Now for a post about the fabulous Ali Cook and Katie Daniels, of the equally fabulous Bristol Vintage.
I've known Ali and Katie for many, many years after we met at Aardman Animations. I've worked with some exceptionally talented people over the years and these 2 are among the best. They are truly, truly passionate about vintage and about people. A pretty perfect combination to help any bride put together the perfect wedding reception.
Their collection of crockery is simply stunning and their collection of vintage props is as extensive as it is eclectic. Their long-standing love of vintage means they have some amazing sources. They can find anything. Ali's love of shopping is pretty infamous and I get soooo excited to see what fabulous vintage finds she'll come up with from her latest shopping jaunt.
They can cater for up to 200 people for weddings, parties, film premieres. Just name the event. As far as we know, Bristol Vintage have the biggest collection of original babycham glasses for hire too. Babycham glasses! How fabulous. They work with some of the best destinations in Bristol such as Goldbrick House and hold fabulous regular cream teas at Hotel du Vin.
I think that Ali and Katie are pretty confident in what they do. But they're also extremely humble. Never likely to really, really big themselves up. So here I am to do it for them. They are absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt, the choice when it comes to vintage crockery and prop hire, event styling and organisation.
Their creativity, their energy and their all-round loveliness is pretty hard to beat. I love 'em. Here's just a few images from their amazing collection...
