A stunning opulent wedding at a beautiful venue. We used our 80cm glass footed vases with our 100cm silver candelabras to create height. In a very large room like this its always a good idea to go for tall centrepieces that take the eye up. These were dressed with floral balls of hydrangeas and roses by the very talented florist Julia Dilworth. To compliment the centrepieces we used our mercury candle holders in a variety of heights and mercury votives. A lovely touch on the head table was the vintage silver coffee pot set used as a vase with pretty rose flower heads. The look was pulled together by the touches of black and white and the giant Love letters. The sun was shinning and the Orangery at Kilworth House looked set for a very elegant party!
Embracing the versatility of our decorative altar, I wanted to share with you our Mandap/civil ceremony alter/Chuppah. I was approached by a bride back in October 2014 and asked to help her organise her wedding, a mix of English and Hindu traditions. Her ceremony was taking place at the glorious Keythorpe Manor in Leicestershire so it wasn't going to be difficult to make Kayleighs wedding splendid. We designed an elegant decorative ceremony alter that could be used for traditional Hindu ceremonies, English civil ceremonies as well as Jewish wedding ceremonies. With a lightweight structure, its easily transportable and large enough to fit six chairs beneath (the bride & groom, with their parents) and we finally had a chance to see the Mandap installed for Kayleigh's wedding this weekend.
A Mandap is a covered structure with pillars for the purpose of a Hindu or Jain wedding. The main wedding ceremonies take place under the mandap. Traditionally, the wedding mandap is decorated using kalashas (pots filed with water), garlands of mango leaves, coconuts, banana leaves, etc. although modern Mandaps use fabrics, lights, crystals and flowers. A haven kund (fire box) is placed beneath the Mandap and forms part of the wedding ceremony and I cannot wait to see the official pictures from Kayleigh's wedding so I can fully appreciate its beauty. It has been a real pleasure working with Kayleigh and her family, and after countless emails that I will miss! we pulled together a beautiful wedding with lots of lovely elegant touches.
Stocking a range of high end centrepieces to hire. Tall centrepieces are a great way to create impact in a large room but also allow your guests uninterrupted conversation across the table!
We stock different height candelabras available in 80cm, 100cm and floor standing with finishes in Gold, Silver and Cream. Our beautiful 80cm glass vase with an elegant shaped foot is a stunning centrepiece also available in silver. Pictured below with a gorgeous ball floral arrangement and an inspiring twiggy blossom arrangement both by Julia Dilworth at Julias Flowers illustrating the versatility of this piece.
Our standard hire period is 4 days to allow you the time before your wedding to make all the necessary arrangements, extensions are also available. Based in Leicestershire we offer delivery and collection to your venue and cover a wide area*

We added these large beauties to our stock recently and they are already proving to be a very popular hire item, they may overtake the Tandem Bike! Brides have just 'got to have them' regardless of their location! The barrels are currently in London for a promotional whiskey launch and they are off to Manchester later this month for a wedding. I have resisted the temptation to restore them too much so they have just the right mix of nostalgia without looking too worse for wear.
We currently have 5 regular 200L barrels (perfect height to form tables) and 2 gorgeous taller Poser tables but we will be increasing this soon. The poser tables are 107cm tall with a circular glass top and optional corks that sit beneath the glass. You could also replace the corks with black and white photographs for an alternative look. We have 2 widths of rustic plank table tops as pictured here - 150cm sits nicely on 2 whiskey barrels and is the perfect size for your cake table or cocktail table and a 300cm plank table top that sits on 3 barrels, perfect size for your buffet table.
If you are interested in hiring the whiskey barrels please get in touch.

We have recently added these fabulous glass cake domes to our collection. They can be hired with their matching glass footed cake stand but we rather like them perched on varying height log slices.

We have a large stock of candelabras in Silver and Gold finish. Pictured above our very popular Gold Candelabra to add a touch of glamour to any wedding or event. These are 80cm tall in a high gloss gold plate. The striking height of these candelabras allow for uninterrupted conversation between your guests and they look so pretty they require very little floral decoration.
Candelabra hire starts from £17.50, the Gold candelabra hires for £25 each over a 1-4 day hire period.

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!' "

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.

Our names are Nadine Nerissa and Laura Eve, hence the company name. Following our own weddings in 2012 we noticed a gap in the industry for suppliers of hire items that offered something a little more unique and at realistic prices hence Nerissa Eve Weddings was born. In this world of DIY weddings and realistic budgets we were surprised to find very few companies encouraging couples with 'Dry Hire' terms so we have made it our mission to do just that. All of our products can be viewed and collected from our expanding storage. While we are more than happy to help you style your wedding, we are also very pleased to assist you with styling your day your way by yourself. Through our love of weddings and artistic background we want to help brides bring their ideas to life. By talking to us you might be surprised what is possible with a bit of creative flair xx
