Supplier Spotlight – Great Betley Farmhouse

Kim Stewart from Sussex wedding venue, Great Betley Farmhouse, has been quite a journey over the last couple of years. We caught up with her to find out more, and to see what 2020 and beyond has in store. Q. Hi Kim! Can you tell us about Great Betley Farmhouse, how long you’ve been there etc… A. I have been living at the family-owned Great Betley Farmhouse since November 2007 but have known the farm since the early 1990’s when my husband and I farmed it. The farmhouse itself is a beautiful Tudor house and is set in 200 acres…

Supplier Spotlight – The Safari Pizza Company

It’s hard to believe The Safari Pizza Company only launched this year. I’ve been following their journey on social media and they’ve been super busy (they even managed to casually squeeze in their own wedding!) At the moment you’ll find the African-themed pizza Land Rover popping up at local markets selling their special Christmas pizza; brie, cranberry sauce, caramelised onion and pigs in blankets. YUUUUM (don’t attempt to read this post if you haven’t had lunch yet). We caught up with Sussex- based founders Alex and Alica to find out about their food as well as the inspiration behind their…

Featured Caterer – Tin Roof Kitchen

Here at Margot’s Wedding we love street food caterer Tin Roof Kitchen. Their mobile setup looks super-cool, we especially love the industrial-style lighting, hessian sacks and flowers in colourful tin cans. They’re the perfect addition to an outdoor festival-style wedding. We caught up with owner Barny to find out a little more about his fantastico business… Q. Hi Barny! We love Tin Roof Kitchen. Can you tell us about your experience and how the business came about? A.

Electric Romance Shoot

Who’s got that back-to-school feeling? Parents all over the land shoot their hands up! My son doesn’t start school until next year so he’s been in nursery as usual all over the holidays. This time next year we’ll be knee deep in uniform, pencil cases and proud front door photos… what the hell am I going to do with him in the holidays?! The end of the summer has a unique feeling I think, and boy what a summer it’s been! June wasn’t crazy for me but come July I had my Hampshire wedding fair with Kissing Gate Events so…

Sophie & Nick’s Midsummer Feastival

What a beauty we have for you today! Sophie and Nick perfectly mixed rustic farm vibes with lavish, indulgent treats for their guests. Over to the happy couple to tell you more… Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. When it came to the style of our wedding, we were led first of all by the date. As it was the day after the longest day, we envisaged a midsummer vibe; festival, feasting, singing and dancing. The idea then developed to include meadow flowers, prairie ribbons, floral patterns and celestial touches. Sophie grew up on a farm,…

My Best Friend’s Wedding

On Sunday I returned from the most amazing wedding in France. To say it was the best day of my life wouldn’t be fair on my son but it was pretty damn close! It was Lou and Ryan’s wedding. Lou and I have been friends for twenty years, we met when we moved in together on the first day of uni in 1999. Despite her moving out to the Alps soon after we graduated we’ve remained the best of friends and have had some amazing experiences together. Lou and her brother ran a bar in Val D’Isere for many years…

Our Outdoor Wedding Fair & Live Styled Shoot

Hola! Our outdoor wedding fair with Kissing Gate Events is done and dusted… and it didn’t rain, hurrah! I’ve spent the last two days in paddling pools with my son trying not to melt. He’s gone back to nursery today so I can finally catch up with myself and conduct a full event de-brief. The fair (Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza) was a collaborative project between Margot’s Wedding and Kissing Gate Events. An opportunity to showcase everything Kissing Gate has to offer; beautiful land venues, traditional pole marquee, bell tents, delicious food, horse box bar and horse box toilets. My job was…
