Rose Tinted Weddings

My business started out as a ‘vintage’ wedding business. It started with a single vintage china side plate and grew to a huge hire collection. The business was called Doily Days back then. I did other things but ‘vintage’ was always the theme holding it together. Two years ago when I rebranded to Margot’s Wedding, the idea was the business would become… well, less vintage. We’d evolved and we wanted the brand to represent that. For me, even at the beginning it wasn’t about being vintage as such, I was never a vintage aficionado. It was just about adding elements…

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…

How Interior Trends are Influencing Weddings

It makes complete sense to me! I love interiors and I love weddings so why should they be separated? We invest in pieces for our home that we want to look at every day, and the styling of your wedding day should give you the same feeling. It has always been a great starting point for me; I spend hours pinning interior inspiration, which I then filter through to my wedding designs. The current trend for lots of floral patterns, clashing prints and chintz makes me very happy as I love using this style within my weddings. When couples start…

Why do I need a Wedding Stylist?

November 12, 2019 | Styling, Top tips, Wedding stylist

Sally Gallis from Events by Design thinks a wedding stylist is worth their weight in gold… but she would right because she’s a wedding stylist?! Over to Sally to educate and convince you… A good stylist is like a little magical pixie who (from a guest’s point of view) pops in on the morning of your wedding, makes it all pretty and disappears again. From a couple’s point of view, it’s a bit different. They are still like a magical pixie, but sooooo much more too. You might be one of those people who have amazing ideas but just need…

In what way are your installations used at weddings? A. All the works are bespoke. I design and create installations to reflect each couple’s personal taste.
