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…

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. Photos (above left and centre) Nicola Kirk. Below is an example of…
