Fab Suppliers

I've worked with local Nelson wedding suppliers for over ten years,
and I'm happy to chat with you about my experience with them.

I'm glad to recommend the following vendors who have consistently impressed me:

Grand Mercure Nelson Monaco

This centrally located venue has everything you need for a classy wedding:
 space to get ready in the morning, beautiful lawn for your ceremony,
permanent marque for your reception, and a honeymoon suite!

Melrose Historic House

Melrose can host your ceremony and/or reception, or may be hired just for photos.
It's a great wet-weather option!

The Playhouse

This quirky venue has wonderful indoor and outdoor photographic opportunities,
and is especially great for low light images.
It's also close to Rabbit Island or Hoody Park for your Bridal Party Portraits.

Founders Park

Again, a venue suitable for your ceremony, reception, or just portrait photos.
I thoroughly enjoy working in this kinda quirky venue.
The wide verandas and indoor spots make this a great place to shoot when the weather's dodgy.

The girls at Tonic are professional and caring, and know how to look after brides!

The Black Cab Company

This classic London taxi is both classy and practical.
Whether you're attracted to the statement that Betsy (yes, this cab has a personality!) makes,
or you just need a fun ride for all your wedding party,
these are the folk to talk to!
