WEDDING PLANNING FOR YOUR BIG DAY
Planning a wedding can be a stressful time. From choosing a venue through to food, drink and entertaining guests, there are so many boxes to be ticked. With that in mind, and from my own time in the wedding and entertainment industry, here’s a list of top suppliers – from planners through to photographers, musicians, DJs, entertainers and venue providers. These are people I’ve worked with so I know they’re good. They cover events around the county – so whether you’re in Harrogate, Ripon, Skipton, York or beyond they’ll be able to help.

LUCINDA TAYLOR: PROFESSIONAL HARPIST
Lucinda – an orchestral harpist – has been performing at weddings and other events (Swinton, Rudding Park and beyond) since 2012. She can travel to any venue within two hours’ drive of Harrogate and tailor her music to your needs. Whether it’s while photographs are being taken, during the wedding breakfast, or the ceremony itself, Lucinda will really brighten up the day. From classical through to film and popular – whether your taste is for Pachelbel’s Canon in D, Game of Thrones or ABBA – she’ll keep your guests thoroughly entertained. I really love her music!

GRAHAM FOSTER DJ
Graham is a fantastic DJ whose company – Audio Events Ltd – covers the whole of Yorkshire. He offers a number of different packages and, as well as weddings, is available for corporate events and just about any kind of celebration.
If you want a setting with a difference, then I highly recommend Alexander Weddings. As a new Tipi wedding venue provider, they’re taking bookings from June 2021. The tipis are set in ten acres of beautiful countryside – fabulous for photographs! – with lakeside views and capacity for up to 160 guests. At night-time, the venue can be illuminated to stunning effect. It really is the most amazing location for your Special Day.
So there you have it, my top recommended suppliers. If you’re planning a wedding – or other event – in Harrogate, Ripon, Skipton, York or beyond, I hope you find this useful. (And if you’re not sure about anything, please free to contact me – and I’ll do my best to help.)
In the meantime, keep safe and well!
