Just In Case You Missed It – Here’s Charlotte Balbier!

Charlotte Balbier:

Charlotte Balbier is a well known Cheshire based fashion designer, with a fantastic reputation for style and elegance. She has been working in the wedding industry for over a decade, and she is highly knowledgeable within the field.

Charlotte’s family history within the Wedding business expresses her natural affinity with the magic involved with creating that special day.

It was only a matter of time before Charlotte herself got married. So, whilst the rest of us paused, waiting with delight to see what she would have in place for her and her husbands special day we were all amazed with the end result!

As expected, her Wedding day was one of true beauty. Due to her involvement within the Wedding industry, this meant that her day was highly covered across online discussion and print publications across the UK and worldwide.


Wedding blogs all over the globe have covered the highly anticipated event and it featured in several Wedding and fashion design blogs such as one of the most popular in the world, Style Me Pretty.

A Hint of Pink!

Spring is in the air and with it a whole host of fresh new season colours.
Soft pinks make the ideal shade for spring and summer.

We absolutely loved these subtle pink touches at a fabulous marquee wedding last summer.

Pink works particularly well with shades of green, and gold metallics.

Bridal gown queen Charlotte Balbier selected a pink and gold colour scheme for
her wedding decor – to a breathtaking effect!

Our team were very proud to be a part of this event, and we were all blown away
by the beautiful decoration and styling.

A Feast Fit for a Balbier Bride!

This week, we had some exciting guests visiting our tasting room here at Vanilla in Allseasons HQ!

This one looks set to be a seriously fabulous affair! So, what do you serve to the queens of the wedding industry? No pressure!
We were given a free reign to show them what we could do, it was rather like the Master Chef kitchens here at HQ, with our chefs battling out to impress our guests.

We served up a selection of delicious soups…
Jerusalem Artichoke wit truffle oil
Roast root vegetable with carrot crisps
Pumpkin and Parmesan
Pea and Scallop soup

We also served fillet of beef cooked two ways…
Fillet of Cheshire Beef wrapped in Air dried Ham, and braised short rib with Potato fondant sticks, Celeriac and Carrot puree, Merlot jus
Duo of beef, Fillet of Cheshire beef with a shin and shallot pie, baby vegetables squash puree and Merlot jus


We topped it off with a box of sweet and delicate macarons from Mum’s Macarons. We hear on the grapevine that caramel chocolate was Charlotte’s favourite.

So, what will they choose for the big day? You’ll have to wait and see!
