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…

Hollie & Claire’s Outdoor Tipi Wedding

February 21, 2019 | News

Hollie and Claire thought outside the box when it came to their happy, summery outdoor wedding. Instead of a venue that has weddings every weekend they booked self catering accommodation for all their guests… which also happened to have a barn! It meant their could put their stamp on it, at their leisure and they had the whole place to themselves on the last night. Over to Hollie to tell us all about their planning (we LOVE the sound of the pistachio, berry and rhubarb pavlovas! Yum…) Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. The style for the wedding…

February 16, 2019 | News

Today we get to know wedding photographer Tom Langford AKA Weddings by Tom. We love the fact he watches Casualty religiously every week… and his unashamed love for Ru Paul’s Drag Race! 1) What makes you happy? ​Wow! That’s a deep question to begin with!

Wedding Signage

Give me a Sign!

February 11, 2019 | News

There’s a lot of stuff that needs signposting at weddings. Your guests need to literally be pointed in the direction of the bar, the toilets, the tables, the dancefloor. And the signs need to tell them what to do… Dance! Smile! Drink Tequila and Dance on the Tables! Well they don’t need to, but they could. We’ve complied some of our faves. First up is Amelia Walters Studio. Amelia is an illustrator from Brighton and she hand stains and hand-paints scaffold boards which have been planed and joined together.
