March 21, 2019 | News

After reading about Princess Eugenie’s plastic free wedding and writing a piece on eco-glitter for Beautiful Bells recently, I asked my friend Claire Sumners, AKA Zero Waste Maman, if she’d like to contribute some of her top tips. Over to Claire… First tip, don’t be fooled by green-washing. You might think you’re buying an item that is ‘biodegrable’ or ‘eco’ or ‘green’ but you’re just buying into what producers want you to think. Wedding magic can be fun, flirty, glittery and stylish without harming the environment. Makeup Head to Urban Apothecary for THE BEST lip and cheek tint. It comes…

March 12, 2019 | News

Something to whet your appetite today! A new way to dine courtesy of Tie The Knot Catering.

Wedding Macarons

Supplier Spotlight – Queen Bees

March 7, 2019 | News

Today we hand over to Allison from Queen Bees to answer the question on everyone’s lips, are they macarons or macaroons?… I must have had this asked hundreds of times! Although officially they’re ‘French Macarons’ I don’t actually mind what you call them. Being a Geordie, now in the South of England, I quite like calling them macaroons as my pronunciation makes it more fun to say if I stress my northern accent. Regardless of their name, they are little delights of yumminess. I’m Allison and I own and run Queen Bees. I’ve learnt how to make macarons by practice,…

Supplier Spotlight – Teddy Pig Photography

February 26, 2019 | News

Recently I asked photographer Kerry Tongue, AKA Teddy Pig Photography, where her business name came from. She quipped that she couldn’t call it Tongue Photography because when you Googled it, it came up with lots of pornographic images! This sums Kerry up, she’s a good laugh and very down to earth. She’s photographed events for me, taken part in my personal branding workshop, advertised in the magazine, exhibited at my wedding fair and photographed my styled shoots. Considering I’ve known her for less than a year, I feel this is quite impressive! Kerry admits she’s ‘going for it’ now her…
