Getting to know… Holly Bobbins Photography

I’ve simply loved reading the answers photographer Holly Bobbins sent back to my questions… mainly because I think we’re pretty much the same person (and the quote at the end made me cry)! Read on to find out what a happy, sentimental and creative soul she is. Q. What makes you happy? A. Lots of things makes me happy … standard things, my kids, my husband but I can find joy all over the place. My husband said the happiest he’s ever seen me was watching a hermit crab on our honeymoon in Thailand. I spent about an hour watching…

Weddings that Stand the Test of Time

July 30, 2019 | Love, Marriage, News, Photography, real wedding

I’ve wanted to write this post for a while because it’s something I feel quite passionately about. I’ve run this wedding business for ten years and even before that I was involved with weddings in some form or another. I worked in the function room at Hampton Court Palace when I was 18 and then, in later life, I worked for event companies; one company specialised in Moroccan-themed events and the other, hen and stag weekends all over the world. The reason I’m telling you this is because I feel like I’ve seen it all when it comes to weddings….

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…

The Worthing Dome Wedding Open Day 

This is a tricky one… my friends at The Worthing Dome are hosting an open day on the same day as my Outdoor Extravaganza in Hampshire. Why not mark it out in your diary as one big wedding weekender and go to both events? Hell, you could even go dress shopping on the Saturday and binge-watch wedding movies on the Saturday night? While my fair in Hampshire is a festival-style extravaganza with lots of suppliers exhibiting, The Worthing Dome are simply setting up their beautiful rooms, for a ceremony and reception, and their events team will be on hand to…

Super Chilled London Wedding

Photographer Benjamin Stuart talks us through Fran & Rob’s simple, stripped back wedding at the pub where they first met. “They didn’t want anything traditional, or cliché, no cutting the cake or first dance.” “Their wedding was all about close friends and family. Excellent food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere.” “Fran is a stylist and works in fashion, so she knows lot of great hair and makeup artists. She also dressed Rob and he looked incredible; simple and elegant.” “Fran’s incredible dress and long coat combo was perfectly on point for the chilly March day.” “Fran & Rob had their…

I am a BIG fan of a mood board, mainly because I can start with just one item or colour I love and work outwards from there.

Bold, dark and edgy? Or…
