  1. Ditch the Following Party (place)

All isn’t as it appears! Before you wonder if we have dropped our marble cake, do not panic! Wedding pro-David Tutera believes guests must stay place – bringing the “after party” into the celebration – and with a terrific place like Bickley Mill, that’s possible. As the marriage is the principal event, the risk it losing some momentum using the inconvenient location change.


Rather, keep the energy flowing, the celebration popping along with the bride and groom boogieing by opening up a new place in the same area and possibly even lay onto a dessert or dessert channel!


For extra fun, consider ice cream, barbeques and macaroon channels in the summertime, s’mores and marshmallows pop-ups at the winter! In Bickley Mill, we also offer you fabulous hog roasts, which are well served at any given time of year!


  1. Pretty Paper (stationery)

Paper is picking up in popularity! Readily available, cheap and possibly eco-friendly, a paper is readily customised to be integrated into anything from the wedding bouquet and dining table plan to great afternoon decor and backdrops.


More and more we see quite paper bouquets, rustic raffia ties, customised cards and posh confetti, all created from card and paper. A timeless fashion that’s guaranteed to last and one which always matches an honest, pastoral wedding!

Inherently amorous, off the off the shoulder dress is tipped to be paired with 3D particulars by designers. Oversized floral ornamentation, stick-on butterflies, and newspaper petals are all likely to be showcased. For your bolder bride, vivid colors (although off-tradition) are getting more popular and include a memorable focal point for some motif.
