How did Beyond Weddings start?

The idea came to me after several of my interior design clients requested my help with their wedding gift selection, and I found myself choosing pieces which their guests would contribute to. Beyond Weddings started in 2009, it is a sister company to Beyond Design which started in 1993.

Who runs Beyond Weddings?

Beyond Weddings is run by me, Chelsea Bidwill. I am an interior architect who grew up on boats – so I have a keen eye for small spaces and fine design.

What services can Beyond Weddings provide to couples creating a gift list?

The result of using Beyond Weddings is a beautiful home that your wedding guests have contributed to. It is a very practical present, a fresh start at home when you get married. The gift list can entail anything interior wise and it is totally bespoke to you with large trade discounts.

Wedding Busy Activity Bags

When you are planning your wedding, one of the questions that will probably crop up whilst you are creating your wedding guest list will be about inviting children… do we invite them, don’t we, what will we do to keep them entertained?

It’s great to have children at your wedding, but you might want to think about providing them with something to do to keep them occupied, especially whilst the speeches are taking place.
