Wedding Ceremony Celebrant

Real Ceremony

September 24, 2018 | News

We often feature real weddings but this is the first time we’ve focused specifically on the ceremony! It’s great to look at it from a real couple’s point of view. Celebrant Charlotte Pennefather talks us through her experience of working with the couple; from initially meeting them until the moment they became man and wife. Hopefully it will give you some tips on how to inject personality and soul into your ceremony.

You know that feeling when you put a date in your diary and it feels like ages away and then suddenly… it’s next weekend! That’s right folks, Margot’s Wedding Fair at the Worthing Dome is NEXT SUNDAY and I can think of little else. This is my first solo fair (having previously organised The Wonderous Wedding Fair in Portsmouth with The Vintage Parade) but I have a long-standing relationship with The Dome. It’s SUCH an amazing, iconic venue right on the beach, opposite the pier, smack bang in town. It’s a separate business but the stunning Edwardian cinema downstairs is…

Kat & Gareth’s Wedding at Heaven Farm

September 13, 2018 | News

Kat & Gareth’s big day at Heaven Farm was all about relaxed vibes, country and wildlife. Over to Kat to tell us all about it… What was most important to you when it came to tying the knot/celebrating your marriage? That we were happy, smiling and would celebrate having each other always… and that we didn’t let our nerves run away with us. How did you chose your venue and suppliers? The venue took a while but I knew it was the one when I saw the view. I knew I wanted to get married outside, so when I realised…

Styled Wedding Bridal Shoot

Arty & Elegant Styled Shoot

September 8, 2018 | News

Way back in May myself and a group of talented wedding suppliers descended upon the newly opened Balcombe Place and put together a very special styled bridal shoot. Jessica Milberg and I came up with the theme (Jessica was our photographer). We wanted an intellectual, arty, bohemian vibe and our mood board had nods to William Morris and the Charleston set. We were conscious the overall look needed to indicate true bohemian style as opposed to trendy boho style. Everyone worked so hard and I’m thrilled we achieved the elegant, aloof look we were going for… it’s very ‘Margot’! Take…

My Favourite Kinds of Wedding Photography

September 1, 2018 | News

There are SO many wedding photographers out there. If you’re currently looking for a photographer your head might be in a spin! Good wedding photographers will have their own unique and definitive style so it’s really all about finding one whose style matches your personalities and your event. I believe it’s a combination of three things ~ their style, their technical ability and their creative eye… so lets break these down: Style – below are three categories I’ve chosen (there are others such as fine art/beauty/luxury, alternative/way out/offbeat but these are my favoured styles) and examples of photography and photographers:…
