OUR little black book

There's so much to organise when planning an event, so we've listed our preferred suppliers to make your planning a little easier.

Love / Life Photography

Carina is a degree qualified, professional, photographer and the owner of Essex based Love / Life Photography. She specialises in Weddings (UK and destination), event, portraiture, commercial, travel and interior photography. When working with Wedding couples she will treat you as extended family. Through personal consultations and one-to-one contact, her goal is to make you feel special rather than ‘just another booking’.

Her style of photography focuses on the finer details to build a story of images in a relaxed, modern and unobtrusive way which makes each wedding unique and personal to every couple. As a highly creative and organised person she likes to be involved from planning stages to post production so that the best vision of your brief is realised. She has been featured in County Wedding Magazine, Guides for Brides and Hitched. Carina takes pride in delivering the absolute best, on budget and on time.

Most of her work stems from recommendations or from a list of long standing clients that have time after time entrusted Carina as their photographer to capture an engaging and unique shot.

The Food Station

At the ‘Food Station’ we try and tailor your wedding to your specific requirements and we have many menus and ideas that could work for you, from a very formal 3 course wedding menu, to an informal ‘family’ style menu. In addition we are more than happy to incorporate your own ideas/recipes.

Please do contact me and I will send a full costing with the price broken down into elements, so that you can mix and match as appropriate… you may like a few more canapes to replace the starter or you may like to serve your wedding cake as dessert. However, I would welcome an opportunity to speak to you on the telephone to discuss all the finer details.

Once you have had a chance to think about what you’d like, I usually pop over to your home to discuss your ideas and how they would work in practice. After which, we will invite you for a private tasting to ensure the presentation and seasoning are correct.
