Haley Jane Events does Essex Fashion Week 2012…

It may have been over a week ago now but the excitement still remains.  Essex Fashion Week has become an annual highlight for one of our Suppliers Haley Jane Events and they are here with a guest blog today to share their account of this VIP event. Looking at the fun they had all we can say is that we are WELL JEL!…

“Ok, so it’s the morning of Essex Fashion Week 8/4/2012. Yes you guessed it, it’s Easter sunday, So while everyone’s indulging in Easter eggs were making the 2.5 hour trip to CEME Venue where Essex Fashion Week is taking place.

We arrive at CEME In Essex to be greeted by security and the longest red carpet I have ever seen and the huge white board with all well known sponsors including: Amy Childs, HeartFM, Marriot, RM Magazine, boohoo, Cinderella Hair, Wags World, Kosho, Lifestyle 24/7,  Plus many more.

We entered the venue and it looked amazing with a huge white glowing catwalk for all the stunning models to take to and strut their thing!
As everyone was preparing for the opening of Essex Fashion Week. We met with Adam & Simon Ryan and the beautiful Danielle Bigaignon from WE BOP who showed us different areas of where we could set up our Candy Buffet & Candy Tree & colour coordinated pom pom trees, so we opted to set up in the VIP drinks & after party area.

The colour theme was black & silver so we have brought the colour & theme to our candy buffet table. Our flower table centre piece was made by the lovely Kris at Fusion Flowers – Where floral designs come to life.

The atmosphere was amazing & exciting all rolled into one and we were so honoured to be asked to join the event for the 2nd year!

As it was Essex Fashion Week we wanted to incorporate our 5ft candy trees into the fashion theme.

The lovely girls from Love Cupcakes also provided their famous cookies which looked lovely and went down a storm.

Lily Sunshine also provided mini cupcakes, which were yummy!.
Jeff Brazier – The Host of Catwalk and an amazing job he did too
Nanny Pat from ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ Said her grandchildren would love our Candy Buffet …. ha-ha

Rylan from ‘Signed by Katie Price’ He was amazed by our 5ft Fashion Candy Tree & couldn’t believe how many sweets there were in our Candy Buffet

We were delighted when Harry Derbridge from ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ posed for press pictures with our Candy Buffet.

Kirk Norcross from ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ & Big Brother & Sugar Hut. Looking REEM!  He couldn’t believe how heavy our Candy Tree was!

David Van Day & Sue Moxley enjoyed our candy treats for their lunch at Essex Fashion Week.

Such a funny man & Sue Moxley was so lovely after she brought the David over to our Candy Buffet! …. Thank you!

ROMEO from So Solid Crew & Big Brother – Nicest person I have ever met he’s so lovely!

Many celebrities attended the Essex Fashion Week including 2 Shoes, ‘Only Way Is Essex’ Perri Sinclair, Jessica Wright, Billi Muklow, Cara Kilbey, and Lauren Goodger.
Joey Bevan Stylist for Americas & UK Next Top Model.

I also managed to catch up with desperate scouse wives at the After Party

I also supplied our popular pom-pom trees on the tables in the VIP tables ready for the after party also our bespoke 6ft pom-pom trees for each side of the catwalk they are all colour coordinated in black & silver and looked amazing.

So as Essex Fashion Week after party was in full swing and everyone was enjoying themselves with the sounds from Heartless Crew.

Also KIG (Heads, Shoulder, Knees & Toes) was so lovely to watch them perform live and catch up with them.

We managed to catch up with a couple of celebrities who were impressed with our work and loved what we did.  It was also lovely & refreshing to be recognized from celebrities who remembered us from the previous Essex Fashion Week and knew all about us at Haley Jane Events.

Christmas Treats for 7th December – Haley Jane Events

WOW! This is my first ever blog!  I’m honoured to doing it for the lovely Sue Page at Ice The Cake.  I’m not too sure on where to start so here goes….

In 2004 when I got married to my husband, during our planning process of our wedding I was fed up with people telling me how to have my wedding day and all I ever heard was ‘’This is how it’s usually done’’! I didn’t want my wedding like everyone else’s each wedding is different and should be as individual as you are, no two weddings should be the same.

