( Charlotte & Ben 8th February 2014 Newton Hall)


I met with Charlotte at the beginning of 2013 to discuss ideas for the theme of our wedding which was to take place on New Years Eve that year. We had decided on a theme of Northumbrian Winter and had a few ideas, but not many, of how we could possibly achieve this. From the moment we walked into her office I felt I had her full attention and she quickly understood my vision of what we wanted to create. Her understanding was a huge relief to me because although we had an idea of the atmosphere we wanted to create on the day neither I nor my now husband are very artistic and would have no idea of how we could achieve the magical finished look that we had envisaged.

I managed to describe my limited ideas to Charlotte and she talked me through some ideas she had that would help us achieve the finished look. She was interested in what we wanted to achieve and this filled me with confidence that she had our best interests in mind. She asked questions about the venue, my dress and the colour themes and she was able to come up with some fantastic suggestions that complemented the parts of the day that had already been organised.

She quickly sent us a detailed quote which presented the ideas we had discussed in a well laid-out format. I was pleased at that point that I had found someone that we could trust to manage such an important part of the day.

I didn’t get a chance to see what Charlotte had put together until I was walking down the stairs at Eshott Hall to meet my husband-to-be and the registrar on the landing where we would be married. Although this was an utterly overwhelming experience I can honestly say that one of the things I remember most at this stage, even when there were 1001 things running through my head all at once was that the atmosphere was magical, just as we had imagined, and more. There were candles and willow on the windowsills and candles on the staircase which gave a wonderful warm winter glow. It felt like dusk both inside and outside of Eshott Hall which felt so poignant that in the last light of the year I was marrying my best friend in such a wonderful setting.

This certainly is not something we could have created without Charlotte’s understanding of our requests and our vision and her talent for The Finishing Touch into our day. I cannot emphasise enough what a fantastic job she did. We would recommend her without reserve.

Hi Charlotte, Just wanted to say thank you so much for the decor at our wedding. The room looked fantastic when it was all set up. The bows looked awesome!! We also had a happy accident with the teapots as there was so much dry ice ordered( my fault) that they used in on the bar when we walked into the room to quite a dramatic effect! Thanks again.

" We used The Finishing Touch Company for our chair backs and other decorations. I didn't even see them, they just arrived, set everything up perfectly and then removed them all again the day after- It was brilliant!"

Kim & Aneal 

We booked with The Finishing Touch Company after going to a Wedding Fair at As You Like It.  They had a number of areas set up showcasing what they could do and supply and it all looked amazing.  We booked an appointment immediately.  After that our only problem was choosing what we wanted, there were so many options.  Charlotte was great at offering help and advice and was happy to supply as much or little as we wanted.  .  Throughout my time dealing with The Finishing Touch Company everything was easy and stress free and Charlotte was so helpful no matter how many questions I asked or how many times I changed my mind.
