Wedding Hay Bales

Supplier Spotlight – Bales 4 Events

June 16, 2018 | News

Picture the scene; it’s the morning of your outdoor, festival-style wedding. There’s not a cloud in the sky. It’s warm but not too hot and everything is ready. Within the tipi by the lake all the tables are ready, Champagne is chilling and canapes are being prepared. The rowing boat is decorated with bunting and is strewn with cushions, ready for photos of the newly-weds. The ceremony area boasts an arch decorated with stunning fresh flowers, the aisle is a haphazard runner of mismatched Persian rugs. Hay bales form rows of seats for your guests; they’re the perfect height and…

Wedding Cake

Cake Calender

June 13, 2018 | News

I like to revisit the archives occasionally and bring you useful content we’ve featured in previous magazines. I loved this feature from issue two; cake flavours by month depending on what’s in season. Trends come and go but what’s in season doesn’t change! Tess MacMahon’s business (Eastbourne-based Chatter Cakes) is no longer operating, she went onto become a chef. We can see why! Over to Tess: One of the first things couples ask me when I meet them is ‘do we have to have fruit cake?’ and I always have to restrain a giggle. I imagine some evil cake monster…

Wedding Hair Make Up

Classic, Timeless Beauty…

June 11, 2018 | News

It can be exhausting trying to keep up with trends in the wedding industry… and I think weddings that are too ‘trendy’ can end up looking dated quite quickly. I started out in the industry ten years ago when the vintage/country garden vibe was all the rage; cake stands and bunting galore. Granted a lot of these elements (i.e. vintage china and hay bales) are still used in weddings today, but (although the vintage craze stuck around a fair while) times have changed. My favourite weddings have elements of things that are ‘en trend’ mixed with personal touches (regardless of…

Wedding Photo Shoot

Elegant & Sumptuous Bridal Shoot

June 8, 2018 | News

Today we’re pleased to feature a sultry and sumptuous styled shoot. Photographer Katie Rogers explains the theme for the shoot and how they set the mood: “I wanted to create a sumptuous mood, with soft winter light and a dash of deep velvet tones and delicate details. The inspiration came from my favourite time in a wedding day; bridal preparation and portraits. Those last few hours before getting married should be cherished and delighted in, a time to feel content surrounded by carefully chosen and personal details to mark the occasion. Essentially, I want to inspire brides to spoil themselves and feel their best ahead of their vows, and that…

Quirky Vegas Elopement

June 6, 2018 | News

Natasha Buckney is a photographer who is relatively new to the wedding scene. She came on my radar last year when she started advertising in the magazine. She also exhibited at my last wedding fair and photographed my Christmas party. She immediately struck me as exactly the right sort of supplier for Margot’s Wedding. Her photography and branding has a real humble, heartfelt vibe. Her tagline within our directory says it all to be honest: Relaxed and heartfelt wedding photography for the quiet ones, the quirky ones and the couples who are very much in love. Well Natasha herself is very much…

Wedding Food

Foodie Ideas & Top Tips

May 25, 2018 | News

Caiger & Co. Guest Post WE LOVE WEDDINGS! Of course we do, that’s why we’re here. And if you’re anything like us here in the Caiger & Co. kitchen, the thought of wedding planning means instantly thinking about the ‘do’, the ‘party’ or the ‘shindig’, and for us that means, food & drinks! We’ve got to be honest, food is a bit of an emotive subject and we find that couples often worry about the wrong things when it comes to wedding food. This is usually because they feel that they have to please a huge number of people with…
