Featured Venue – Langshott Manor

As we come to the end of this ‘Blue Monday’ week we hope that the only ‘blue’ you’ve been worrying about… is your ‘something blue’ for your wedding day! Last week we featured Alexander House Hotel Utopia and Spa on the blog and gave you advice on how to style this elegant venue. If you loved the look of Alexander House, head over to their wedding fair today (27th January 2018) where Kelly [...]

Not Your Average WedFest 2019

The NYA team are back in the office, and we’re all attempting to stick to our New Year’s Resolutions. Some of us had five, yes FIVE, Christmas dinners over the Christmas break (okay when I say us, I mean me) so I’m attempting to avoid the biscuits and left-over Celebrations chocolates… But with team planning meetings in abundance, this is easier said than done! We are so excited about what 2019 has [...]

Five Trends for 2019 Weddings

Happy New Year to all our lovely readers! We’re excited for the prospect of a new year and what this year will bring for us. Last year saw the NYA team win three national titles for the Best Venue Stylist in the UK. Our lighting and fresh foliage installations proved extremely popular and our Moon Arch was THE must-have decor accessory for ceremony backdrops and photo booths in 2018. We’re looking forward [...]

The Four Best Venues for your Winter Wedding

Its sooo nearly Christmas… We’ve closed NYA HQ and I’m posting this from the luxury of my sofa, sat in front of the open fire watching Love Actually - I don’t believe there is anything more Christmassy than 10 love stories and Hugh Grant singing Christmas Carols. Last week we told you what our favourite winter foliage and flowers are. This week, we’re going back to the start of wedding planning and [...]

The perfect winter wedding flowers and foliage

Last week’s blog was all about the importance of lighting at your wedding, particularly in winter. This week we want to discuss flowers and foliage at your winter wedding.  Once your ideal venue is booked you can really start to plan the style for your big day; including the floral and foliage arrangements that are key to dressing your venue and play a huge part in the overall look. We believe venue [...]

Why lighting is so important at your winter wedding

The nights are drawing in, our Christmas trees are up and we’re all enjoying evenings in by the fire, finalising those finishing touches for our last few weddings of 2018. The shortest day of the year, Friday 21st December, is fast approaching; and this will coincidentally be our final wedding set-up of the year before the team begins to tuck into the mince pies and mulled wine (as if we haven’t started [...]
