Lots of Brides to be and their excited families braved the snow to come and speak to us and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Heatherden Hall, Pinewood Studios earlier this month. The venue and its spectacular grounds offer a very unique and impressive place to Marry situated at the heart of the world famous Pinewood Studios.  Heatherden Hall has a fascinating history, being privately owned by a number of notable individuals. In 1900 the house was transformed into a Victorian showpiece with a huge ballroom and a Turkish bath. In the 1920's it became a retreat for politicians and in 1934 it was bought by builder Charles Boot who later met J. Arthur Rank who went on to become his partner in the studio project. Many famous movies were filmed at Heatherden Hall including Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Carry on Films.

We met some lovely suppliers including Avica Bridal, Vesuvius, Andrew Gleed Photography, Floribundi Flowers and Theme Marriage.

Do Events & Weddings are now supplying Vintage Crockery for parties and Weddings. A list of prices are listed on our Website here. Please contact Caroline Doughty Smith for more information and pictures.

March Madness

Last week I visited the National Wedding Show at London Olympia. It is one of the biggest Wedding Shows in the UK and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting lots of excited Brides to be and made some great new contacts with a number of exhibitors.

I met up with the team from a fabulous new and exclusive Wedding venue - Ocean Kave, near Westwood Ho! in North Devon.  The venue offers bridal couples bespoke Weddings with 5 star accomodation for guests, quirky and stylish marquees, all set in an area of oustanding beauty with endless breathtaking sea views.

It was particularly nice to finally meet Gillian Million, who like me is also based in Teddington. Gillian's stand was packed with Brides, Bridesmaids and Mother's of the Bride all desperate to have a closer look at her beautiful bespoke Headdresses, Veils and jewellery.

I also met up with James Robinson the Founder of Jalloro Weddings. James is a designer and photographer with a difference and I was particularly drawn to his work as it offers brides something a little bit different from the norm and draws on his design background. Jalloro's party trick is to print & deliver memories from your Wedding or Event on the same day.

Photo Booths are now a very popular and current addition to many Weddings, offering immediate and fun and very personal Wedding photos and videos! A number of the Brides I am working with at the moment are including them in their budgets as a must have item!  I met with a couple of Photo Booth Companies at The National Wedding Show including Smiley Booth and Picture Booth and I look forward to working with them in the future.

If you would like to meet up with me to discuss your Wedding, Do Events & Weddings will be one of the exhibitors at the forthcoming Buckinghamshire Wedding Show on Sunday 10th March 2013.  The Wedding Fair is taking place between 11am and 3.30pm at the beautiful Pinewood Studios Venue, Heatherden House, Pinewood Road, Iver Heath, SL0 0NH.

We will be offering a 25% discount on our Wedding Planning Services including our Full & Bespoke Wedding Consultancy and our On the Day Wedding Services to all Brides to be who attend the Heatherden House Wedding Fair.

If you would like to feature in Do Weekly, please contact Caroline Doughty Smith today on 07711 628703 or email


We are now a featured supplier on and Mumsnet Richmond-upon-Thames

Looking forward to the launch of new boutique venue No 11 Pimlico Road, not quite a bar, not quite a restaurant who open their doors in 11 days!
