View our work at the beautiful Bluebell Vineyard for Rory & Kate

It was a huge blank canvas – a stylist’s dream! We loved working with this creative, couple from London to capture their vision and really bring it to life. They had visions of a twinkling fairy light canopy creating a magical ambience as the lights reflected from the thousand wine bottles that lined the room. A huge entrance was created using bespoke draping techniques to give the WOW factor as guests entered the Mill for the first time. The weather was perfect and we really felt we were in the South of France. What an amazing day…..

View our work at the magical Warborne Farm for Tom & Caro

This is one of our favourite weddings of the year! We were so delighted to be asked to help Tom and Caro create their dream day. The beautiful couple chose our full styling package and the whole NYA team set off down to the New Forest to completely transform this working farm into a stunning backdrop for their big day. The happy couple chose a striking hanging table centre design using our staggered festoon lighting, hanging gold table numbers and glass baubles all adorned with fresh foliage and wild flowers. We created a 30m wall filled with fairy lights which was a beautiful backdrop for their speeches and Wedding Breakfast. The guests enjoyed the sunshine filled afternoon lounging on our white deck chairs, hay bale sofa areas and resting against our barrel poseur tables. The guests were entertained all afternoon with our wooden garden game selection and bespoke Polaroid frame hanging from our moon arch – the perfect, stylish photo booth backdrop! As dusk turned to evening the lighting really did transform the venue and give it that WOW factor. The beautiful festoon hung across the courtyard and the snuggle blankets and fire pits really did create a perfect end to a perfect day. Thank you Tom and Caro for asking us to be part of your day. xxx

Mr & Mrs Smith

“NYAID helped us out at short notice with some lighting at our reception. The guys were helpful and patient during set up and take down, working around the rest of the chaos that is setting up a wedding venue! They set up a fairy light canopy across the beams in our venue and they looked spectacular! Everyone commented on how lovely the hall looked and the lights really helped set the atmosphere – thank you so much!”

“We can’t thank you enough for decorating the barn for our wedding. It was truly amazing! Your idea of using the ‘floral hanging wheel’ and the draping was fantastic and created the romantic feeling that we wanted.”

“Not your average I do delivered us a beautiful end product in their decoration of our wedding venue, but my favourite thing about them was how easy to work with they were always professional and forthcoming with experienced advice but also friendly, flexible and really fun to work with :)”

Mr & Mrs Rayner

“Kelly and her team were wonderful when decorating and organising our wedding venue. We chose an unusual venue that doesn’t usually do weddings but they made our vision and dreams come to life. We were so grateful for all their hard work and time. Kelly was always available for me to talk to if I had any concerns and she managed to find things that I needed to fit my vision.”

Mr & Mrs Lange

“We had already arrange to hire some crates and a foliage chandelier from NYID for our wedding which were to arrive on the morning of the big day. The day before the wedding we were told we could no longer have our wedding outdoors due to strong winds. After a couple of phone calls with NYID they had completely flexed their plans and movements to arrange to come to the venue that night and set up an arch indoors, they even had a contingency plan for the next morning should the wind disappear!”

“I wanted to say a huge thank you. Rob and I were so delighted when we walked in and saw the amazing transformation. It all looked beautiful and elegant. I know the venue owners were not the easiest to work with – and I really appreciate that you took on the challenge and made our party stress free and perfectly organised. Thanks so much Kelly – we’ll definitely come back to you for future parties (and several friends have asked me for your number too!).”
