The Cotswold Cake Bee

At The Cotswold Flower House we are so excited to recommend the super yummy and beautiful creations by Rebecca at The Cotswold Cake Bee. To learn more about Rebecca, read below or visit her Instagram page.

About The Cotswold Cake Bee…

My passion for baking began at the early age of five in my mother’s kitchen, where I frequently assisted with cake decorating. Since then, I have worked tirelessly to perfect my craft.

Every Cotswold Cake Bee wedding cake is individually designed to suit your particular style and requirements and can be tailored to co-ordinate with your special day. 

I offer a personal service from consultation through to completion and am perfectly situated for a host of beautiful venues in the Cotswolds.

Pomp & Ceremonies

We are so pleased to highly recommend an independent registrar who offers a personal and bespoke service to couples who want something different to the generic and impersonal ceremonies that are performed by registrars. For more information about Jess and her story, see below or visit her website Pomp & Ceremonies:

So about Jess…

I worked with Gloucestershire registration service for over a decade before launching Pomp and Ceremonies…so after almost 1000 ceremonies, I know weddings!

I meet with all my couples, so I can get to know them, find out all about them as a couple, their story, why they are together, funny anecdotes, important events and all the things that make them tick. They can choose readings, music, traditions and as much fun as they like to be included and unlike the registration service, my ceremonies aren’t bound by centuries old laws or time constraints. Independent celebrants perform ceremonies anywhere! Not just in premises with a marriage licence, so my couples really can have the ceremony of their dreams!

I go and write a script that really reflects them and resonates the style of ceremony that they really want. I’m always on hand for any changes that they may like to make, and I’ve got a great knowledge of the wedding industry in The Cotswold’s should they need any recommendations or inspiration.

On the big day itself, I arrive in plenty of time, to soothe any nerves and welcome guests. I make sure everything is as it should be before the bride makes her big entrance! I perform fun, touching and sometimes very moving ceremonies and then I am there, to cheer the couple down the aisle to their celebrations!

My job is to make the ceremony as important and unforgettable as it should be and to make sure the celebrations START with the ceremony and not after!

I have the best job in the world!

NMG Photography

The Cotswold Flower House is thrilled to be working with the fantastic photographer, NMG Photography. Natasha provides families with a memory that will last a lifetime, that can be forever loved, cherished and shared by her creative lifestyle and portrait photography. For more information and to see her work, read her story below or visit her website NMG Photography

For me photography isn’t about being quiet and still, long are the days of sitting and smiling in front of the camera, it’s about creating moments of love, laughter and life. And that’s why I love being a photographer, because memories are made and captured through my camera, it’s natural and it’s perfect.

I have been living and learning photography for many years, with qualifications and professional experience that have provided me with the knowledge to turn my passion into a career.

You’ll often find me, camera in hand, chasing my nieces around the garden trying to capture every smile, laugh and fall. Because for me those moments are the ones I want to remember, falling over in the autumn leaves with bright red wellies that are too big to walk in. And I want to provide that same joy and happiness to my clients, not offer forced smiles, but real ones. Ones that will brighten even the dullest of days.

“There is one thing the photograph must contain,  the humanity of the moment.”

Ansel Adams
