Romantic Boho Bridal Shoot

July 16, 2018 | News

This enchanting styled shoot coordinated by The Vintage Parade boasts boho vibes and a colourful banquet fit for a king. “Our shoot began as an extension to exhibiting at my spring fair at Slindon College” explains Alex Cvijovic (The Vintage Parade’s head honcho). “Attending our events is not just about promoting your business in one day, it’s about extending that opportunity. I provide the mood and colour board and let the suppliers inject their own creativity. Everyone is focused on their own specialism but support one another”. Theme ~ We opted for eccentric bohemian influences with more conventional, romantic touches. Colour…

Meet the Organiser – The Wonderous Wedding fair

July 11, 2018 | News

I met Alex Cvijovic from The Vintage Parade at her wedding fair in Winchester in 2013 (The Nostalgic Wedding Fair)… and so began a beautiful friendship and working relationship! My magazine (then Doily Days) was focusing on vintage weddings so it was clear Alex and I shared a passion. Neither of us are into a specific era but we both love iconic design and the fun ‘kitschness’ of vintage and nostalgia. We enjoy rocking dresses (from all eras) for parties and we love a good excuse for some pink lipstick and a headscarf. Photos (featured and above middle) by Anna…

Ethical Vegan Bridal Shoot ~ Part 2

July 4, 2018 | News

On Monday we featured a stunning ethical vegan wedding shoot by Nicki Feltham. You can view the post here. Today we’re chuffed to show you the second ‘look’ from the same shoot. Very different to the floral overload… we absolutely love the sparkle, the colour and the quirky edgy vibe. Well done team!

Ethical Vegan Bridal Shoot – PART 1

July 2, 2018 | News

Photographer Nicki Feltham went vegan last year for health reasons and she hasn’t looked back. “There’s so little (if any) health benefits to eating meat or consuming milk and dairy” explains Nicki, “and I choose to no longer eat something that another living being has had to suffer to bring to my table… don’t get me wrong, I’m no lettuce eating angel. Did you know Oreos are accidentally vegan?!!”. Nicki started thinking about the cosmetics she uses too and will now only buy products that are not tested on animals. She love the “B” range in Superdrug and she tells…

  Say I do to writing your own vows!     When you sit down to compose the promises and words which will share your commitment with your loved one, it can be quiet daunting, but don’t panic… it doesn’t have to be as scary as you think! First things first… think about your journey. Consider your history and memories. You have so many stories to tell why not add them in when you have the one chance to share this in front of your friends and family.

Big Day Takeaway?

June 27, 2018 | News

Feeding your wedding guests is a costly and complex business. Whole catering teams need to travel to you, equipment needs to be hired, kitchens need to be erected in fields… it’s no mean feat! At Margot’s Wedding we’re all about thinking outside the box and defying convention, so when we heard Deliveroo were moving into the world of weddings, we were interested. We think, done properly, a take away en masse is a pretty cool idea for a relaxed and modern wedding! Deliveroo’s first bride, Martha Macgregor, said “No two couples are the same, so why should we settle for…

Intimate London Wedding

June 20, 2018 | News

Anne and Graziano from Islington had an intimate and laid back and spring wedding. Kerry from Teddy Pig Photography captured their elegant day beautifully: “We chose Frederick’s for our celebratory lunch initially because it was convenient to get to (we walked!). They have a beautiful private room upstairs overlooking Camden Passage and flooded with light during the day.” “Angel Flowers did the bridal bouquet and the table decorations. They know Frederick’s very well and were fantastic in providing advice. The only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted seasonal flowers and they nailed it! I loved my bouquet,…

Shot on Film 

June 18, 2018 | News

Softer. Timeless. One-off pieces of art.  Joanna Brown trained in photography when digital was not invented so it’s really at the heart of where she learnt her craft.  She’s been shooting weddings for seven years and has always taken film cameras along. She uses 2 x 35mm cameras with black and white and colour film in each, a couple of Polaroids and a Diana camera. “I tend to use the 35mm for documentary” Joanna explains “and then the others for the more static times of the day like portraiture and detail shots”.  At the moment Joanna is shooting film as a second shooter, working in addition to a digital shooter. “Images shot on film are completely different to digital…
