Blimey O’Riley! Mid-June and we are already half way through 2018. We swear it goes faster and faster each and every year! Summer is thankfully upon us and the shorts and sandals are firmly on.
So, what have the team been up to for the past six months? Following a short, but very welcome break over the Christmas and New Year period, it was straight back to it. In the first quarter of the year, we delivered fabulous and certainly varied letters and words for a range of corporate hires. From January through to April, we were delighted to supply light up letters for hire to a selection of companies. For example, BOOHOO for a Student Promotion at MMU Student’s Union, and HERMES at the stunning Titanic Hotel at Liverpool Docks. It was especially fantastic to work with the team at Place Northwest for the third time running this March. Our letters always look amazing for their CANNES DO celebrations at The Prinicipal Hotel in Manchester.
This June and July of course sees our annual hires for high school proms and university balls. As well as PROM letters, schools and universities are lighting up the dance floor this year with hires such as ‘GRAD 2018’ or ‘#CLASS 18’.
In between our corporate and party hires, we continue to work with lots of lovely wedding couples throughout the North West. Wedding hires have taken the WTG delivery team the length and breadth of the North West. From a fabulous wedding near Lancaster at New Year to wedding celebrations in Cheshire, Liverpool, Chester and Rochdale, Oldham and Preston in ensuing months.
With the wedding season hotting up, the summer is shaping up to be another busy season.
With its sparkly introduction in the Spring, this forthcoming summer wedding season will also see the debut hire of our beautiful and spanking new metallic copper Seraphina Wedding Backdrop, alongside our classic light up letter range. Hand painted in metallic copper with rustic white washed pallets and featuring hanging vintage Edison bulbs, the backdrop is supplied with a choice of romantic wedding phrases such as ‘It Was Always You’ or ‘And The Adventure Begins’. Keep a look out for Seraphina appearing on a well known blog very soon.
We are also super-duper excited to see our newest creation in all its gloriousness in what will also be a new venue this summer for the WTG team.
Things to look out for coming up…..
In between our lovely hires, we have quietly been working away in the background on a number of different exciting projects.
In April, we were simply stonked to take the lead in organising an absolute ‘blinder’ (quite literally!) of a styled photo shoot, bagging some of the best professionals in the wedding industry to boot. Working alongside respected and award winning UK wedding industry professionals such as Vickerstaff Photography, the amazing Verdure Floral, The White Closet Studios and The Vintage Beauty Parlour was an absolute privilege. A key highlight of our shoot was to be provided with incredible grooms wear by Garrison Tailors, a luxury UK menswear brand owned by Steven Knight (the creator of Peaky Blinders itself)!
Showcasing several of our brand new products available for hire, including our unique Seraphina Wedding Backdrop and boxed METRO LOVE letters, this wedding shoot is a certain feast for the eyes. For fans of the cult TV series The Peaky Blinders, the resulting images are a must see. For any other bridal couples out there, we promise a stack of deliciousness too.
Due for publication on a leading UK wedding blog mid-July this year, we are so excited we may just pee our pants!
Finally, we are a matter of weeks away from introducing the second of our new wedding backdrops for hire. Featuring a circular metallic silver frame this backdrop promises to be a beautiful addition to your wedding venue décor and the most romantic of backdrops for your ‘I do’s’…..Watch this space for its release date.
