A Great Wedding Fair at Leicester's Premier Wedding Venue, The City Rooms

It seems like just yesterday that I was blogging about the wedding fayre that The City Rooms held last Autumn... Well here we are again only, this time, it is definitely Spring (I put the clock forward with both delight and dread: Spring was finally here but I lost a very important hour in bed!)


The very sweet Leah from Golden Apple Stationary was there (her only wedding fayre this year no less!), Digital Dreams videography were out in full force and, of course, a live performance from Adam Thomas and the Souljers to wake everyone up and have some fun! Even Mr Chris Denner made an appearence, wowsers!

We love the team at the City Rooms in Leicester as they're so upbeat and excited about what they do: weddings are such important and special things to be a part of and some suppliers unfortunately forget this. Their enthusiasm for what they do is catching and we always love working with them (especially now that the lovely Kelly has joined them as wedding coordinator.)

We treated visitors to a bit of Paolo Nutini, My Girl and a few other numbers... Short, sweet and surprising is our motto :) To our delight, we had a record nine enquiries on the day itself and several more have come in since!

About The City Rooms

The City Rooms is a Georgian, Grade 1 listed banqueting venue with boutique rooms in the heart of Leicester city centre.

This stunning, historic venue attracts guests from all over the East Midlands and further afield. Built in 1792, it is a venue steeped in history, with many fascinating features, giving evidence of the original plans for the building to become the premier hotel in Leicester. Used primarily as a venue to hold events, The City Rooms is also now open as first intended over two hundred years ago. The four lavishly decorated boutique bedrooms are one of the best kept secrets in the city centre.

Ricky Dicky Cards, Bespoke Stationery

Bet you did a double take on the title of this blog didn't you?! Well I promise it isn't made up, this is the quirky name of a fabulous stationery company based in Leicester. We first met the owner Rikesh at a Wedding Fair at The City Rooms and quickly became great friends. His work really stood out and made a great impression on Adam and I (and the guests seemed to love it too!)

I mentioned Rikesh's company in my last post about the Leicester Wedding Club and warned you that I had to talk about him a little bit more. We've fallen in love with Rikesh's charming personalilty and his modesty about his work. He is clearly incredibly talented and is doing very well with his newly formed business. Whilst he specialises in Asian wedding stationery, he also creates for non-Asian weddings, birthdays and pretty much any event that you could think of! We love his modern approach whilst keeping some elements of tradition in his designs. I've added a few of my favourites to this post but please do visit his website, or follow him on twitter.

We also love him for creating these fabulous chocolate wrappers for our nephew's Baptism... imagine how cool it would be to hand out personalised chocolate bars to your wedding guests: pretty, classy and yummy all at once! Just make sure they save you one :)

The Baptism / 2nd Birthday Chocs!

So, to Ricky: thanks again for the beautiful chocolates... everyone commented on how personal, special and delicious they were! And to you brides: get designing those choccies... your guests will enjoy them on the day (Mmmmmm!) and they'll be sure to keep the wrapper as a souvenir of your day too! x x x



Seal of Approval from The City Rooms, Leicester

It is always such a privilege to be a big part of our bride and groom's special day but, performing in some of the UK's most stunning wedding venues and entertaining thousands each year, we sometimes forget the impact we have on the venue itself and the staff that work tirelessly throughout the evening.


That is why it is such a thrill when you hear that a respected venue gives your performance and expertise their seal of approval, it makes it very special too. Well, The City Rooms in Leicester have made us their recommended entertainment supplier... now isn't that nice of them!


The City Rooms, in the heart of Leicester City Centre, is a truly lovely Wedding Venue with a magnificent Grand Ballroom, great food, lovely staff and is also a very trendy boutique hotel too! I have performed there a few times but most recently for Ron and Michelle Brooks (we love them too, they are a really lovely couple!) The standard of service and attention to detail always stand out, along with the sheer beauty of the Grand Ballroom


Vicky Wilkin, events manager, and her team are wedding fanatics and would love to help you plan your big day. You can call Vicky on 0116 251 5337 or email
