new one made. So, providing the hat base is a neutral colour, I can remove/add trimmings to go with a second outfit. One hat, two different looks!
Q: Do you charge for a consultation?
No, your initial 1hr consult is free. If you are happy with the design created at the end, you pay a 50% deposit before the headpiece is made.
Q. I live far away. Do I have to meet with you to discuss a bespoke hat?
No, not at all. Of course it is easier if you can come and meet me, but we can chat on the phone, send each other photos, and design drawings. I understand it isn’t always feasible to meet in person.
Final one!
Q: Hats never fit me – my head is really big/small! Can you help?
Yes. I initially started making hats, because I could never find a hat to fit me… my head is huge! Admittedly, most of my off-the-peg hats are standard sizes, but a bespoke hat will be made to fit you. I will measure your head size, and make sure that the hat fits you comfortably.

Wedding Dog Chaperone:

Dogs – we love them! They make great additions to an outdoor wedding day – and always get plenty of love and attention from the guests! And with a huge number of outdoor wedding venues welcoming dogs with open arms, there’s no reason you can’t include your four-legged friend in your big day if you would like to. After all, they’re part of the family – so why exclude them from the best day of your life?

A day that’s full of love and connection would not be complete without your dog there to share it with you – and not only that, but pets are known to reduce anxiety, so having them there may help with any wedding day nerves that you have. However, many couples feel unsure about the best ways to include their pets in the proceedings, while ensuring that their essential needs are met throughout the day. So hereare some top tips on how to include your dog in your wedding day to make them feel like they’re really part of the occasion. Woof!

Who will look after them?

Will the weather stay nice? Will the caterers turn up on time? We know the day already holds enough for you to worry about, so having your dog there may just seem like another thing to add to the list. We understand that on your wedding day you will both be too busy to keep an eye on your carefree canine, and you may not want to give one of your friends or family the responsibility of looking after them either. So you may wish to consider hiring a dog chaperone service, such as Precious Pets Weddings.

Pet chaperone companies go above and beyond to ensure that your fur baby is involved and cared for, not only during, but before and after the wedding too. Some of the things you can look forward to with such services are:

  • collecting and pet sitting your dog on the morning of the wedding
  • getting them ready with any wedding attire you may have for them
  • chaperoning to the wedding venue
  • looking after them during the ceremony to keep them calm and assist with any tasks (such as ring bearing)
  • chaperoning and entertaining your dog at the wedding venue for the duration of the day.

You may need to consider how much of the day you want your dog to be there for – whether it’s the full day, most of the day until the evening or just the ceremony. You know your dog and what he or she can handle. If your pup might not have the energy or temperament for the whole day, perhaps you could make arrangements with a friend or a dog-minding service too.

Dog-friendly venues and roles they can have

Obviously a key initial detail you will need to consider if you want your pooch present is to have a venue that will allow it! Not every wedding venue will be dog-friendly, but a lot of them also will be, even if they don’t directly advertise it. It is becoming a very popular trend for weddings, so it won’t hurt to ask the venue if they are ok with your dog being there. Communicating this with them clearly from early on in the process will avoid any stress or confusion later on. Also, a huge plus with planning an outdoor ceremony is that a lot of venues that specialise in this will welcome your four-legged friends.

Once you have secured a beautiful and dog-friendly venue, you can start thinking about the role you wish your dog to take on the day. You may want your dog to simply be a guest of honour at your wedding, but you may also want them to be a specific role in the ceremony, which can be adorable! Popular ideas are a dog ring bearer, flower girl or simply having them accompany you down the aisle. Or how about a man’s BEST MANS’ friend? This can be a real life saver if you have too many human choices for your best man and can’t decide. Nobody gets disappointed! Of course, you can always assign the traditional tasks of a Best Man to different friends – unless your dog is particularly skilled at organising stag dos!

If you are wanting to assign your dog with one these key roles, ensure that your pet has the right temperament to cope with all the attention. Rehearse as much as you can with your dog before the big day so you are confident with them, and they get used to what is going on. You don’t want your dog to become overwhelmed, or cause mischief mid-ceremony!

