Supplier Spotlight

Planning the engagement in eight weeks meant that the couple’s opted to seek the help of a host of local creatives, and Emily Hannah Photography who worked her magic to capture all of the precious moments throughout the day. Thanks to these suppliers, and Maryams creative flair, the pair were able to put together a staycation spectacular which not only marked their upcoming nuptials, but also their six-year anniversary.
