How to Choose your wedding Suppliers!

It’s Monday!

The day has arrived again, but not to worry it is almost over and soon you will be hope with a cup of tea and Netflix, hurrah!

Just wanted to write a quick post about a recent guide we have been featured in called ‘How to choose your wedding suppliers’, written by the lovely Sheldon over at Almost October. It’s a guide into wedding suppliers from his unique position as a Photographer and serves to answer just some of the questions couples wish to know! Hopefully we played our part well and lived up to his expectations!

Well make up your own mind and take a read here (it’s worth it I promise!):

How I made some design boards

Hello there!

These past 2 weeks have really flown right by and now here we are almost halfway into the month of April! I have of course been learning how to do lots of things and have now worked on two proposals for new clients. To create these design boards I first had to go over each brief to grasp what style of wedding and details they are looking for.

Here at Matthew Oliver we have therefore put together an infographic to remind you of  all the questions you should be asking, to make sure you really get the wedding you always wanted!

Hello world!

I’m Ceri which is pronounced as Kerri. I was born and raised in Barbados and sadly  never appreciated the beautiful beaches and lovely sunny weather until moving to UK just over a year ago. At the moment I am still adapting to British culture and learning new things each week with the help of my fabulous uni friends. Today is my first day in the office and of course I woke up excited and nervous. I was greeted in Bradford-on-Avon by a breathtaking view while crossing the bridge on my short walk to the office and then the wonderful Winston as soon as I came through the door. I couldn’t have asked for a better welcome than snuggles, rubs and licks.

Happy Friday!

My Friday has gotten off to a pretty slow start to be honest, as in getting out of bed this morning was a monumental failure on my part, it just didn’t happen! Though I eventually wandered over to the office to be greeted by a completely justified look from Matthew which read ‘About time you lazy sod!’, oh dear! But we’re happy in the Matthew Oliver office today, I got lots of sleep (woop!), Matthew is listening to Red Hot Chilli Peppers (true 90’s boy) and Winston is having fun playing with his new teddy, a Rabbit affectionately called Boris!

Wedding Planners in Venice!

Yes I know, it’s been to too long! Though I’m here now, sat on a plane after a fairly hectic week in Italy… which is exactly what I want to tell you all about! The Matthew Oliver team have been in full professional(ish) working swing in both Venice and Tuscany this week. I’m sure I won’t need to tell you what we’ve been up to, it’s no secret Matthew and I are ‘trigger happy’ when it comes to photos and the inevitable social media-ing that comes with it! Alas please indulge me as I run through the highlights, if only to get them straight in my head!
