And the award for best view goes to…..

We are lucky enough to go and visit some stunning wedding venues.  Yesterday we did the chair covers for Jo and Aaron’s wedding at the hotel at Brighton Marina.

This hotel had the best view and a little terrace which the Chair Cover Elves took full advantage of…!

Rosie and Sam got hitched! 

A few weeks ago, we decorated The Waterside Hotel in Brighton for Rosie and Sam’s purplesque (new word?!) wedding.  Their wedding was really personal, filled with their characters and personalities.  Rosie made a lot of the decorations  herself.  The favours were glass bottle of coke with all their guest’s names on and there were activities on the tables to amuse the children.   For the ceremony, Rosie had made paper flowers which decorated the aisle and they had an archway to say their vows under.  Our friends at Zest took the formal photos and I’m hoping to cadge a few once they have wedited them and presented them to Rosie and Sam.  In the meantime, here are some shots I took once we’d set up: 

All of us at BFC wish you both a lifetime of happiness and joy!  Congratulations Rosie and Sam xx

Andy and Rachel’s beautiful blue and butterfly wedding. 

It’s always an honour to share a couple’s big day, even if it is in a fairly small way.  

We met Andy and Rachel at the Amex wedding fair last year.  They knew they wanted blue but weren’t aware how many blues there actually are!  They settled on a strong royal blue paired with a soft sky blue which looked stunning together.

They got hitched yesterday at the Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells.  A lovely venue with gorgeous grounds.  It was a bit of a grey and drizzly start but the sun won the battle and I hope they managed to get some sunny shots!  



THe BFC production line…

Today at BFC HQ we have been :

Gemming and
Latexing (ooo er Mrs!)

Mr BFC has been busy cutting and we have ordered him a new workshop so he doesn’t have to stand outside in the cold once the weather gets chilly. Exciting stuff!

Today he has been cutting out initial baubles which will then get glittered and prettified, stocking up for the winter fairs we will be doing. He has also cut a new HoHoHo sign which if you look it from the back says ‘oHoHoH’. Watch out for all the new items appearing on the website soon but in the meantime, check out the production line!

Been meaning to post this for a L O N G time.  The erection of BFC HQ.  Donated by the ever lovely Rachel from and put up by Mr BFC with a fair amount of  cursing.  Oh and I genuinely almost died when we put the roof up and it nearly crushed me….  But I lived to tell the tale, hurrah!  Don’t you love the light blue?!
