    Leave a Comment

    Some exciting news, we have been working closely with MyShaadi, a brand new UK wedding directory, for a few months now, providing valueable feedback and beta testing their wedding platform. The app and website was finally launched in June, and already it has been very popular with wedding planners and suppliers alike.

    If you’ve not heard of them before, MyShaadi is a new Asian Wedding Directory based in the UK, that aims to bridge the gap between those planning a wedding and wedding suppliers. It provides a free to use app which is available on Android and iOS, where users can gain access to hundreds of wedding suppliers accross the UK.

    The MyShaadi app also provides some great features, including the ability to send enquiries to multiple suppliers, and allowing them to pitch for your event. This is a great way to help you save time on your planning, and also prevents you from needing to call around and chase suppliers.

  2. New Addition to Sweet Occasions Co – Candy Cart Hire

    Leave a Comment

    The team at Sweet Occasions Co are excited to announce the addition of a brand new Candy Cart to add to our growing list of confectionery hire services.

    Our candy cart is a traditional victorian style cart, with large spindle wheels on one side, and sturdy pillars on the other. With a solid MDF roof (as apposed to a fabric roof) the cart looks authentic and a lot more extravagant.

    Candy Carts can be used as part of a variety of displays including sweet buffets, cake stands, food stalls and fruit displays.


    We will now be offering a Candy Cart hire service that can be used with sweet displays, cake stands, food stalls or fruit displays.

    We have a wide range of candy cart hire packages for you to choose from, catering for small family celebrations to large corporate events. Alternatively, if you are looking for something a little different, or that extra bit special, we can create a bespoke hire package that is tailored to your exact requirements.

    Our packages include:

    • Cart hire only – This is just the hire of the cart. We will provide delivery of the candy cart, and full set up in the location of your choice. At the end of your event, we will come and pack it up and take it away.
    • Cart & Jars – Similar to the package above, however we will also provide the jars, bowls, scoops, tongs and paper bags for your event.
    • Cart & Sweets – In this package you will receive the candy cart, jars, bowls, scoops, tongs, paper bags and the your selection of sweets. We will provide the right amount needed for the amount of guests you are having.
    • Cart, Sweets & Attendant – Similar to the package above, but with the addition of a candy cart attendant. The attendant will stay with the candy cart throughout the booking, and assist your guests and re-stock sweets if needed.

    For more information on our packages see our Candy Cart Hire page or if you would like to submit an enquiry, see our enquiry page.

    Hello World!

    Welcome to our newly launched website. We are very excited to have finally launched our new website after being under development for almost six months.

    You will notice things are looking rather trendy on our new site, with dedicated pages for each of our services and a simple to use enquiry form to let us know exactly what you need. A few of our aims with the new website were to make it easier to navigate for our customers, and easier for us to manage/update the website. Most of all, we wanted to help our customers get to know us and our services better.

    Each of the services that we provide now have a one-shop stop page, where you can find out all the details of the service, what packages are available and most importantly see pictures from real event in all their glory. We also have a dedicated page showcasing our customer testimonials, as we are more than happy to share our raving reviews!

    We would like to thanks ForwardSlash Designs – a Birmingham based web design studio – who have designed our site. They took our original ideas and combined them with their expert knowledge and expertise to create a website that we are extremely proud of.

    We hope you enjoy our new website! If there are any pages or content you feel we should include on our site, let us know in the comments below…
