In this week’s Livestream Ying and Tracey discuss sweet cart hire and what other options are available to make your evening reception just that little bit extra special.

Tracey is the owner of a business called ‘Scrumptious sweet 4 all occasions’ which is a fantastic concept that primarily offers many sweet products such as popcorn machines, vintage sweet carts, ice cream carts, candy floss machine, chocolate waffle carts and more. Tracey guarantees a good quality service with a very fair price range which depends on how many guests you have to feed. But that’s not all Tracey does, she also offers a full decoration service from Tablescapes to Backdrops and even the odd throne or two!

The main reasons for adding sweets hire are:

  • Food provided by caterers or Venue would be expensive, hiring a stand could mean you save money but cutting the pudding option from the caterers.
  • It adds theatrical entertainment. Dessert served to the table is very nice sometimes, but it doesn’t let your guests walk around to explore or interact with everyone.
  • It’s very efficient, Tracey and her team set everything up before your ceremony and return to assist in the evening meaning you don’t have to worry about anything.
  • Prices are very reasonable and include glassware presentation, decorative cart, choice of sweets, friendly service plus all the untouched sweets are bagged up ready for you to take home!

Scrumptious sweet 4 all occasions provide public liability insurance and a health insurance with their agreements too. Below is the link to their website so you can check out exactly what they offer https://www.facebook.com/scrumptioussweets4alloccasions/

Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you have to make when planning your wedding. They are the person you rely on to capture all your special moments. So Sarah from Caterham Photography joins Ying to give you some tips for choosing the right person.

  • Check their style of Photography, are their images documentary? are they all posed? Are they heavily edited? These are all things which differ between Photographers. Make sure you like their style and are confident they can produce images you will love.
  • Meet you Photographer before the day, although your photographer won’t be spending the whole day idly chatting with your guests, they will have to interact with them and you! Making sure their personality fits with yours is a must you don’t want to find out too late that you’re not going to get on for the whole day.
  • Look through previous wedding albums, look through the whole day’s images not just their carefully selected best images on their website.
  • Have they already photographed at your venue? This isn’t essential but if they have they are more likely to know the best places to take images. If they haven’t they should be willing to scout out the venue before your big day so no time is wasted “looking for the perfect spot”
  • Are they in your budget? Photography is not something you want to be thrifty with – it’s most likely these will be the main things you hold onto after your day. So don’t jump for the cheapest photographer available, if you need to cut down the budget consider sacrificing the “getting ready” shots. Cutting down the time a professional is need will usually save on costs.

And a Bonus tip talk through your ideas with them, make sure they understand what is important to you. If you desperately want photographs with your great aunt Doris or can’t stand certain poses that’s fine but let them know!
