Updates from Margot’s HQ

Hi guys! Sorry for radio silence on the blog this week. I had a lovely real wedding lined up for Tuesday but I’ve been having some problems uploading the images. It’s all being sorted now, thank goodness for my brilliant developers. I thought I’d write a general post about what’s what here at Margot’s HQ i.e. what’s been happening, what’s coming next and what’s in store as we look forward to 2020. This week we’re finalising issue 16 and it’s due out on Monday. We’ve been collating adverts and editorial over the last few months and Jo (marvellous Jo from…

Q&A with Phoebe Mulrooney of PHOHM

PHOHM is about creating moments of joy in real spaces. Phoebe Mulrooney creates unique and vibrant installations using artificial flowers and foliage… Q. In what way are your installations used at weddings? A. All the works are bespoke. I design and create installations to reflect each couple’s personal taste. My arrangements are versatile; the arches are a perfect setting to get married under, they are also used as a unique photo area or can be used as an entrance or walkway. My flower and foliage walls are ideal backdrops for photos at the reception. I can also create any kind…

Be True to You…

October 24, 2019 | News

A little advice from Ami of Lo & Behold Bespoke on planning a day that is utterly you… Weddings – “A ceremony where by two people are united in marriage”. We’ve all been to weddings and we all know what they ‘should’ be… Traditions and things you’ve got to do; rules, regulations, things you’ve got to wear and customs you need to adhere to? Simple right? It’s almost like you’ve got a checklist to work through… Do all these things in this order and ‘wham bam’ you’ve got yourself a perfect wedding… Well what if I told you no? Actually…

Lisa Pascoe – On Love

Lisa Pascoe is a qualified NLP Master Practitioner with over five years’ experience, and is the host of Bravehearts Rising, a podcast for deep feelers, dreamers and empaths. As Lisa prepares to marry Bekky (very soon!) we asked her to contribute a piece on LOVE. Over to Lisa… While I loved the Little Mermaid as a child, I never grew up wanting the fairy tale romance. I didn’t dream of a big wedding and never wanted to be rescued. What I did crave, however, was marriage, Marks and Spencers and a mortgage. It sounds funny now but as an only…

Supplier Spotlight – Confetti Coast Photography

One of my favourite things about my job is getting to know passionate small business owners and finding out their story. i.e. what led them to the wedding industry… It’s not always straight forward! For Kaz from Confetti Coast Photography, her journey into the wedding industry came through being made redundant from her IT job as Quality Manager, where there was no creative outlet. She and her husband Vince bought a clapped out VW splitscreen campervan (Sleepy Jean) from Oregon, which they had restored, and they started Vinnie’s Vintage Vehicles in 2013. “VWs hold my heart and fulfil my passion…

Boat Shed Bride-to-Be!

Today we hear from popular singer Miss Amy Baker as she and fiance Sam prepare to tie the knot at The Boat Shed… over to Amy: Sam surprised me with a trip to London. I had no idea where we were going but when he took a rucksack out for the day (he hates carrying anything) and then suggested a visit to a park (rather than a pub) I knew something was up! We took a leisurely walk around Regents Park and then hired a pedalo. Sam climbed onto the back of the boat and wobbled down onto one knee….
