Supplier Spotlight – Outside & Instant

I have always found other people’s lives interesting. How they live, their upbringing, how they got into their careers etc. I find creative people’s lives especially interesting because they’ve followed their passion and have actively created a life on their own terms. As we continue to live in lockdown and get back to basics, it’s a good time to reflect on life, what you’ve done, how you’ve got to where you are, whether you’re happy… and thinking about the direction your future will take. Today we focus our spotlight on Hampshire-based Outside & Instant, a husband and wife team who…

Sunshine and some sort of activities like yoga or kayaking. A good dose of…

Fun Wedding Photography

Let’s imagine you’ve planned your wedding, the day’s been and gone, the honeymoon’s over and your photographer has finally delivered your eagerly anticipated edited wedding photos. What photos are you going to cherish and why? Lets think of reasons you might love a photo: Because you look super cool/gorgeous (good angle, good light, you look svelte, a natural smile etc etc). Because it oozes emotion (a heartfelt moment with your father before he walks down the aisle, the first look moment, speech laughs/tears etc). Because it’s heartwarming (a happy moment with a child or elderly relative perhaps). Because there’s a…

Margot’s Party

Happy New Year! I’m definitely easing myself back in gently… I’m feeling rather fragile. I’ve caught up with my emails and I’m scheduling some blog posts but I won’t be back with full force until next week! Christmas is hectic isn’t it? I think it’s too much. Who do we talk to about toning it down? My December also involves my son’s birthday and my birthday so I get an extra amount of overwhelm! It’s been a brilliant one but my word I’m glad to be getting back to normal. Next week you can expect more news of our next…

Getting to know… Barbara K Photography

Today we get to know North London-based photographer Barbara K. The about page on her website reads: “I’m French but I’m nice. It simply means that the first time we meet, there will be an awkward moment when I hesitate between shaking your hand, giving you a hug or politely bowing… also, occasionally I’ll be calling ‘cufflinks’, ‘handcuffs’. Q. What makes you happy? A. The simple pleasures of life: a sunny morning, a nice cup of coffee, birds singing, trees in bloom, a good laugh, a chat with a friend… you get the idea. Q. What does a perfect weekend…

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…

West Sussex Worthing Wedding

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…

Cool London Wedding

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…
