Wedding gifts and decorations

Posted on: February 22nd, 2013 by Kate Elford No Comments

I took a quick trip to Dunster this week, to visit my favourite shop in the world.
It is full of lovely gift and home ideas and is beautifully presented. This time I noticed a lovely display of wedding things. There is a lovely selection of ideas and helpful advice is there if needed about quantities and colours etc.

If you can’t make it to Dunster they also have a website – www.the5quarters.com

The 5 Quarters is a family run business shop based in the picturesque village of Dunster in Somerset. We have been welcoming our valued customers to the shop since Dec 2004 when we first opened.

Our aim is to bring magic, joy love into people’s lives by sourcing beautiful gifts for you, your home or a present for someone special.
Why is the shop called The 5 Quarters?

Our philosophy lies within the beauty magic found in nature, her elements, seasons cycles. Based on an ancient system, the Wheel of the Year journeys through Air, Fire, Water, Earth Spirit, the 5th element. By re-acquainting ourselves with the elements, we begin to become more conscious of the natural world, which can help bring balance harmony into our busy modern lives.

We have carefully sourced items that represent reflect the qualities of each element, in particular our range of crystals fossils, either in their natural form or set in sterling silver jewellery. ”

 
Dunster as a whole is a wonderful place to visit and is now a place to consider for your wedding, from the planning to the actual day. My photos don’t really do it justice so I would recommend a visit to see for yourself.

Here is a bit about Kate so you can find out more about her –

”I am a freelance writer and photographer working in the south west of England. I have been writing and taking photographs since I was a child and now work with my clients to discover the best way to promote products, convey information and captivate audiences – through words and pictures.

I produce copy for press releases, marketing literature, leaflets, websites, blogs and magazines. My photography work can be linked to my writing, so I can offer a full service to cover news stories and produce illustrated publications. I also welcome photographic commissions for weddings and other events, portraits and library images.”

Lovely photos by SueJay photography

This isn’t a wedding related post, unless you want to buy someone a very lovely wedding gift!
Its just to tell you about a photographer I met recently, Sue Gutteridge.
What amazed me the most was her ability to capture animals so well,
especially deer, the shots are so lovely. My personal favourite is the smiling donkeys.

New Year and New Cake Toppers

Posted on: February 2nd, 2013 by Kate Elford No Comments

Well the new years resolution was to blog more, which as it’s now February and this is my first one, I’m not doing so well. The good news is I haven’t had chance to because of all the cake toppers being made for 2013 weddings already, which is fantastic. Most months are nearly booked up already, which is very exciting with some great ideas ready to be made.

If you would like to book for 2013 I would recommended booking asap so you don’t miss out, and bookings are coming in now for 2014 as well.

A belated happy new year!

January 2013
