Welcome to the fabulous Honey Wedding Favours!
Honey wedding favours was set up in 2013 to produce small honey favours for friends who were getting married. Honey Wedding Favours thought this was such a great idea so decided to expand to enable other brides and grooms to experience their amazing product.
It is run by James Curtis who has been keeping bees in Essex for 6 years, selling the honey locally and nationally. All the honey he sells is raw and tastes fantastic. James and his wife made homemade blackberry jam for their own wedding in little glass jars.‘We take as much care over clients wedding favour as we did with our own.’ James tells us.
The honey favours themselves are designed to be highly customised and tailored to each individual wedding. You can choose from four different lid colours, use their standard labels or ask them to design one for you. The labels can be any colour to match your theme and contain the bride and groom’s name, the date of the wedding and a favourite phrase or sentence of your choice.
The booking process
We asked Honey Wedding favours, what a bride can expect when they contact them. This is what they said:
“The Bride and Groom will fill out a brief form telling us what they would like us to do for them. We can send Jar samples alongside different label options.’ James has a background in architecture and design so getting the label perfect is of great importance. An order is placed and delivered within ample time for the wedding to reduce any stress. James tells us ‘Our levels of quality control are second to none!’
“We hand fill each jar with honey. This ensures we are achieving top quality honey in each jar. We advise that our honey is best sent no later than two weeks before the big day. Our honey will never go off or spoil.
“It will last forever – just like true love!”
We love how passionate James is about his business. Honey Wedding Favours produce a fantastic product to ensure a special day for their customers alongside caring and nurturing for bees. James told us this is what motivates him with his work.
Top tips from a tip top supplier…
We asked James what his top tips are for brides and grooms:
‘Ask to see the product before you buy it. Taste, touch, smell and feel your way to getting the perfect person for the job’
‘Good communication is essential and make sure you know the ins and outs of what you are getting. Make sure there are no hidden surprises at a later date.’
Wise advice. We completely agree!
James went on to say ‘Weddings are often expensive. You can do lots of fantastic things for your own wedding yourself with a bit of time and effort.’
“Recommendations are key. Research really does pay off.”
We asked James what he thought his greatest achievement was. He replied:
“We sent 900 jars to Hong Kong for a large wedding. We produced the order ahead of schedule and delivered it personally to the client to ensure it was of top quality when it arrived.’
What a fabulous achievement!
