Truropeople Wedding Planners – Part 2

In Part 1 we discovered that Truro has just about everything you need to plan all ‘the big stuff’ for a wedding. With the rings, dresses and venues all covered, we come to the smaller items; hair, flowers, photographers and transport.
Fancy getting married in Truro?
Get the Hair Right
Everybody knows what it’s like to have a bad hair day, so on your wedding day it needs to be perfect, whether it’s delicate ringlets or an intricate beehive. The two most prestigious salons in Truro would be the Lounge andToni & Guy. Both cater to wedding requirements for brides, bridesmaids, even the best man if needs be. The former is owned by famous stylist, Marc Sampson, and has a funky interior, while a rather odd bonus here for any wedding parties; the chairs give you a massage when getting your hair washed! Alternatively, Vanilla Hair and Spa is one of the highest rated salons in our directory, and will probably be a little easier on the wallet. You can even use the savings on a special wedding spray tan (we’ve been assured that *** doesn’t ever streak! ).
Flowers are a girl’s best friend
You’ve already bought the diamond, so wedding flowers are the next best thing. Truro has about half a dozen florists in the main town alone, but our personal favourites are Celtic Flowers, who have a lovely little shop in Pannier Market, and Janes Flowers, who can offer a range of pre set arrangements, as well as bespoke designs.
A quick Google or Facebook search will spring up a dozen photographers in the Truro area. A lot of them will be relatively new start-ups still trying to build their business book, so you could get some great deals if you’re prepared to look. However, we would recommend Paul Richards of Pr4photos. Unobtrusive and professional, Paul will talk through with you exactly what you want from the day before taking a single picture.
So, you need wedding transport, eh? Walking to the ceremony doesn’t give the right impression and you’ll probably need a way home when the reception is done. For some timeless antique cars, In2Connections (who we mentioned as dress sellers in part 1) can also arrange vintage vehicles for your special day. For the evening event, there is a full list of Truro taxi and cab firms in our directory, but we can personally verify that A2B are reasonably priced for longer journeys after midnight. Failing that, if you’re having an unconventional reception, the super stretch party bus makes for an entertaining (and wonderfully garish) ride.
Have your say.
