Mr and Mrs Sharp

Louise, well what can I say?!-She is an amazing person and when we first met her we knew she would be perfect for dressing our reception room for our wedding.

She is very professional and has a great eye for detail, everything had been cleaned and steamed the morning of our wedding and her little touches made the room really come together and look beautiful!

The most important thing to me was how she made us feel individual and not "just another wedding", she cared about what we wanted and gave us great ideas to work with and she was very open to ideas we had in mind.

To me, she was a friend and it made the whole experience easy and enjoyable.

She always promised to give us the "wow factor" and boy did she deliver!

We would highly recommend Lush Occasions-for any occasion!

Thank-you so much hun :O) xxxxx

Hi Louise and Darren, I wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to both of you for making our wedding such a special day. Your professional, friendly, yet personal approach helped to ease the apprehension of the day and provided the atmosphere which we both sought to create  - our guests were truly blown away.The chair covers and bows were perfect, not forgetting the heart-shaped diamanté decorations threaded through the organza bows certainly provided the WOW factor on entering the room. In addition to this, the starcloth backdrop curtain, which was positioned behind the top table, looked great but really came into its own when the lights were turned off for the first dance and disco! With your help , advice and suggestions we had a truly amazing day, fantastic wedding pictures and a thoroughly memorable day! I would highly recommend your services to anyone seeking the WOW factor on their wedding day.


Beckie and Mick

We just wanted to write to say how thankful we are of all of your help for our wedding. We had the most amazing day with our family and friends, everyone commented on how beautiful the room was and how elegant it all looked. We were so pleased and happy with how it all came together; I even cried when we were taken into the room before our guests.  It was breathtaking and so much more than we anticipated. You made our day the most perfect, beautiful day that we will both remember for years to come. We honestly cannot express how thankful we are. You are such a fantastic person, and deserve all the happiness that life brings. We will definitely be recommending you to everyone, and did so at the wedding with friends who we know have upcoming weddings.Thank you for the card that you wrote too on our wishing tree.Thanks so much for the star cloth and the star swags which were brilliant,again they looked fantastic

ALT was recommended Louise at Lush Occasions by the venue where we were holding our annual Gala Dinner. I had been tasked with transforming a large dining room into a venue where our members would be able to enjoy a formal dinner and an awards ceremony within a set budget.Louise was a pleasure to work with - from the offset she was very friendly and was happy to discuss and listen at length on the phone whilst I attempted to describe the various ideas I had for decorations. She then sent me an email with numerous photos of different decorations she could offer within my budget and the various options available. We chose floor to ceiling voile covers for the 10 pillars in the room and goldfish bowls with daisies in for table centre pieces. Along with the tea light candles that we provided ourselves (which Louise happily put out for us at no extra cost) the overall effect was one of soft formal elegance rather than a wedding feel – exactly what we had requested.

Confirmation and payment for our decorations was a very simple procedure, with both invoice and cheque payment options and a simple £100 security cheque. The returns/breakages procedure was well set out and gave us peace of mind on the night as it allowed, within reason, for drinks and food stains that may be typical of formal dinner. Louise was also very quick in responding to any queries I had by both phone and email.

I found Louise extremely professional, with some very imaginative decoration ideas. Due to conference commitments I was unable to meet Louise in person; however Louise kept me updated throughout the day with the progress of the room dressing and checked with me at the event to ensure I was happy with the results. Her prior knowledge of the venue allowed me to feel totally reassured that the job would be completed on time and to the highest standard. At the end of the evening, we simply collected the centre pieces together and left them at the venue where Louise had already arranged the collection details with the duty manager. ALT had a personal follow up call from Louise within a few day of the event and we received our security deposit back within the weekI would recommend Lush Occasions to any company looking for an elegant venue dressing company for a corporate event in the Nottinghamshire area as you will not be disappointed with the excellent decorations and the service you receive.

Jason and I had an amazing day at Breadsall - the room, tables, place cards, table plan and all the rest of your hard work and effort made for the perfect setting! And Louise, you wouldn't believe what a calming effect you had on me just by being there when first I arrived!!Everyone commented on how fabulous everything looked - we really can't thank you enough!!

Thank you so very much once again!!


Annmarie and Sara

May we take this opportunity to send our sincere thanks. You not only did us proud with the rooms on the day but you were always available via email or phone whenever we needed help and reassurance. Lush Occasions is not just a professional company it is also a very friendly and personal company. Everything was perfect leaving us with nothing to worry about. The balloons were fantastic and an excellent addition to your package.

May we wish you much happiness for the future and we will certainly be forwarding your details to anyone interested in decorating an event.

