Averys - For all you Wedding Wine needs

I've wanted to blog about Averys for some time now for no other fact than when we were organising our wedding they were beyond superb!
Apart from the gorgeous and unique environment;

wine tasting table

And the obvious experience and expertise;

They were open and made us feel totally relaxed when we said we had X amount to spend and we needed X amount of bottles (and trust me it wasn't much!)
They got out a selection and let us taste and decide for ourselves - without any of the hideous wine snobbery - which wines would be best for our day and our guest.

We were so delighted by the whole experience that we also treated ourselves to a little something special;

We have been to Averys on and off since, whenever we have wanted to buy a friend something that you can't get in the supermarket or when we have wanted to treat ourselves to the experience of feeling special without breaking the bank - their good basic wine is the same cost as supermarkets but the quality is so much better.
Go and see for yourselves, it's totally worth the trip: Averys Wine Cellars, 9 Colver Street, Bristol, BS1 5LD

Vintage Tea Party Co.

For those of you that have never been to Carmarthen in Wales it could be described as "up and coming" in terms of fashion so I was thoroughly excited to see a Vintage Crockery shop pop up on Mansel Street just off the main high street.

The Vintage Tea Party Co. hire Vintage Crockery for weddings and special occasions and are doing so well that they have opened a little boutique selling pretty home wares to accompany their vintage china

If you're in the neighbourhood you could drop in or alternatively look them up at their tranquil website
