There is something very exciting happening in one of Coco’s very own wedding venues… The classically elegant Fulham Palace, is playing host to a rather fabulous event – a luxury Bridal Sample Sale by Emma Hunt. the designer Emma Hunt is a wedding dress designer specialising in bespoke bridal wear, based in London, blending couture
On Tuesday I shared my Wedding Venues Search Tips… Because I’m nice like that.
But today lovelies, I’m searching for something from you.
I’m looking for real Brides and real Grooms.
Let me explain in a little more detail…
As you will see, if you take a little stroll through the pages of Coco Wedding Venues, we showcase our beautiful wedding venues through bespoke write-ups and stunning moodboard-esque galleries.
The photographs used are a mixture of ‘dry’ photos of the venue spaces as well as stunning real-wedding imagery.
By using photographs of real-weddings our lovely, newly-engaged couples can see the venue in action, allow them to envisage their own wedding styles and of course take inspiration from the delicious decor and details.
So, with this in mind I would love to hear from gorgeous couples, who happen to be linked to one of our stunning venues and are happy to share their journey…
Is that you…?

So you’re engaged… Congratulations lovelies!
Know what you’re doing…? No…? Ummm… I didn’t either.
Once the festivities of the initial engagement news have fizzled, the next big question on everyone’s lips will be when and where will the big day take place…? Yep folks it’s time to get to the nitty gritty of actually planning your wedding.
This is a big thing. Huge.
In fact for most people it will be the biggest project they take on… For those who aren’t a Project Manager / Stylist / Florist / Accountant (you get the picture) the whole process can be a little daunting. Now I do have some experience in managing events and managing people. In a previous life it was kind of my job. But when it came to planning my own day, I too felt a little lost sometimes. So I’d like to help… With one area at least. For many, this will be the first and most important step – The Wedding Venue search.
The venues in the Coco Collection have all been chosen for their style, luxury and expertise when it comes to hosting beautiful weddings – so you are in very safe hands with these friendly folks!
However, each Wedding Venue is individual and of course, very special, so to help you get the most from your Wedding Venues search and to ensure you can paint the W-Day of your dreams upon your chosen Wedding Venue, I have put together a list of questions and tips…
I thought I would share some of these tit-bits with you today…
Let’s get started shall we…?
- Is the venue licensed for Civil Ceremonies?
- Can the venue hold the Ceremony and Reception?
- What local authority does the venue come under?
- What is the venue capacity for both the ceremony and dinner?
- Does the venue have a specific suppliers list they would prefer you to work with?
- What is included in the hire price? (Hint: Catering, Coordinator, Accommodation etc)
- If the venue has its own caterers does the price include a tasting?
- How flexible is the catering to suit your wedding style? (Meze boards, sharing platters, hog roasts, BBQs, formal dining, street food?)
- Will your wedding be the only wedding at the venue on the day? If not, how many weddings do they hold in one day?
- Can you hire the venue exclusively?
For now I’ll hand you over to the gorgeous lady herself…
notes from Amber
Where flowers are concerned, December is the month of contrasts.
On the one hand you have the rich, Baroque shades of anemones, tulips and violas with their jewel hues of amethyst, claret and rich sapphire blue. These colours give a wonderfully luxurious feel which, combined with their exquisite touch reminiscent of the texture of velvet, gives an impression of sheer opulence, of roaring log fires and flickering candlelight.
On the other hand you have the crisp, clean lines of amaryllis, the intricate detail of muscari and the whimsical romance of mistletoe – all in countless shades of white.
Set against the foil of winter foliage these evoke images of chilled champagne in crystal flutes, twinkling lights and walking on a snowy winter’s morning.
