OUT OF THIS WORLD
A showstopping option for a wedding, The 2 Lisas offer an elegant and dazzlingly unique aerial performance to captivate your guests during the celebrations. Choose a gentle-paced, freestyle movement to music as your guests enter, or even have your welcome drinks poured from above by an aerialist hanging upside down! The two talented acrobats will then perform the big spectacle moment, guaranteeing a wow-worthy performance. There's even an option for the bride or groom to climb up and spin around in the hoop - a photo opportunity not to miss!
Cornwall-based cake artist and designer Emily Hankins is renowned as one of the UK's finest hand-painted cake specialists. Fuelled by her passion for baking, blooms and all things beautifully handmade, her intricately crafted cakes have earned her international acclaim - and now she has a stunning new website that showcases her exquisite work in all its glory. From fine florals and landscapes to meaningful quotes and magnificent displays of edible teacups, each of her cakes is designed individually to perfectly reflect your vision and wedding day.
RELIGHT THE FIRE
Inspired by Cornish wineries and run by a family in north Cornwall, Vineyard Candles combines natural wax candles with hand-cut repurposed wine bottles to create beautifully designed and incredibly scented candles. Choose from drink-inspired options including Merlot, which is bursting with berries and spicy scents, Gin & Tonic, with the fresh aroma of juniper and lemon, or even Mojito, with its zesty cocktail fragrance rich in lime and mint. Gorgeous as a bridal party gift or to dot around your tables, they're sure to bring the celebratory atmosphere.
Creating grazing tables that not only look spectacular but taste it too, The Cornish Grazing Co will bring mouth-watering magnificence to your wedding. Combining your choice of cheeses, meats, fruits, vegetables, olives, hummus, nuts, and more - and of course, all the artisan bread, crackers and chutney you need to accompany the delights - each table is created to your tastes and preferences. With props, layers and foliage set up by the team to really give your grazing table the wow factor, it almost looks too amazing to eat...
A fun way to invite guests to your wedding, we love The Wedding Tea Towel Company, who'll print all your big day info on a tea towel in a design of your choice (and they're post-box friendly, so no giant postage costs to worry about). Chosen by Wed Magazine's very own Rebecca and Brendan for their wedding, they're unique, on-trend... and practical too!