I have always wanted to become a wedding planner & events co-ordinator from a young age. I have also helped out with family & friends weddings to gain hands on experience. I love to do anything from the smaller intimate wedding to the grand weddings & events. I like to inspire brides & lt’s important to bring their personalities & add their special touch to their special day.

In January 2011 I contacted the Prince’s Trust to if they could assist me in to setting up my own Business and I was then awarded a start up loan.  The Prince’s Trust is not just financial support.  They actually believed in me, they gave me the confidence & help to achieve my dreams I then went on to build my own Business & Haley Jane Events was born 5th July 2011.

We can be involved with your wedding or event as little or as much as you wish from On the Day Co-ordination, Venue Sourcing & right down to the final design.  I’m based in the West Midlands, Birmingham Solihull area but I do cover the whole of the UK & Beyond if required.


We also supply our very own Candy Buffet which we have specially designed four packages for you to choose from all of our packages can be tailor made to suit your chosen requirements.

We offer many different accessories for you to choose from at NO EXTRA COST, The hardest thing you will have to do is choose your sweets.

Our Candy Buffet comes complete with all of the following:

  • Stunning Glassware
  • Scoops & Tongs

  • Personalised message from the Bride & Groom or Event Host.



It’s perfect for all those mini guests at your wedding or event and big kids love it too!

We can also supply the perfect gifts for you with our amazing Candy Tree they are also available as floor standing over 5ft high! The Candy Trees are perfect for Weddings, Corporate Events also including Birthdays, Engagements, and Baby Showers or even just to say thank you to someone special.

All our Candy Trees are custom made & made to order just how you like them, you can choose all your own colours or even add a theme! & we can take care of the rest for you!

All our Candy Trees also make great gifts for Christmas & can also be made up for you in Christmas colours & themes. They are also great for a table centre piece if your entertaining family & friends over the Christmas period. It’s both different & unexpected. We can make them up as a single ball or double the fun with our 2 teir candy tree choose all of your favourite sweets! All our products come complete with cellophane wrapped & include a bow of your chosen colour making it the perfect Christmas gift.

I have so many great achievements but my most recent achievement would be being contacted by Giuliano from BRMB Radio Station asking me to do my first ever radio talk as they were holding an event ‘Brides on Broad Street’ this also helped me to ‘Plug’ my Business on Air, What a fantastic opportunity for me as a new Start up Business.

My second Greatest Achievement would have to be being contacted by Danielle from WeBop; she asked me If I wanted to supply our Candy Buffet & Balloons for Essex Fashion Week at Woolston Manor on 29th October 2011, which was to be displayed in the VIP Area! Our Candy Buffet was enjoyed by all from Fashion Designer & Celebrities which included Carol Mcgriffin, X-Factor’s John Wilding, 2 Shoes, Big Brothers Charlie Drummond & Rebeckah Vaughan also the TOWIE cast of The Only Way Is Essex, Towie twins Adam & Simon Ryan, Lauren Goodger, Chloe Sims, Gemma Collins & Ellie Redman plus many more.

I also supplied one of our NEW Candy Trees which is floor standing and reaches over 5ft high and was full of light fluffy marshmallows and was enjoyed by all the celebrities & was even Tweeted about the next day by a Fashion Designer & Ellie Redman (From TOWIE).

My achievements are just overwhelming & I feel quite humble by it all, I have had so many positive comments & lovely feed back from the work we produce it’s really nice to know I have support from all my wonderful suppliers & followers.

I believe that our candy trees are universal & you should be able to give someone special, something different! I have a wide variety of Christmas candy trees, Even if you have your own ideas & inspirations on how you would like your candy tree to be then I’m more than happy to work with you & create something special for you! – We believe in going the extra mile!

I have a wonderful family who have supported me & I’m very lucky & grateful to each and every one of you & to my followers on Facebook & Twitter for their continued help & support. Thank you!

Me & my family love Christmas, Ti’s the season to be jolly it’s time for celebrating & for everyone to enjoy the festive season, I love listening to my children early hours Christmas morning whispering between themselves as my one daughter say’s to the other ‘wake up, wake up I think Santa’s been’ you can hear the excitement in their voices such a magical and unforgotten time. We hear their beds creek and just think Noooo It’s too early! But to see their faces Christmas morning is just magical & priceless.

Hope each & everyone one you have a wonderful Christmas time don’t forget to hang out your stocking!
