The nights may be drawing in and I've just brought my jumpers out of storage for the cold months ahead, but now's the time to start planning a summer wedding. Fortunately, there are plenty of local businesses with the expertise and experience to help Finsbury Park people get through what can be a stressful time - and we've checked them out for you!
Love, marriage and profiteroles can all be yours.
If you're a bride-to-be, this is probably your number one concern. The right wedding dress can make you look like a million dollars on your dream day; the wrong dress will haunt your wedding photographs for years to come. Thankfully, Finsbury Park has the Fonthill Fashion Village, a top destination for dress hunters on all budgets, right on its doorstep.
For a wide range of beautiful classic and modern designs, try Bridal Originals at 89 - 93 Fonthill Road. I love this fishtail dress in ivory satin and this organza A-line number. Should you find your dress there, Bridal Originals also has an extensive stock of veils, tiaras and other accessories, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses.
Other local options include Grace Bridal Collections and Segula Weddings. Brides looking for an Asian twist could try Shadiye on Hornsey Road. Don't forget your bouquet and reception flowers from Issima Flowers or local favourite Sunflower Gallery.
If the venue search, the guest list, the flowers, invitations and catering are all getting on top of you, you might want to look at a full planning and management service like Qasar e Noor. Qasar e Noor ("sweetness and light", if my Persian doesn't desert me) provides a full consultation service and will find venues and suppliers, plan your wedding and manage your entire event on the day if you so wish. Find out more at their website. Stylish Events also offers wedding planning packages serving the N4 area.
You'll want to put your best face forward and plan hair and beauty treatments well before the big day. Have a look at our recent pamper feature for ideas on local beauty businesses, or if you're tied up at home organising the event, try mobile beautician Susan Armstrong. Down the road, the beautiful Angel Therapy Rooms offers both bridal pampering and packages for the bridal party.
Worried about the first dance, want a special piece of choreography or feel a dance class would make a fun alternative hen weekend activity? Look no further than Start the Dance, a wedding-dance specialist that will match your needs to a local dance teacher and provide lessons in the comfort of your own home. Jess Brichto and her team will ensure you need not fear an awkward shuffle on the dancefloor!
And finally, if you think love and marriage really do go together like a horse and carriage, why not finish the day with a ride through the park in a glass coach or open carriage from Carlton Carriages?
