Here are some friends that we love to work with, and think that you will too.
For us here at The Hope Street, one of the greatest things about playing a wedding is being part of an incredible team of suppliers, all silently working together to make sure each couple has the day of their dreams. The wedding community is a wonderful thing, and we've met some incredible vendors over the years that we truly adore. Here are just a few friends of the Hope Street that we'd love to recommend:
Set in the Forrest of Bowland, Preston, Wryesdale Park is a country estate and farm that is the stuff dreams are made of. The barns are breathtakingly beautiful and some of our warmest memories have been made there, sat out in sun, singing to shiny happy people. Wryesdale also has it's own Glamping site, perfect for adding a festival type feel to your day, or even hiring the night before to throw a pre wedding party with the band of your choice...
We have many weddings booked in at Wryesdale in the next 12 months and we cannot wait to be back. https://www.instagram.com/wyresdaleweddings/
The Hope Street Hotel
An iconic part of the city of Liverpool, The Hope Street Hotel shares both our namesake and a special place in our hearts. The views out over the town add such an incredible lift to any event, and for couples that love this old city through and through, it's the perfect choice. The old book room offers a beautiful ceremony back drop, and of course, there's plenty of space for a proper party! What's more, you can bed down over night in some of the cosiest beds this side of the Mersey! https://www.instagram.com/weddingsathopestreet/
Flowers and Decorations
Bluebells and Daisies
Words can't express quite how much I adore Gemma's work over at Bluebells and Daisies. From hair pieces to bouquets, centre pieces to a full room overhaul, there is nothing this team can't turn their hands to, and what wonderful humans they are too!
Often featured at Wryesdale park, we've spent some pretty serene hours surrounded by the floral stylings of Bluebells and Daisies, and it's safe to say that if I could have Gemma styling my home, hair, garden, everyday life, I'd be there in a heartbeat! With packages to suit weddings of all sizes, this is a very special find. https://www.instagram.com/bellsanddaisies/
A relative new comer to the scene, Beth is absolutely one to watch. Her hand crafted resin and clay lines are all made to order and available in a huge range of bespoke designs. It was love at first sight for me when I clapped eyes on Beth's pastel resin coasters, something I'd never seen on an event table before. And her marbled clay earrings, available in beautiful bridal neutrals as well as contrasting colours for bridesmaids are a dream. https://www.instagram.com/crystalbethhhh_/
If you're getting married in the north of England you'll do well to find a more lovely pair than Karen and Lee. A husband and Wife dream duo, they bring their unique mix of heart and fun to every shoot. We've had the pleasure of working together at venues such as Thornton manor, and watching these two in action is a total joy. We can't recommend them highly enough. https://www.instagram.com/willo.photo/
Andy and Szerdi
Andy and Szerdi are London based photographers, perfect for all your bookings down south. They have worked hard to create a recognizable brand with a unique and arty feel inspired by their own love story. Providing both photography and high quality video services, these guys put their all into tailor making their packages to suit your day. We like their style so much they're even shooting our own wedding this year! https://www.instagram.com/andyandszerdi/
Hair and Make-up
So Coco Rouge
Started by two best friends out of a little salon on Hope Street (can you see a theme here?!) So Coco Rouge has grown into an incredible business and a well respected name in Liverpool and the surrounding areas. Personally I adore this vendor because of their quirkiness, unmistakeable style and brilliant "women supporting women" mantra. A real gem of an independent business, they cater to everyone they meet in a way that makes them a truly inclusive beauty provider. You may also recognise their very own Eve Jenkins from a little show called Glow up... https://www.instagram.com/so_coco_rouge/
And of course, Cake
Three Little Pigs Bakery
Let them eat cake! Many of our weddings have featured cakes supplied by Three Little Pigs. Their fun, vibrant, delicious cakes are available to order through their website and are utterly breath taking every time. See also their hundreds of macarons, muffins, cupcakes and every thing in between that can be hand crafted and stylised in a way that makes them ALMOST too good to eat.
