The Wedding of Katie and Andy took place at Key West on Bournemouth Pier. in August of this year The package chosen by the bride and groom was our “on the day management” which meant that we took care of last minute details and decorations and running of the big day in order for the bride and groom to relax and enjoy themselves.

With the ceremony taking place in the morning at The Townhall in Bournemouth, Bellissimo arrived early at the couple’s chosen venue to start the transformation. The chairs were covered and finished with burgundy sashes and each table centre piece had burgundy balloons to match. The couple had a love of Las Vegas and their wedding reflected this. Each table was named after a different Las Vegas hotel from The Venetian to The Bellagio, and guests had a personalised poker chip to take away as a memory of the day.
Guests arrived at the venue for a drinks reception shortly followed by the happy couple who were transported down the Pier in true style……….on a golf buggy! Despite the rain falling all morning the sun managed to shine just in time for their arrival.
Food for the day was a BBQ and hog roast which was enjoyed by all of the guests. Some truly heartfelt speeches followed and one extremely comical one with photo props by the best man with help from the groom’s brothers.
After dinner the party got started and Las Vegas was bought to Bournemouth with the arrival of Absolute Fun Casino. Guests enjoyed gambling away their wedding money with some big winners and sadly some losers!
Evening guests began to arrive just in time for Katie and Andy to take to the dancefloor to the beautiful voice of Alicia Keys singing “If I Ain’t Got You” with the guests joining them on the dance floor the party got underway and guests really were dancing all night.
Our on the day management package helped Katie and Andy to enjoy the last few weeks of lead up before their wedding with Bellissimo taking care of the last minute details and taking over the supplier contact allowing them to enjoy their last few weeks of looking forward to their wedding rather than worrying over the details. We helped then to source their chair covers and arranged collection and fitting on the day and returning after the wedding thus saving them money. We arranged the collection and setting of their wedding cake so they did not have to on the day. We decorated the venue for them in their chosen style. We produced and agreed with them a schedule for the day and distributed to their suppliers so that everyone knew exactly where they were meant to be and when and we were the first point of contact on the day so that the bride and groom were not disturbed in the lead up to their wedding or on the day. We were there all day to oversee the setting up and smooth running and helped to manage the food service for the day and the evening.
We were delighted to receive a lovely testimonial from Katie and Andy which you can view on our Testimonials page. If you are interested in discussing an on the day management package with us please contact us for further details and a complimentary consultation. Our packages start from just £450 but we always manage to save our couples money with our supplier contacts plus this small price purchases piece of mind and no stress!
Congratulations Katie and Andy – it was a real pleasure to help you on your special day – thank you for chosing Bellissimo and we wish you both the very best wishes for your future together.
