It sounds cheesy but words really can’t describe how wonderful it was that we found OT weddings to do our wedding – we love the bars in Leicester and it was a dream come true when we found out that they could do the styling catering and all important bar! Mel and Jules were fantastic to work with and the day itself exceeded all expectations – from the beautifully decorated garden for our ceremony to the chalkboard and garden games – and the loveliest cocktail menu I have ever seen – it really was magical – Jules listened to everything we wanted and came up with some fab personalised surprises for us and Mel kept everything on track and ensured we had fab food and drink (she took the stress out of everything for us!). Nothing was too much trouble and we couldn’t recommend then enough – absolute superstars who gave us the best day! Thank you x

What can we say? We knew from the start that OTW would create our dream wedding and they didn’t disappoint. Everything about the day, down to the very last detail, was utterly fabulous. All our guests loved the food, drink, styling and ambience. Jules was an absolute star emailing back and forth with ideas from day one of planning. On the day itself she worked so hard along with the rest of the OTW team. We are in awe of their achievements! The only thing we wish now … we could go back in time and experience the whole day again.
Thank you so much! Mr and Mrs McMullan xxx

“ORANGE TREE WEDDINGS RULE THE ROOST!! Myself and the missus got married in May and used Jules (amazing) Beadle and the rest of the fantastic team, to decorate our venue and feed and hydrate our guests, and it has taken me until now to become un-speechless at how frigging awesome it was! Their attention to detail and pure snazzy pants style made our day not only beautiful and memorable but allowed us to enjoy the whole thing with ease. From the moment we first started planning with Jules until our drunken stopper of an exit as man and wife the whole team made very light work of a mammoth task. If you are planning a wedding and want it to be a true reflection of yourselves and you want your guests to feel welcome, relaxed, well fed and as merry as you like, I can think of no group of smashing people better suited to help you out than #orangetreeweddings Thanks a bazillion, The Tweens xx”

“It’s been 3 weeks since our wedding and we are still smiling at how amazing it was and a HUGE reason for such a special day was OT Weddings! We love you! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, I am fortunate to know Mel and Jules who organised, styled, catered – bent over backwards – for us and we just want to say a HUGE thank you for making our day so perfect. I love to organise and get involved in everything (!!) but I was really conscious of enjoying our day and Mel and Jules just did it all for us.
We had complete trust and faith in everything from the food to the styling, in fact when I walked down the aisle on my wedding day I was in awe of the styling and completely taken aback at how beautiful the hall looked.”

“Orange Tree Weddings organised our wedding party at Quorn Village Hall – we were planning on doing everything ourselves and I’m so glad we didn’t! OTW were amazing, the hall looked fantastic, the cocktails were brilliant and everybody enjoyed the food. They also did all the setting up and tidying up, so well worth every penny! They are also really nice people. Using OTW meant that we could really enjoy our party! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them – just wish we could do it all again – it really was the best night ever!”

“We want to express our HUGE thanks to the OT weddings team – Jules and Mel, thank you so much. It’s been such a pleasure meeting up with you and getting all our ideas together. We always knew it would be good, but the end result was just so utterly perfect. You and all your team did us proud, you really did go above and beyond all our expectations. The venue looked absolutely beautiful and the whole vibe was warm, relaxed and homely, just exactly what we’d wanted – We just wish we could have swept it all up and taken it home with us. The outside space, with the beautifully done-out horsebox, was a lovely surprise and a perfect chill-out zone, and the hula hoops and props box full of hats and wigs kept the all the little ones (and a lot of the big ones!) thoroughly entertained.”

“A perfect day! Otw and especially Jules were amazing from start to finish! Cannot be more positive about our experience. Nothing was too much trouble. The hall looked fabulous. Everyone commented on the wonderful styling. Food and drink were plentiful and delicious. Orange tree weddings created the informal party atmosphere we wanted. The attention to detail was great. So much behind the scenes work goes into each wedding….definitely think OTW is a wedding gem. A wedding that feels personalised and special….thank you thank you thank you. The Smiths” xxxx

“In the words of Tina Turner, Jules and Gareth are simply the best ( Cheesey quote)!
Jules has such a lovely way about her with an eye for detail and nothing is ever too much hassle for her… As for Gareth… any man who can cope with 4 women in the back of his land-rover after a glass or two of champagne has to be a super star! Cant thank orange tree enough!”

Not just us, the guests too, everyone was completely taken aback at how wonderful everything looked,the atmosphere was perfect, the bar was amazing, the food was unreal, and the staff were so so lovely, nothing was too much trouble for anyone. That was the case the whole way through the organising process really, nothing seemed to be much trouble for you! You went above and beyond anything I ever expected! You made our day perfect, that’s all I can really say :)”

“OT weddings were amazing from start to finish. They got our ideas straight away and were on the same wavelength! On the day the food was fantastic and got rave reviews from our guests, and the hall was decorated to perfection. Jules managed to turn a dingy meeting room into a cosy and funky retro bar. The cocktails were immense too. Such effort was put into the detail. Thanks again x”

“We decided on a village hall in Hoby, Leicestershire, and the place was completely transformed, we couldn’t have imagined how amazing it look. The day was incredible, the food, drinks and service were all fantastic, everything ran perfectly on the day. But most of all, it was exactly what we wanted and we had the most amazing day of our lives. Thanks to Mel, Jules & the team for being awesome”!

“A big thank you to yourself and your team for Saturday. The hall looked really really beautiful, the food was delicious, as were the cocktails and the staff were all absolutely lovely! We had great feedback about everything from our guests and I think it’s safe to say a good time was had by all! We’re so happy it all ran smoothly, which of course was down to you and your amazing organisation!”

Rosie & Adam February 2012
“Mel was so helpful and made the planning and organising of the venue and food one of the least stressful parts of the wedding, nothing was too much trouble. It was great to be able to meet up as little or often as we liked to discuss what we wanted from the day… the staff were so enthusiastic and excited about the wedding it made us feel really special and the whole experience more personal.
Thank you all! x “
