Friends of Ellie and Liv - Wedding Suppliers

I understand that planning your wedding requires a huge amount of research, creativity and effort.

Finding the right wedding suppliers who will appreciate and understand the vision and the values you have for your wedding celebration is one of the most important things of all. I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside some truly wonderful and extremely talented people in the wedding industry, and I’m sharing some of them here in case you, too, might want them on your team.
