Wedding preparations:

Last week we talked about lockdown easing, and weddings for up to 15 people being given the go ahead. For those of you who have already booked your nuptials, or if you’re about to set a date, have you considered keeping it local when it comes to your wedding preparations?

In and around Honley, there are shops and businesses who can assist with or take care of many of your wedding preparations. Here are just a few ideas of ways you can keep it local without compromising on quality.


It seems inadequate to call the cakes from White Rose Cake Design ‘a wedding cake’. Work of art would be more fitting for these truly amazing creations that will be a centrepiece and talking point at your wedding. Even better, they taste as good as they look!


You want a photographer who can capture what your wedding means to you then John Steel is your man. He’s taken many of the ‘people’ shots on this website and John’s wedding photography is full of character and personality.


Covid-19 have put a stop to many of our travel and holiday plans. To make sure your honeymoon is everything you want it to be, have a chat with Maria, The Personal Travel Agent. She can help and advise on locations and everything you need to know about booking a holiday during Covid times. See Maria’s Facebook page for offers and inspiration.

Gifts and rings

Sometimes you just want to buy the bride and groom something that little bit different that you can’t find in every department store on every high street. If that’s the case, then Dixon & Franks is definitely a place to visit. They have 4 floors with everything for the home, from soft furnishings and homeware to gifts.

Remember to pop into Zebra too. Just along the high street, Zebra has some memorable gifts that make perfect presents for your bridal party. Their resident goldsmith can also help you design and create your own individual rings too.


Flowers are central to a wedding. From the bouquet to the church flowers and table centre pieces, floral displays can transform any venue. If you want your flowers to reflect you and your day then have a chat with Jane at Woo B Woo. Putting her background as a fashion designer to great use, you can be confident that your wedding flowers will add a little magic to your day.

Finishing touches

There are no shortages of places in Honley to enjoy a pampering session in the run up to your big day, or for your personal wedding preparations on the day. From relaxing spa sessions to bridal party hair, make-up, nails, spray tan…. Let’s face it, whatever hair and beauty treatment you desire – bride or groom – you can probably find it in Honley.
