Upgrade your canapé reception with a few inventive trays, for example this repurposed mirror. 

Catherine Gratwicke

When the Brides team invited Tony Marklew and Javier Salvador from By Appointment Only Design to recreate a decadent visual feast fit for a bride, they chose a sumptuous palette of gold, purple and pinks.

Mirrors lend themselves perfectly to a traditional venue or could be used in beautiful contrast to a contemporary setting. Either way, we think you'll agree, the impact is spectacular.
