Putting elegance into weddings

IT'S not until you're planning a wedding that you realise how much detail goes into it. That's where Allison Visentin can help with her new business Elegant By Design - Weddings and Events.

The business is a styling and decoration service for weddings and other events which offers full set-up and pack down as well as a hire- only service for DIY events.

It's the first time Mrs Visentin has run this sort of business, and she's excited to see what it brings into the future.

"It's something more fun to do, it's something a bit out of the ordinary to do,” she said.

Mrs Visentin's products for hire include centrepieces, wishing wells, ceiling drapes, bridal backgrounds, lighting, chandeliers, tablecloths and flowers.

The business isn't limited to weddings.

"It can be anything, at the moment I'm planning for the Deb Ball in Warwick,” Mrs Visentin said.

"It can be from anything as little as a baby shower or a birthday party up to your bigger events.”

It was helping her son and his fiancé plan their wedding which inspired Mrs Visentin to start the business.

"It had me more inspired because I was in that wedding planning state,” she said.

Mrs Visentin hoped her business would help local people stay local when it came to event planning.

"I see a lot of people going out of town for this service,” she said.

"I'd like to think that it's working that we've got someone local who can supply this for them.”
