Add a grand finale to your night with a glittering send-off

Whiskey Bar

Put together a grand display of the finest whiskeys, add some ice, garnishes and sodas for the perfect whiskey bar.

Candy Bar

Adults and children will love this tasty addition. Include some decorative goody bags and this display can double as your wedding favours.

Singing Waiters

This seems to be a popular option already. You’re in for some excellent example of multitasking as these waiters serve up dinner then belt out a few tunes.

Prosecco Bar

Everyone loves Prosecco! Let you guests jazz up their own with some added extras like fruit and a selection of fruit juices.

Ice Cream Cart

Who can say “no” to ice cream?! I know I couldn’t! Indulge in a cool treat with all the toppings.

Jazz Band

Get your guests out on the dancefloor with some music that they can’t help but move to!

Gin Bar

Gin seems to be one of the trendiest spirits this year, so why not please your guest with you very own Gin bar.

Doughnut Wall

Okay, this may be one of my favourites… Who doesn’t love doughnuts! Add this tasty addition to your reception for a delicious and eye-pleasing display.


Let your guests leave with this fun memory and the perfect wedding favour.


If you’re an animal lover this one’s for you! Whether you including beloved pets in the ceremony or choosing to include a petting zoo in the after party you’re sure to hear a few “awes.”

Surprise Talents

Fancy a magic show or maybe even firebreathers? Keep the entertainment going with a special act or two.

Photo Booth

This one is a classic and for good reason! Help guests document the night with some fun accessories for some silly snaps.


Another glam way to end the night…sparklers also make for gorgeous photos as you exit the evening as newlyweds.
