    1 room, 3 looks

    Posted by No Comments

    Most banqueting chairs are not attractive and hence the ‘need’ to cover them up to improve the appearance of the room, is essential. However, and I don’t say this very often, not all chairs need covering as they are rather stylish as they are. As is the case with most leather dining chairs. However as you can see in the following image, the overall appearance of the room can be given a whole new look with the addition of a  splash of colour from just tying sashes around the chairs.

    These ivory leather chairs are given a lift of colour with our two tone sunset sashes. They brighten the room and the colour fitted in with the bridal couples  scheme perfectly. We are happy to offer a sash only service and will pop along to your venue to tie them for you too.

    A stunning room to hold a civil ceremony in and made that bit prettier by the inclusion of our sashes.

    However if you did want to take it a step further you could cover up those black legs and opt for covers too. Shown here with our ivory covers and satin wine sashes.

    Our perfect fitting chair covers complete the look of the room, styling it beautifully for a wedding. Essential…no not in this room with its stylish cream leather chairs,…….. desirable?………..most definitely!!!!!

    English Country Wedding

    Posted by No Comments

    Weddings in grand stately houses are impressive, intimate weddings at tiny reclusive venues are charming but there’s nothing quite like a good English Country Wedding to warm your heart. So on the busiest weekend of the year it was such a pleasure to work at all three types of venues.  Here are a few snap shots of our involvement in a truely English Affair.

    You see images like this in all the magazines, but rarely are you involved in them,  so I was thrilled to be able to help transform this barn in Nottinghamshire for Tina and Dom’s wedding.

    Travelling in style in the Nobility Van busy transporting our chair covers throughout Englands green and pleasant land.

    Oh I just love this, you couldn’t get more charming if you tried.

    The interior of the barn was swagged with ivory fabric creating the illusion of a marquee, all the tables were dressed with crisp white linens and we added our covers and gold sashes, embroidered sashes and top table swag as a finishing touches.

    Renewing your vows?

    Posted by No Comments

    It’s been a busy, long summer in the Land of Nobility, and it’s not quite finished yet.  We have had the pleasure of being involved in some stunning weddings at some of the regions finest venues.

    However we have noticed a mini trend happening for couples wishing to renew their vows, 3 in total for us this summer, such as Gemma and Simon who marked the occasion with the wording they chose for their embroidered sashes.

    Couples renew their vows for many reasons, maybe to celebrate an anniversary, to throw a big party if their initial wedding day was a small affair, if the couple were married whilst living abroad  and wish to demonstrate their commitment to friends after returning from a time away or many other reasons, who knows, maybe its just to be romantic!!!

    Many renewal services have a similar feel to a  civil ceremony with all the trimmings – chair covers included of course – however there are far less restrictions on the dos and don’t. A celebrant can lead the proceeding and it does not have to be a registrar.

    Who knows maybe in 2020 our brides and grooms from this year will be getting in touch to celebrate their 10 year anniversary and need chair covers for as they renew their vows!!!!!

    Personalisation Personified

    Posted by No Comments

    Been to many weddings recently and now starting to plan your own? Looking to find ways to add a couple of personal touches? Look no further. Here are some suggestions which are easy to incorporate into your day.
    Table Names: Something that can be unique to each couple, whether you choose to name the tables after places you have visited together, your favourite songs or your favourite tipple – this is always something I look out for when I am popping the chair covers on as I love to see what people opt to ‘name their tables’.  My favourite to date?…….’I love you’ in 12 different languages!!

    Cake Toppers: Although I consider the choice of cake to be a very personal statement anyway, whether you go for a highly decorative cake or a refined simple cake, you can also have a bit of fun by including toppers to perch on top of your cake which always raise a smile when they are executed as perfectly as these toppers here.

    Love Hearts: A popular choice for many couples as you can print your names and wedding date on each tube. Lots of fizzy fun and it won’t break the bank. Who didn’t relish these great love heart sweets as a kid

    Embroidered Sashes;…… of course!! From the hundreds we have stitched it’s always nice to get new wording choices. I love Michael and Valerie’s selection of ..’to have and to hold’.   Other popular words are, Always and Forever. On Our Wedding Day. Each one is stitched individually and is a brilliant keepsake for your special day.

    ……….and the list goes on, personalised printed napkins, candles, engraved cake knife etc etc. So many ways to add personal touches.
