Silver Candelabra Hire

Silver candelabra hire has always been popular from our range – but why? silver candelabra hire

Our ever popular silver candelabra is probably one of our most popular pieces and it’s look is timeless. Our silver candelabra hire, with their classic shape, fits perfect with wedding elegance or corporate events with the WOW factor. We also love to mix these silver candelabra with our striking black ones, alternating on each table – this works well for large events to create variation per table.

Silver candelabra hire – it is affordable!

Candelabra are traditional and with their height create a show stopping centrepiece. The candlelight creates a dramatic ambience. But all of this is also extremely affordable! Our silver candelabra hire is £16 per item, including candles.

Candelabra are stunning! One of best things about our silver candelabra hire is that we have matching floor standing candelabra available and these are used  at the top of the ceremony aisle.

If you have more of a budget and want to create a bigger impact then on top of our silver candelabra hire we can organise event floristry for you too! Pictured here is a full arrangement of gyposophilia and sweet avalanche roses (used as part of a Scottish Wedding Directory Magazine shoot!), but one of the most popular is with hydrangea and avalanche roses, or white avalanche roses and thistles – check out the pictures of all our silver candelabra hire arrangements on our Facebook page! We also love placing posies of flowers at the base of the candelabra or adding in hanging crystals or pearls – so many different looks for one item!

If you require a quote for our silver candelabra hire, or our popular black or gold styles, then get in touch with us here at Make Believe!

Wedding Fairy Lights

Make Believe Events have become experts in wedding fairy lights and canopies throughout the UK.wedding fairy lights

Whether it is fairy light canopies in marquees, barns, stables, castles, church halls, hotels or courtyards we have gained vast experience in various designs and styles.

Wedding fairy lights are most commonly done in marquees and here we can offer them in a linear design (which mimics the shape of the ceiling) or a pea design which goes from a central point. The most popular option is definitely the linear design but some marquees suit other designs better – ask us what we think is best!

Another popular location for wedding fairy lights in ceiling work is in the ceilings of barns or halls where there are rafters involved – again we work with the shape of the space and what fixtures are available to make the canopy look its best.

We always like a challenge and some of our fairy light canopy installations have taken some very special planning! But we love working out ways we can achieve a fairy light canopy – even in the strangest of places.

We also have the fabulous new festoon lights which work well alongside our fairy light canopy work, and this creates lighting in outdoor spaces too. You may also want to consider adding in hanging lanterns (either illuminated or not) or pom-poms in to your fairy light canopy – just ask for options!

What kind of wedding fairy lights do you use?

Our fairy lights are industry standard – these are specially made for event work. They are LED so take little power and as they are custom for event work they only require either 1 or 2 power points (which may not seem like an important factor but most venues have a lack of power points!)

If you wish to see examples of our wedding fairy lights then check out out Facebook page.

Ivory Chair Cover Hire

Ivory chair cover hire is starting to feature more within the Make Believe Events portfolio.

Although white chair covers are the most popular of our colours, ivory chair cover hire is really becoming popular this spring!

Why ivory chair cover hire?ivory chair cover hire

Ivory is a definitely a statement of luxury to make at a wedding, It is a departure from the traditional white however is not too much of a impact as some of our colour or black chair covers are. Ivory chair cover hire works well if you are looking for a rick colour scheme and to show luxury at a venue. Some of our most striking schemes have been with ivory chairs and a deep colour sash such as burgundy, aubergine or hunter green, and some of our most luxurious looks have come from the ivory being teamed with a lace sash.

Ivory chair cover hire has always been popular for corporate events in luxurious venues- it works well for the elegance of a small private dinner when teamed with a gold. Make an impression! The picture in this post shows a mix of gold and black sashes against the ivory – both look rich and give a feeling of luxury.

When using ivory covers for a wedding where the scheme is a mix of white and ivories it is normally cost effective to use the venues own white table linen. Using this white linen and then adding in ivory napkins continues an ivory and white theme perfectly. However if you would like ivory chair cover hire alongside ivory tablecloths we are able to provide these for you too.

There are two options  – sculptured chair covers and polycotton for our ivory chair cover hire and these can be found on the chair cover section of our website.

The best place to see examples of our full ivory chair cover hire service in action is on our Facebook page – here you will see rooms dressed in ivory and the great impact this gives.

Wedding Florist – Make Believe Florist

Are you looking for a wedding florist?

wedding florist

It might be that you have found the event side of our company first – did you know we have our own in house event and wedding florist team? Make Believe Floristry works hand in hand with us here on the events side of Make Believe and we often work together to create show stopping events and weddings.

Our head wedding florist is Christian who is fantastic with coming up with ideas to compliment your event and fit within your budget. Our floristry work regularly features throughout the wedding magazines, especially the Scottish Wedding Directory where the candelabra features above was used in a recent wedding shoot.

 Why use Make Believe as your wedding florist?

Firstly our florist team are very talented – the quality of their work can be seen in the finish of some of their photos of their work on the dedicated wedding florist site for Make Believe Floristry or on their Facebook page – www.facebook.com/makebelievefloristry. Alternatively check out the wedding florist part of our event page.

They are able to work to your budget – if your chosen flower is out of season then with the experience that our florists have they can suggest alternatives that will give the same effect and shape for a lower price point.

By using both sides of Make Believe to organise your wedding you will have continuity between the different aspects of your day – colours will be co-ordinated together and set up times arranged. By having the same team organising the bouquets/buttonholes as your centrepieces you will have a link between the flowers and style. By having one supplier for both it means one less thing for you to worry about!

We really recommend having a chat with the wedding florist team – you can’t help but note their enthusiasm for floristry and their passion for their work. You will want them in your corner for your big day!

Venue Draping – Wedding venue transformed

Venue draping can change any space for your big day or corporate event.

venue draping

Mel and Karyn’s wedding was a real highlight for us back in May. We transformed a normal function suite into a breathtaking elegant space. The main transformation was from the venue draping – it made a blank canvas, with soft, floaty finish to be able to shine uplighting on to create a romantic ambience.

 

Why venue draping?

 

Although this wedding was in a lovely hotel function suite Karyn wanted the suite to be changed with venue draping. However, the biggest call for venue draping comes with town and village halls (and we have some brilliant photos of these set ups we will showcase soon!)

 

Draping allows ugly walls or hanging pictures to be hidden. It is great to hide sections of the room like bars or partitions to create a more romantic setting for a ceremony. The whole room doesn’t need to be draped to use draping effectively, though I think you will admit that with this wedding the whole venue being covered does create the wow factor!

However, it wasn’t just the draping we did for Mel and Karyn – we created the entire look! White sculptured chair covers and a white satin sash (with added sparkle!) kept to the soft feel, and our gorgeous diamante charger plates, white dance floor with named vinyl, crystal goblets, starlight backdrop and starlight tableskirt completed the look! Our uplighting was set to a striking hot pink which meant the whole glowed for the evening reception. The whole style looked elegant in its simplicity and finishing touches.
Karyn was a great bride to deal with – fantastic vision and we are so pleased she loved the end result!
All photos of the decor and venue draping are from Richard MacFarlane
