What people say

For our wedding we hired the candy cart, easel and frame, log centrepieces and other various bits and pieces which Tracy recommended to us. We were absolutely thrilled at how amazing our venue looked when we had finished decorating it, better than I ever imagined.
The candy cart was stunning and the log centrepieces turned out great!
Tracy gave us ongoing help and advice on the run up to the wedding and on the day itself.
She gave us reassurance and calmed our nerves, as she went above and beyond to help us.

As a bride planning a wedding can get very stressful so anybody that can take this stress away is a god send, for us one of these people was Tracy. She really understood all of my ideas for our day and took the time to offer ideas and uses for all of her beautiful crockery etc. Tracy even took the time to hand make our bunting to match our theme, she went above and beyond and my husband and I will be forever grateful.
