During lockdown, many couples are using the time together to plan their wedding. The problem is of couse that it is difficult to meet up with potential suppliers before making important decisions.
To help, I have joined forces with other wedding service suppliers based in the North West to create my first virtual wedding fayre. Each of them are suppliers I’ve met and worked with at various weddings. I recommend each one of them highly.
Let me introduce you to…
Based in Sale, Ali created Diddibox in March 2009 and, as the business grew, Bec joined her in 2015.

Diddibox can also work to any style of wedding as well as cover a number of locations across the North West and Wales.

For a memorable music option for your big day, consider booking Thackeray Music. They can offer a string quartet or string trio to play at those special moments: the arrival of the bride, the ceremony, the signing of the register and during the drinks reception. The group are versatile and can play pieces from many popular genres such as pop, classical and film music. They can even do special requests if there is a particular song you would both love to be included in your wedding or civil ceremony.
Thomas Demol Photographie
After moving to South Manchester from France in 2008, I turned my passion for photography into a career. I specialise and pride myself in shooting all of my weddings in a relaxed style which goes by many names: reportage, documentary or natural photography. Whatever the name, it’s about sensitively capturing the raw emotions and character of your special day to make it a truly authentic record to appreciate for years to come. I cover the North West but also travel to venues across the UK and abroad should your plans take you there and have several packages to suit a range of budgets.
