The Notebook Styled Shoot @ Gins Barn

At the moment, with everything I’m doing with The Boat Shed, I’m drawn to anything coastal and nautical… so when Tasha Mae contacted me with this styled shoot I jumped at the chance to feature it. I just love the arty, elegant interior of Gins Barn. It’s so inviting with its high beamed ceilings, muted colour palate and faded grandeur. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the amazing flowers with the oars (I think we’ll be borrowing that idea for The Boat Shed!) and can we take a minute to appreciate the chickens who put in an appearance please? It’s always really…

Styled Shoot – The Boat Shed @ Salt

If you haven’t heard about my new venue project you must have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks… but in case you haven’t, here’s the news. I’m working with the owners of Wicor Marine in Portchester, Hampshire to open their boat shed for weddings. I’ve been shouting about The Boat Shed project from the rooftops on Facebook and Instagram and have announced we’re launching with a wedding fair on 8th March 2020. And holy moly has there been a lot of interest in the fair! A week after announcing the date we’re two thirds full….

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…

Updates from Margot’s HQ

I am SO sorry for radio silence on the blog recently. I went camping at the beginning of the month and broke my toes, then when I got back I was mega busy trying to finish issue 15 before I went to France for my best friend’s wedding. I got back on Sunday and have been trying to sort my life out in the presence of my three-year-old son. He’s gone back to nursery today so I’m back at my desk… I think I left part of my brain in France though. Later in the week/early next week (when the…

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…

Happy Friday folks! My weekend is going to be far from relaxing as I work though all the last minute jobs for Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza on Sunday! I’m really looking forward to this outdoor festival-style wedding fair we’re hosting with Kissing Gate Events and I pray the weather forecast doesn’t change… at the moment it’s looking like rain, thunder and lightening tonight and Saturday, and then clear skies and sunshine on Sunday! Our exhibitors are showcasing within the traditional pole marquee, the bell tents are up, we’ve got campervans, caravans, workshops, a horse box bar, horse box toilets, kids activities,…

COMPETITION – WIN Free Entry to Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza!!

Hey hey hey! It’s flippin’ July already! Which means Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza is happening in less than three weeks (gulp)… The event is being held on Sunday 21st July at Thornton Woods in Titchfield, Hampshire – a very special secluded spot that’s available to hire for weddings via Kissing Gate Events. I was there on Saturday to help out at a wedding (which will soon feature on the blog). I’d been to the site a couple of times but it made all the difference seeing it in all its glory. The tables were set, the bar was open, the Pimms…
