Exhibitors Exposed

Explore our cream of the crop suppliers

It’s round two of Exhibitors Exposed and time to reveal some more of our fabulous exhibitors who will be there on the 16th October ….

Who are you and what do you do?

We’re Neil and Becky Butterworth, of Butterworth Photography, we capture the story of weddings in photographs. We create timeless images whilst ensuring you’re relaxed and having a wonderful time on your wedding day.  To compliment your wedding package we can also include a classic bridal boudoir shoot and all our couples enjoy an engagement photo shoot.

If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would be doing?

We’d like to think that we’d be developing a little holiday home business.   The idea of creating happy holiday breaks for people, in the lovely Derbyshire countryside also really appealed to us in the past.  I think Neil would be great at dishing up a good cooked breakfast for guests in the morning and I’d love trying to create the perfect holiday for people.

If you could have any bride in the world as your client who would it be?

Becky – Michelle Obama, I love looking back at the Kennedy’s and I think Michelle is the most classic first lady since Jackie.  You can see the warmth between her and Barack and it would be wonderful to photograph them together.  I’m sure the white house would make for a good engagement shoot location and the group shots could be interesting too!

Neil – Elle MacPherson …… (Becky “I think that says it all, I don’t think an explanation is required here!’)

What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference?

It’s exciting that we’ll be meeting lots of couples looking to create their perfect wedding.  We loved the buzz of the last event, that everyone wanted to spend time to talk as it was a fabulous place to be.  It’s a quality event with all the suppliers being brilliant at what they do.  They’ll be a team of us there to chat about what we do and we’ll also be moving about the Roundhouse with our camera’s taking photographs of  the wonderful ladies wearing Jackie Thompson Couture.

Who are you and what do you do?

We are Mango Acoustic Duo and we perform live modern songs, stripped back to the basics. With myself (Charlie) on Vocals and Will on acoustic Guitar and singing backing vocals, we provide a modern alternative to other typical wedding music. We are the original “modern acoustic duo” and have been performing at weddings and events all over the country for the past 5 years.

We typically perform 2 x 45 minute sets over any part of your wedding day, be it the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast or for the early evening entertainment. We also offer to learn a special song for brides & grooms, usually to play as a 1st dance, or for the Processional/Recessional during the ceremony. We also welcome couples to choose their favourite songs from an extensive setlist for us to play during our performances.

If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would you be  doing?

Ummmm…. probably still working on cruise ships performing for people all over the world – we spent many fun years as a 5 piece band! However, being in Mango is the best job ever – we get to perform for very happy occasions and help create fabulous memories and evoke emotions, and of course get to go to parties every week!

If you could perform for anyone in the world, who would it be?

It would have to be any Bride or Groom that hire us to perform at their weddings. They are the most important people to perform for – just knowing that they want us to be a part of their special day beats performing for anyone famous! Having said that we have performed for a few celebrities in the past including Jay Sean (we played at his brothers wedding!) Ken Barlow from Corrie, Len Goodman, Willie Thorne and various footballers (all wasted on me and Will as we aren’t big footie fans!) We were once playing in a hotel where “Take That” were staying, and Mark Owen popped in our dressing room and asked whether we’d had a good gig! What a nice chap.

What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a  difference? 

We are most looking forward to being a part of a ‘non traditional’ typical wedding fair. We like to think that we bring that ‘something different’ to weddings and it is great to be part of such an amazing wedding event. We invite you to come and see what we can do and how we can enhance your big day – please do come up and say hello and feel free to pick some songs from our setlist for us to play! We’re looking forward to meeting you all soon! xx

Who are you and what do you do?

We are Tineke floral designs, and we provide exquisite wedding flowers and are based in a lovely shop in Matlock, Derbyshire.

If you weren’t doing what you are, what do you think you would you be doing?

Whatever I was doing, I would certainly always have lovely flowers at home as I enjoy them so much, would maybe like to teach floristry or randomly work in forensics!

If you could have provided the flowers for one wedding which has been and gone, which would it be? And why?

Victoria and David Beckham, I can still remember getting very excited about the hello magazine and seeing what flowers she had – we all love Posh spice at Tineke! David is lovely too – did I tell you we sat around 20cm from him at the spice girls concert?! My claim to fame.

What are you most looking forward to at the wedding event with a difference? 

I am really looking forward to trying out some new ideas that we have for flowers and always like to get together with all the other amazing suppliers. That is all, thanks so much for your time and see you soon
