The Flower Farm
Buttonholes have become much more relaxed and natural-looking over the past year or so, often created on the natural stem rather than the more rigid wired versions of old. The team at The Flower Farm, based in Burscough, West Lancashire, are finding more and more grooms are adding their own personal touch with the additions of elements depicting their hobbies, such as Lego men or gunshot cartridges.
When it comes to luxury watches and accessories on the big day, who better to put your trust in than Banks Lyon Jewellers in Lancaster and Kendal? Enjoy an ice cold lager or a glass of Scotch while the team cater for your every need – whether that is to bring out the James Bond hero in you by securing the watch of your dreams, or to help you conquer the milestone that is selecting your perfect wedding ring for life. Once you have tackled the somewhat alien feeling of sliding your first cool precious metal ring onto your finger, why not dive into the wonderful world of Deakin & Francis with a personalised pair of cufflinks engraved with your wedding date? Or even a quirky pair of bearded Vikings to go on the sleeve to give her that extra surprise at the end of the aisle?
Your wedding day is all about you, the bride, and so it should be. But what about giving your groom the gift of a lifetime and surprising him on the big day with his very own chauffeur-driven supercar to get him to the wedding in style and on time?
Supercar Wedding has more than 20 stunning supercars across the North of England to choose from, with prices from just £300. Imagine starting married life by saying ‘Adioss X’ to single life in something like an amazing Lamborghini Huracan? We can help you through the whole process, so don’t worry if cars aren’t your thing… we can help select the perfect car for your groom.
You only have to see this groom brought to tears when the stunning black Lamborghini Huracan turns up at the hotel to take him to his own wedding (tissues at the ready, girls). As you will see, even the groomsmen were getting shaky and emotional at the sheer joy it brought their best friend.
