Summer 2013

Forgive has been a long time since my last blog!  In fact it has been so long I have no idea where to begin.

We have had such a hectic Summer with Weddings, Events and Holidays.  I think a little photo diary might be the best way to illustrate what we have been up to since we last met and what is coming up this Autumn!
 July 2013

Claire and Harry Jackman were married at Weston Turville Village Church, followed by a Reception at Aylesbury Rugby Football Club in July this year.  It was such a pleasure to help Claire plan her Wedding and I'm glad that I could be there to share her special day.  

The Wedding was a very relaxed, family affair.  Guests enjoyed a traditional Wedding Breakfast within the Rugby Club with the room being beautifully decorated by Hire Heaven 

Delicious Cake pops made by Jennifer Cakes.

Evening Guests were entertained by Do Events & Weddings favourite band The Love Handles 


A little added magic was provided by Sylar! Fabulous Cocktails were created by Aaron from the Bar Staff UK.

Later in the evening guests enjoyed a BBQ and toasted marshmallows on firepits.  Whilst others had lots of Rugby inspired fun with the Photo Booth!
Harry and Claire's kind words after their Wedding make my job all the more rewarding.
"The best decision we made! Caroline was an absolute star and a pleasure to deal with.
Caroline you were absolutely worth your weight in gold.  I have no doubt that we wouldn’t have had such a great day if it had not been for Caroline and would have absolutely zero hesitation in recommending her!"

August 2013

In August we took an extended break with the family in Puglia, staying at an apartment in the beautiful town of Alberobello, a Unesco World Heritage Site.

We returned from holiday to attend my cousin Sarah's Wedding at the lovely Ashton Lodge in Warwickshire.  It was to lovely to attend the Wedding as a guest and our son James played a starring role as Sarah & Russel's Page Boy.

September 2013

Do Weddings once again took part in the Ice The Cake Wedding Show at the Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury earlier this month.  The event was attended by over 400 brides and their families.  We offered a free Consultancy and Advice Session to all those who registered and attended the event and we are busy speaking to lots of brides we met on the day. If you would like to book an appointment with me please call 07711 628703 or email:

On Friday 27th September we will once again be returning to The Lensbury, Teddington for the now infamous bi-annual Do Events Quiz Night.  The event is again sold out with 19 teams set to pit their wits against one another in this popular 6 round quiz and the Do Events Quiz Master!

November 2013 

November brings our next Wedding at The Crazy Bear in Stadhampton. This is a fantastic venue - a mix of Asian and British Design, within a 16th Century Public House. The Wedding will be an intimate affair for family and friends with a number of very personal touches and twists dreamt up by the bride. I look forward to being able to share some photos from the day with you soon.

Looking ahead to 2014....

I am delighted to have been asked to plan Shetal and Matthew's Indian Wedding in 2014.  The Wedding has 2 parts, starting in Mumbai, India in February, then moving on to Teddington, Middlesex in April. 

The bride and groom have also decided to hold a Cricket Match at Teddington Cricket Club with a quintessentially English Cream Tea on Good Friday, followed by a Hindu Marriage, Blessing and Reception on Easter Saturday with a spectacular 80s inspired party in the evening.  The whole Wedding will take place in the the beautiful surroundings of Bushy Park.
