Progress Meeting: Kelmarsh Hall

Ralph, Karen, Ann and I took a drive over to Kelmarsh Hall today for an update chat with Jill, who’s co-ordinating our event. It was an excellent meeting, and we got a lot of the nitty-gritty discussed and sorted.

Then, it was onto market Harborough for a bit of retail therapy followed by lunch at Pizza Express.

We then headed home, using the afternoon to discuss roles, responsibilities for the wedding and the look & feel of the booklet that everyone will get as a keep-sake.

Only 350 days to go!

Port and Champers sorted

We're a lot happier now that the catering arrangements are in good hands. It's allowed us to look at the food/drink in a different light and in more detail. As a result, we've decided to source the Port and Champagne ourselves - as it's a good time of year to go looking!

6.00pm. Mission accomplished - all we need now is somewhere to store it all until December 14th 2011!

Definitely 'Portfolio Events'!

Emma at Portfolio Events got back more-or-less immediately with answers to our initial questions. This is good news and has allowed us to begin to finalise the food and related bits-and-pieces. We have another meeting with them on the 29th January that includes a tasting session sampling all the courses - yum yum!

This is all coming together really well - we feel in very safe and competent hands with Emma.

Caterer selected

Subject to a few final 'tweaks', we've selected the Caterers for the Wedding. We settled on Portfolio. Emma (our contact there) has been superb, and although there isn't much in it, in terms of cost between them and our next choice, overall, they are far more flexible and offer a better value package.

We're going to have a more detailed meeting with them either towards the end of this year, or early in 2011.

The countdown begins...

I’ve added a countdown timer to Ann’s new domain.

It's Official

OK, the official announcement has gone to all our invited friends via their Christmas Cards - they should receive those on Monday/Tuesday. I've therefore changed this Blog's status from private to public - so any one who's remotely interested can follow the journey to our big day!

Caterer Number 3!

We travelled the short distance to Lamport this morning to visit caterer number 3 – Portfolio Events, to see what they have to offer. We met Emma, who was totally switched on, very organised and gave us a really good feel for what they can provide.

Based on all of this, our gut-feeling is that this is the company we’ll use, but let’s see how the prices stack up against the other two caterers!

Time confirmed…

I just spoke to Yvonne (very helpful!) at Northampton Registration Office. We’ve confirmed the time of the ceremony as 4pm.
