Pumpkin Centrepiece

Halloween

It's kind of spooky, but with the nights drawing in and that sudden chill in the air it can only mean one thing, yes it will soon be Halloween.   We will shortly be inundated with tiny witches, goblins and numerous white ghosts in the most elaborate attire whom will be parading up and down our streets in desperate search of a trick or treat.

Nicola Joy Wedding Films

Hello! I’m Nicola, a 23 year old bookworm who recently packed in the 9-5 life in favour of the weird and wonderful world of weddings! More specifically, filming and editing cinematic wedding films out of my studio (aka spare room) in Solihull, West Midlands. I filmed my first wedding back in February for a friend of mine, at a beautiful rustic barn in Shrawley, Worcester. I knew how unprepared I was the minute I arrived and saw the array of kit the photographer had bought along, and I stood nervously in the corner of the bridal suite with my one camera wondering what, exactly, to film?! The day went by smoothly, much to my amazement, and by the time the first dance came I was feeling really rather chuffed with ...

Clean Heels

Well summertime is certainly in full swing now, the fashion stakes were definitely raised this year at Ascot with some fabulous coverage from Gok, but we still have some further quintessentially English events adorning the social calendar.

Wedding Decorations Southampton - Facetime

Facetime/Skype Consultations

We hold consultations in the studio, where we have lots of products out on show along with lots of lovely stationery designs to sift through! Some stationery that is not currently on Facebook or on the Website as they are very new samples that may have only just been made and we cant show until the Bride & Groom they were for, gives us permission to do so! So visiting the studio means you get to see lots more designs... Anyway, we think we have found a solution to couples that are not local to us or in fact that maybe can’t get babysitters…Facetime/Skype consultations. We have now held 3 Facetime sessions with couples. It’s great, as the couples can sit in the comfort of their own homes and have ...

New Website

For those of you that have been customers of Laurel Designs already and visited the OLD website you will hopefully notice a very new look for the site. You may well ask why the change? However, if you have already visited the studio you will know why! The old site was white font on a black background and at the time I thought it was perfect and what I wanted to represent the business. I quickly realised that the clients that Laurel Designs attract didnt really like the website if truth be known. One bride in particular was referred to us and when she visited the old site she was put off, and was very close to cancelling the appointment but decided to trust her friend and when she walked into ...
