We were asked to produce the Giant Chalkboard backdrop for Market Harborough Robert Smyth Academy's Great Gatsby Prom earlier this year and what a great night! We used our vintage suitcases stacked up either side to frame the chalk board and filled the top suitcase with fun props. Often hired for weddings our photo booth set-up was ideal for the school Prom but it also works really well for general parties. There were over 300 amazing shots so it was very difficult to narrow it down to these, but here are some of the Great Gatsby Prom 2014 images ...
The Giant free standing Chalk Board backdrop is available to hire hand painted with your own choice of verse. Its great for weddings and parties. You can hire it as part of a package with a large travel trunk filled with props or on its own. We have a large selection of vintage suitcases and if you would like to replicate these pictures package prices are available.
This is a large item, you are welcome to collect it from us for your event/wedding or we can quote for delivery. We are based in the Midlands, Market Harborough, Leicestershire. The hire period is 1-4 days but extensions can be arranged. Please contact us if you would like any more information.
There is something very appealing about a table filled with cake stands, of course they look even better with cakes on them! I wanted to share with you our ever expanding collection of cake stands, after a busy season we have expanded our collection now offering enough cake stands for almost any size wedding.
Our crockery and cake stands have been selected for their quality and beauty and our collection boasts many collectable pieces. Based in Market Harborough, Leicestershire we cover a vast area in the Midlands, although we are often asked to quote for delivery quite far a field so wherever you are based its often worth asking.

I wanted to share with you some lovely pictures of our very popular Tandem Bike. 'Daisy' has helped to decorate several weddings already this year and is looking forward to many more weddings before the end of this season.
"The service from Nerissa Eve Weddings was excellent, bike delivered and collected on time, no fuss and perfectly in tune with our ideas. It was a huge success and a total surprise for a pair of cycling enthusiasts... Although a bit biased as Sophie's Mum, all agreed she 'looked sweet upon the seat!' "
Kate Warner, Leicestershire
Daisy has also been to the beautiful Notley Abbey, a romantic country house wedding venue in Oxfordshire owned by Bijou Weddings. Here the bride wanted to use the rear crate for her wedding post, an inspiring idea.
Our Tandem Bike hires for £70 on a 1-4 day hire. If you would like to hire Daisy give us a call or fill in our contact form.
Some lovely feedback from a recent customer.
We made these monogrammed straws for a corporate product launch for Sony's latest product, the party took place at Syon Park in its fabulous greenhouse. The event was organised by Best Parties Ever.
"Nerissa Eve Weddings, supplied us, with very short notice, a fabulous product that added an extra edge to our event. The Straws that she created and deigned for us arrived in perfect timing for our event and looked brilliant in our delicious cocktails! the prefect dainty idea for any event be it a wedding or corporate event".

Our beautiful Tandem Bike has gone out for the day for its first wedding of the season. She was polished and preened and looked beautiful. She'll be back tomorrow for a bit of R&R before her next wedding in two weeks time. She's a busy wedding bee, and we're very proud of her.
Norwood Park was the perfect setting for this glamorous wedding. The beautiful Georgian house set in acres of parkland on the edge of Southwell in Nottinghamshire was the setting for a day filled with effortless style. When I first met Anna she expressed her annoyance that all attempts to source gold touches for her wedding had returned nothing but chrome and silver. We were only too happy to help her in her quest to add gold vintage touches to her theme. We supplied 80cm Gold candelabras for her table centerpieces. These are large dramatic pieces and Anna has left them relatively free of decoration which has worked really well. Anna hired our vintage suitcases to display photographs and for guests to post their wedding cards, I love what she's done with them! Full credit to Hannah Webster from Lifeline Photography who has captured the couples glamorous vintage theme beautifully. Follow the link to see more images from their special day.
Congratulations Anna & James xx

Some really lovely feedback from a recent customer;
"We LOVE our finger print art SO Much!!! Thank you! It is everything and Much more than I was imagining!! You have captured it all through your drawing and I cannot wait to unveil it to our guests in August!!! Amazingly Excited!....It is so bespoke and sentimental to us and I really cannot thank you enough x"
We designed a special finger print guest book for Kimberley but it wouldn't be fair to reveal anything until after her wedding, so here are some examples of our Finger Print Guestbooks. For those of you who haven't yet discovered these, the Finger Print Guestbook forms a lovely memento from your wedding day. It is a clever interactive way to collect special messages from your wedding guests. They leave their fingerprint on your artwork and sign their name or leave a comment to give the appearance that the image is being carried away by little balloons.

We wanted to share with you our new Giant Chalkboard Backdrop that caused a stir at the Buckinghams wedding show last month, we feel it deserves a little right up. The chalk board is personalised with the bride & grooms names and any special message or poetic verse. It accompanies our large travel steamer trunk filled with quirky props to complete the photo opportunity experience as a more cost effective alternative to Photo Booths. We came up with the idea for this when we started to explore different backdrop ideas to accompany our very popular prop box. Brides often ask us the best way to display their photo opportunity, faced with this challenge we decided the Chalkboard backdrop was the most effective method. It helps create interesting photos, your guests can have a bit of fun and the kids love it. It measures 210cm x 220cm, hand painted and freestanding.
The queue was out the door for this wedding expo. We met some lovely 'brides to be' but it also brought together some awesome wedding suppliers who I know will stay in touch. Such is the Buckinghams way! Emma-Jane Wright of Buckinghams Events professional approach encourages a sense of unity, and you will only find the most imaginative and inspirational suppliers at her fairs. Look out for the next Buckinghams Wedding Show at Breedon Hall on the 6th April. Below are some of the other exhibitors from the show. All photographs courtesy of Georgia McGrath Photography.
See you at the next fair!
