It should have been our annual wedding showcase this Sunday...We were so looking forward to welcoming hundreds of people through our doors to chat all things wedding! We'd like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who took the time to register with us for the day and also all of you who had booked onto our two lunches.
We've already postponed - of course - to a time when we can be all together again...(date to be announced!) - but we're super keen to spread the Love in anyway we can! We are hoping to arrange a huge celebration lunch when we're able to!
For Sunday - we also had a full day of pre-booked wedding consultations - which we're now hosting via phone calls or FaceTime with a handy lookbook to go through each part of a wedding at The Chimney House and The Mowbray. We're working remotely - so our Head Office is open as usual - You can arrange to speak to us about your wedding, dates and your plans at any time - just drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you booked in to a time that suits you.
Meet The Experts
One thing we'd been working hard to achieve was to bring our guests a stellar line up of experts and friendly faces in our world of weddings to join us at LOVE - so they could spend a magical time on Sunday chatting and inspiring you for allllll the lovely things for your wedding.
Well - here they are...
We urge you to consider getting in touch directly with them if you are planning your wedding - as they are all independent and mostly one-man or one-woman bands who mainly work by themselves - and just like us - would love to hear from you!
It would be excellent for morale in our independent community in Sheffield and we know they'd love to give advice and inspire you - as that's what they do best! Click on each of the links below that will take you to their websites or instagram so you can drop them a line.

We're big fans of Alkimi & Aura - we adore their ethos on natural beauty which is reflected in a small but perfect range of products that are made by Kim in in small batches from her home studio in Sheffield - where she carefully selects only the most beneficial of essential oils.

Drop Kim a line - and we know she would love to to tell you all about treats for wedding - including favours, gifts for your hens and a super special pressie for Mums and special friends - plus of course a lovely regime for you to make you feel tip top!
