Fantastic communication

Claire was excellent with her communication and her products were brilliant. We had the white carpet for our aisle and some crates for some LED foam lights. Would highly recommend this company as they were fantastic! Thank you.

Amazing supplier

It’s really hard to put into words how grateful I am to Claire and her team. They really work magic to bring an empty space to life for a wedding. I cried when I walked into our wedding breakfast! Claire is just fab to work with as well - she’ll be the first to tell you I’m a fan of a spreadsheet and she matched my energy and sent voice notes and photos to help us work out the perfect options for our dream wedding. I would wholeheartedly recommend Claire for any couple who are looking for someone to add some decor to their wedding space.

Really helped bring my vision to life!

Claire and her team have been fantastic and really helped make my wedding day perfect!
Originally I planned to DIY the majority of my wedding, and I did! But we knew there were some things I couldn't do alone, and so we first booked a few larger decorative bits through 1st Class. As time went by however, and the stress started getting to me, I found myself reaching out to them more and more for various things, from postboxes to blossom trees. And each time they were incredibly helpful and accomodating!
Finally we hired them to set everything up for us on the day, so it would be one less thing to worry about, and they did a wonderful job! It was amazing seeing everytime come together exactly as I'd imagined.
So thank you, for putting up with this fickle, stressed out bride and helping to make our day beautiful!

Perfect wedding!

We chose 1st Class Event Specialists for our wedding. Claire and her team did an amazing job - the wedding decorations looked absolutely perfect! Claire was super helpful the whole way through providing loads of options and ideas throughout the process. Having Claire dress the venue allowed me to relax on the day; knowing everything was in safe hands! We had so many compliments on the decorations and how stunning everything looked! There is a lot of hard work goes into dressing events and Claire and her team were incredible, if we ever have an event in the future I would not hesitate to contact Claire again for the decoration of the venue.

!st Class Events Specialists

Claire and her team were fantastic. The tables and chairs were simple and elegant, just as we requested. The sweet cart was a great success, for adults and children alike. Although I changed my mind a few times, nothing was too much trouble.

My partner and I just got married at the Cromwell in Stevenage and we used 1st Class Event Specialists to decorate the venue and we are so happy that we did.
The service provided was fantastic and the venue looked incredible. Claire always got back to me as soon as she was able to and understood exactly what the style I wanted was as well as being super flexible.
The moment we walked in and saw the venue, we could not wipe the smiles off our faces at how stunning it all looked. We would 100% recommend 1st Class Even Specialits to others and we shall be using them again in the future.
Once again, thank you to Claire and the team.