Dressing them

Your dog is sure to look smart AND adorable in occasion-appropriate accessories, and they will really feel and look the part! Although dressing up our dogs can be super fun and can be easy to get carried away, it’s best to stick to something simple, so they are comfortable. After all, dogs aren’t used to wearing accessories so we don’t want to make them agitated or uncomfortable. Small add-ons such as bows and bowties, floral collars or custom leads are all simple but highly effective!

If you are considering a special dog wedding collar or accessory, make sure that it is safe for your dog first, as certain flowers or foliage can be poisonous to dogs so it is vital to check. Fake flowers may be a better option, but it is still important to make sure that the materials used are harmless to your dog. It’s probably a good suggestion to have them wear it a few times before the big day, so that they get used to it and how it feels. No annoyed pulling-off or crazy itching please!

Extra top tips

  • Prior to the big day, ensure that all of your guests are aware that your dog will be attending the wedding, in case of any allergies, or if any small children are attending who may be uncomfortable around dogs. Although it may seem like a fun idea to have your dog make a surprise appearance on the day, it’s always best to pre-warn of things like that as you want to avoid any possibility of causing issues. A lovely way to do this could be to send out a ‘save the date’ card featuring a photo of your dog.
  • Let your wedding photographer know that you are planning on bringing your dog to your wedding. This will certify that they are ready to capture your adorable pet in action and perhaps come up with some creative and fun ideas for wedding photos.

Our pets are incredibly important to us, so it’s no wonder that more and more dogs are being seen at weddings. Outdoor ceremonies are all about combining love with the beauty of nature, and the animals that we share our planet with count within that too. So why not invite your furry companion to your special day, and enjoy the feeling that comes when uniting all of the wonderful parts of life and nature.

Q1. Could you give me a quote for…?
A1. I have a rough starting price guide but to get a more accurate quote it’s best to book in a consultation. We can sit down and chat through all your ideas. It works well on zoom and my consultations are free! Prices depend very much on what types of flowers you want and the sizes of arrangements so this gives us chance to chat through the details and gives me a better idea of what you’re looking for.
Q2. Which flowers will be in season when I get married?
A2. There are a lot of flowers which are available all year round. Although roses, for example, are traditionally a summer flower, these are often imported from hotter countries and many varieties are available throughout the year. If you have your heart set on a particular flower, it’s worth thinking about this when you’re planning your wedding date. Things like peonies, which are very popular for weddings, tend to only be available during the summer months.
Q3. How do I preserve my wedding bouquet?
A3. If you’re looking to preserve your wedding bouquet it’s a good idea to plan this before your wedding as it’s best to take it to your preserver as soon as possible after your wedding day. It’s not cheap to do but makes a great keepsake! Alternatively, if you want to do something a little more DIY, you can press individual petals between a pile of books using sheets of kitchen roll, or the most popular option… hanging your bouquet upside down in a dark, dry cupboard. Some flowers will dry more effectively than others. You might want to consider keeping them in a frame afterwards to protect from dust and bear in mind that they may drop petals eventually.
Q4. I don’t know much about flowers! What flowers would you recommend using?
A4. Without a doubt roses are still the most popular wedding flower! There are thousands of varieties so the possibilities are endless. However, if you want to veer from the traditional rose posy, mixing in a few other flowers really helps vary the textures and creates a completely different look! Great wedding flowers worth googling are lisianthus, veronica, spray roses, ranunculus (seasonal) and dhalias (seasonal), just to name a few. Of course it depends on what colour scheme you decide to go for too!
Q5. How much do wedding flowers usually cost?
A5. This is the same as asking how long is a piece of string! It totally depends on what you’re having! However, to give you a rough ball part…
If you are keeping it simple with a small bridal party (bridal bouquet, buttonholes, 2/3/ bridesmaids) you can keep it under £300
If you start adding small table decorations or a pedestal for the ceremony, or 6/7 bridesmaids you’re looking at £500-700
If you want bigger table arrangements, or you want to add an archway etc. you’re talking £1k+
There’s no maximum!
Q6. Why are wedding flowers more expensive?
A6. It often seems that suppliers charge more for weddings because they can get away with it! However, a lot more admin time goes into planning a wedding from the initial consultation down to deciding which flowers to order. It might not be seen but all the time adds up!