Many Thanks

Louise I just wanted to say a massive thank you! After working with you for a third time in April, you again impressed me and my clients with your beautiful chair covers and attention to detail. It’s a pleasure to work alongside someone who is so passionate and takes pride in her work and won’t leave until everything is perfect! When I arrived at the marquee, it looked beautiful and the bay trees really finished it off. It’s such a load off my mind, working with you, as I know everything will be perfect! Thanks again Louise, looking forward to working with you on many more weddings...


Laura and Alan Thompson

Thank you soo much for dressing our wedding, you were an absolute star. Throughout planning you were very helpful and offered to do anything we wanted. You bent over backwards to arrange for a preview table at Newton Park to give us a better idea, and to let Alan know what we were having. Alan and I were very impressed, it was a pleasure dealing with such a very friendly and helpful lady. I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone! We both had every confidence that the room would look beautiful and we were not disappointed, it was fit for a celebrity magazine shoot. Honestly you will struggle to find anyone as friendly and as helpful as Louise.  Many Thanks again


Jennifer and Simon Hughes

From planning our reception through to entering the venue I was thoroughly impressed with Lush occasions. Louise talked through our ideas and helped us in the planning process. Any time I wanted to ask anything I could call and email and Louise would be a friendly voice to help out. On arrival to our reception venue we were so happy with the results. Louise is very professional and is fantastic at what she does.We decided on the Platinum package after seeing Louise at a wedding fayre. The room was beautiful and our guests loved the attention to detail and how pretty it was. Louise has a great eye for detail and she promised to dress our room as if it was her own wedding and she really did. Perfection. I would recommend her services to any couple arranging their big day. Its worth every penny. It saves all the hassle of setting up on your big day and has the wow factor for your guests and looks great in the photographs. Priceless memories that will last a lifetime.,  Thank you Louise for making our day


Kirstie and Steven Mcpherson

Thank you for all your help on our wedding day to make the room and tables look so beautiful.

We will definitely recommend you to other people and thanks again for working on your wedding anniversary.

When we first walked into our venue it was like walking into a fairy-tale, it was everything we had dreamed of and more! What Louise and her team did was amazing and we can't thank them enough!


Melissa and Michael Woods

Just wanted to say thank you so much for dressing our wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast rooms so beautifully for our wedding day. We had your 'Gold Package' and it really made the rooms look special and saved myself so much work shopping for ccentrepieces favour bags, disposable cameras, etc, and the table centrepieces and chairs with the organza looked lovely. You also swagged the top table and cake table with organza too. You came to our home on your first visit to go through what colours we would like and I thought it was very good that you met with us at the hotel a few months before the big day and set up an example table and chairs of exactly how it would look on the day with the colours we had chosen which was really reassuring. You then took pictures and e-mailed them to me to look at again too.On the big day as I had just finished my early breakfast at the hotel Lush Occasions arrived and started work setting up the rooms for us, you're so friendly and gave me a hug when you arrived that morning and assured me it would look lovely, which it definitely did. Thank you so much Louise and Lush Occasions.

Lush Occasions were absolutely fantastic from the moment we met them at the Wedding Fayre..Louise was not pushy or pretentious in any way, as many folk are when they are trying to sell a product.We really can not thank them enough for everything they did to make the chairs and tables look so beautiful and to a high standard..Regular telephone calls or email contact was not a problem and any special requests we had were met with pleasure...even when adding an extra chair here and there was organised without any fuss..All in all, Lush occasions helped make our special day as perfect as we could have ever hoped for..Many Thanks

Mr and Mrs Kimberley

Lush Occasions has been one of the best companies that I have dealt with whilst arranging my wedding, I have found them to be extremely helpful, very understanding and also very friendly. Lush Occasions made me feel confident about all that they said they were going to do as I felt that my day was as important to them as it was to me, which in turn gave me one less thing to worry about. As they indicated delivery was on time, quality was outstanding and it made my reception room look stunning, all my guests had commented about the room. I feel that the chair covers were one of the most important things for my reception as it changed the whole room completely and made it feel comfortable and look outstanding. Thank you Lush Occasions for making my special day even more special.

Thank you for all your help with decorating our reception - you were the only company who could offer such a personal service and also such great prices. It was really easy to organize what we needed with you and you helped make the last few days before the wedding that much less stressful! And of course the reception looked great - the covers really brightened up the room and the sashes gave it a lovely colour that matched in perfectly, especially the extra ones we put around the room.

Thank you again for all your help,


Mrs Laura Richards

I just wanted to drop you an email to say a huge thank you for your hard work. My reception room looked AMAZING! We had a small budget but you made the room look like a celebrity wedding! Thank you very very much, I would recommend you to anyone, I was a very disorganised bride and you were so lovely and helpful and didnt seem phased by my lack of organisation at all. Thanks again!


Celine and Tom Whiting
