What is unique about you and your chocolate?
At Nirvana Chocolat by Melinda Leigh I pride myself on using only the finest high quality and great tasting sustainably sourced ingredients. I only use the finest Belgian chocolate from Barry Callebaut which contains the naturally occurring fat 'cocoa butter'.
I do not use palm oil or vegetable oil in my chocolates so you will always get a truly rich, smooth silky chocolate taste.
I offer a completely bespoke wedding favour and Belgian chocolate gift service so you have a unique chocolate gift for you and your guests.
Is your packaging recyclable?
Most of my packaging is recyclable or can be re-used by you. However some of the cellophane bags I use are not recyclable by all councils and I am currently phasing these out and they will be replaced with biodegradable versions so I aim to be as 'plastic free' as soon possible.
Do you offer dairy free / sugar free / organic chocolate?
I currently don't offer all of these options mainly due to order volumes but stay tuned and subscribe to our mailing list for the latest new products being released, free giveaways and discount codes / offers.
I do have a Low Sugar range available in my collections.
How long does it take to make my chocolate?
All my chocolates are handmade to order so they are freshly prepared for you. Please allow up to 5 working days for your chocolates to be made before dispatch.
Do you have a shop?
I am an online store only at present. This does help keep costs down which I can in turn pass on to you by way of great offers.
I do have permanent event marketing space at Martels Wedding Village in Barnston near Great Dunmow.
Why are there no products in the Bespoke Wedding Collection?
I offer a bespoke service so you can request any product, filling and colour for your wedding favours and chocolate gifts. I also try to match your wedding theme where possible so this means you have a truly unique chocolate experience for you and your guests.
I can work with our existing product range or source a new option for you.
How can I order my Wedding Favours online if I need more than you currently have in stock?
All my Belgian chocolates gifts and wedding favours are handmade to order for you so I do not actually hold large volumes of stock. The items listed on the website are a place holder to show my base product range.
Contact me directly and I can either adjust my online stock levels so you can place an order online or we can discuss options and I can send you an invoice with a payment plan.
Do you offer payment plans for Wedding Favour orders?
Yes, I require a £40 non refundable deposit to secure your booking and my availability with full payment being made at least four weeks prior to delivery.
The deposit is non refundable as my time is locked in for you and I will start work on your designs and order stock as soon as I receive your booking.
When should I order my Wedding Favours?
I advice all my clients to start the conversation with your chosen provider as soon as you have booked your venue and date as you will have a good idea of any colours or themes you wish to use at this point in your planning.
I would use an average of at least 3 months before the wedding so choices can be made and stock ordered ahead of time to avoid any disappointment. Ultimately the earlier you order, the better as one less thing on your list to worry about.
