Say Hello To The Midlands’ First Wedding Hour

We’re so excited to share with you that on Wednesday 9th December we are launching the Midlands’ first ever wedding hour!

You see, we understand that weddings are supposed to be fun, but too often brides and grooms are bogged down with so many unanswered questions that they don’t know where to start, which is why we’ve come up with a brand new, innovative concept to offer couples some much needed advice – completely FREE.

On Wednesday 9th December (and every Wednesday thereafter) between 1pm and 2pm we are offering you the chance to get in touch with a professional wedding planner with any questions you may have – and get an immediate response in return.

Questions can be sent to us on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #AskCarriages and can also be emailed to  with Ask Carriages in the subject line.

For those of you looking for more in depth advice, you can arrange a complimentary telephone or face-to-face consultation with us via prior appointment. The only catch – all questions and appointments must be sent or arranged with the team between the allocated hours every Wednesday.

We promise to get back to you straight away, because we feel it’s important to keep turnaround times to the absolute minimum when working in such a fast-paced industry where things are changing minute by minute.


The Metallic Rose Effect

Date: 22nd November

Event: The Asiana Bridal Show

Location: Edgbaston Stadium

Last weekend we were exhibiting at The Asiana Bridal Show. We felt thrilled to be able to share the space with so many well renowned and quality suppliers within the industry.

For us, exhibiting at an event is mainly about interacting with soon-to-be brides and grooms and offering as much advice as we can to them on the day – hence our consultation-based stand. Part of our job involves styling and theming, which means looking into even the smallest of details that the bride and groom may perhaps not have thought about. So whenever we exhibit, we take our design very seriously.


The Look

Metallic Rose


What we used:

A rose gold table runner

A mixture of metallic gold, bronze and clear glass candle holders

Cream candles

Fresh flowers


Cream carpet

White table lack and blocks



For this event we chose to stay true to our brand identity and kept it very clean, crisp and simple – keeping the emphasis on our logo.

However, to add that touch of colour and warmth we went for this season’s on trend rose gold metallic runner with a mixture of gold, bronze and see through glass accessories and candle holders. A selection of cream candles were used alongside fresh flowers to give a slighter softer feel.

And what better treat for our guests then gold-foiled wrapped Ferroro Rochers, which not only matched perfectly with out colour scheme, but tasted divine at the same time.

On the other side we opted to have stacked blocks to demonstrate the different aspects of our jobs. We had an arrangement of wedding stationery, favours, décor and more traditional objects used for religious ceremonies to show the many aspects of wedding planning, but tied these in nicely with the crisp white look we were going for.