I do have a studio in the heart of Birmingham which is where all my bridal trials take place.What is airbrush make-up and is it suitable for brides?Airbrush make-up is where I customise the foundation colour to match the bride’s skin and then gently spray on the foundation for picture, perfect wedding day skin that is long lasting and waterproof. It’s ideal for any bride who wants a natural glow but does not want to be caked in make-up.Do you offer hair styling and can you fit in my bridal party?I do offer hair styling, if I am doing a bride’s full hair, make-up and dressing then I will focus on just the bride as I believe in quality over quantity.

My bride’s get the same treatment as my celebrities and I offer a premium service so my packages included a bit extra than just hair and make-up!

When Can I book you?

I take bookings up to 2 years in advance of a wedding date & get booked up very quickly. It is advisable to schedule your wedding with me as far in advance as possible. If your wedding date is very soon, please do still contact me as I may have availability, particularly for weekdays, Sundays & winter weddings.

Please note ~ A minimum of three (to include the bride) make ups must be booked.


Why does bridal makeup cost more?

One reason is timing – Bridal services always take longer to complete than anyone else in the wedding party and so they should because it’s the bride’s big day. The bride is the main attraction and they expect to treated as such.  I’ve met many brides and I can with certainty say that each bride always wants their wedding party to look fantastic and feel great about themselves but in the end, what it comes down to is it’s really all about the bride standing out  and therefore more time is often allotted to the bride to ensure her expectations are met. Time is money, that’s why the bride is often charged more than others.

There is also a lot of background work that’s not seen like emails, messages and phone calls, washing of equipment before and after each wedding, invoicing, advertising, my training and expertise, insurance and time preparing for the wedding.

Now don’t think that your bridesmaids, mother of the bride or any others aren’t going to look good because they are paying less, every client deserves the best possible service available, so you should expect your bridesmaids, friends and family to receive an excellent service on the day and to look beautiful.


Will the makeup be ok if I cry?

It is quite normal to get emotional on the big day. As well as the above, I also use a good waterproof mascara to avoid any smudging.

What do your packages include?

We include a Highlight film, that tends to run just under 10 minutes for your social media, and friends and family, but I also make sure to include an Hour long feature film of your perfect day, ensuring nothing is missed out for when you look back on it for years to come. My colleague Nick and I run a dual all in one package, a team of both a photographer and a videographer who know each other, and work well in tandem, so we can capture every moment remaining discreet and unobtrusive to each other, or most importantly you and your guests.

How long do we have you for on the day?
The platinum package covers 12 hours, from bridal preparations right up to the first dance, but we allow different time scales, so if you only want your ceremony covering? I am more than happy to do that too, and that costs just £250.

Do we get a physical album?

You receive a full digital album included in your package, but we know that some couples love a physical copy. Once you have received your digital files, we work with great local suppliers to get you an album you’re happy with.

I work with a licensed drone pilot who works with me exclusively for weddings, he works both indoors and outdoors.

 How long does set-up take?
We normally arrive about 90mins before the start of the hire to set-up and test all the equipment.  Before we pack everything away at the end of the night, we try to make sure that the happy couple have had some photos taken. They are often busy talking with guests during the evening, so we go and find them and invite them for some photos.

How far do you travel?
We include 60mins travelling for no charge – outside that area we charge a mileage rate
Can you customise the prints?
Yes, we will design the photos to match your theme and colours – they are often styled on the wedding invitations.  We can also personalise the screens on mirrors/pods for you!


Are props provided?
We have a large selection of props we take to each event – but if you’re having a themed wedding, please let us know and we’ll see what we can find to match.

Can the prints be sent to guests’ phones?
Yes – as well as printing the photos (one for the guest to take away and one for the guestbook) we can configure our software to send the images by sms or email, so the guest can share them to facebook or instagram.
 What if something goes wrong?
We always carry plenty of spares including cameras, cables and even a spare printer.  We’ll have liaised with your venue, and probably visited, so ensure we know about access, parking and power supplies.  We don’t want any surprises on the day!
