This was a big year for gold and rose gold but in this blog I wanted to pay homage to Silver. Mercury silver made a big impact in 2016 and its popularity was still strong over the last season. While some themes come and go, silver is a classic decoration and seems set to stay, which is just as well as we have an abundance of lovely silver and mercury in our stock!
Below are some of the best pics from last season, I think you'll agree that if you are looking for a fresh, light decoration silver is a really good place to start.

The weekends weddings approach with another wedding to be styled at Hothorpe Hall & The Woodlands along with florist Julia Dilworth. I wanted to devote one of my advent blogs to Julia from Julias Flowers. I have known Julia since the start of Nerissa Eve Weddings and I always look forward to working with her. Not happy churning out the same style season after season, I love that Julia is always up for a challenge, like us Julia is always keen to explore different ideas and mix things up a bit. As the years have gone by we have been lucky to work with some fabulous suppliers and its always nice to be able to recommend someone to couples who you know is going to look after them well x
Below are some of the great things Julia has done. if you are looking for a florist who is friendly and produces outstanding work give Julia a call for a chat. .
These are just a few of the weddings we've worked on together, head over to Julias website to have a look at some more or give her a call for a chat.

and a quick share, too many blogs are way too wordy, mine included!
This was another one of those weddings where I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the bride. Frankie came to see me and fell in love with our rustic props. She had a clear vision for how she wanted her Barn wedding to look and it was a real pleasure to be a part of it. The Ashes Barns Country House venue in Leek, Stoke on Trent was a bit of a trek for us but it was definitely worth while.
Can I just say that this was the nicest floral arrangement I have yet seen on our barrels, Beautiful!
We styled an apple crate stack along the back wall with lanterns and foliage. We placed pressed glass cake stands in the apple crates ready and waiting for the bridesmaids bouquets to complete the look.
Frankie liked the idea of her table plan blending in with its surroundings. We used our rustic sign posts and hand painted each table onto chalk board arrow signs. It was a real success particularly with the fields for a backdrop.
For any of the items featured in this blog get in touch for a chat or pop along and view the props and decoration.

We started making bespoke chalk boards and handmade accessories fairly early on. As an illustrator these items have always given me a much needed creative outlet. Following my Arts degree for too many years I put my passions on hold which has always left me feeling a little lost, if your from an Arts background you will understand exactly what I mean. Within the first year of Nerissa Eve Weddings I realised there was a huge need for wedding signage, chalk board art and handmade items within the wedding industry, in fact roughly 90% of all of our weddings order something creative in one form or another. I love watching the plans unfold, the opportunities to style weddings and our lovely handmade products being a part of someones big day.
Below are some of the handmade products that turn our office into a hive of creativity during the mad season, and we just love it!!
Fingerprint guestbooks are particularly popular and something we love to create. The more personal the drawing the better!
Glass baubles with a personalised feather inside make original favours and lovely keepsakes.

This large wedding is possibly one of my favourites for two reasons, the fabulous bride & groom, well their entire family really and the venue Keythorpe Manor (we love any opportunity to work at Keythorpe Manor). We first met Rumbie (bride) at a Keythorpe Manor wedding fair and hit it off straight away. The family then came to visit us and view the items and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this wedding, the build up, the emails, the conversations and meetings and of course the final day. From start to finish it was an experience I will always remember. We used our glass cylinder vases with floating flower and candle on log slices for the simple centrepieces along with our show stopper tall vases with a fabulous rainforest inspired floral arranmengt by Julia Dilworth of Julias Flowers to add drama. For their backdrop we hung a simple drape either side of a large rustic wooden plank board on which we handprinted their monogram using a curtain of ruscus across the top of the drapes to tie the look together. The cake table looked amazing with a fabulous floral arrangement by Julia to support a very large seven tiered cake!
Here are some pictures form their big day x

Todays share was a lovely wedding at Mythe Barn in July. If you are looking for a Barn style wedding Mythe Barn should really be on your list of venues to visit. The approach to the barn is beautiful and the barn itself has been renovated to an extremely high standard. For this wedding we used our rustic door table plan with matching vintage door knob table numbers. They also hired our ivory 6 arm candleabras and birdcages, log slice centres and ridged mercury votives with tree stump tealight holders to complete the look. In the bar area we installed our giant chalk board backdrop personalised with the bride and grooms messages and large travel trunk filled with props for an alternative photo booth. We added some hand painted flowers to the chalk board, something I love to do and works particularly well on the mirror signage too. Outside our vintage bike welcomed their guests. The beautiful floral arrangements were by Jessica Mary Flowers.

Nerissa Eve Weddings chalk board art and wedding signage
Nerissa Eve Weddings founded by two sisters Nadine Nerissa (with a background in art) and Laura Eve (with a background in theatre). 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 varying budgets we were surprised to find very few companies encouraging 'Dry Hire' and honest pricing so we have made it our mission to do just that. All of our products can be viewed and collected from our expanding storage facility. While we are more than happy to help you style your wedding, we are also here 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
