Frosted Candle Jars

We are rapidly approaching Christmas so I thought its time to find a DIY festive project to add to a seasonal finishing touch to winter/christmas weddings. Jam jars are very in at the moment and this seemed like a reasonable simple DIY project to undertake – if not for thisyear, may be 2013 Christmas. Any way this following Video was created by Hobbycraft and the more detailed tutorial can be found [button link=”http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/Pages/Ideas/Idea.aspx?id=1480″ linkTarget=”_blank” color=”rosy”]here[/button] Frosted Candle Jars

Lillie & Tom Wedding Feedback

Chillington Hall Wedding Video // Lillie & Tom from The Finishing Touch on Vimeo.

Q. As a newly married couple, what would be the best advice you would give to a couple just starting out on their wedding planning journey?

A. Get the venue sorted and then the important people for the day I.e bridesmaids ushers best man etc. the rest will fall into place after that.

Q. What is the best memory you have from your wedding day?

A. Walking out of the church and saying to each other ‘We did it! Now let’s go party!!’

Q.  Why did you decide you wanted a video recording of your wedding day?

A. Tom’s parents had their wedding video playing at their party for their 25th anniversary and we want to have that for our children to see!

Q.  What memories did the video provide which your photographs didn’t capture?

A. The hubbub of people talking and dancing. Photos can be deceiving as it looked like a quiet wedding but really it was busy and full of fun and the video shows that.

Q. Where did you get the idea of party games from?

A. We wanted something fun for the children to do. A lot of the comments as we were planning were people saying remember that wedding when we had to wait four hours whilst they were having photos. So we thought we ought to have a few things to help entertain if things dragged on too long

Q. Why did you decide on Finishing Touch for your video?

A. It was a very reasonable package with two videographers. We found you online I think or maybe at the nec? It was a long while ago now!

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

A. Yes. The day went very smoothly and still when we talk about the video people say oh I didn’t know it was videoed! So it was obviously done discreetly or they were well distracted! Either way a good service and a good finished product.

DIY Favour – ‘Pie in a Jar’ wedding Favour

Planning a wedding can be a little overwhelming, so the last thing that you might want to do is start fiddling with bits of glitter, paper and bows. But making your own wedding favours does not have to be that way. When planning your wedding favours, think simple, economical and something that your guests will actually want, not something they are likely to throw away the next day meaning all your hard work goes to waste!

We love these really cute ‘Pie in a Jar’ wedding favours, which can also double up as your dessert – learn how to make them on Green Wedding Shoes.

Rhys & Claire Wedding Video at Hinckley Island

Q As a newly married couple, what would be the best advice you would give to a couple just starting out on their wedding planning journey?

As newly weds we both agree that if your going to get married the most important thing for us was our memories of the day we had various opinions about videography but we wanted to see hear and live those moments again. so make sure you look into it because once done those moments you can’t get back we are so glad we did.

Q What is the best memory you have from your wedding day?

Our best moment from our wedding day was seeing the happy faces and the love that our wedding had created in our guests as a bride I still we’ll up now looking back at how happy and in love everyone was on our day.

Q Why did you decide you wanted a video recording of your wedding day?

Friends of ours had their wedding recorded and when seeing their DVD we knew we wanted that too. But also some very special family could not be there because of illness and now they can share in our day by watching this with us.

Q. What memories did the video provide which your photographs didn’t capture?

We got to watch back our speeches which at the time almost went in one ear and out the other so it was nice to hear and see things I didn’t notice on the day. Also watching us make our vows to each other something photos just doesn’t quite get fully.

Q. Why did you choose The Finishing Touch?

Friends if ours who got married a year ago used your services and when I watched their video I, as the future bride, was overwhelmed with emotion. You really captured the magic of their day so it was an easy decision to make.

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

We would definitely recommend finishing touch and already are doing so we have a lot of upcoming weddings and are encouraging them to all go for it.

Q. Why did you choose the Hinckley island Hotel for your Reception?

It provided rooms for our guests so we could see them the next day, it had a beautiful backdrop and provided everything we needed to make our day perfect. We definitely would recommend it.
