When Helen and I first launched The Sequin Collection we knew we’d need some pretty spectacular tableware to really bring out the sparkle of our linens. The hunt for glass charger plates began. As soon as we saw the Gold Beaded Charger Plates at Whitehouse Event Crockery we knew we had to have them. I’m also completely obsessed with the gold cutlery they’ve recently added to their collection and can’t wait to use them on a shoot or at a wedding.
The first set of photos, by the talented Natalie Martin, are from Laura and Byron’s wedding at Eastington Park, and I think you’ll agree that these place settings and those gorgeous blooms are the perfect match.
The company is run by Marc Gough and based in Manchester which might seem a little outside my usual corner of the South West but Marc delivers nationally and internationally so I know I’ll be able to source what I need no matter the venue.
Each year more and more of my couples are looking to source amazing plates and glasses for their tables whether it’s coloured chargers or mismatched vintage crockery. I love the fact that people are being so creative with their choices because it makes such a difference to the overall look of the day. Whitehouse have a really extensive range and great customer service so I never hesitate in recommending them.
A white plate is immediately transformed when paired with a beaded charger and can be a cost effective way of adding detail to your table and still using the venue or caters crockery.
For me a big aspect in building relationships with suppliers is knowing that they’re there when you need them. I work with The Wedding Wishing Well, a charity that organises weddings for those who are terminally ill, sometimes at very short notice. The first time I contacted Marc for help he came straight back saying ‘no problem, just tell me what you need’. It was so appreciated on the day and looked amazing.
