Special touches blurb2Special Touches for Weddings
in Devon & Cornwall

However you look at it, it’s those special, individual touches which make your wedding celebrations uniquely yours, so don’t be afraid to let your imagination run free. For instance, there’s nothing that transforms a ceremony or reception venue more easily or quickly than pristine chair covers, adorned with beautifully tied bows in your bridal colours. There’s nothing more romantic than releasing a pair of beautiful white doves and watching them soar into a brilliant blue sky as a symbol of your new life together.
There’s nothing more touching than saying ‘thank you’ to your Mums for all the years of putting up with you both, perhaps with a bouquet of flowers, perhaps with a special gift, perhaps just by saying the words out loud during the speeches. Only you know what’s important on your wedding day, but there’s an army of people out there more than happy to help you make your dreams come true. The secret of a very special day is in making every little detail perfect. All you have to do is have the ideas.

Talented artist Amy Beesum has turned a lockdown project into a thriving business, making beautiful bespoke handmade and hand-painted parasols. Each parasol is made from scratch out of a weather- and fire-proof material and the interior panels handpainted with flowers or birds. Even the frames are handmade on a lathe by her father.

They add elegance and style to any reception and, best of all, you can take them home afterwards as a unique memento of your day.
